2017 G Case is out

Postby Guran » Thu Apr 13, 2017 12:05 am

The G case for 2017 has now appeared on eBay and IG. Here is a list of what you can expect in the long card case:

10 new releases:
MB18 Garbage Gulper
MB44 Rain Maker
MB52 Tractor Plow (Plowverizer ... or MBX TKT+ in 2016)
MB60 2015 Subaru WRX STI (NEW model)
MB65 Xcanner
MB91 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 (NEW model)
MB95 Volkswagen Transporter Cab (with two cab variations)
MB98 Hydro Cruiser
MB106 Jungle Crawler
MB110 Sand Speeder (MBX Sand Racer ... originally called Dune Buggy)

7 carryovers from F case:
MB21 Dodge Challenger SRT8
MB48 Land Rover 90
MB55 Snow Thrasher
MB72 MBX Prospector (Road Tripper)
MB76 Quarry King
MB111 Roar-by-Four
MB115 Swamp Raider

For the second case in a row, Matchbox has unfortunately messed up the series allocation for one of the models. Rain Maker has been assigned an MB number that is in the range for Construction but it is identified as Heroic Rescue series (with appropriate Fire Rescue deco).

Two months on and still no sign of H case. I get the impression that there were two releases of G case as I've seen them with either K08 or K10 stamped on the long cards.

From what I understand, batch H should be out any day and Batch J may not be too far behind.
