You asked, we listened

As always when I get ideas and requests from fellow collectors I always listen, mainly because I think we all have so much to learn from each other.  One of the things I enjoy doing when I get time is cataloguing various Matchbox throughout the years, I think of that as just another part of the hobby I enjoy so much.  So recently I asked on the Matchbox Collectors Forum just what everyone thought of the catalogue so far and the responses were great.  If you want to check it out, please do so at http://cobratoys.com.au/mbcat/ and let me know what you think as well.

Anyway, from the feedback I have decided to reinvent the catalogue and make it bigger and better than it has been in the past and so that’s what I am now working on, I think you are going to love it, it will include more models, more information, downloads, each list or information page is printable or can be emailed direct from the page, there really is so much more functionality to it and I cant wait to show you all.  Until then though here is just a sneak look at what you can expect from the new look catalogue.

So what do you think, am I on the right track ?
