    Wow - see an ambulance and some police cars but really intrigued by the Petty Blue Dodge set - even though it does not appear to be marked Petty.

          So much nice stuff Siku is doing--so little money. Throw in the fact that it is seldom seen in the US, and European shipping is expensive, and it's tough. My last Siku was the Sprinter/Rosenbauer "Mountain" fire truck, and only because it was Prime-eligible for some reason


          I see that Siku now is finally offering a MKIII Sprinter, after skipping the facelifted MKII; while still using the old casting. Hopefully, next year, there will be a new 1:50 ambulance casting. The current one is twelve years old--yikes!

          The police van version of the ambulance in the police set is great, but I'm not spending what will probably be close to a hundred dollars on it--and that doesn't include EUR to US shipping. Same goes for Siku Control. Always wanted one of the RC tractors to mess with and run implements in small scale. But, they are like $200 when shipping is factored in. In the Claas parts catalog are a couple SIKU CONTROL models, and we have a Claas dealer about two hours from here. I'm going to call the dealer, and see if they can order it for me.

            I'm in for the Volvo cab - the rest is ok.
            The MB E-Class All Terrain sits too high in my opinion and does the yellow Mustang really have a tow hitch?

              Anyone know what scale the John Deere Gator is? Appears better detailed than the ERTL offering in 1/64.


              Michael, maybe start a sticky yearly thread with links to new releases from Siku, Schuco and others?

                Well, I can see I'm gonna be pretty busy trying to get those fire apparatus and ambulances and police cars...just from the January flyer. Time to start setting aside the funds...

                  I really hope they do the Benz wagon with a normal stance as well. The All-Terrain has too much ground clearance

                    I collect their 1:50 trucks and construction vehicles. They are well detailed and remind me of Matchbox King Size models from the 60s and 70s. Whenever I'm in Germany, I make sure to bring some home. That said, it doesn't look like they are doing a lot with those kinds of items this year. The farm implement collectors will once again do quite well.

                      Nothing too exciting for me,..
                      Some nice cars that already had been made by other manufacturers like the McLaren Senna and the Mustang.
                      A nice opening BMW i8, but way too big
                      And this horrible E-Class All-Terrain

                      It doesn't look too good for the future of Siku,..

                          Definitely what Siku lacks in is Youngtimers (cars that are around 20-30 years old) and Classic cars in their lineup. Like mainline Tomica they tend to focus mainly on the toy market. But brands like Mattel's HotWheels and Matchbox seem to focus a lot on the collector market in their product choices, Even sorta treating their mainlines like "Limited Edition" collectibles.

                            Some really neat models, but sadly in 1:50, so they should be a little too big. And that Mercedes All-Terrain looks horrible! The Mustang is nice, as are the other DTM-like racers, but nothing very exciting. Where are the bread and butter VW and Opel, Siku?

                              Posted pics of the two new Siku from the first 2020 flyer I received this week over in the apparatus bay...the Polizei "water canon" and the "elevating rescue platform" truck in Feuerwehr livery. Still awaiting the Multistar Telescoping platform...it's "in the mail" and somewhere between here and there. Hadn't seen the ambulances or police cars yet online or I'd have them coming, too.
