Based on Terry Ozima's report courtesy of David Tilley,
which of the following vehicles are you most looking forward to?​
MB75 Basic Range

This is what Terry Ozima wrote in his last Ambassador's report:
Licenses
• Honda Insight
• Holden SSV Ute
• Fisker Karma
• Caterham 7 R500
• Volvo P1800
• Porsche 914
• Rolls Royce Phantom
• '57 GMC Pick Up
• 1940s Willys Jeep (open top)
• 2010 Ford F150 Raptor
• 1980s Toyota 4Runner
• Pierce Impel Aerial Ladder Truck
• Ford Transit Connect
• Yamaha Rhino
Generics
• Road Roller
• Skid Steer vehicle
• Desert style trophy truck
• Small Truggy vehicle (like a mini MBX 4x4)
• Delivery Van (like the UPS/Fed Ex vehicles)
The 20 new MB75 castings are on their way and really look world class!

I'm looking forward to the 1980's Toyota 4 Runner. Matchbox is coming out with some nice casting that most diecast manufacturers would not introduce.

Can anyone confirm if the Rolls Royce Phantom was dropped from the line??
Yup, it was replaced by the new Caddy CTS wagon after apparently a license deal fell through with Rolls Royce.

In response to the poll set up here, I'm looking forward to the Holden Ute, Fisker, F150 Raptor, and the Volvo P1800 the most.

That bit of news has ruined my day. I hadn't looked forward to a matchbox release this much since... well... ever.

Fingers crossed that maybe Minichamps releases a Phantom variant in their next wave for 1/64 scale cars then.

edit: ANY chance that deal gets redone? Cuz come to think of it, they would have had to have put in a fair bit of money into a new mold for the car? All that money goes down the drain?

SIGH.
