Model: Matchbox 2016 Cadillac Escalade
Line: 2018 Matchbox Mainline
Where to get it: Coming in Mix F
Why it will be added to my collection: I collect realistic, licensed Matchbox models in realistic colors and decos. This one qualifies. And it looks good.
I still need to compare this one to the old Matchbox Escalade, as well as with the Hot Wheels version. This one comes in a great color with crisp – as usual – tampo work. It is a little on the small side, but that is to be expected these days, sadly. So with all that in mind, I’m in. It looks good, especially with the VUM base and grill.
As far as a casting choice, I’m a little meh. I guess the Escalade provides a more interesting contrast with that massive grill, but it does seem like a dated model. If Cadillac was the choice, I would have preferred an ATS-V. But this one is executed well, and that is an easy add to the collection.
