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?

  5. I'm a GM truck guy (classic, present, future [concept]) enthusiast so this one in multiple copies will be sought by me. I can't wait for the recolors to show up and maybe even special deco's too. A+ to Matchbox for this offering!

  6. This is a good diecast model, but the Majorette version has been created to a higher standard in my opinion. Nevertheless, it's good to see Matchbox may be on the way up! :)

  7. You are right. by far, the Majorette version of the Silverado is better in details, front grill, clear headlights and overall proportions I think. But for the actual, and generally dissapointing situation of today's Matchbox, it's OK, i'll grab one or two of these.

  8. I love the truck! Second fave new model forthe 2014 Matchbox year. Even with the chorme grill (don't bother about the headlights) and the rear light tempos. Sexy looking truck!

  9. My type of truck, nice lines, cool color, showroom fresh! I'll buy a few of these and a few of any future color variations. Black would be my choice as the next color.

  10. Yep! I know the Silverado is not a truck that's everyone's fave, but we all actually like it and cheer it because Matchbox did a perfect job on it. The blue paint, the rear tempos, (don't bother about the head light tempos and the chorme grill was not to be expected in chorme for me), and the mirrors added! Happy truck! I like this job Matchbox has made. Grabbing this truck immediately when this thing comes out the pegs...
