One of our favorite toymakers is branching out its lineup of heirloom-quality toy cars into the first responder category. Automoblox has unveiled a new Emergency Line of rescue, police and fire vehicles based on three of its most popular models. The T900 truck becomes a go-anywhere rescue vehicle, the S9 sedan a patrol cruiser and the X9-X sport utility a capable transport for fire fighters.
Revealed on the company’s official Facebook page, the Emergency Line features color schemes appropriate to each branch of public service, new wheels (the S9’s dog-dish cop car wheels are particularly accurate and excellent), light bars and even new people figurines that represent the fire, police and rescue workers who help out the public from behind the wheel.
A typical regular-sized Automoblox model goes for between $40 and $50, so we’re impressed the company held the line for these special models: the T900 rescue truck goes for $50, the S9 police car for $45 and the X9-X fire SUV for $45. The Emergency Line will be available in the US, Australia and Hong Kong by August 5 at the latest, and then Germany, France, Italy and Canada later this year. They aren’t quite ready to accept pre-orders, but you can Like Automoblox on Facebook to stay in the loop.
