Matchbox is an interesting brand. Distribution is generally very poor and how they market the brand is brow raising at best. They do however produce some of the best licensed 1:64 for under a buck in my opinion. If you can find them.

The Jurassic Park series would be the last place to look for a good clean licensed product one would think. Hidden amongst all the camouflage is this hidden gem though. A Mercedes Unimog convoy truck.


It wasn’t until my daughter swiped it off my desk and popped the rear canvas off the back that I realized those sneaky Matchbox designers left an Easter egg, a detailed rear compartment! For the record, I bought a second as I think this will take to customizing quite well. I think it needs tracks. Snow convoy anyone?
