The Corgi Collector Club marks its 30th Anniversary in August 2014 with a celebratory truck, commissioned especially for Club members and comprising a limited edition of only 900 pieces. It will be available towards the end of August.

The Club was founded in August 1984 by the late Don Fuller who was Corgi’s Design Manager following the management buy-out in March that year. He produced the magazine in response to the growing demand for information following the launch of an innovative range of models aimed at the hitherto untapped adult market which Corgi Toys Limited had identified following the buy-out. The current editor, Susan Pownall took over the Club and the editorship of the Club magazine shortly afterwards, a post which she still holds, 30 years on. At its peak, the Club had over 11,000 subscribers worldwide, many of whom continue their membership today, boasting the ownership of every Club model, magazine and catalogue!

The 1/76 scale truck, decorated in special Anniversary livery, is available now through the Corgi Collector Club and comes with a Limited Edition Certificate denoting it as one of only 900 produced. It is priced at £34.99 plus postage.
