Anyone some information on this??? If so please mail me at info@jnijhuis.com

Interesting to notice that, although may countries are boycotting the sale of military goods to the Middle East, Mattel keeps on selling their planes to the Middle East.
Just wondering?

  • John Nijhuis, 24 Juli 2017
    The Good New is that I found in Germany 4 new Planes (REWE).

    You had to look for it as they are hanging out throughout the shop (not in the Toy Section?) together with wave E/F of the MB75.
    They have the 4 different planes DVR16, DVR 22, DVR23 and DVR 24.
    So far I have not seen DVR21 in Europe.

    The Bad news is that, Like in the MB75 range, Matchbox is issuing old planes in the 2017 blister with the 2017 DVR number.
    So far I did find the following older planes in new packaging:

    DVR 26 Freeway Flyer (2013) DVR 27 Strato Stormer (2014) DVR 28 Sky Sentry (2014)
    SB 106/DKH00 Turbo Tornado DKH01 A-10A Thunderbolt
    SB124/DKH02 Roto Warrior SB075/DKH03 Cesna Citation
       
    DVR21 Skyclone (Missing ROW) DVR22 Boeing F15 Eagle
       
    DVR23 Blade Force DVR24 Sky Shredder
       
    SB 136/DVR16 Hybrid Chopper
