I’m not sure how sturdy the Matchbox toys were, because I never had any, but they sure do look good. The Robotech action figures are nice, too—fully articulated, like G.I. Joe. The line was not marketed or stocked well, and simply couldn’t compete with the Transformers.

For those who missed it, be sure to check out Matchbox’s hilarious women of Robotech commercials.

    I haven’t played with it much, but my Excaliber is unbroken still after years being shipped around in boxes loose 🙂
