Let’s Talk IXO 09 Subjects..

posted in Diecast, Other Cars, Formula 1 |

Today IXO confirmed all of their 1:43 releases for the first five months of 2009. In the past we have concentrated on IXO’s Ferrari and Le Mans Winners collections, but now, as with Minichamps and Spark, we will be offering all of their 1:43s to pre-order. Our ‘New Announcements’ section currently has all of these new subjects featured in it.

AUTOart confirmed today that we will now not see their 1:18 silver Koenigsegg CCX (AA79003) in time for Christmas. Moreover, the first colourway released will now not be silver, but orange (AA79001)! Hopefully we will see it on their January container.

Minichamps sent us a sample of their 1:18 Lewis Hamilton 2008 McLaren MP4/23 (DC2822), complete in its final packaging, so that it is a good sign that we will see it in time for Christmas. It is currently slated to be released on the Friday before Christmas, so it’s going to be close! That will obviously also have an impact on when we will be able to despatch our exclusive 1:18 F1 World Champion presentation (DC2008).

    Hi again Leigh. Do you know roughly when we’ll see the Ixo flip box Ford sets?

    IXO still haven’t announced dates for these yet, so I’m not sure that we’ll see them in time for Christmas.
