2024 Nuremberg Toy Fair – Lots of news from Majorette


Frits is a Model Car Coordinator on hobbyDB and a collector of 3-inch police & fire cars. trucks/trailers, cranes of Dutch firms in 1/87 scale (diecast), Dutch police & fire cars in scales 1/87 to 1/43. And many more… Too much to list.  But find almost all of them here.

In 2024 Majorette celebrates its 60th anniversary! For this occasion, several new series are being issued, which all were presented at the 2024 Nuremberg Toy Fair.

Although I did not have an appointment with Majorette (part of the Simba-Dickie Group) at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, the Simba-Dickie Group people were very kind and helpful and I ended up getting a guided tour through the Majorette stand from one of their Product Managers, who provided a lot of background information about Majorette’s 2024 issues.

The first new series will be a “Majorette 60 Years – Anniversary Edition Deluxeseries, consisting of 6 models:

  1. VW T1 Foodtruck
  2. Ford Mustang
  3. Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34)
  4. Renault 5 Turbo
  5. Lamborghini Countach LP400
  6. Porsche 911 Carrera R.S. 2.7

They come on a blistercard and include a special tin plate “Majorette 60 Years” box.


 

The second series will be the Majorette 60 years – Anniversary Edition Premium, consisting of 6 Premium models with the different Majorette logos from the past 60 years:

 

Also, an Anniversary Edition 5-pack will be available, which includes a Citroen DS 21, a Chevrolet Corvette, a Datsun 260Z, an Alfa Romeo Giulia, and a Volvo 240 GL Estate.

NOTE: The Citroen DS 21 and the Datsun 260Z are exclusive to this giftpack!
The others are from the standard series.

Because Majorette is French, there will be a new French Touch series, which includes Premium, Deluxe, and Trailer issues. This new series will be available from Summer 2024 onward:

1. French Touch – Premium Cars: 6 models in the French flag colors (blue, white and red) with names of famous Paris monuments:



 

2. French Touch – Deluxe Cars: 6 models in special blister cards including tin boxes, with the theme “French specialties”:




In addition to the 4 models on the pictures, there will also be a green Renault Traffic “Olive oil” and a yellow Citroen HY “Dijon Mustard”.

3. French Touch – Trailer: This series will consist of 4 models with trailers and the names of French provinces on the cars:

    1. Bretagne: Peugeot 3008 GT with Boat Trailer
    2. Pays Basque: Land Rover Defender 90 with ERIBA Puck caravan
    3. Les Alpes: DS 7 with ERIBA Puck caravan
    4. Côte d’Azur: Renault Trafic with Kajak-Transporter

 

Also shown on the Fair was a Global Emergency Vehicles Anniversary Giftpack (Product # 212054104), containing 10 (!) cars, but as of today it is unclear if this set actually will be issued in the way it was shown.  The issue date is yet unknown:

  1. Red/white Ford F-150 Raptor
  2. Black/white Lamborghini Huracán US Police
  3. Black/white Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat US Police
  4. Black/white Kia Performance Car Police (or Honda Civic Type R Police)
  5. Blue Renault Alpine A110 S Gendarmerie
  6. Yellow/red Land Rover Defender 90 Emergency Medical team
  7. White Aston Martin Vantage GT8 UK Police
  8. Volvo V90 UK Police
  9. Toyota GT86 Japan Police
  10. Volkswagen ID Buzz German Notarzt van.

 

The next new series for 2024 is the “CastHeads Series” (Product # 212054210), which consists of the following 6 models, all related to the CastHeads Magazine:

Volkswagen T3  / Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7

Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 / Renault Clio 16S

Nissan Z / Nissan Cefiro A31

 

Last but not least, this exclusive “60 years Majorette First Ever Race Car” promotional model in red/gold (Casting # 282D) was handed out to selected visitors (including the author of this article 😊!):



 

 

 

 

 

This specific version will not be available in the regular stores, but there will be an Anniversary Edition series of 6 First Ever Race Car models in various colors (Product # 212054103), so enough choice for the collector! These models will be available from May 2024 onward.

Overall, a lot of exciting models coming our way! Great job Majorette, looking forward to the next 60 years!
