Case Report: Matchbox kicks off 2016 with a fantastic A Case...
Oh look, ANOTHER Case Report!
I promise this is not becoming the Lamley Case Report Group, as there are plenty of model features coming soon. But when new cases are released, we need to show them.
And that means we are showing a brand new Matchbox case. And just a newly-released case, but the first Matchbox case of 2016. The Matchbox team has been hinting at a great 2016, with an even better 2017 to follow, so now we get to see.
Wheel Collectors just received the new 2016 A Cases, and as always, they grabbed a random case for a Case Report. All the models can be seen and purchases here:
Matchbox 2016 A Case at Wheel Collectors
Matchbox looks to be returning to realism, so let's see if that is true. Here are the models of the A Case, as pulled by Wheel Collectors 3-by-3:
Well, first off, as is a Matchbox tradition, the A case is full of 2015 and 2016 models. It is hard to remember which is which, but once I have the models in hand it will be easier. The Jag F-Type is a 2015 debut, and the gunmetal Alfa and black A100 are 2015 recolors. The Land Cruiser I think is a 2016, as is the Silverado, and I have no idea which of the Cherokees are 2015 or 2016 models. Oh well.
But it is full of good stuff. There are still some unruly generics in this case, but a lot of promise too. What will you be picking up?
