Spielwaren Messe Neurenberg 2017 + Pictures!

I was just looking at the Revell webcams of the Toy Fair, and noticed that Cars 3 will be featured with their Revell Junior Kits.

 

I think this is a brilliant idea of getting kids interested in the model kits again and it will be no doubt a good seller.

Cool! I have two grandsons that will be excited, the two year old will be happy just to watch grandpa put his together so he can play with it. And the nine year old is autistic and a real wizard, just not very good social skills, he's really into video games , (yeah I tried) but has enjoyed his Impala police car, the Mustang, and the Jeep. But he's really into the die cast Cars vehicles so maybe he'll get a little more interested in model building if it's something he enjoys and understands better.

My 6 year old daughter has built some of the Zvezda Cars kits and enjoyed them, so I'm happy Revell is getting into the game as well. I'll have to check these out for her.

I assume no photos of Panamera or the Porsche tractor?

I notice with the bonus of "Vrooom" sound!  That's a deal maker right there.

Nothing found yet, but when I do, I'll post them.

 

@The Junkman Someone else noticed that there are 2! McQueen kits, a Junior and a snapkit....

I can see that Revell is releasing stuff that I have to buy for my son. The Cars models is something that he would love to get his hands on.

The Porsche tractor is a "must have", although I'm disappointed it's a snapper.  I may have to get one of those ICM 6 wheelers as well, looks good built up.

One thing I don't see in those pictures, that I did see in someone elses is the Talbot Record is being reissued by Heller.  I was hoping once this mass reissue campaign started they'd get around to kicking it back out as well.

That Talbot looks interesting.  Speaking of Heller, was there any mention of the Renault Estafette vans that were announced last year? 

Edit: apparently not from what I've heard from other sources.

^^^ Was just about to ask the same thing.

On one of the ICM photos I spy a newer, round-fendered Model T in olive drab - maybe a WWI ambulance similar to this one?

No 1/24 Packard limo yet?

ICM does have an WWI era ambulance Model T kit,  but it's in 1/35 scale.

Don't hold your breath for it. I wish it came, but it might not come at all. Thanks to Heller almost going bankrupt, it is all on hold and there is serious doubt whether we're going to see it.
