Mr. Lugo’s Serves Great Food
If you haven’t seen Jon Favreau’s indie film that he wrote and starred in the Chef then you should to give you an idea what’s life of a Food Truck owner feels like. But unrelated to the Matchbox’s Food Truck it gives you a little relevance why its one of the interesting vehicles that was released in 2012.
Mr. Lugo’s may not be as popular as the Food Truck in Chef, but its sure captures the elements what you see in a pop-up restaurant serving some mean Hot Dog Sandwiches. The body is entirely made of plastic with translucent green windows and sun roof where you can see the details of what is inside a regular Food Truck, which is more spacious than the actual truck itself.
Fictional in Look But Realistically Detail
The 2012 Food Truck was released in two color variants which are purple and white. Regular release that you’ll often see is the white casting with orange diecast chassis, while the purple version have clear translucent window and grey diecast chassis.
This is not the first time Matchbox has produced a Food Truck it had previous models, but this one captures the modern version that you see in the street. The 2013 version was not as detailed as this model as you can see the opening side of the 2012 comes with grey plastic while the recent one was molded to the body of the trick.
Overall the “Food Truck” released in 2012 has far better details than the 2013, where Matchbox has cut cost in the product value. If you can still find the first release of this Food Truck it’s definitely worth it.
