Later this month, Matchbox fans have a chance to experience a convention of their own with the upcoming Matchbox Collectors Gathering of Friends on July 17-19 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Unfortunately no one here at TWDR will be able to attend. But for those interested, you can find all of the info at the following links:
Mattel representatives will be in attendance, but perhaps the most exciting opportunity of the weekend is the chance to get your hands on some one-of-a-kind Matchbox pre-production models that will be auctioned off. What a great opportunity to get a once-in-a-lifetime piece and support a great cause!
In honor of the upcoming event, here is one of our favorite Matchbox models, the Seagrave Fire Engine, in full detail!
