November 28th Matchbox Ambassador Report, by Dirk Schleuer...

The latest Ambassador Report from Dirk is now up.  Read what he has to say about some of the changes in how info is released, and follow the link provided in his text for the report.

As he states, the best way to ask questions to the Matchbox team is though the Ambassador, so be sure to email him any questions you might have.  This team will answer them.  His email address:

And above all, major congrats to the Ambassador!  You will see what we are talking about in the report...

(Thanks Dirk.)

Hallo Matchbox friends,

You surely were all waiting for the next report. Sorry that it did take some time to send it but after you read it you will surely understand the delay.

Things have changed a bit. In the last years the ambassador report was "THE" source for new info from the Matchbox team to the collectors.
You did get all the imformation thru the report - monthly, two-weeks, weekly at least not on the spot.
Times have changed with the new team at Matchbox and I personally think to the better in this direction. You do get pics and info direct from the team on Instagram.
I dare to repeat some major ones in my report here. And also the Lamley blog shows news when they are new!

So for that direction the ambassador report and even my role is surely not so important as it was in the recent years with other teams involved.
For the other direction bringing your concerns, ideas and thoughts forward to the team the ambassador position is still the channel to use.
But of course I need your input! So still feel free to contact me with your belongings.

My friend Marcel Bakker did write an article about the "my first Matchbox" series. Have fun reading it.  The My First Matchbox range Page 1.PDF  You can change the Page 1 to any Page up to 16 or you use the overview on our club page:
We are work on a solution to have all pages in one document but the pages are quite big at the moment showing good quality pics!

I'm personally busy at the moment with our local XMas club meeting and setting up the new moyshop which will surely be ready in the next couple of days ;)
And also I do send out new flyers like this to our club members:

Have a wonderful winter time.



  1. Ah... where are the "new model reveals" that are usually the highlight of Ambassador reports?

    1. BTW, I forgot to mention, seeing that PDF and just looking at those pegs full on Matchbox cars was incredibly awesome! Please! I want to see that everywhere! More Matchbox please!

    2. You will need and Instagram account or keep watching here as it appears John is getting much to preview what the Ambos used to do.

    3. I had to make an Instagram account just for this. And I hate that. And even after that, there wasn't much to see. The previous Ambassador, Larry Scaduto, was much better in making these reports. I really hope Dirk learns and fixes these issues.

  2. Well, there is a new Malibu Marauder... Is it real or a generic? Because of course Malibu is a Chevy, and Marauder sounds like Ford.

  3. Little bit of confusion on two things...
    1) Porsche *Cayman*
    2) Lamborghini Cheetah was never made or prototyped or anything, the LM002 came out, but the Cheetah was a concept car....

  4. WOW, those pictures of the pegs in Bali, are a thing i remember so well from decades ago, and hope to see again one day, I am not sure about the new look Ambo report, I had to join Instagram, which i didnt really want to do, but to get decent pics and comment on them i had no choice, its just another thing that my details have been attached too i am not happy about.

    I am soooooo looking forward to getting hold of the Black jaguar F-Type, i hope MBX dont do a one or two colour combo and remove it, this model can run for years with various colours and racing themes, it is a shame the Blue Brothers version is dire, in comparison, along with the Jeep Cherokee, the future for orange is looking to be awesome....
