MATCHBOX should take a leaf out of the book of MAJORETTE.

Excellent distribution, 100% licensed castings, modern vehicles, working suspension, opening parts, realistic colours and fine details… and Majorette still sell for £1 in Morrisons.

Matchbox, why aren’t you capable?

    1. Hi Jim… for me the opening parts are nice but I can take them or leave them. I think majorette have made them work well but on some models I think it can distract from the overall profile of the car (big gaps, doors not sitting flush, etc) so I think I can forgive mattel for sacrificing opening parts if they keep their models looking good.

      1. Hi Jasmine. I do like the odd Mattel model that has some extra function…like the door in Time Attaxi, the Rolamatic style shake of Crate Racer’ engine or the opening back hatch of the delivery van. It could be a nostalgia thing, although, I don’t play with the models now like I did when Ii was a kid.
