Awesome. Can't wait for Tesco to restock
Just in our local Tesco and they were just opening now boxes of Matchbox and Hotwheels. I got first look in as they were stocking the shelves but there was nothing i fancied. :(

And from new Hot Wheels to NOS Hot Wheels - picked up a few older releases via eBay along with another car from the same seller

Particularly pleased with this one as it's one of the ex-Corgi castings, and a damn sight heavier than the original partly thanks to having a metal, rather than plastic base. This came out in 2003, a full 30 years after Corgi started making them

I was in Smyths early Thursday morning and I think they'd just stocked up

I think the Cybertruck is a nasty looking thing but I still picked up the 1:64 version to see what the fuss is about

There is one that has been made since 2011 as a Ken Block tribute, but it's not been a mainline release since 2018 when it was part of the Checkmate (chess) series. It was also in a 2019 multipack (10 cars I think) and a 2021 5 pack (Speed Blur). Last release was as an ID car and they aren't so easy to find in the UK, sometimes TK Maxx have them. Best bet is probably eBay, or wait and see if they decide to release it again

I was having a look through the 10 packs in Smyths today, mainly as there's a new colour of the Lotus Esprit out that's been spotted in multi packs, my friend collects this casting so I'm on the lookout for it.
Instead I found this

That's a Flying Customs 55 Chevy, that has no place being in a 10 pack

Wasnt quite what i was after. Was thinking (well hoping) theyd do one with standard body, not arched.
If itll fit in your collection then thats fine. If you bought it with me in mind, ill take it.
Dont want you out of pocket on my behalf.

My mrs found a rather good online toy shop with reduced price premium Matchbox - they're also pretty good at dishing out discount codes too, usually 10% off your second order - or 12.5% if you use my code! Free delivery over £25 too


I ended up getting quite a few, I'll put the VW stuff in the other thread
