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? Advertisements Share this:TwitterFacebookGoogleLike this:Like Loading...

I miss the opening parts on Matchbox models…Mattel has never been really keen on models with opening parts (probably a cost thing). LikeLike Reply 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.

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. LikeLike Oh yes! I love the door on the Time Attaxi. I think quirky stuff like that fits the Hot Wheels brand very well. LikeLiked by 1 person Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
