wait...these figures were

wait...these figures were made in Japan? I never ever knew that. I assumed they were from Taiwan or China. Interesting. I feel like digging around for mine. I have Dana Sterling and a bunch of other figures..oh and a battle pod which is AWESOME somewheres. I dig your reviews on these. Although these figures look weird to me even as a kid, I still would ask my mom to get them for me, they never broke on me and I still have em to this day, I just have to find em.

Made In Japan

Yes, although I really don't see the craftsmanship, the first release of these figures were made in Japan.I would like to know which company produced these in Japan (perhaps Bandai?) as Matchbox wasn't known to have manufacturing facilities in Japan so they must have used an already established manufactures facilities to produce their product. Just what we need more mystery with these toys! they later were made in Hong Kong and China.

These figures are funky, with 1/3 of the figures very well done, another 1/3 questionable and the last 1/3 the worst toys ever injected into plastic. In the gallery you can check out all my Matchbox Robotech toys and if you have something you don't see in there by all means review it! It would be great if we could review all these Matchbox Robotech toys.
