|Special Five Packs|
October 15, John Nijhuis
Before Mattel issued the special five packs in the Netherlands at a retail shop named Kruidvat, there was the most curious one I have ever seen bij another retail chain named Trekpleister during 2011.
Mattel put in this pack 2 Marvel models (mainly Spiderman), 2 left over Matchbox models of the Hitch and Haule series of a couple of years ago and one 1:50 scale Hotwheel!!!
The Matchbox models were mainly:
The 406 was a surprise. It looked like the model as issued before in the Hitch
and Haule series but after looking more carefully you could see that the
model is white in stead of pearly white, the base plate is from China
and not from Macau and the printing is missing two colors.
The packaging of the five pack was made especially to fit those models.

Mattel issued a number of special five packs in the Netherlands at a retail shop named Kruidvat.
Mattel took the 2014 Battle Mission Force Five Pack (BFM98), changed it a little and filled it with a range of models from the Battle King Series during 2006 and 2007. The 5 pack still caries the BFM98 item number on the back. Mattel filled the 5 pack with more or less the same models as the 2014 models. Seems that Mattel used the Netherlands again as a dumping site for redundant models in the past.
At the left you see the 2014 Five pack Battle Mission. Below the adapted version. Packaging is the same except it has the title Battle Mission at the bottom of the front. The back side of the packaging is completely different. Although bith have the BFM98 serial number. The 2016 new five packed has as patent date 2013 in stead of the reqiured 2015. I did find several combinations of Battle King Models.
For more information click here.
|Below you find a number of variations I did find so far.|
The most exiting car is the model #506 Police Hummer as I have never seen it
so far. Certainly npot in the Battle King Series. I could not find anything
on the Internet so far on this model.
Who can help us here!!!!
