The Entertainer in Kingston-Upon-Thames was normally a respected outlet to obtain 1-75.
A short sojourn there today provided me with some old skool Pixar Cars set – the Octain Gain pit crew (blog to follow), but more suprisingly, not a single 1-75. In fact the entire diecast on sale was replaced with Dickies 1/64(ish) and Maisto’s Fresh Metal.
Absolutely gutted. This is a fairly big store for toys and now it seems Mattel cannot even be bothered enticing the pegs to be stocked here!
Upon asking the Sales Chap about Matchbox, you could tell that the shop had not seen any for quite some time as he suggested ModelZone might be a better bet for 1-75……….ah, yesssssssssssss………….
Well done Mattel – yet again you can’t even get the basics right. Just do us all a favour – kill off the Matchbox brand or sort out the distribution. Your attitude to this brand is simply rubbish.
