With an already dedicated army of followers, Oxford Diecast are sure to increase their fanbase by adding the iconic JCB brand to their range of licensed toys.
The news was confirmed in trade publications in October 2016 when concept artwork and prototype models were first unveiled.
Already confirmed is the compact JCB 3CX Eco Backhoe Loader. Set to retail in the UK at around £22.95, this scale model digger will compete squarely with the Bruder and Tomy’s Britains alternatives.
Oxford are supremely confident in their product, stating “each of these die-cast models are created by craftsmen and finished by hand to standards of quality rarely seen before in examples of this scale at such affordable prices.”
Also set for release is the classic JCB Major Mark 1 digger. The other two early releases are the Transit Service Van and Land Rover Support Vehicle, both JCB branded.
Initially available in the 1:76 scale in the iconic yellow JCB livery, known and respected the world over, later releases will feature the Union Jack livery. Through 2017 there will be further announcements on different scale releases.
