Ambassador Update 01 August 2015
Hello Matchbox friends,
As said, I will send you frequent updates, rather than waiting to post the information until a next report is due to be issued. With the new team in charge, we do get pics and info at a stage that is way before we used to get them in previous years. Some info is spread direct thru Instagram “@matchboxworld” and some is coming thru our channels like my reports or the blogs like John and David's Lamley Group (http://lamleydlm.blogspot.de/). To cover you with the information in time as well I will use these updates.
We are proud that we can also show you the backside of the model:
That brings us to the “next step up” models – the Best of World series is surely a home run. Also not tied up in the $1 problem the range, shows 12 super models to collect. My favorite so far is surely this Lambo LM002 with these perfect fitting tires and a nice deco:
But also the design for the standard model corvette to come is worth having a look at. Especially if you check it against some weird decos from the last years:
And yes – I really want to collect your ideas of future models to come … the team is working on 2017 at the moment. As always around 25 new castings are in line. It is just a fact that being a $1 toy not every casting can be a licensed car, even if we only suggest licensed models. I'm pretty sure that we can still name hundreds of good alternatives to do as a Matchbox, but we might help the team more if we also find ideas for “Matchbox originals” (non licensed/generic), models like the glass truck from Larry’s report. So lets make an agreement: you send me your idea of a model, and it is licensed, you also include a Matchbox original idea, or a decoration for an existing casting.
Ok – I will start:
Being German and liking sport cars, I'm really a fan for this unique sports car: Wiesmann (www.wiesmann.com) – you rarely see them on the street, but if you see one you take a second to enjoy it!
