These are edited photos I created long ago using an original photo I took of a stock Aqua King, which I'm sure I've shown these shots before, but since photobucket ruined all my old posts I thought I'd present them again.....just in time for Christmas. :D

We could also share here other Holiday looking Matchbox, even if just models or groups in traditional Holiday colors, like red, green, silver, gold.....you get the idea.

I remember seeing these years ago....was it as far back as MCCH or here?

Fred Meyer stores here have a "Stuff the Bus" Christmas toy/gift program where, instead of the Toys for Tots white boxes at Walmart and other chains, you buy a toy/gift for, usually, a child, and then outside there's an actual full-size city bus parked that sits there until it is loaded with those donations of NEW toys/gifts. Can't remember which charities are supported/sponsors...but your creations remind me of the campaign in general.

Thanks Guys!

Yeah Blair and John it was back on MCCH when I created these, if you look on the doors of the Christmas versions, you can kind of see where I paint shopped over MCCH just under the word Christmas. Back in those days photobucket had a pretty good editor for photos, which allowed me to do all the changes.

Here is another I did back then of a mobile aquarium, not Christmas related but I liked it, and following is the original photo of the basic issue Matchbox design.
