Here are recently provided pictures from Mattel exclusively for the collectors. I appreciate Mattel/Matchbox cooperation.
Some housekeeping reminders:
- Feel free to share these with fellow collectors, club members, post them on bulletin boards etc.
- These pictures are provided by Mattel so all credit should go to them when distributing/sharing these pictures.
- By all means raise your concerns but please behave and avoid any bashing. These are only toys.
- These are pre-production models and by the time the production model comes, there might or might not be any changes so please keep that in mind when comparing these pictures with the actual production models.
Now to the pictures:
First, here is the first look at the Seagrave Fire Truck. An absolute beauty. I bet the emergency collectors will have a blast. This may be a tough one to stay on the shevles long.
Second, A new Police motorcycle. We have not seen a motorcycle in the line in a long time. Definitely a cool looking model. It is BMW R1200 RT-P. I do not see any stand but the wheels are thick enough that the motorcycle stands on its own.
Third, This is the new 4x4 Scrambulance formerly known as the 4x4 Ambulance. While it has wildlife graphics it is meant for both animal or human transport. Graphics are still being adjusted. The blue ink used on the gorilla will be darker on the production model.
Fourth, This new item is the Tracked Missile Launcher for Real Working Rigs. It has working treads, a rotating turret and missiles are removable. It is awesome. An excellent model for the military collectors.
Next are some new 2012 segment deco’s. Reminder again: pre-production pictures - actual production models could be different.
