Apart from a lack of tampo detail on the front and rear this one looks quite nice

Nice but looks a lot like a 5 pack release from a year or 2 ago.

Definitely not the best A-100 color combination MB has done, although the tamps are nice.

If nobody likes it, it may just be the first one I find! I hope It's released as a single, in peg-warming quantities. Custom Fodder!

Besides, I need it to tend this...

I see the clowns at Matchbox design centre are stepping on Hot Wheels domain here,Nissan,s are most certainly HW territory with many different types very much loved by collectors.

Maybe tit for tat as HW are now making a range of the old style mini car and van

I have to say that Skyline is looking good. For once a casting that I would actually buy. However my chances of finding one here in the UK is one big fat ZERO. If it were a Hot Wheels I'd have no problem obtaining one 'cause those crap holes are in every nook and cranny.

Matchbox is so far out of reach there may as well be a Matchbox warehouse with a shop on the moon. More chance of getting one then.

I personally can't wait to find the Skyline. Fingers crossed it doesn't prove too elusive to find.

Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere (and for the ridiculous size) but I couldn't see it so thought I'd pop it on this thread. Due next year apparently. Looks promising!

It'll be interesting to see if the 3rd set of wheels mean costs will be cut elsewhere. Looks good though. :)
