Latest Superfast 50th anniversary releases

09e1c83f-c32e-49a8-b3a4-2b77b5a4bec4

Mattel has released the next two out of the 12 special models to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Matchbox Superfast, continuing in commemorative packaging.

We brought you the news of the first four in this section of the April issue and now the fifth and sixth releases have arrived. This completes the first wave of six with a further six due at the end of the summer.

The two latest releases are a 2016 BMW i8 and 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Due later this year are a 1976 Dodge Challenger, 1932 Ford Pick-Up, 2017 Chevy Camaro, 1966 VW Type 3, 1983 Porsche 911 Turbo and last, but definitely not least, and the biggest nod to the early releases is a new version of the original No 61 Blue Shark.

The bright and fun commemorative packaging is very evocative of those early boxes and these will make a nice set for Superfast collectors.

Unfortunately, these are only to be marketed and sold by Mattel in the US but there are already some sets finding their way to these shores thanks to speculative traders, so keep your eyes peeled!
