Nuremberg Toy Fair 2012 - New from Corgi: Three Inch Toy Range!

Posted by: LaToya in Member Blogs

Here's something very new from Corgi - a three-inch (that's 1/64 scale-ish) range of toys! 

Of course everybody remembers Corgi Juniors, but they've been history for quite some time and Corgi has been focusing on the collector market. Now, however, they've decided to move back into the small-scale toy market with a new range including models, playsets and multi-packs designed to compete with supermarket-sold stuff like Hot Wheels, Realtoy etc. 

Most of the models are trucks, military or construction, with a few tractors etc thrown in. There are only a couple of cars for now (a Mini and a London Taxi) although most of the castings are licensed. The toys have been designed to be chunky and feel heavy and high-quality, and so they have thicker axles and more realistic wheels than some counterparts. There are also trailers with boats etc. Here's a look at what's in the range...





























Here's the Mercedes Ambulance up-close. This is a sample with nothing on the baseplate; they'll be marked "Corgi" in the finished versions.

@bbubblegunner - at the moment I believe these are going to be UK/EU market only, but will check in with Corgi about the US sales situation. Majorette are in the EU only at present, as I understand it.

Unfortunately the Mini isn't there - I'd have definitely photographed that one individually if it was assets/smilies/smiley.gif

I think I have seen the Mini and London Taxi (LTI) as Olympic Games promotionals...
