What is the correct way to use Regex for this probelm?

I have a string that is built something like this.

Dim strTest As New System.Text.StringBuilder

        For I = 1 To 100
            strTest.Append(Chr(128))
            strTest.Append(I.ToString)
            strTest.Append(Chr(129))
        Next

        Dim regPart As New System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex(Chr(128) + ".*" + Chr(129))
        For Each matchPart As System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match In regPart.Matches(strTest.ToString)
            Dim strTest2 As String = matchPart.ToString
        Next

What I want the regex to do is return 100 matches, but what it is doing is returning one match that is the entire string.

What am I doing wrong?
