Majorette dedicates an entire 5-pack to one casting. Might as well be the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT.
So I wonder how a Hot Wheels or Matchbox 5-pack loaded with the exact same model would fly. Maybe it depends on the model. It would be a risk to be sure. And it won't happen.
Themes obviously happen. Sometimes the models share a similar livery. Sometimes they come from the same carmaker. But never the same casting.
But Majorette did it. With a very cool casting to boot. I don't know my Majorette history, so I don't know if this is something they have done before. But they did with the Mercedes AMG GT. And I like it.
Since I don't live in a Majorette market, I have no idea how well this set will sell. Maybe some of you in Europe and elsewhere can give us an idea. But I am curious. It seems they have done it right, meaning even though the pack contains the same model, there are very different executions. Two road versions, a police car, a race car, and test car. Granted, two of the models have already been released, and one - the police car - is part of a playset, but it is nice to have them together.
And cool packaging to boot. Still couldn't keep me from opening it:
The set is an instant collection. Of a model that I think is one of the best Majorette has done the last couple of years. Still, the wheels. Other than that, a great set to have.
