The Hess Corporation has finally given us a look at the 2015 version of their popular toy truck. Hess revealed the new fire truck and ladder rescue toy, which has been called “the newest and boldest emergency vehicle.” The truck features 50 LED lights, pivoting searchlight, and two moveable fire hoses. The smaller ladder rescue has a rotating extension ladder, moveable nozzle, and 21 lights.
Collectors have been going crazy over these trucks since their introduction in 1964. 2015 marks the first year the trucks will be sold after the selling off of the company’s gas stations to Marathon Petroleum. The new trucks will be ready for purchase online starting November 1st. Plus, 10 shopping malls in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey will have the toy for sale on November 12th.
The $30.99 online price includes free shipping and five batteries. While this price might seem a little high for most people, we don’t see these collectibles taking too long to sell out!
