Matchbox Just (Unofficially) Released Chief Hopper’s Truck from “Stranger Things”!

There are already TONS of official “Stranger Things” collectibles out there, many of which have come courtesy of Funko and McFarlane Toys. If you haven’t yet checked your local Target, be sure to do so, as an entire section of “Stranger Things” toys and various other goodies can now be found in all Target stores.

Matchbox doesn’t officially have the license to “Stranger Things,” but that didn’t stop them from making a fun homage to the Netflix series in their new “Best of 2017” line.

Now available, the ’89 Chevy Blazer 4×4 is an exact replica of Hopper’s Hawkins Police Department truck, making it the perfect addition to your “Stranger Things” collection.

The only difference? The text “Hawkins Police Dept.” was replaced with “Matchbox Police Dept.” After all, fine details would turn this from homage to copyright infringement!

Thanks to Reddit for the heads up.

    Matchbox/Hot Wheels are pretty much the only thing I collect these days (because they’re cheap), but wouldn’t an 89 Blazer be five or so years after the time of the show?

    It is just a repaint. I used to have this vehicle, it was white and blue. Still is pretty cool of them to make this, though.
