UK Collectors, Modelmatic now has 2017 Matchbox Best of World in stock.

Just a quick heads up that UK-based diecast seller Modelmatic has 2017 Matchbox Best of World in stock.

If you need a reminder, this is the 6-car set released late last year, and some of the models are sporting Hot Wheels Real Riders.  The Lamborghini Miura is the must-have, but there really is no slouch in the bunch.

Grab them at Modelmatic here, and be sure to check out the huge variety of diecast available in the store.


  1. Ok, stupid question, but I think I might be behind on information...

    Have these already been released in the U.S. and I completely missed them, or are they yet to be released here? Gonna be disappointed if it's the former...

    1. If they were released already then I guess only 1 store in all of the continental US got them. I go to a lot of stores weekly, Wal-Mart, target, ToysRUs, various grocery stores and have not seen any of these since they were announced. Welcome to the world of Frustrating Matchbox Distribution.

    2. They are hanging in most Meijers around West Michigan.

    3. I haven't been able to spot them yet probably because it TAKES SO LONG to stock them ... i'm basically referring to the MD area.
      I noticed some Walmart stores are better than others which means some SUCK!
      TRU stores can be fairly good at stocking premium HW's and there are a lot left over from the last Best of MBX line.
      I'm still waiting and hope we see the Best of World line soon. Seems like it takes quite a few months.
      If it's not the store manager who lack motivation it's a distribution problem. Come on get your act together people!

    4. Dealers have had them for some time. One reason they haven't hit Toys R Us yet is likely that last year's versions are still hanging in many stores.

  2. The ones I want are sold out already...sigh...
