Siren call from Matchbox – more 2013 previews

Matchbox come forth and release three more models from the miniature range.
Pictures are from John Lambert’s blog – my brief thoughts are below:
Lamborghini Gallardo Police (60th Anniversary Edition): Lovely casting here and for once Mattel have got this right with the Italian Police livery. It is well tampo’d and has a lot of credibility as a real working car in today’s world. Well done.
Lamborghini Gallardo Police (2013 basic): Hmmm……I like the casting, but not that fussed about the colour scheme. Doesn’t look to me like a police car. What I would like to have seen is the lightbar as an addition rather than as part of the mould for the vehicle. That would mean there is scope to just have the basic road car. But don’t get me wrong, I like the model.
Scooby Impreza WRX: Love the casting, not the livery. Again, how difficult to rid the lightbar and turn it into a road going car? With a Mica Blue paint job, this would be a casting that would fly off the pegs.
BMW Motorcycle: I like that a motorcycle is included as part of the line up – I am not that fussed about the colour scheme.
Not a bad bunch really. But does go against the tag line of “Unstoppable” for the Matchbox brand……..
