Matchbox Miniatures

Series

"Matchbox Miniatures" is the preferred name to be used for referring to all Matchbox small-scale diecast models made from 1953 to the present day. Since 1983 this name has been used officially by the companies successively manufacturing the models (Universal, Tyco and Mattel).

The following names have been used for the basic Matchbox Miniatures range prior to 1983:

  • Matchbox Series (1953 to 1959)
  • (Matchbox) 1-75 Series (1960 to 1974)
  • Matchbox 75 (Series) (1975 to 1982)

For models which were part of the basic range from 1983 onward the unofficial designation "Basic Miniatures" is used.

The following names have been used for various subsets within the basic Matchbox Miniatures range:

  • Auto-Steer (1968 to 1969)
  • Superfast (Lesney) (1969 to 1980)
  • Superfast (Tyco) (1994 to 1997)
  • Rola-matics (1973 to 1982)
  • Choppers (1973 to 1976)
  • Streakers (1975 to 1980)

Several other sub series names were used and printed on packaging of basic range Miniatures during the Mattel era, starting in 2005.

Many other names have been used for separate ranges outside the basic range for which Matchbox Miniatures castings were also used, either unchanged or in modified form - all of these are deemed "Series":
