Stars of Italy / Italia or Best of Italy

Hi All,

Another quick update - I've created an entry ( Stars of Italy (2021) ) as I've noticed a new series appear that's available ( only via a select few seller's on an auction site ).

I've uploaded what screenshots I can of the vehicles in their respective cases but had had a few issues with layout so would appreciate if anyone can tidy up.

I can't find much information about this series apart from this;

so happy to be advised further if anyone can.

A few uploads

Hi there,

As previously mentioned, trying to help out where I can, I've uploaded a few photos for the Matchbox Convoy CarryCase as I found my mine. The existing entry doesn't appear to be the same as mine so I've taken a photo of the inside trays to verify that there are differences.

I've also created a Title entry for Matchbox Car-Ferry. There didn't seem to be any subject titles for Gift-Sets so I've created a new entry, Admins, please feel free to edit accordingly if the information I've provided needs to be elsewhere.

I've found very little information as to when the Car-Ferry was produced from and to. Looking back at my catalogues, it appears in the 1972 catalogue as G-7 however, my set has 1971 printed on the box.

The last catalogue that…

Helping out where I can

Hi All,

I first found this Wiki about 10 months ago and it's been my 'Go To' site for model details however I've noticed that there are still some gaps in some of the information available so I'll help out as and where I can.

It's abundantly clear that Matchbox models are very hard to source in the UK ( I only know of 1 stockist - Tesco ) so with the help of a certain auction site and some very friendly and helpful people from across the Atlantic, I've been sourcing some items and will try and update info as and where I can.

So far, my updates have just been for 2 models in the 2021 list - models #4 & #47 and I must thank 2 sellers for my photo uploads;

rabbitcollection2 & wheelcollectors

Please be patient with my sometimes crude edits/uploads …

On the older Matchbox cars, such as 1972 and back, why is there no sort of scale for rarity? I'm just curious, and there's none to barely any mention of rarity on any websites, and I feel like knowing the rarity of your Matchbox car could very well be useful. I have a set of Matchbox cars going from 1-75 in complete form, and don't have any idea of any of them are actually rare or not. Is there a good way to determine rarity without any sort of scale?

The scale could go as such:

Very Common


-(nothing here)


Hard To Find

Very Hard to Find


Very Rare

Extremely Rare

Prototype only

Does it exist?

Thanks if anyone answers!

We need an Admin

Hello all,

I believe that currently we do not have an active user with admin rights, that is someone who can take care of some basic housekeeping functions on this Wiki.

I would be happy to take on this role.

I have been an active user here since 2015 and have made over 23,000 edits.

Your comments, either in support or otherwise, would be welcome.

Where To Buy Matchbox

I got into Matchbox collecting last year and have tried pretty hard to continue adding to my collection this year. The problem is that here in Las Vegas it's hard to find places who sell Matchbox. And if they do, their selection is pretty dismal. Can the community help by creating a list of stores, preferably national stores that can be found throughout the U.S.. I'll start the list here with what I've been able to find and the kind of selection they have in the stores here in Las Vegas.

Store Name Selection

Smith's Grocery (AKA Kroger) Dismal mostly Power Grabs but does carry some carded

Target Poor, usually just a handful of products and seldom anything new. …

The Nissan Figaro would make a great Matchbox

I first saw this car on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and I thought it was so unique and would be a great Matchbox model. And since Matchbox already has the rights to produce Nissans, it could happen. I tweeted it to Mattel, but I thought I should post it here too so that the idea is at least out there and might be seen by someone.

Matchbox Cyclone 5000 Track

I have a (nearly) complete Cyclone 5000 track including the original box and owner's manual. I would like to document it here as there is very little information on the internet regarding this track. I have never authored a wiki article and thought I should ask for some guidance before diving in. Thanks!

VW T3 Pickups

I finally got a hold of the metal version of the VW T3 Crewcab Transporter Pickup from the 1-125 MBX Explorers 1-125 MBX Explorers Series. They both came with Ringed Disk wheels. This vehicle first appeared in 2016 in light blue enamel with tampo. I'll be looking for that one too. Notice that the Color Changer vehicle  (MB1070) has a plastic body and the bed is empty, while the 1-125 vehicle has a detailed bed with quite a lot of gear. It is also nicely detailed in the front with painted grille and headlights and with minimal tampo.

What I've done so far today.

Well, I've edited the Utility Truck (1989) page, I've also added it to the List of 1989 Matchbox. Boy is there nothing in the 1989 page! I'm currently working on making the Matchbox Across America page. I'll later take everything relating to the 50th anniversary off the List of 2002 Matchbox page. In the mean time, You might not hear from me much.
