2017 Best of Matchbox Series 2 - Volkswagen T2 Bus (MB734)

Here is another example from Matchbox's Best of the World Series 2 - the Volkswagen T2 Bus in Volkswagen Service livery. The tampos on these models is great - well done and realistic. As a premium model, this has tampos on 3 sides. Hopefully this will be a success for Mattel, as I really look forward to a 2018 series.

Hot Wheels UNSC Scorpion (DWJ82) - 2017 Retro Entertainment Line

Here is another offering from the 5 model set Hot Wheels just put out for the upcoming release of a new HALO video game. Here is the UNSC Scorpion. The scale of these models is not standard - the Gungoose seems to be the largest scale, followed by the Warthog, and then the Scorpion. Not really surprised, and I don't know if having them be in scale to each other would make me like them any more. Given the price, it would be neat if Mattel threw in some figures.

Hot Wheels 2017 Retro Entertainment - HALO UNSC Warthog (DWJ86)

Hot Wheels recently released a 5-car series commemorating HALO Wars 2. Here is the UNSC Warthog (DWJ86) from that series. This model has more metal than the Mainline release, and the detailing and tampos look good. Card art is well done, too. The figure is from McFarlane Toys Falcon-1.
