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’ve seen two versions of the book, both from 1985. I just got the one above. I’ll scan in the rest of the pages if there’s enough interest. What’s with the “humid climate offensive squad” on page 10?

The version below is on eBay. At least some of the content is different based on the sample pages on display.
