MB1214 : 1956 Aston Martin DBR1
Another classic casting for the Blue Highways 5 Pack is this fantastic Aston Martin DBR1, this is definitely one for the adult collector. For me its a great inclusion but once more the kids wont see one or relate to it, of course those kids that have a keen interest in cars might but they seem to be getting less and less these days or maybe thats me getting older.
|Matchbox Catalog Entry:
Its a fairly simplistic outing in dark red with just some minimal tampo prints to highlight some aspects of the car, the disappointing thing is the lack of detail to things like the headlights. As was shown the other day on the MB671 : 2005 Ford GT Mattel / Matchbox can do so much better in this department that it does make you question as to why thye didnt do the same with this casting, is it just laziness? or is a plain grey headlight cheaper to print on the car than one with more detail?
