TRUCK Attack

Latest die-cast hunt is not on car's but on Truck. The truck is made for German market, brand is Schuco but some how end up in MY toy store. (check the wording on the trailer)

Schuco is a German toy maker founded in 1912 by Heinrich Müller and the businessman Heinrich Schreyer. Originally this company was named as Spielzeugfirma Schreyer & Co, but in 1921 the company changed the name to Schuco. For more detail on their products please visit http://www.schuco.de/uk/news.htm

I found this trucks from a local toys store on last Monday before Hari Raya and I went back on the Friday after Raya with a friend to check out the others truck but it is all been taken off. The supplier did say they will restock but it may take 2 - 3 month & maybe no longer available :(

This truck is more detail then some model that I already have, such as Matchbox & Majorette trucks. First of all the price.

This truck is selling at RM 5.90 each.

Detail area on the model : Truck head grill with chrome logo for each brand of the truck(NOT silver paint), printed words on some truck at the side & back, front & back lights, chrome rim & rubber looking tires and detail under the truck & trailer.

The Mercedes-Benz Actros is a heavy duty truck introduced by Mercedes-Benz in 1996. It is normally used for long-distance haulage, heavy duty distribution haulage and construction haulage. It is available in weights of 18 to 250 tonnes[citation needed] and is powered by a V6 or V8 cylinder engine with turbo and intercooler. Mercedes-Benz launched Actros II in 2002.

The real Mercedes-Benz launched Actros II

Check-out the detail of the trailers.

This truck is much detail then I thought until I open it up and remove the trailer from the truck.

The locking plate is movable for this Mercedes-Benz launched Actros II.
