It’s December 24th, Christmas Eve, the night before Christmas, whatever you want to call it. When’s a better time to show off what I recieved in LaLD’s official Christmas celebration? My Secret Super was shop teacher, so a big thank you to him for going above and beyond on this! This actually arrived a couple weeks ago, but I was waiting until Christmas Eve to show it.

Here’s the full extent of what I got. Nine cars! Three of these were on the card, but were promptly DLM’d after I opened the box.

These were the two premium cars in the box, a M2 ‘54 Ford and a Jada GTX.

Both had opening hoods and engine detail. The M2 stuck to stock, while Jada went for the modified look.

Ermahgerd! Ferds!!! The Redlines F1 has tons of detail, and, unlike my other redlines, had no flaws in the paint. The red Transit ambulance is made by a generic brand, but actually has a fair amount of detail. I’m thinking it was a cast off from Zlymex or a similar brand.

It even has a opening back door! This adds to my growing Transit collection; if anyone has the Matchbox Supervan 2, let me know.

One of the main things I was looking for was “golden age” Matchbox stuff, and shop teacher certainly came through on that front!

The new Cayman, a Superfast era speedboat, and a Jeep YJ Wrangler! The Jeep even has a sproingy suspension!

This Majorette Countach is AWESOME! A ridiculously cool casting.

Detail wise, it isn’t amazing, but this thing perfectly replicates the overall absurdness of the Countach perfectly, especially with the rear wing.

There was also the MBX Rambo Lambo. These two go together perfectly.

Thanks for all the great cars, shop! I hope everyone has a great Christmas and enjoys their Secret Super packages! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
