Ready for more?
I mentioned in Part 1 of the October report that the 60th Anniversary logo would pop up elsewhere. Some of you have seen the 2013 Toy Fair exclusive that sports the logo, and there will be much more.
As we noted in the August report, there will be eight 9/10-pack exclusives this year, and all of them will display the logo. The castings selected for this mini-range were chosen also with the collector in mind, and will be a bit unique. As was the case in 2012, there will be one exclusive per 9/10-pack, and each will be deco-free save for the logo and simple design on the top surface. This makes for a very unique set. As it was put to me, "Deco is minimum, but the cars are cool." I like cool cars.
These model selections also open the door for some of the classic car castings we haven't seen lately to return to the Matchbox range. Classic cars have taken a bit of a back seat with this current direction, so it is nice to see these old friends back.
The 9/10-pack exclusives will be as follows:
Austin Mini Cooper S
Cadillac Sedan de Velle
'76 Corvette T-roof
