Finds: A new Matchbox Jurassic World 5-pack with a brand new Unimog casting

I didn't expect to see this on a recent visit to Target: Yet another Jurassic World 5-pack from Matchbox, and two new castings.

GIVE THE HOT WHEELS/PERIOD CORRECT MERCEDES-BENZ 190E A CLOSE LOOK. IT’S BONKERS.

So what is up with the headlights on the Hot Wheels Mercedes-Benz AMG GT?

Let me say that is, seriously, one of my best finds this year: It's not a Super, or a Car Culture model, or a rare variation, but it still is a great find.  It isn't even because this one heckuva look for the AMG GT casting.  Black paint with dark rims is a fantastic choice. … Continue reading So what is up with the headlights on the Hot Wheels Mercedes-Benz AMG GT?

I don’t know what to think about the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. I do know I am going to collect the Matchbox version.

When the Matchbox E Assortment appears later this spring, there will be a few models to talk about.  The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe will certainly be one of them.

I think we can call the Matchbox Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 an event model.  Literally, because two out of the three releases so for have been for actual events.  Figuratively, because anytime this model rears its head, it's an event. It's an epic model.  Adding one to the collection is an event. Literal and figurative … Continue reading Here is the Matchbox Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 Leipzig Toy Show Exclusive. All 3 of them.
