It's Election Day! What was the Best Matchbox Licensed New Model in 2016?
I hope you are wearing your "I Voted" sticker today. It is our right and duty to make our voice heard.

There has been a concerted effort to Make Matchbox Great Again, and I'm With Them without a doubt. 2016 saw a major step forward, and now, as part of the 2016 Lamley Awards, it is our duty to pick the Best Licensed New Model.
