MatchBox, 15mm Sci-Fi

15mm Matchbox Vehicles

Matchbox has some pretty excellent vehicles that are perfect for 15mm Sci-Fi games.  Plan on spending about $1-$2 per vehicle.  An excellent value all around.  If you do a Google search for "Matchbox Armored Response Vehicle" or "Matchbox Armored Police Vehicle" you should be able to find lots of them.  You may even be able to find them at a local toy store that sells Matchbox cars.  The rear top of the vehicle slides backwards to reveal seats and a console. 

Another great vehicle is the "Matchbox Swat Truck".  It looks like a Turkish Kirpi MRAP.

Check out 15mm World for some cool pictures of the Swat Truck.


  1. Matchbox also make a Stryker 1128 MGS as a part of their "Real Working Rigs" range.

    I'm not sure if this will work, but I've made a quick comparison shot of one with some GZG/ACPGames figures:

  2. Looks great to me. Thanks for the intel.
