Matchbox mix

Here are some Matchbox scale models I’ve bought over the past few years.

This ATV 6×6 is from 2011 and is the first release. I must have thought it was pretty cute, but now I don’t really like it that much. It will be among the first to go if ever my wife and I decide to let some models go.

This Ice Cream Van is from 2011 and looks really nice. A child playing with it could think up a lot of stories with it.

I don’t like the color scheme of this Blockade Buster from 2017; the black details (on the light gray body) are too loud for a military vehicle.

This NASA S.E.V./Chariot is from 2018 and is the first release. I think it looks really funny because it looks like a truck with an upside-down cab.

This ’09 International eStar is also from 2018 and is also the first release. Although its Matchbox Cars Wiki entry says its color is white, it’s actually a very beautiful metallic white. I love the large Matchbox logo on its side. This would be a very worthy representative for Matchbox models.

    1. Yes. Another reason I like it is in newer mainline models, either the body is metal and the base is plastic, or the body is plastic and the base is metal. But for this ice-cream truck, the body is mostly metal and the base is at least half metal.
