Based in Hungary, Corgi contracted with Metalbox to re-issue Corgi Juniors under the Metalbox brand name.

They are also linked to a Yugo model with Auro Metal on the base. But, their are (2) known Metalbox Yogo vehicles - the 45 and the Koral 55.

The Metalbox logo at the time resembled the Matchbox logo down to the register mark.

They may or may not be related to Metalcar also from Hungary.

Metalbox is now noted to be a Chinese manufacture of diecast tanks & vehicles.
