Update: Here is the 2017 Hess Truck that was released for the 2017-2018 holiday season. Called the 2017 Dump Truck and Loader, its a very interesting and high quality toy set great for collection as well as playing for kids. Hurry up and order your one today. Its fast selling out. Many people are ordering two, one for their collection, one for playing.
Now that we have the new 2016 Hess Truck, the next big question in the Hess truck world is the 2017 Hess Truck. But what will the NEXT Hess toy truck for 2017 look like?
There was much anticipation for this new Hess truck until it was released on 1st of November 2016. And finally we got this 2016 Hess Truck and Dragster car set. It is the latest Hess truck we can buy until the 2017 Hess truck is released probably in early November 2017.
Tough there is almost a year more till the 2017 Hess toy truck is released, the anticipation and speculation has already begun among Hess fans for the Hess truck 2017.
No one knows what the 2017 Hess truck will be yet. It is a closely guarded secret by Hess corporation. But maybe we can make a educated guess looking at the history of Hess trucks modeled released upto now. Here is the poster featuring all Hess trucks released upto now.
This is a Hess Toy Truck 50th Anniversary Poster By Carillion Press. It shows the full list of Hess truck toys from the first Hess truck released in 1964 until the 2014 Hess truck, the year Hess trucks celebrated the 50 years golden jubilee anniversary. Only 2 Hess truck are missing on this poster. The 2015 Hess truck and the 2016 Hess truck models that were released after this 50th anniversary.
According to Andrew Liptak, the Hess oil company has been releasing one replica toy model each year from their vast fleet of company vehicles. Since 1964 every year for the last 50 plus years, they have released many kinds of toy trucks. These have been mostly toy trucks and have ranged from Hess fire trucks, Hess semis, Hess tankers, Hess tractor-trailers to Hess pickups. They have also release other types of vehicles, including Hess tanker ships, Hess front loaders, and even Hess airplanes. All these represented the vehicles used in the Hess company’s vast pool of vehicles.
What is so admirable about these Hess trucks are they are more high quality than most toy trucks for sale in the market today. These Hess trucks make great fun toys for kids and toy model collectors alike.
Recently Ms Susan Peach sent a message to Toy Truck Toys asking us, “Are there any Hess garbage trucks available?” To our knowledge Hess toy trucks haven’t released any toy garbage trucks so far. Since Hess is a oil company (and used to be a gas station owner as well till 2014), they may not have had a reason to release a Hess garbage truck.
However of all the toy truck models for sale in the market today, garbage truck toys are the second best selling type of toy truck. There sales and popularity is only second to toy dump trucks. So I would love to see a Hess garbage truck someday. It would be great if the 2017 Hess truck happens to be a Hess garbage truck.
