MB1176 : MBX Backhoe
|Matchbox Catalog Entry:
Another Matchbox Original that for me is a great example of a generic vehicle. This one has it all, its realistic which is goes a long way, kids can see this in their town working away, its a very recognisable machine. The next big tick this casting gets is its playability, the moving buckets would surely be a biog hit with kids as well.
As for the collector this should please those that like construction equipment and vehicles as well, sure its not branded but in this case I dont think that really matters. This is one that will definately make its way into my collection.
