Toy Fair 2010

15. February 2010

Dear Schuco fans,

The 61st International Toy Fair has opened in Nuremberg. Once again, this day has been anticipated with great excitement by hundreds of model fans and we will not disappoint you. We are delighted to be able to showcase many interesting new model releases.

Following the re-release of the legendary Curvo 1000 in 2009, this year it is the turn of the Charly 1005 to expand the classic range. In addition, there will also be the Elektro Razzia car 5509 in a fire engine version, the “game and reality” set and the “Nürburgring Grand Prix of Europe 1954 race” set.

In 2009 SCHUCO surprised its fans with a unique innovation and supplied two models on a scale of 1:18; a VW T2a bus and a Porsche 356 A Coupé with the latest 2.4GHz radio technology. This year two more models are appearing under the SCHUCOTRONIC 2.4 label: a “Polizei” 1600 beetle and a Unimog 401 with snow plough. On the same scale but without propulsion, SCHUCO will present a Martini race transporter, a Porsche 356 A Speedster and Coupé and other variants of the VW T2a. A new release of a VW T1 box car will add to the range.

Promising equal success are the cars on a scale of 1:43 including the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLS, Mini Cooper and VW T1 Samba with Hymer Eriba Puck, Opel Commodore B GS/E, Porsche 911 Carrera 2.8 RST and VW LT. And we should not forget to mention the very latest range of the new car models such as the Audi R8 Spyder, BMW 5-door (as GT, touring and limousine models), BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz E-class Cabriolet and the SLS AMG Coupé, Porsche 911 Sport Classic, VW Passat Variant and limousine and Touareg 2010.

Three motorcycle classics with reworked spoke wheels on a scale of 1:10 will be presented: BMW R90/S, Horex Regina and Kreidler Florett Super.

And collectors and fans of Piccolo models are eagerly anticipating new releases in the area of historical racing sports vehicles, namely the Porsche 935, AEC Lotus “Gold Leaf” race transporter and the Fiat 642 RN set.

Our models on a scale of 1:87 have gained an excellent reputation in the world of agriculture. In addition to the two new models by CLAAS, the Jaguar 960 with DIRECT DISC and trailer and the TUCANO 450 with trailer, there will also be two new models in the John Deere brand, the 8R and 8RT as well as a KRONE BiGM 400. Other new releases will also be presented in the automotive area including the Audi R8, Porsche Cayenne S “Transsiberia”, as well as in the historical racing sports range including the Audi Quattro Sport, BMW 3.5 CSL, BMW M1, and Ford Capri group 5.

Numerous new releases are offered in Edition 1:32 which was launched in 2008. At the 2010 Toy Fair SCHUCO will be presenting no fewer than nine new models such as the Fendt 9460, the replica Massey Ferguson MF 9895 rotary combine, the MB trac 1800 Intercooler and the Unimog U 1600 with field tyres in what is probably the most popular scale for models in the agricultural sector. Completely new models here are the Fendt 626 LSA, the Eicher 3145 Turbo and the CLAAS CARGOS 9500 combi-wagon.
