October 2002 Matchbox Releases

As usual here is a list and a small description (my own) of all the Matchbox models that are released so far in this month. Remember I update this list only when I get the model in my collection. This list will be updated as I get new models until then Happy Collecting. Continuing the tradition of last year I am starting to list the "MW-???" code that shows the number that the model is released under in the year 2002. The next code is the catalog listing. For the last two years I started linking some models with their pictures so feel free to click at the link and see the model. Please remember I cannot get pictures of every single model and post it on the web as I do have other things in life but I will try my best to post good pictures. I may be a little slow in linking pictures so do come back and visit previous months to view the models. Or you may bookmark my Picture Gallery and visit it often. Now Enjoy the new Matcbox.
