I bit of a slow start for Matchbox basic. The 2018 A Case came out late last year, but due to some sort of timing issues, it ended up being a “Best of 2017”-ish case. So the 2018 B Case is the first true 2018 Case, with all new models.
I have no idea why it took so long, but at least Matchbox released the Global Travelers and Chevy Trucks (sans the ’47 Chevy – out soon) mixes in the interim. But let’s get back to the basics.
Wheel Collectors got their shipment late in the week and sent these Case Report photos, as always pulled 3-by-3. You can find all the models available at the WC store here:

The question with these 24-count cases is which models come in multiples. Happily the two new licensed castings, the Ford Skyjacker Truck and Chevy Colorado, do. Lots of off-road and utility in the case theme-wise, with quite a few collectors will like.
