I'm liking it. When I saw Richard Hammond testing one on Top Gear, I instantly thought I would love to see a Matchbox version of it. So I am happy to see it making an appearance next year. I hope this will not be the only new Mercedes in the pipeline.

:) :D :P

Anyone seen the latest postings? Matchbox has just announced a new livery for the Dodge Monaco ... and it's licensed! It's the Illinois State Police livery from when they used Monacos. I for one am very excited to see Matchbox using a licensed state police livery that isn't the California Highway Patrol. It would be nicer if they used the original Monaco casting (with the separate lightbar), but it's great to see a licensed livery from a major police service. Hopefully we see more state police liveries in the future.

Mattel, please sell Matchbox to the Simba Dickie Group!

There is absolutely nothing good that can be said about this model. Despite what others may say this models proves beyond a doubt that

1) Mattel are NOT listening
2) Mattel have had plenty of time to change and have failed
3) I know it takes time for changes to flow through to stores but this is not indicative of change
4) The new team continue to fail the collectors of the world and the buying public as a whole

Such a shame that it has a plastic body as it looks ok otherwise.
