Hess Debuts New Edition in Miniature Truck Series

NEW YORK -- A miniature space shuttle and accompanying tractor trailer transport are blasting off as part of Hess Corp’s. collectible Miniature Truck Series.

Each year, Hess’ Miniature Truck Series pays tribute to a popular Hess holiday Toy Truck from the past, packing craftsmanship and detail into a pair of small-scale vehicles.

This year’s edition is based on the popular 1999 Hess Holiday Toy Truck and Space Shuttle, and features a sleek space shuttle with working lights and rolling wheels for smooth landings; an 18-wheeler tractor trailer transport with working headlights, taillights and accent lights; a trailer bed that serves as the shuttle’s landing pad; as well as a display stand where both vehicles can dock, according to the company.

The 2009 Mini Truck goes on sale today at participating Hess and Hess Express retail stores for $6.99 plus tax, while supplies last. Energizer batteries are included.

"This year’s Mini Truck has something for everyone," stated Rick Lawlor, vice president of retail marketing for Hess Corp. "Kids will love all the fun features on both vehicles, parents will appreciate the quality and durability, and collectors will recognize the attention to detail and value that they’ve come to expect from Hess."

The Hess Toy Truck, launched in 1964, is one of the longest running toy brands on the market.
