Case Report: Matchbox 2018 G Case

Moving right on through.  Here is where we are in this fast moving 2018.  June is a few days away, and once it hits, we will be able to officially claim that Matchbox will unveil its 2019 New Models next month at the Gathering.  Cool, right?

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  There is still a TON to get to in 2018.  Much of it coming after the Gathering.  And the G Case is here.  Wheel Collectors got their shipment today:

2018 Matchbox G Case at Wheel Collectors

As always, they grabbed one 24-count case and provided a case report.  Here you go:

The Fairlane Wagon is the major highlight of the case, so it is sad to see only one in the case.  Also very cool to see another Boone County Sheriff vehicle as well.

Your thoughts?

  1. This is one great case yo! Even the generics are cool such as duk duk, forklift, dunedog etc. I could get the whole case, which, in matchbox’s case, happens once in every blue moon…

      1. I agree ( as always ) with Amc, we in the UK will possibly never see any of these due to poor distribution in the UK. Most likely have to pay Evilbay prices plus stupid postage charges from either the US or Thailand.

  2. Always nice to see another Boone County vehicle. Some nice recolors too. Overall a decent case. Can’t wait to snag the Fairlane.

  3. This is a very nice case! Like someone mentioned, even the generics are pretty decent. Also, the carryovers are a nice touch just in case for certain collectors that couldn’t find them the first time. Still on the lookout for the Cadillac Escalade and Mazda CX-5. Also have to lookout for the Fairlane Wagon, Chrysler 300, BMW i3, and Jeep Gladiator.

  4. This is a nice case! Like Lucky889 mentioned, even the generics are pretty decent, even though I still won’t get them. Also, the carryovers from the F case are a nice touch, especially for those who couldn’t find them the first time. Still on the lookout for the Cadillac Escalade and Mazda CX-5. As for this case, gotta get me the Ford Fairlane Wagon, Chrysler 300, BMW i3, Chevrolet Suburban, and Jeep Gladiator. So pretty much, more than half the case which is a first for me in like five years!

  5. Not a horrible case, but not all that exciting either. I’ll likely pick up 3 of these models if I find them; Datsun 510, BMW i3 and Mazda CX-5. I hope to see a recolor of the Mazda soon. I gotta say it looks incredibly boring in the silver and gray deco they chose, especially when the real vehicle comes in a very eye catching metallic red or blue.
