Double decker Bus a.k.a. London bus! This is the first bus model in my vehicle collection.
I like this bus a lot as it is a twin layer bus. Its kinda hard to get this bus in Kuala Lumpur which I had search many times around most of the major toy stores and hypermarkets in order to hunt it down. However, i still failed to search it. Thanks to my online friend. I am able to get this baby and really appreaciate his effort to help me search for it outside KL. :) This bus was produced by matchbox in 2007 and has 2 types of colour i.e. blue and red. So far, red is the most common colour. In 2008, it was released in gold colour as anniversary edtion. I didn't realize that matchbox is also produce by mattel which is the same company as Hot wheels. Anyway, I still prefer red colour as it looks more "original/natural". The bus has black rims i.e. unpainted rims and body is fully made from metals except the windows, rims and base. It is the heaviest small die-cast vehicle in my collection! I have to keep this bus in the card as it is very hard find.
Let us have a closer and clearer looks at the tampo.
It has black plastic base and made in Thailand.
