     Fun: Matchbox Superfast 2008 new models available!
    Matchbox Die Cast Cars
    A new line of Matchbox Superfast branded models is appearing in Wal Mart stores for the summer of 2008. These models consist of the car outside the box in a rectangular clear cellophane box. There are 10 of these boxes loaded into a flat cardboard display box.

    The first wave of these models are packed in a cardboard box labeled Super Fast 2008 MIX-A M2635-9993.

    Instead of a somewhat random mixture, this time the models are released in numerical order. The first 10 models in this wave are:

    #01 - Bentley Continental GT (Forest green)
    #02 - Porsche 911 GT3 (blue)
    #03 - Hiway Hauler (Tow truck flat bed yellow cab)
    #04 - 72 Ford Bronco 4x4 (purple)
    #05 - Volvo C30 (steel blue)
    #06 - 97 Land Rover Defender 110 (pale green)
    #07 - Desert Thunder V16 (white Dakar rally racing truck with orange design)
    #08 - 65 Austin Mini Van (purple with UK flag on the roof and classic 5 spoke wheels)
    #09 - 63 Cadillac Hearse (gray body with whitewall tires)
    #10 - Audi RS6 Avant (black Audi wagon)

    After the 2006 wave came out, the releases seemed to be very disorganized, and I never was able to locate complete sets or fill out the collections. So I only have about 20. The same thing occurred with the 2007 sets. I suspect the same thing will happen with the 2008 sets.

    Matchbox Superfast 2006 Waves of Die Cast Toys Appearing

    Update December 2008!

    The second wave appeeared. These are going to be very difficult to collect. I had to purchase the hearse from wave A at an auction after looking in vain for months. Wave B is JUST starting to make its way into Wal Mart. I found a complete set.

    #10 - Audi RS6 Avant - black Audi wagon
    #11 - Lexus GS430 - Black 
    #12 - Jaguar XK 120 - Baby Blue
    #13 - Audi R8 - Silver
    #14 - Mecredes Unimog U300 - Forest Green
    #15 - Lotus Exige - Yellow with black wheels
    #16 - Honda Ridgeline - Purple
    #17 - Ford Transit van - Blue - Plumbing and electrical
    #18 - 1965 Guilia Sprint GTA - Hubcap wheels - red
    #19 - 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop - coral with white top
    #20 - Baja Bandit - metallic orange

    I especially like the hubcap style wheels on the Guilia Sprint GTA. I have not seen anything like them before.
