Yes, they are worth it for Mansell fans and Matchbox collectors.
Mostly when that diecast was the last ever Matchbox tool design of a formula car (it lasted with fantasy colors in the regular 1-75 range until 1998).

There seem to be a few different 'Nigel Mansell' sets on Ebay right now. Prices vary depending on the set.

There's a couple with one F1 car and another model - either a second car, a helicopter or a van. Then there's a set with a transporter, helicopter, van and so on.

Looks like about forty pounds is the price for the full set.

If you keep your eyes open you can pick them up very cheaply - don't just go for the Buy It Now option. The gift sets especially are very nice, and there's a good larger transporter with car set, plus several twin packs with a car and another vehicle. A bit more tricky is the FW14 on its own in a numbered box from some kind of event promotion, but they're out there if you wait.
