Model: Matchbox ’17 Honda Civic
Line: 2018 Mainline
Where to get it: Coming this spring.
Why it’s (going into) the collection: Well, it’s a realistic Matchbox, so of course it is going into the collection.
I think the last Honda done by Matchbox was the Insight, and my guess it’s days are done. The Ridgeline keeps on truckin’, but the old Type R hasn’t been seen for awhile. So a new Honda is most welcome. And a nice one at that.
First off, kudos to Matchbox for making the Civic somewhat small. Hot Wheels and Matchbox can’t totally commit to scale, but both brands seem to be doing the best they can to separate the small cars from the big cars (notice I didn’t say vehicles, as a truck will never sit in the right scale compared to a car). We have seen it with two Hondas especially. Hot Wheels’ City Turbo and now this Civic.
Add to that a great color and nicely done details. This is a no-brainer Matchbox.
Look for it in 2018 Mix C.
