    Matchbox Thai Taxis

    ..although not Matchbox 'cos isn't that a brand? anyway, whatever...

    I stumbled across these the other day and have since been obsessed with getting the whole set of 6. Not sure why, but my daughter likes playing with them so whatever.

    Apparently exclusive to 7/11 and made by Majorette (apparently a well known brand?)

    I went to every 7/11 on Sukhumvit 105 and 107 (apart from the one right next to the bts cos there was no where to park) and managed to get all but the red one. fyi there's 14 7/11s in all...






    Lazada have the full set listed but is 'Coming Soon'











    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    just the red one. i'm not that bothered though as i open the packets and they live in my kids toybox.

    a bit of googling does seem like there is money to be made on ebay etc though

    Don't forget the smaller wheels to make the meter go faster.

    Once got into a cab on suriwong that had a roof about four feet off the ground.

    Got out and looked at the wheels and I think he might have bought them at 7/11 too.

    ^ Arsehole. Now, since this thread started, I have to stop and look in every 7-11

    Need a red one and a blue/red one.

    In real life I've also seen a white with a red stripe.

    Some 'cluedo' weaponry under the driver's seat would also aid authenticity. Dagger, Revolver, Lead piping etc.
