MB1241 : 1953 Buick Skylark
Another new release for 2021 and its a real cracker! I have always loved the classic cars like this and something that I have never seen in the flesh is a welcome addition to the collection. The fact that these classic cars are in the range is surely a good sign that Mattel want to look after the collecting community as the kids for the most part will not recognise a car from the 1950s
For me its a bit of a bitter sweet moment when I find one of the classic casting because I like to add them to the collection but would far prefer if they were done in a larger scale like the ‘Models of Yesteryear‘ series, they just suit that range so much better and doing so would allow for even more detail.
|Matchbox Catalog Entry:
As it stands, the classic car lover has to be content with the smaller scale but you will not be disappointed at all. The Matchbox designers have manged to capture quite a lot of detail in such a small scale and this really is a sight to behold. The lines along the sides have been expertly picked out with the tampo print but sadly that means no detail printed on the front or rear.
A definite must have for the collection and as soon as you see it I am sure you too will want one.
