they actually have a lot of potential. For one example,the corvette ZR1. I don`t even collect these cars in any brand however mb did such a great job with this car I actually have them in my collection.IMO,they did this casting better than anyoneWhat a waste. Just kill the brand and fold the rigs and planes in Hot Wheels already, you know you want to Mattel. The last MBX I picked up was the CTS wagon.
I feel the same way. Matchbox has gotten less than $10 from me this year, and won't be getting any more. In fact, these days I don't bother perusing the die-cast aisles at all.Mattel has literally killed the brand.
All I see at the matchbox pegs are generic trucks, generic off-roaders, generic emergencies with "creative" graphics but absolutely no cars...
I'm still on the look out for the blue mini cooper converitble which is nowhere to find.
Sorry about the rant.
