I'm glad @matchboxworld came by and bought a few matchbox and hooked me up with this bad ass pin for the 65th anniversary! Just want to thank you for stopping by the show and saying hi to everyone! Pretty awesome and much appreciated 🙌🙏! #socalcollector#thelamleygroup#matchbox#matchboxworld
The 2010 Ford Transit Connect from the 2018 Metro Transit 5 pack by Matchbox. The model has a newly revised base but an extetnal review of the model did not readily discern any noticeable changes. Perhaps there were modifications on the inside of the model? I did note the new model weighs one milligram less than its predecessor. It us the nicest looking model in the pack.
This Jeep model by Matchbox as released in the Jurassic World Legacy Collection has potential for more variations. In its current guise as No. 18, it was seen in the original Jurassic Park movie being used to drive Dr. Grant, Ian, and Ellie around the park. However, it also makes a cameo appearance in Jurassic World in the scene where Owen and Claire are in the garage hiding from the Indominis Rex. Unit 18 is wrecked in that scene. However, next to Unit 18 was an identical Unit 29. This unit also appeared in the first movie as it was used to transport Dr. Hammond and Gennaro the attorney. Presumably, both Jeeps were stored in the garage since the first movie. In Jurassic World Jeep 29 is driven by the two children, Zach and Gray, to return to the main part of the park. Unit 29 would be an easy Matchbox variation to make. All you need to do is change the number.
A comparison of the '14 Mercedes-Benz G-class model by Matchbox as released in the recent Jurassic World series as compared to the vehicle used to promote the movie. Unit number 5 was used by the hero Owen, Chris Pratt's character, along with Ops Manager Claire in the movie to find the two youngsters gone astray in the Gyrosphere. A similar model, but with unit number 7 designation, was used later in the movie where Owen, Claire, Zach, and Gray back away from the flood of people breaking through a gate to avoid dino slaughter and then drive to the Raptor paddock. Could we see the same model with Unit 07 on it in the future?

Finding the blue-grey variation of the MB 1114 Armored Action Truck from Matchbox's Jurassic World line was difficult to do. That is until the local Wal Marts received a refresh wave of Mix A of the series. The stores are now well stocked with the blue-grey version. The blue-grey version has base code K48 which is a much earlier manufacture date than the lighter grey version ( in background left) which has base code L04. The artwork on the blister cards remain unchanged. Local Target stores are also receiving refreshes of Mix A of the Legacy Collection.
