@matchboxworld has shown us a sneak peek of the upcoming Dirty Mudders #matchbox 5-pack coming soon. I can't wait to get my grubby mitts on it. I see that one of the models is sporting tan wheels. We haven't seen them lately but there have been some issues with them over the years. This #gmcterradyne was the MB96 issue for 2008, although only in the US range. It was not available in the ROW or LAAM ranges that were also available at the time. It came with tan wheels & loads of mud spray along the sides. & Yes, me being me, & bring totally crazy, I did find lighter & darker shades of grey.

Well I think it's time for a post of one of the best #camaros that #matchbox has made. The awesome MB336 '71 #chevycamaro #z28 in its 3 Superfast versions that contained the classic Matchbox style 5-spoke wheels. After the way too blingy wheels of the 2004 issue, #mattel came up with a new wheel for their #classiccars that were reminiscent of the early Lesney Superfast wheels of the early 1970s. In 2005 it took the number 19 slot, but the US market had a different version to the ROW market (US - orange, ROW - green). Both had the same detailing & dual white stripes. Then in 2006 it was released as one of the "Streakers" models that was reminiscent of the beginnings of tampo. In the mid-1970s Lesney received their first tampo machine & went a bit nuts with wild designs on models. So to celebrate they released some of the 2006 Superfast series the same way. I have to admit, this didn't seem too out there compared to some of the others they released that year. I would say it is probably my favourite Streakers design.

Singing "I love you for your #pinkcadillac
Crushed velvet seats
Riding in the back
Cruising down the street". Classic Bruce Springsteen. Weirdly it was a B-side to Dancing in the Dark. It was other people who released it as a single & made it popular. But #pinkcadillacs do seem to be iconic. Still waiting for @matchboxworld to release a pink Cadillac One. These 2 #cadillacs are the classic MB500 '55 #fleetwood with the light pink being the Elvis Presley version which the casting was created for. It is actually the Avon 4-pack version with lace wheels rather than single issue with diorama. The dark pink was the first time it was used in a standard series, as it was in the 2006 Vintage Classics 5-pack.

Picked up the Matchbox Jurassic World Legacy Collection 5-Pack at Target today. Really like the Mercedes-Benz re-color. Matchbox is killing it in 2018! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

It's #eurotuesday time. I begin with a 1987-88 TP-110 twin pack issue #matchbox #matrarancho in orange. I picked this up brand new at the time. It's still in perfect condition after 30 odd years.

I finish off my #bluemondaymatchbox theme today with a classic #lesney #matchbox #leyland #articulatedtruck in blue with silver dump. Launched in 1981 as MB30 it only lasted the 1 year in the US range but continued in the ROW range until 1984. Of course there is the shade variation as the example on the right is a lighter shade to the one on the left. But if you look closely it also doesn't have the Leyland letters cast into the cab directly under the front window. Early production examples were left blank with the letters appearing on examples later in 1981 & continuing from thereon.

I don't know what it's like in other countries, but here in the UK it is pretty hot. Last month we were dealing with freezing winds, snow, awful weather wondering if winter was ever ending. Then somehow we skipped spring & jumped to summer. So nice weather brings out the fun. Like attaching a boat on a trailer to the back of your car & heading to somewhere nice for a short break. These #lesney #matchbox #boats are different shades of blue. Arriving as MB9 in 1967 it went unchanged until 1971 although the trailer did turn to #superfast wheels in 1970. Even when it returned as a twin pack issue in 1976 it was still the same blue/white combination. It took then until 1982 to create a new combination. So for many years of production you will find some variation in the shade of blue. I hooked these up to 2 #renault #r5 models for fun.

The #matchbox '75 #chevy #stepside casting has had 2 releases with a farming themed side design. It seems to be their go-to casting for a #pickuptruck to be included in a farm themed 5-pack. The blue was the 2010 Farm pack, the red is from the 2015 Farm pack.

The new #matchbox MB1124 #fleetwood Southwind Storm #rv casting from the #jurassicworld Legacy series sports a variation for those who like them. The tampo printing on the side is being found in a light blue or a purplish blue shade. Oh I do enjoy finding variations.

I finish my #porsche day with a pair of #matchbox #porsche959 models. The real vehicle was, when first launched, the fastest standard production road going vehicle ever made. The model was made at the same time, bring launched as MB7 in 1986 in silver. It turned white in 1987 before becoming more tampo printed in 1988 & beyond. I have always loved the simplicity of the first 2 releases with just a simple door design. Both can be found with different wheels. These happen to both be 5-arch wheel versions. 8-dot wheels are common too.

Well I had been having a bit of a Jurassic blitz, so enough of that. Let's look at the past. ๐Ÿ˜€ Yeah? No? Funny? Not? Well I giggled as I wrote it. As long as I amuse me, I'm good. Here we have a 1972 MB27 #matchbox #mercedesbenz 230SL in yellow, sporting a black interior & wide wheels. As was often the case at the time it had an opening feature, which in this case was the doors. Just think, this model is as old as I am. If I only looked that good at this time. But this #mercedessl is a classic beauty.

I'm loving all this stuff, & these #jeep #wrangler castings from the classic #jurassicpark film are just amazing. Plus I found a cool error.

Smyth's UK. Yeah this is totally unexpected. Jurassic World 5-pack plus singles, & the Legacy set too. Hubba Hubba. This is in the UK. Not the USA stores (Target have the Legacy exclusive in USA, it appears Smyth's may have an exclusive Legacy in the UK). Asda UK will be taking what is being sold in Walmart USA so no legacy (currently not sure if standard &/or battle damage yet). If you scroll to pic 2 you may notice a large Jeep too. That is also at Smyth's. Oh I'm like a kid. This is fun. Thanks @matchboxworld for these awesome models.

I am full of useless but important trivia. Like today is the 80th anniversary of the debut of #superman as the Action Comics number 1 (cover date of June 1938) first hit newsstands on April 18th 1938. The comic featured his debut & the iconic front cover of him lifting a car over his head. The best condition example of that comic sold for over $3.2million in 2014. I don't think these #matchbox #chevyssr models depicting him will ever reach that amount. But they serve as a good reminder of this iconic comic book character, & the influence he, & others like him have had in our lives since. The burgundy #chevy is from the 2004 Justice League 5-pack. At that time 3 of each of the 5-pack models were sold as singles in alternate colours, & the blue example was 1 of the 3 from that pack.

At that time 3 of each of the 5-pack models were sold as singles in alternate colours, & the blue example was 1 of the 3 from that pack. #chevrolet  #chevroletssr  #chevypickup  #chevroletpickup  #matchboxmodels  #matchboxtoys  #matchboxcollectors  #matchboxcollection  #matchboxdaily  #matchboxhunter  #matchboxdiecast  #toycollectors  #toycollection  #toyhunter  #toyhunting  #toydaily  #toydiecast  #diecastmatchbox  #diecasttoys  #diecastcollectors  #diecastcollection  #diecasthunter  #diecasthunting  #diecastholic  #diecastsyndicate

Continuing on with #eurotuesday with the #matchbox 2005 USA exclusive version of the Superfast number 31 #vw #microbus #conceptvehicle in bronze. Originally this 1 of "up to" 15,500 (the production run was 15,000 but they added the up to an extra 500 just in case of a mis-calculation as they are unnumbered) began life in their Chinese factory. It was in quite a dark shade & the windows were a light smoke. However, for some reason there was a tiny run right at the end after the casting had been transferred to their Thailand factory. It is quite noticeably different. A very bright light bronze & if you look carefully the windows are so dark they are almost black. This is not an easy variation to track down. Most will be the China based version.

It's #eurotuesday time so about time I remind us of when #matchbox used to do #ferrari models. I am a fan of same livery different colour models, & these 2 #ferrarif40 models were the basic range issues in 1997 & 1998. The yellow was the 1997 MB24 US or MB70 ROW, & the white was the 1998 MB58. After debuting in 1989 this was the beginning of the ROW range seeing different versions as they had the same basic design (with small variations) all the way through until then. The US range had seen some really out there designs. I liked these with the stripe & exaggerated prancing horse on the front.

Well I had to. I couldn't do a #bluemondaymatchbox & not do a post consisting of shades. This #matchbox #morganaeromax was the 2011 MB11 sporting a Union flag design on the roof of the blue car in its last year as a basic range issue. Of course I had to find lighter & darker shades of blue for my collection didn't I. Of course I would love @matchboxworld to make another #morgan casting for the range. The #aeromax is no longer produced but I think they should make either a Roadster for a classic look or perhaps the Aero8 for a modern twist on a classic look. I know the Morgan Motor Company itself were thrilled to have Matchbox make a model of one of their cars. I know they would love to get another.

Today is going to be a #bluemondaymatchbox day. I start with a classic trio of #lesney #matchbox #amx #amcjavelinamx models. They were from the 1976 TP-3 Pony Trailer twin-pack set. There are shades of blue there as well as 3 different wheel types. 5-spoke, 5-spoke square & 5-arch. All feature opening doors as later issues saw them closed.

The CJ5 & Jeep 4x4 (Wrangler?!) were included in the 1997 #solidgolddancers challenge series. Slight variation on the colour of gold between the two. No relation to the early 80s TV show, but I could not resist.

I can't believe I totally missed the sneaky little variation that @matchboxworld added to the Color Changers version of the #matchbox MB1066 '56 #gmcpickup last year. I picked up a set of these while I was in USA (as they don't sell them over here in the UK) but never noticed it until I was almost due to return. But didn't find any more before I returned home. I finally got the other rear bed variation in my recent @thelamleygroup care package. When the casting was originally created for the basic range they only made it with an empty bed so I just wasn't prepared. Now the question is will we see the normal MB985 version with items in the rear at any point? Also, I keep calling the new Color Changer casting's MAN number "MB Battle of Hastings". If they ever do another version of it, they should get the word "Hastings" incorporated into the tampo print.

A couple of burgundy British cars from the Universal era. #matchbox released the MB1 ROW or MB41 US #jaguarxj6 in 1986 lasting until 1990 in the basic range but only in that colour. During its last year the #rollsroycesilverspirit joined it in the same colour as MB66 ROW after previously being tan & gold since its debut in 1987. It lasted until 1996. Having previously not been sold in the US market it did pop up twice during that time. In 1990 itself it appeared as MB55, then in 1995 it popped back up as MB73. I'm not sure why they seemed reluctant to sell it in the US market. But then Universal seemed reluctant to sell any #rollsroyce models there. The Silver Shadow II was dropped earlier than in the ROW market & the Silver Cloud wasn't added to the US basic range at all.

I have to say that when I put the latest 2018 #matchbox toy fair #chevycolorado against the 2017 #mercedes 6x6 the attention to duplication is remarkable. If you swipe you see more too. Obviously we know they are both dark bronze with black roof models. The wheels are the exact same too. They also both have a spare wheel in the rear which was also printed. Look at the windows. The exact same pale blue. They both have black bases which form the wheel arches. There is just so much that is the same. I absolutely love it. Way to go @matchboxworld team. There was serious thought to this year's offering in their current theme.

In 1986 #matchbox released a '62 #chevy #corvette in the new Superfast series launched that year. Each model sported new Starburst wheels that supposedly ran smoother than normal wheels. It was exclusive in USA. The model appeared in orange throughout the entire 5-year run. In 1987 they expanded into other markets but also included new Laser wheels that looked a little like CDs on the side. The same models were used as the original Superfast but many models turned from flat paints into metallic paints. This turned into a metallic brown. 1988 saw it change to green which lasted until the end of the series. Oddly there has been very little variation in any of these models at all. The only 1 I found anything on was the Superfast issue. I found an unusual one with a white base instead of the usual orange base.

This is (or was) an Atlas Short Tail Crawler #excavator which was first replicated by #matchbox & released in 1981 as MB32. I have no idea why but the debut issue in orangey red sported a cast Atlas name across the rear, but by the end of that first year the name had been scrubbed off the rear with a blank plate put in, & the Atlas name removed from the base. Maybe Atlas felt it wasn't good enough & requested it. Who knows? But the model stayed in the range until 2000. After that we saw a few multipack additions with the last one being a 2008 Construction Kings DVD exclusive model. The yellow one at the front is that version. After 27 years I thought that was it. The casting was retired. But wait, I have seen pics of the new Ocean Construction 5-pack with this casting at the bottom. It's back. I am looking forward to getting that 5-pack & comparing the models. It's always nice to see an old casting return.

When I saw the latest #matchbox Torque Titan which is the exclusive model in the current 9-pack I knew which trailer unit needed to be hooked up to it. In 2006 a Junkyard playset was released & contained 3 standard issue models plus a Tractor Cab pulling this D.U.M.P. tanker on the rear. The look of the Torque Titan just seems to fit in with the trailer perfectly. There's a shade difference in the brown of both parts but apart from that I think they look great together. For those who have not seen the tanker unit before that is exactly how it came. It was designed with the dirty look to it.

In 2006 a Junkyard playset was released & contained 3 standard issue models plus a Tractor Cab pulling this D.U.M.P. tanker on the rear. The look of the Torque Titan just seems to fit in with the trailer perfectly. There's a shade difference in the brown of both parts but apart from that I think they look great together. For those who have not seen the tanker unit before that is exactly how it came. It was designed with the dirty look to it. #matchboxconvoy  #convoy  #matchboxtruck  #matchboxtoy  #matchboxmodel  #matchboxmoment  #matchboxdaily  #matchboxdiecast  #matchboxaddict  #matchboxoriginals  #toytruck  #toydiecast  #toydaily  #toyaddict  #toyfun  #diecasttruck  #diecasttoy  #diecastmatchbox  #diecastmodel  #modeltoy  #modeltruck  #
I'm definitely going to a few less common places on my #eurotuesday trip today. I now move from Romania over to Netherlands. These #matchbox #dafxf #trucks were exclusive models in the 4 batches of 2010 10-packs. 1 different truck for each of the 4 batches. They all contained the same side design for Euro Transport. For those who don't know for a while Matchbox would release 3x 10-packs a quarter (therefore 4 batches a year). 1 pack would be all-exclusive in a theme, the other 2 would have 1 exclusive top right with the others randomly pulled from basic & 5-packs. But for each of the 4 batches each year the same 2 vehicles would appear as the exclusive but in a different colour for each batch.

Here's a country I never feature in my #eurotuesday posts. Romania! Home of the #gheo company. #matchbox have a great deal with them making both the #gheorescue & #gheopredator models. Both have appeared in 2018. The Predator in red which appeared in batch B (should have debuted in A but was delayed) & the Rescue in silver/blue is part of the Ice Voyagers 5-pack.

Well it's #eurotuesday time. I start with Germany & the #matchbox #vwcaddy from the 2009 Euro Edition series that was available in Germany. This was the last model released in a series that began in 2002 exclusive to the German market as "Stars of Germany". Each year a set of 12 models appeared exclusive to their market, although for some reason only 11 appeared in 2009 at first. This model only turned up in later assortments. I do find it funny though that the side design was in English except Schlรผsseldienst which is German for locksmith in the logo (English directly below) & the first tick box has 24 stunden-service which is German for 24 hour service (again English directly below). The rest is all in English. For a model being sold exclusively in a German market I thought it would have been better having it all in German.

Ok, every set has it's weak link and here's the one in the 2018 Matchbox Jurassic World set, imo. The Deep-Dive Sub just doesn't do anything for me. 1 outa 5 โญs.

'10 Textron Tiger, from 2018 Matchbox Jurassic World set. Another cool RAOK from @jorge6609 . Please give Jorge a follow, if you're not already. Great guy!

I know a lot of collectors were not big fans of the #matchbox licensed models of the '00s & into the '10s. But I liked them. It was a chance for some funky & fun designs. During this period my niece was still quite young, & obviously a lot of the licenses were of TV programmes she knew & loved. Like #spongebobsquarepants which saw a number of releases. She was a big #spongebob fan in the mid to late '00s & used to love seeing my models with related pics on the side. Seeing her face smile with these models made them all the more special to me. I am quite amazed with this particular casting. The '55 #chevy #belair #convertible was used 5 times in a SpongeBob theme. At the back we have a 2002 5-pack issue in blue with sea-blue base depicting Patrick. Then it's purple with same side design from the 2003 5-pack. In the middle is blue with pink base & same side design sold as a single issue in 2003. 2004 saw them finally come up with a new side design as Squidward took over. The purple is the 5-pack version, the silvery blue the single pack issue. Whenever I see these I'm reminded of fun times with my niece, & that's always a good feeling.

It's hard to believe that the '98 #jeep #wrangler was first released by #matchbox in 1999. At first it just contained roll bars but in 2001 a luggage section was added too. This particular casting (MB486) has been ticking along pretty regularly ever since. The latest addition is part of the 2018 Globe Travelers set & still looks as fresh & sharp as the day it debuted almost 20 years ago. I love this casting & was wondering if the green Jeep set model from 2016 was the last one. I'm glad it wasn't. There's still life for this casting yet. Give us more.

Where I work Friday is often known as dress down day for many people. So rather than turning up in work clothes they wear simple plain clothes. No need for anything fancy. So with that in mind I thought I would show off a few #matchbox #roversterling models that could follow that same route. Dress down Friday. No need for fancy tampo printing & detailing. Splash of paint; job done. It saw 2 of these. The plain white is a Graffic Traffic issue from 1992. The plain yellow is a German exclusive Christmas World Rallye issue from 1991/92. Both have no detailing at all. No need for dressing up. They are good as they are.
