Preview: Matchbox Kroger-Exclusive Candy Series

Coming to a Kroger near you. That means, Ralph’s, Food4Less, Smith’s, City Market, Fry’s, and a whole lot of others. Matchbox indulged its sweet tooth and went full candy for this Kroger set, and they sent me a set to preview. A nice mix of licensed models, packaged in some cool car art. Here is […]

Preview: 2019 Matchbox Moving Parts Mix 3

How quickly have we gotten used to Matchbox sporting the opening parts again? Seems like a natural fit does it not? Mix 3 has hit in Australia, and will hit elsewhere soon, and this mix is certainly the biggest and most diverse. We have seen a mixture of throwback models and new castings, and this […]

Case Report: Matchbox 2019 N Case

So I’ve lost count of what mix this is. It’s N, but Matchbox didn’t start at A in 2019, so this is maybe the 5th or 6th? Nonetheless it’s a good case, so let’s go through it. Wheel Collectors got their shipment yesterday, and gave us a quick vid and photos of the contents, so […]

Yep, Matchbox made a Sriracha Food Truck

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 […]

Lamley Daily: Matchbox ’75 Chevy Caprice

Model: Matchbox ’75 Chevy Caprice Line: Matchbox 2019 Mainline Where to get it: Hobby dealers and hitting stores. How many of these will stay intact? Probably not many. At least of this first version. Customizers are salivating for it. I have heard it over and over again since Matchbox announced this one last July. “I’m […]

Case Report: Matchbox 2019 M Case (Mix 5)

I have wondered what the most anticipated new Matchbox model would be this year. I thought possibly the Mercedes Wagon I featured earlier today, but it might be the Caprice. It hits in the M (Mix 5) Case, and my guess is it will be gobbled up quickly. If you want to know what else […]

Model: Matchbox ’80 Mercedes-Benz W123 Wagon Line: 2019 Matchbox Mainline It’s been awhile since I’ve dropped a photo preview on the Lamley Blog. Consider this a Valentine’s Day gift I guess. Love certainly is in the air because I am way into this model. Matchbox has done a model they seem meant to do – […]

Matchbox Mix 4 (L Case) is appearing in Australia

Sometimes East to West, sometimes West to East, or North to South. Let’s go South to North. Mattel threw a couple of new products Down Under this month, and our friends in Australia are showing.

Here they are! Your 2018 Lamley Award Winners!

There is one strong theme that came out of the Lamley Award polling in 2018: It was a really good year. The Lamley Awards certainly don’t speak for all of the 1/64 world. They speak for this little corner we’ve formed. HW Super Treasure Hunts and Premium lines, plus new models from both Mattel brands […]

Case Report: Matchbox 2019 C Case

It says K, which is some new internal coding, so maybe I will call this Mix 3? Whatever you call it, the third case from Matchbox is here. Wheel Collectors got their shipment today, and as always shared the contents with us. You can find the models at their store: Matchbox 2019 C Case at […]

Unboxing: Matchbox 2019 B Case

Matchbox has needed to take on a classic 911.  I have said for years that the original 911/912 is a Matchbox no-brainer, but when talking to the design team I always got a little pushback.  The reason?  Porsche overkill. It’s true.  We have seen a lot of Porsches in 1/64 lately.  But unlike a few […]
