Nuremberg 2012: Exciting Stuff from Majorette

Posted by: LaToya in Member Blogs

I visited the Majorette stand today and checked out their plans for 2012 - some great stuff coming!

To start with, they've decided to look back to vintage Majorette's quality values, with a range of three-inch featuring opening parts, suspension and extra-quality tampo'd lights and details. They envisage ten models per year with the range split equally between European, Japanese and American subject matter. 


Here's some of the pre-pro samples and a flyer with upcoming issues:











There will also be territory-specific Emergency vehicles, with specific liveries for Germany, Italy, France, etc.





And some new gift sets with emergency themes:






They'll also be continuing their playset garage system; this is all designed to be interlinked so huge structures can be built and cars will actually drive themselves down the ramps.



Of course, there will be new standard models too:





There will also be a range of play-value car-launchers, playmats, a car-shaped carry case that can also launch cars and be used as a toy itself, and a wide range of licensed tie-ins to the upcoming Avengers and Spider-Man movie.

Thanks. Had a look at our local Toymaster in Huddersfield and all they sell is < slightly overpriced in my opinion > some Siku, Hot Wheels and multi pack Teamsterz. Apart from the big supermarkets who sell Realtoy which i love but am geting bored of, I struggle to buy interesting 1/64 scale toys from other retailers. Any ideas?

Yes my friend, I just wondered whether other minor/major retailers in Britain still sold anything interesting in 1/64 scale other than Realtoy, Matchbox, Hot Wheels and the horrible < in my opinion > generic vehicles made by Motormax and sold at Toys R Us.
Kind regards

At Toys'r US they have Realtoy vehicles with nowadays terrible wheels, though it doesn't have to be like that:

As for Majorette: I am not living in Britain and have moved out of Ireland, therefore I think you need to ask somebody else. Try the topic starter?

Surprised to see the BMW X6 between new cars as this one is available (I have only been able to find in 5 packs, so not bought it yet)
