Still convinced Matchbox is going in the right direction?? 

On a recent visit to Zürich, the new Franz Carr Webber shop had opened and I wanted to see what they offered in terms of diecast and LEGO. TBH, it was standard, with the usual silly Swiss prices – CHF119 for an Ebbro 1/43?! Jog on son…..

But what really caught my eye was the massive display below

Apologies about the bad pictures.

So, what does this say then?  Well, I think it is obvious.

And to add, there was not a single Matchbox car available within the store. In contrast, plenty of Siku and a smattering of HW.

For those who keep citing that Matchbox is going in the right direction, I beg to differ. Mr Horowitz seems to have secured the budget for this year again whilst Matchbox churn out irrelevant red estate cars with blacked out windows.
