2014 Hess Limited Edition Tanker Truck.
Original Cost: $45.99
To mark the golden anniversary of the Hess Toy Truck collection, Hess offered separately, a limited-production, individually numbered Collector’s Edition Toy Truck – a first in the collection’s history. This truck went on sale at midnight October 2 exclusively online with free shipping and sold out before Thanksgiving! The demand was so great that the server that Hess used crashed causing orders to be halted. After a few hours it was fixed but crashed again. Eventually Hess straightened out the problem and orders continued. Some features on the trucks are:
- A hinged door at the back of the tanker gives access to the 1964 Hess Toy Truck tanker replica inside.
- The Collector’s Edition Hess Toy Truck has over 100 working lights – the most of any Hess Toy Truck.
- The Collector’s Edition Hess Toy Truck is packaged in a unique, commemorative display box.
- First ever undercarriage lighting.
