Featured Car: Matchbox Smart ForTwo


This Smart ForTwo is one the most wanted model of the 7 Eleven treasure hunt list. Many of the collectors still kept it carded, but mine opened for a "special" reason.


Why so rare for this little car? Each Matchbox carton contained 1 unit of it, but every 7E outlets will not received more than 2 carton during this promotion period.

I scored nothing on second day search, but my friend managed to find 2 only after go through many outlets. None on the display, but he asked shopkeepers for the balance in the stock.


The 7E promotion suppose to run for 4 weeks, but the stocks consumption is going way too fast by looking at the current speed. All nice models have gone but leave all the common models behind.



Verdict: This is the smallest Matchbox I have to date.

I like:
- Small and cute.
- Topless.

I Dislike:
- Bad colours combination, Tomica did it better.
- Too plain for the back, should have some detailing for the back lights.
