Robin Hood (Crescent related ?)

Postby Fox » Sat Oct 08, 2016 8:14 am

Hello.

Here is my only Robin Hood car.

I've seen it as Robin Hood Crescent in a RR dedicated database and mine has even a collector label showing Crescent.

But just let's go for pictures of this Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith.
It's a 1948 mazak toy.

Just a few notes for this model as it is a very interesting model with a complicated back story and several versions are known to exist.

'ROBIN HOOD' seems to be a 'Range' name the same as Corgi Toys is a range name used by Mettoy-Playcraft.
'Toy Products Ltd' seem to be the actual manufacturer, which is why the 'TP Series' (Toy Products), is printed on the boxes.

Ian at 'ToysNZ' has done some sterling research here...http://toysnz.com/ToyProducts-RobinHood

of the cars in the range I have the Bentley 2 door coupe with 'CC' letters cast to the underside of the front bumper (Crescent Company!), but NO Robin Hood.

Thanks for the promotion Kevin... I personally have not come across any reference to the ""CC" letters cast on the bumper nor have I found any discussion or suggestion that there may be a "Crescent" connection.

Toy products did two versions of the rolls royce,one clockwork the other a push toy,both my examples are poor,heres some old photos i had stored,the other photos of the rest of the range again are old photos ,this is not the complete range,the other models i know about are a low back truck which thanks to Ewan i have now somewhere, and there is a larger truck that came has an ice cream truck and fire truck,the fire truck i have a poor example of.
