MB666 : Hummer H3
Arriving on the Matchbox scene in 2005 was this fantastic rendition of the Hummer H3, its debut outing was in all black and almost immediately came with a slight variation as production switched from the original China location to the new facility in Thailand. As well as the change in manufacturing location the casting was immediately used in the premium Superfast lineup in addition to the basic range.
|Matchbox Catalog Entry:
Along with outings in the basic range and premium ranges the casting also saw some outings in multi packs, but the biggest surprise for me is that after an absence of nearly 10 years, its return in this years MBX Rally II 5 pack is nothing more than a direct copy of the initial outing from some 16 years ago. I would include a lot of images of the new variation but just dont see the point as it is such a direct copy that it even has the original Sawblade wheels from wayback when, a wheel design that most people thought were long gone until now.
