Has Mattel run dry of ideas?
Has the design team at Matchbox run out of ideas? Its not a question I ask lightly because on the whole they do such a a great job, a lot of the time from what I can see under some very restrictive conditions which makes what they do even more impressive.
So why ask the question; well have you seen the MB789 : Skidster that is available in the Russia Collection? Now a lot of people might think they have not yet seen this model as the Russia Collection may not be available to them, well you could well be wrong in that assumption.
If you have collected for a few years, when you look at the pictures you might think it looks familiar. Well it should because this casting was first released in 2010 in the basic range and was seen again in the 2018 basic range as well as a 9 pack from 2018.
With the same design reappearing over and over again you need to ask, is this another cost cutting measure? If so I hope its a trend that does not continue.
