October 1998 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. Also, please remember, Mattel has changed the numbering system. I will Still be using the same old numbers from TYCO because that is how I am maintaining my database. You can choose to follow whichever system suites you the best.
