I would typically post my Matchbox E Case Unboxing video and be done with it. But this one had a little surprise. I opened it and saw this love note on the video, so watch the video first. You will see the contents of the E Case I received from A&J Toys, plus a look at the first two Sapphire Gem chase models. But you will know what the love note is when I pull it from the case:
How was that for an error? Pulling an error in the last case was cool, but this one tops it:
I have seen stickers (usually an inspectors arrow), and tape, and even band aids (eeeeeewwwwww) on models in blisters, but nothing like this. And the cool thing? Check the date stamp on the bottom:
It is a little hard to see it, but look closely. The stamp is “L07”. That is actually a date stamp, so you know when the model was actually produced. L stands for the year, meaning 2018, and “07” is the week. The 7th week of 2018 was the week of the February 11th. See where I am getting? That is the week of Valentine’s Day.
So to whatever worker in Thailand who stuck a Valentine’s Day heart sticker on a Yamaha Bike in order send a Valentine’s greeting: I got it, and I love it, and yes I love you too. I’ll be holding on to this one.
