Unfortunately I don't think there executives have ever been to a Fle Market or small local toy shows to get an appreciation for the collectors market. Oh well there lost $$$. Because I don't think I bought more than 10 of there mainlines this year .
the THs change is because mattel wanted to make it look like they were trying to help us out.trust me they do not care ,they do love to help out the seconday market by stirring the pot on their site.as far as MBs they are selling well in my area and i like them but that's me.
Besides, it's not all doom and gloom-some of the current matchbox still have excellent detailing, even though most of the line is now kiddy stuff.While a few of the matchbox cars have been bad this year, I understand that they are kids toys. I will always prefer a MB over a HW anyday.
All the complaining about colored wheels, do people not realize that there are ALOT more HW's that have blue or brown or other color wheels?
