Popping in just to say hello to everyone. Matchbox nerds from around the world have gathered and things are in full swing...
I will dive into the details in my final Ambassador Report, but cake has been eaten, presentations are being made, and camera flashes are running rampant. I will adhere to Lamley's strict "no-humans-in-photos" policy, so here are some of non-human photos the iPhone has taken:
The 1:1 scale Superlift
And finally, an unveiling. As we have shown here, every year Matchbox produces a Code 1 exclusive for collector Everett Marshall's Charity Golf Tournament. Everett had this year's model, the Ford F-550 Fire Pumper, in hand for us to take a gander. It is quite the looker:
We will do a First Look on this one shortly, and also give you all the instructions to grab one for your collection.
I have the Lamley Studio here and have been taking a ton of photos. The exclusives have been photographed, as have the Mattel-donated auction prepros. And finally, I was granted access to the 2014 model prototypes and upcoming models and was able to photograph them all in the studio. My final Ambassador Report should be a good one.
Check back later as we will unveil the Dinner and Dealer models here on Lamley as they are revealed to collectors.
