The fourth in a series of books, "Matchbox - The Tyco Years,1993-1994" is mind-bogglingly exhaustive in its completeness.It delineates every single Matchbox product issued in the short two-year period since the purchase of the brand by Tyco. It's only shortcoming is that the price guide, variation list, and pictorial guide are three separate sections, meaning the reader must flip back and forth to cross-reference. The book's author Charlie Mack has arguably the largest Matchbox toy collection in the United States, perhaps in the world. Last count was over 18,000 different specimens! They can all be seen in his museum in Durham, Connecticut, by appointment only. Also see: Universal's Matchbox Toys, 1982-1992 Lesney's Matchbox Toys, the Superfast Years, 1968-1982 Lesney's Matchbox Toys, the Regular Wheels Years, 1947-1968
