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 .

A prime example of what the collector does for them is Zellers. They raised the price to $1.99 and Walmart is at $ 1.33. Zellers was a great spot at $1.49. Collectors bought 20 at a time when new cases came in. At $1.99, they haven't received a case in over a month. WE are the old guys WITH THE MONEY!!. We will buy what we like and if we don't like it, we won't but it. LET THEM KNOW!!
I don't really think they are smart enough to figure it out themselves.

I rarely buy MBX. Very few American muscle made.
+1 I rarely buy them too...not just because of no Camaros or anything like that :p It would be nice if they finally did a 5th gen.

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?

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.
