Corgi New Announcements

Corgi have now announced details of their forthcoming releases in the July to December 2016 catalogue.
As we mentioned previously, there has certainly been a reduction in the usual planned releases for both the Vanguards & Original Omnibus range.
Although given the amount of models that have been delayed from the Jan - June catalogue this may be no bad thing & give Corgi a chance to catch up!

Just 5 new models for Vanguards

In the Original Omnibus Range there's another New Routemaster
This time in an attractive London General Heritage Livery
Available with either Liverpool Street or Fulham Broadway destination.

This Wright Eclipse is destined to Harry Potter fans

It's good to see more varied livery vehicles now being produced & those that will appeal to more than just the usual bus collectors.

These models & the rest of the new announcements are all available to pre order now from our website

Less is more....

Hornby have announced today they will be reducing the number of items they produce by 40% in the coming year.
The reduction will be split across their portfolio of brands.

The idea being that by offering fewer lines they'll be able to focus on the quality & availability of the remaining lines.

As a stockist of Corgi items, we're well aware of the delays on previously announced items coming into stock. Hopefully this will improve things!

Interestingly the forthcoming Corgi releases for June - December 2016 are being announced tomorrow. 

We'll be posting details of the models here & updating our website shortly after with all the models available to pre order
