I am really loving this 2010 #textrontiger casting & am really hoping it is not just a #jurassicworld issue. Luckily we have 3 releases for the #jurassicworldfallenkingdom series, as there was 1 in both the first 2 batches & now the Battle Damage issue too. But I am hoping that #matchbox gets to use it again in other ranges too.

I don't know why, but there's just something I really like about dark green with yellow detailing. They just look so cool together. #matchbox has done a few models like this. 2 of them are the 2006 Superfast issue of the #fordgt & the 2014 basic range issue of the #caterham Superlight R500. I hope we continue to see this sort of colour scheme as it works on so many cars.

One final post on this new #matchbox #jurassicworld Battle Damage #mercedesgwagon in silver. Comparing it to the original release they are basically like before & after models (with the mud & the claw marks on the new one). However do you notice one tiny change? The 05 at the back end of the tampo on the blue line is now black, where it was originally white (you can see it better in the 2nd pic). I tell you, did you know dinosaurs carried around black marker pens to doodle with on the side. Why do you think the #merc got attacked? For telling off the poor Dino who wanted to colour in the number on the side. Top tip. You don't want to get on the wrong side of a dinosaur when he (or she) is colouring in. Let them finish & tell them nice job, & they will not rip your property to shreds. 😁

I leave the best (of) 'til last in my British #matchbox pics. It's a pun. I know, a terrible pun, but it made me smile. The usual saying is leave the best 'til last, but these are all from the "Best of..." Series. Ah forget it. In 2008 @matchboxworld created a special series of 12 models originally for the UK market using models that were mainly iconic British vehicles. I say mainly as there was an International Armored Car in there. It was called Best of British. They eventually were also distributed in USA hobby stores. A second set was made for 2009 too. Both sets featured a 1965 #austin #minivan in the series. 2008 was in a plain pea green design, 2009 was light blue with a butcher design on the side. The Best of British series was dropped after that. In 2016 a new Best of series was created, & although it wasn't specific to anywhere the #austinminivan was included again. This time in purple with a battenburg design (both pattern & name). 3 "Best of" models, this is one of the most regularly used in that series. That must make it a good model.

Anyone who was looking at my posts today would probably have seen this coming. Emergency theme for the day, with police & ambulance done, all that is left is fire. So I finish with another #matchbox original creation. The MB660 #fire #laddertruck which debuted in 2005. & What a debut it was too. Released as MB1 in the basic range in red, it then appeared in the Fire 5-pack later that year in white, & finally being added as an exclusive to the Fire Station playset too in yellow. What a start to this casting. 3 different issues in 3 different series in its first year. But sadly it barely saw any use after that. Dropped from the basic range for 2006, it only saw a seasonal issue for Christmas then returned to the basic range for 2 more red designs in 2007/2008 before going for good. That's it. These 3x 2005 design issues were literally half of its entire history. It's such a shame, as I always thought this was such a nice casting too.

#matchboxpreproduction sample of the MB509 '99 #fordmustang #policecar alongside the production issue. I picked up a FEP 2003 launcher set at Chelsea Piers in NYC back in 2003, as it was part of the auction at that year's #matchbox convention. It was my first trip to USA & the first time I got to meet the @matchboxworld team of the time. They were still based in Mt Laurel in NJ then, as it was 2004 when they were moved in house at El Segundo CA. I was told that there were a number of FEPs made & some may have been sent out to stores along with the first production run. As you can see the windows were red on the prepro before changing to clear, & the side tampo did not have any additional blue in the side design over the Mission H20 writing. So check carefully. There may be a few of the FEPs out there.

Yeah I've been having fun with trailer units today. I've always felt they were an important part in #matchbox history & it's nice seeing a few new ones appearing over the last couple of years. In the mid #2000s a group of trailer castings were created. One of them was this awesome MB682 #snowmobile trailer. It only ever had 2 outings. It first appeared in 2005 as part of a Snow Attack Hitch 'n Haul set. It came in orange & grey with a yellow & black removable snowmobile. In 2008 it turned white & blue with a green & black snowmobile in the Snow Track HnH set, lasting until 2013. Will we see this casting again? I hope so. I think it's a really cool set, plus has added play value with the little snowmobile coming off.

The #matchbox '70 #pontiacgtojudge had a decent run as it was first released in 1996 as MB70 in the US range or MB64 in the ROW range. It debuted in orange. We saw them revisit the orange look in 2007 as part of the Superfast America series, although this time it was metallic.

I finish off my little army themed day with a little fun. After all it's Friday evening here in the UK. Work is done for the week & I can enjoy the weekend. So for a laugh I present the MB523 #matchbox casting of a Radar Truck. It was launched in 2001 in the basic range & ran for 5 years. This army green version is the last issue (MB15 in 2005). It was a perennial peg warmer. I took a photo once in 2004 at the pegs of my local TRU store which had a number of the 2004s still on pegs, alongside 2003s & 2002s. Yes there were 3 years of this casting all sitting together just pleading for somebody to buy them. It just stunk up the place. It's a shame really, as I felt the concept itself was really cool. It was just unfortunate the look of the specific casting just did not gel.... with anyone. When it was announced a change of direction for 2005 collectors around the world cheered. Hero City had not worked & Ultra Heroes in particular were seen as the main villain. Yet they still managed to outsell this poor guy. So when another one appeared for 2005 as part of the move to more realism it proved to be quite a shock. But when this guy came home with me, he knew what to do. He became prepared for war. He hooked up a field gun to his rear to keep the haters at bay. Luckily, during the Lesney era (1970s) one had been created. Normally it came with a diorama, but in 1978 it was part of the TP-13 twin pack without one (a few did find their way into single blisters too). With this attached nobody dared to ignore him.

#matchbox 2000 MB51 US exclusive M4 #shermantank with logo. They only made 10,000 examples with the Matchbox 2000 logo on them & I have 2 of them because, as you may have noticed, the mud spray on the side varies from a rather fine mist to a more blotchy look. If I see a variation I get the variation. It's such a shame this #tank really didn't get much use.

I've been having a Japanese car manufacturer day today so let's finish off with a couple of yellow taxis. Because, why not. I have no logic. #matchbox has had a couple over the years. The #nissanprairie was part of the 1998 Around Town 5-pack, & the #toyotaprius was the 2017 MB15. They look really good together & their side designs are not vastly different with just black & white detailing.

I continue #eurotuesday with a short story. In 2006 when #matchbox were creating the 3rd year of the Superfast series & had decided to replace the number 37 slot in the range which for the first 2 years was occupied with a 1957 Chevy Bel Air. Initial plans were to bring back the #porsche959 casting which had not been used since 2001. The model was mocked up in dark red, was approved & packaging was designed & all was going well. It got to FEP stages when they discovered an issue with the mold. They would be unable to produce as was, so a decision was made to replace it. Luckily they had a good deal going with Jaguar on the new '06 XK that had just debuted in the basic range that year, & they managed to speed through to get a Superfast version created for the number 37 slot instead of the 959. It debuted as part of the final batch of the series. This #porsche is one of a handful of FEPs that were ready to go & originally came inside a blister. Of course I managed to get hold of it so the blister is now gone. I am not sure if I still have the box that was also included somewhere in my junk box. I have a lot of random Matchbox packaging thrown in there. One day I will sort it out & get rid of it.

I like green shades & I can not lie. @husmanturik requested a Ridge Raider from #matchbox & as I had one ready to go I thought why not. I have to admit to being a bit nuts when it comes to my shade variations. This green example was part of the 2009 Action 10-pack, so you know I picked up the whole pack more than once just to get a shade. I am that crazy about my Matchboxes.

@husmanturik here's a #matchbox Desert Thunder V16 variation for you. In 2012 a number of vehicles were sporting an orange hot foil covering to the wheels, but something happened & a batch was made with chrome hot foil instead. The Desert Thunder was one of those vehicles. It was MB46 in the range that year & the chrome wheel variation is much harder to find than the standard orange wheel.

I'm having a #pickuptruck day today due to a study announced yesterday that in the UK #pickuptrucks are actually proving to some of the most desirable on the second hand market. 4 out of the top 10 were that kind. For those interested 5 were SUVs & the Porsche 911 the only car (I swear that wasn't all down to me). The #mitsubishi LM200/Triton was one of the top 10. This model was made in miniature by #matchbox between 2009 & 2012. I am always a fan of the stock look, & this sported one on 3 occasions from different ranges. Black was its debut version in 2009 in the basic range, where it was sold as MB90 in the us range, MB45 in the LAAM range & MB50 in the ROW range. Burgundy was the 2009 1st Editions 10-pack release. The blue was from the 2011 Service Center 5-pack.

It's naked. Something just a little different to finish off #bluemondaymatchbox today. I am a bit of a completeist when it comes to #matchbox miniatures, and although I am a car person & they are easily my favourite parts of the collection, it still does give me a lot of joy finding unusual variations on any model. Take this #tractor that was part of the debut 2007 year as MB54 (it was version 2). I found one that they forgot to tampo print. I don't find an awful lot of errors, but I do enjoy spotting them.

I seem to have been having a "fast cars" day today with my #matchbox posts, so I will finish off with another classic. The #fordgt was recreated in miniature during the #mattel era after initially being a part of the Lesney series in the late 1960s & early 1970s. At first it was exclusive to the #superfast range & debuted in 2004 under the same MB41 number the original Lesney did. It even came in the same white with blue "6" stripe design of the original. But in addition, at the Hershey convention that year it was (along with 3 others) released in alternate colours as a 4-car dealer set. This one was silver instead of white. They made a good debut pair, although if they had thought more they should have done the alternate in bronze, evoking the second "original's" release in the early 1970s.

This is a story that began in 1972. #matchbox created a #ford #mustang casting & called it Boss Mustang. It was released as MB44 in the range & was yellow with a black opening bonnet/hood. Loosely based on a 1st generation '71 Boss 351 with flared nostrils, they also decided to expose the engine out of the top & add side exhausts. Remember in those days images were few & far between & they didn't have a lot to go on. But still, it proved popular staying unchanged until 1977. It re-appeared as a limited edition in USA in 1980 then popped up briefly in the basic range in 1982 in the US series. It also spawned a Rolamatics spin-off called Piston Popper. In late 1982, Lesney sadly went bust. Universal popped up buying up the company & continuing the series. Due to issues at the time, there was a shortage of new castings, so they created some additional castings simply by altering some they already had. One was the Mustang, which received added flares & skirts & turned into IMSA Mustang. It was released in 1983 as MB11 in the US range & MB67 in the ROW range. It only lasted 3 years in the ROW range but carried on until 1996 in the US range. Quite a journey over a quarter of a decade. Pictured is the 1993 issue in orange. Having no worldwide access as is common nowadays it took me a number of years to get my first version. It wasn't until one of my trips to USA that I found a great shade variation to add to my collection. I picked it up at a hobby shop I have been to a few times now called Kiddie Kar Collectibles based in Reading PA. It's always fun visiting the shop as it's like a little treasure trove of models. Each visit lasts for hours. Hopefully one day I will get back there again.
