It was just a typical day for me, being attached by trolls...
I was on the annual trip to the London Toy Fair to report on exciting model railway matters. With Hornby, Bassett-Lowke, Bachmann and Oxford taking stands, there was certainly going to be plenty to see.
All this can be read in my official reports over on World of Railways:
- Hornby (G1 train set plus new announcements)
- Bassett-Lowke (Steampunk)
- Bachmann (Thomas range)
- Oxford (Diecast items)
Anyway, I spotted a few other goodies.
This range of Hot Wheels cars are slot-together kits on friction drive chassis. Each will be sold in a "blind bag" so you don't know what you get until you buy it. Looks fun and a nice bit of construction for the buyer.
Playmobil haven't re-introduced the railway range (Boo) and the motorisable boats don't look to have been added to much either.
Although this rescue boat might just be big enough to get R/C in to.
The real stars though were on the Sixteen 12 Collectables stand.
Loads of Gerry Anderson models including a 3ft long Thunderbird 3 and lots and lots of Space 1999 Eagle Transporters. I want this beast of a model.
