First Look: Matchbox 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500...
Here is yet another upcoming model Mattel allowed us to photograph at the Matchbox Gathering, and that will be hitting the pegs soon.
We imagine a few collectors will be happy about this one. It is a truck. Not a truck with oversized wheels. Not a truck with special equipment in the back. Not a lowered truck (but that hasn't ever been a Matchbox thing). It is just a truck. No crazy tampos, or made up business name on the door. Just a blue truck.
Matchbox has done just a truck many times before, including the Silverado SS a few years ago, so this one fits in nicely. Do we like it? Yeah, for sure. It is, as is the norm with realistic models released by Matchbox, very precise casting-wise. It is probably not a model that will make it into the Lamley collection, as for me most current pickups are a little on the boring side. Of course, if it were just a bit older, and had a vintage vibe, I might be all over it.
Nonetheless, this plain blue truck is probably what the doctor ordered when it comes to Matchbox collectors. What do you think?
