We’ve already done the Best of Matchbox Tournament, so now let’s turn our attention strictly to the New Models.
The polls below are all Basic New Model releases in 2022. Right above this post are the Moving Parts New Model polls, so there is a lot to vote on.
I’ll save the full analysis for later, but honestly if I were to pick a brand of the year, Matchbox would be seriously considered. There are a lot of great new models, one of which you will pick in the polls below, but it’s more the incredible output. All of these models below are licensed. Add to that all the Moving Parts New Models. It wasn’t that long ago that we would see 25 new castings in a given year, with more than half generic. Matchbox has come a seriously long way. Abe Lugo and team deserve a ton of credit for the battles they’ve waged, and honestly won, to make Matchbox the best it has been in a long time.
So let’s vote.
The video showcase is below, followed by the polls, and the photos. Study it all, and then make your pick for the Best model released, as well as the model that didn’t live up to the hype.
