Toy Fair 2008

04. February 2008

Dear Schuco fans,

The Nuremberg Toy Fair has now begun. Hundreds of model fans have been waiting for this day with great anticipation and we will not disappoint you. We are pleased to be able to present many interesting new model releases.

The highlight in the Classic-Sortiment must surely be the “Schuco Racing Service” set. Following the enormous success of the historical utility vehicles on a scale of 1:18, the VW Bus T2 box car and the Porsche 356 as the first car in this size will be sure of attracting plenty of attention. No less promising are the 1:43 models of the historical utility vehicles (including Lanz the D 6006, Citroen HY, Mercedes-Benz LP) and cars (including the Opel Manta B400 and Porsche 911 S). Not to be forgotten is also the very latest range of new car models including the Audi Q5, BMW X6, Opel GTC Concept, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and the VW Tiguan. More motorcycle classics (Yamaha SV 110 Virago) have been included in the 1:10 scale range of vehicles. And collectors and fans of PICCOLO models are eagerly anticipating new releases in the area of historical racing sports vehicles (Lotus 49 and Porsche 935).

SCHUCO’s Edition 1:87 which is becoming more popular has a whole range of Mercedes-Benz models waiting in the wings and is breaking into new territory with its agricultural miniatures at amazing value for money. The SCHUCO JUNIOR LINE also has many new items which SCHUCO is bringing back to the playroom and, above all, these include the historical metal DISTLER Figuren on a scale of 1:24 and the die-cast military models from the FORCES OF VALOR brand of products and also on offer is the EXOTO range - exclusive sport and racing car models. This also applies of course to aircraft miniatures in the SCHABAK range which was acquired last year.

You will find information about the new releases under the appropriate tabs.

Have fun surfing on

With warm greetings from Fürth,

The Schuco Team
