September 1999 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. This month we saw the first ever Mide West Matchbox convention and toy show hosted by Tom Sarlitto of MDM. The models you see here are taken from his web site. 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 that Mattel may change the numbering again this year but I would still go by the old numbers from Lesney to Matchbox International to TYCO because that is how I am maintaining my database. You can choose to follow whichever system suites you the best. Oh! one more thing. Starting this year I would be linking some models with their pictures so feel free to click at the link and see the model. Please remember I cannot take 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 taking pictures so do come back and visit previous months to view the models. Or you may bookmark my Picture Gallery and visit it often. Just one last thing, I did go to the Hershey Toy Show at the end of June but did not spend enough time to do a review so sorry.....Now Enjoy the new Matcbox.
