1985 Matchbox SDF-1 Playset


Recommended Posts

This playset is sooooo hard to find and I was curious how many of you if any, have ever come across one. If so what did it or would it go for. I hope to eventually grab one of these since I have just recently started collecting Matchbox/Harmony Gold Robotech figures.

Oh man, good luck on this bad boy. Rare doesnt even describe it, ive only seen two of these in all the time ive been collecting, its one of the holy grail of matchbox robotech toys. I have no idea what it would go for but if I had to guess id say over a grand for a complete set, a MIB set would be well over that.

Hey, I know this post is kind of old and I don't know if this is the right place to post this, sorry if it isn't. I've noticed some people searching for the Matchbox SDF-1 playset, both on forums and on the official Robotech forum. I have one that I got as a child, just found it in storage. Its never been opened, mint in box. The box has some slight wear on it from the years. Any idea what this would be worth? and where I can sell this, other than ebay?

If you have grown matured and the the playset is from your childhood then the rate would not go too much high and related to its selling, I don't think that other than online buying and selling websites you would get a good customer as well as a good money for yourself and for your stuff.

I picked one up last year loose and complete from a local dealer. Funny story, a guy on Kijjiji posted his entire collection for sale. When I went their he said a guy came just before me and bought allot of his vintage stuff including the playset and a complete Robotech collection. A few weeks later, the guy who bought it put the playset on Ebay but it never hit its reserve. I was able to contact him after the auction and make a deal on it.


If i would have been a few hours earlier to the gus house who originally had it in his collection, I basically would have been able to knock a "0" off the price i paid. Still worth it for a super rare piece.
