A new addition to our reproductions is a Corgi Toys 235 Oldsmobile Super 88 Sedan Box.

Of course the Oldsmobile was also used as the basis for the Corgi Toys 497 Man from UNCLE “Thrushbuster” vehicle.

The Oldsmobile Super 88 Sedan was issued in either a pale blue or a metallic blue, both with white side stripes. The Sheriff car was only black with white side panels, while the Man from UNCLE version was generally in a dark metallic blue or the rare cream colour.

Our reproduction boxes are available for all of these models.

We were recently asked for a Matchbox Mercury Commuter 73 Repro Box and in the process of doing so we confirmed three variations of the box for this model.

This is one of the true transitional models that appeared with both the early regular wheels and the later Superfast wheels.

At the time of the first issue Regular Wheels model the boxes were done in the F style, circa 1967. As the first Supefrfast models were being rushed to market the box design was quickly changed to feature Superfast on the off-sides and as a logo on the front of what was basically the regular wheel F style box.

In the case of the Mercury Commuter Station Wagon the same picture of the model was simply modified to have the mag look Superfast wheels for a second box variation which we designate as F-SF2 style.

Subsequently when the first new design for Superfast models, the G style box series, was issued a third style for this model was released.

RecoverToy now has all three Mercury Commuter Wagon box variations available as reproductions:

Blue Box Toys

We have a selection of Blue Box Toys from Hong Kong in the 1960’s with boxes that we could reproduce, including a retailers display box outer container. However, we have a long list of other boxes that are ahead of these in priority. So, we thought we should “ask the audience”.

Is your collection in need of a reproduction replacement box for one of the following models ?  Would your Blue-Box collection look good with a retailers display box as a part of it ?

The boxes that we have include models; 7421, 7422,  7423, 7424, 7425, 7429, 7430, 7431, 7432 as well as the display box.

You can see the original Blue Box boxes and models that they suit over at Tonys Toys site. If you have an interest in Blue-Box reproduction boxes let us know via the RecoverToy Contact page.

New Reproduction Boxes

We have some new toy reproduction boxes in preparation at the moment including some Tri-ang Scalex boat boxes for the 414 and 415 boats.

Currently we are updating all the pictures of our Matchbox Lesney reproduction boxes to provide clearer images as some of them were over a decade old and taken with a comparatively low resolution camera.

A change to the format of the Schuco Micro Racer box. Where the original had an oval view hole for the colour of the vehicle and in the past we have tried to provide that cut-out, it is not as clean as we would like and we have elected to skip the cut-out and leave that face of the box with just plain colour.

If you have a tatty old box that you would like reproduced contact us for an appraisal. We have capacity for almost any box size including a 40″ bed high capacity roll printer for even the largest boxes and antique toy posters.

RecoverToy specialises in reproduction items for antique toys from the 20th century.
