Greetings once again fellow collectors...
We are back with even more sneaks of upcoming models, this time with "no theme" being the theme. Last week was street cars, this week is more of a hodge-podge of upcoming models. So with Mattel's permission, we will get right to it.
We will start this week with an upcoming Mission Force model. I like to show first the models that might illicit the strongest reaction, and this one is a definite candidate. To refresh your memory, the Mission Force sets are themed gift packs that contain one standard model, a Real Working Rig, and two Sky Busters. Various themes have included Airport, Space, Police, Fire, etc, and now we have a UFO pack. I don't know what other models are included in the pack, but I do know we will see a VW T2 Bus:
Yes, your initial reaction might be a little shock, but c'mon, a clean deco over sharp black looks nice. And I have asked the team if it glows in the dark. I haven't heard back. I guess the only criticism I have of this model is that aliens are so late 90's, early 2000's. Even vampires are out now. Zombies is the in creature, so I guess we must demand a Zombie-Hunter Mission Force set for 2014.
Next up is a brand new model, the Amphi Flyer. It is Matchbox's new hovercraft, the team's own creation. You can see three propellers in the back:
And some other new decos for 2013:
Ford F150 SVT Raptor
Have at it, and let us know what you think. I am sure there will be a whole array of opinions.
Next week we preview a very new development on Sky Busters.
