Our intrepid SlotForum reporters have arrived in a very cold Nürnberg. We will be visiting as many slot related exhibitors as possible during the trip.

Please feel free to post a couple questions here if you have something specific to ask.

Reports to follow.

Check back here as we'll link to them from this post and topic, updating it as more information comes in.

Click on the banners below to go to the reports:

























If you are interested in trains and would like to see what was on offer, check out the Model Rail Forum Toy Fair reports.

For a few other items (RC planes and cars etc.), see here.

Hey, look who I bumped into at the start of the ToyFair, Nick & Sean.

So we're at the fair and busy with reporting. Carrera is done and the others will follow. I'll put up photos as we go along and we'll update the reports with the text and news when we get back and consolidate our data.

Great! Finally a touring car Sierra!

Gareth regrets that it isn't a rally version, but hey - there are some already from AA and SCX. Especially we german guys have been waiting for the DTM-Sierras for ages.

Adding photos slowly. Internet available everywhere, but fiendishly slow.

Loads of meetings set up for tomorrow. Adam, our trusty note-taker is typing up the reports and I'll match them to the photos when I get back at the week-end.

QUOTE Aircraft on the Ninco stand?

Yes, it seems the Ninco RC stuff has really 'taken off'

hey Doug

Do you only check out the slot cars or do you check out the other toys as well? Would be interested if you saw any other cool toys on display

HI

Great pictures ... thanks so much. I am wondering, re, Ninco comment above, if you are seeing that in general the manufacturers are being more cautious this year in terms of new offerings. In other words, are you seeing much evidence at the fair of the broader economic troubles and uncertainties?

all my very best,

Charles

What about SCX? I know they aren´t officially at the fair, but are there any news presented thru the german distributor or other?
