Matchbox 2008 Series Check List

last updated 03 September 2009

toynutz home

Mattel has once again increased the Matchbox series from 75 to 100 models for 2008.  The List below has been adapted from www.mbxforum.com/11-Catalogs/02-MB75/cf08All.doc and is listed in order of U. S. model number.  New models are highlighted in bold green.  "ROW" is the model number as marketed to the rest of the world. The manufacturer number (mfr#) is imprinted on the base of each model. In addition, this list provides the on-package serial number, multiples of which would mean that more than one variation has been issued.  It is uncertain what "LAAM#" means, but collector Alex Lanford suggests that it stands for Latin American releases.  For more information on the Matchbox Forum, visit www.mbxforum.com/.
