Well, I don't know enough about Majo to know the difference, but since one of the following was shown on the pic of the 2017 offerings, and since the rest of what I am showing showed up locally at the one Marshall's in the region (don't think there are any other Marshall's in all of SW Idaho any more), I'm guessing they're all appropriate for this thread:

Here we go:
It was Majo March Madness at Marshall's in Meridian (ID)......and it was MMMMM good.....
I only bought one 5-pack and one of the 3-packs...there was another (different) 3-pack and another 5-pack (someone else showed it somewhere....maybe it was in that Majo catalog shown....?)

First, the contents of the 3-pack
Posted Image
Michael showed the Ford GT pretty good already, so I'll focus on the others

Posted Image
Jeep Wrangler, Ford GT, and Dodge Hellcat

Posted Image
Dodge Challenger SRT "Hellcat"

Posted Image
Somebody (above) showed the carded single issue of this, with additional tampo passes in black....the 3-pack issue is plain jane....

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
Both of the multipacks I bought had the Hellcat in them....but I wanted the wagons most out of the 5-pack, and the Jeep and Ford out of this one, so I HAD to buy a dupe of the Hellcat....sometime maybe I'll find the Matchbox Challenger (green) for comparison shots....(I have a recollection there was a green one by Mbx....but I could be wrong?)

Posted Image

The Jeep (probably been shown to death at some point in the past, but rather than look for other photos here, I'll take the liberty (kinda a play on words, jeep-wise):
Posted Image

Posted Image
I sorta tried to pop the top off to see what remains, but it wasn't coming easy (that's good), I left it on

Posted Image
Gotta love those 4-side tampo passes....wish another popular brand could/would do that....especially since that other brand is among the world's biggest toy manufacturers....

Posted Image

Posted Image

And just for completeness...
Posted Image
Ford GT (I was gonna compare it to the latest Matchbox GT, but it's a GT40 and doesn't look a bit like this one....)

Now, the 5-pack (my little portable photo studio isn't big enough to show all the models together, so suck it up, boys....)
Posted Image
Self-explanatory

Posted Image
Secret taillights....

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
Sure, I just flipped the previous photo over 180 to make it appear I took photos of each side......sure I did.....

I don't have many Opels, but I have one more now....
Posted Image

Posted Image
Opel Adam

Posted Image
Did they name it after some dude at Opel, or does "Adam" mean something else in the context of the car name?

Posted Image
No opening features (too tiny?), so not much else to show....

Then, the Range Rover Evoque
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
Is that a blemish, or is that an artifact? Who knows? The Shadow Knows.....

It's a reflection of my deep admiration of this model, that's all....
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Mercedes Benz GL
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
Ample space for luggage, groceries, or that Opel Adam....

Posted Image

Posted Image
Hmmmm, no photo on which to "base" my info on the Mercedes wagon? Oops.....oh well.

But, that's not all....
Posted Image

Okay, NOW that's all.....

All in all, the sets were a great deal at Marshall's.....considering Marshall's is kinda like a reseller/discounter/overstocker(?), the price per model breaks down (not counting our state 6% sales tax):
5-pack=$7.99=$1.60 apiece
3-pack=$5.99=$2.00 apiece
Challenger=average $1.80 apiece......hmmmm :?!?:

If you collect Matchbox too, maybe you had to think this was coming:

Majorette vs Matchbox (Range Rover Evoque edition):
Posted Image
Majo on left....the Matchbox version is from the Land Rover 6 model mini series....(not included in that series' 5-pack) (The one in the mainline was orange....and I wanted to compare the "copper" paint jobs....

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image
I'm a bit surprised that Matchbox, on a slightly smaller scale, put the Land Rover badge on the front grille while Majo omitted it...

Posted Image

Well, there you have it. I hope you enjoyed!

(These models make me want a 1:1.....anybody got $40+ thousand lying around you'd like to give me?)

Yes. The "dude" was Adam Opel himself, the company's founder: Posted Image

yes, but looks like a more pale blue, not that dark blue of the Gendarmerie ...so might come as a civilian version!

Looks a little bit like this one..

The Lamborghini giftpack looks fantastic - especially the Polizia Gallardo. But something about the Aventador SV Roadster doesn't look right to me - perhaps the wheels are a tad too large?

I think it's just because the wheels on that particular one have shifted well outside the fenders on the one side and probably just need to be pushed back in. I think that gives the appearance of the wheels being much bigger than they really are. At least I'm hoping that's the case, as that's the one I'm looking forward to the most.
