Corgi "Destination London" 2012 Olympics London Taxi
|Model Type||Vehicle - Passenger Car|
To commemorate the London 2012 Olympics, Corgi is producing the "Destination London" London Taxi Series, with each model in a different colour and featuring a tampo logo depicting a different sport from the Olympics or Paralympics. The first four models are "Rhythmic Gymnastics", "Track Cycling", "Judo" and "Wheelchair Basketball". A total of 40 different models will be produced in the range.
Finished variously in white, orange, blue or pink, each of these models comes in its own individual packaging with factoids about the sport represented on the model.
A Treat for Taxi Fans
Nicely done for their size - the wheels are particularly nice - these Corgi models are sure to be a hit with Taxi collectors worldwide. The castings are simple but accurate and the liveries are bright and cheerful and they should look very nice put up in a cabinet together should you decide to go after all 40 to be issued in the series! The packaging has also been well thought out, with interesting factoids about the sports represented, bright colours and an impressive "Official London 2012 product" hologram sticker.
