I agree.I would also welcome it but no point in dreaming it will never happen.Mattel seem to be putting all the cash into the Hot Wheels brand as is evident with no up to date web site and poor communication to there adult customers.
That's pretty much the case here as well. Wally's has an overload of MBs on pegs that match your description and they haven't thinned out yet and Target had their stock of MBs spread out over a bunch of pegs but I noticed today they had consolidated what they had on half of the pegs and just pulled the empty pegs above them and left the wallboard exposed - didn't even try to fill them with anything else, MB or otherwise. Don't know how they could anyway, their HW pegs are down to about 1 maybe 2 on average cards per peg. Couldn't make them much thinner if you took a match to what's left.I agree.
It's almost as if they are trying on purpose to tank the matchbox brand name.
The pegs around here are clogged with over tampoed matchboxes with wacky colored wheels.
I don't know about in other areas,but around here matchbox had a good run,and new stuff came and went pretty quick.
Not any more.
