I figured it has been awhile since I jumped into Matchbox for the Saturday Showcase, and I think I picked a good one. Mattel and Toyota must be on a break, because it has been awhile since we have seen anything new Toyota-wise. So that means we look at previous releases.
And while Hot Wheels has produced some memorable Toyotas, you can’t ignore Matchbox, especially in the off-road department. FJ40, two Tacomas, and this beauty. Enjoy:

EDIT: Duplicate post, ugh.
SO close to having all the releases…I’m only lacking the tan one, which is a shame because it’s true that it’s one of the best. This truck suffers from the model shrinkage that larger vehicles have to undergo to stay at Mattel’s price limit, so I wish it were bigger, but the casting itself is spot-on.
