When I opened the latest Matchbox 9-packs, I looked right past the Food Truck. Not a model I have paid too much attention to in the past, and there were other models I wanted to see.
Thankfully, I was actually opening this pack on a livestream on the Lamley YouTube Channel, and a couple of my viewers noticed it for me. I went back, and sure enough, the Food Truck was licensed.
What a crazy cool surprise. Totally unexpected, and surely the result of the efforts of a big hot sauce fan on the Matchbox Team? I don’t know, but this is super cool.
There are no-brainer licensed decos we see from both Mattel brands, but it is surprises like these that are the most fun. With a Supreme Team Transport coming from Hot Wheels, and this Sriracha Food Truck from Matchbox, I would say the sky is the limit when it comes to ideas. Just do a Tillamook Kool Kombi already.
