Honestly, this may be the most exciting 5-pack for Matchbox to release in a long time.

Matchbox hinted at a NYPD 5-pack a few months ago on their Instagram feed, showing two unlicensed castings sporting NYPD livery:
But now we get to see the whole pack. Lamley Reader Armando Gonzalez Plasensia of Mexico was lucky enough to find the brand new Matchbox NYPD 5-pack, and shared the photo below with us:
How cool is that? Suburban Police, Dodge Charger Police, and GMC Wrecker, all NYPD'd up. Collectors have long clamored for a 5-pack where all models sport the same deco theme, and here it is. They have also clamored for more licensed liveries, and it doesn't get more recognizable than New York's Finest. Sure, I would much rather have a licensed model instead of the unlicensed police SUV, but there is too much to like to get too concerned. Couple that with the FDNY Hazard Squad released in the latest Matchbox batch, and we have a lot to get excited about.
Hopefully this pack will hit other markets soon. In the meantime, thanks Armando for sharing!
