Is There a Corgi/Corgi Juniors Database/Site Anywhere?

Post by WishItWas1984 »

I can't believe I'm having a hard time finding this....

I bought a loose Corgi Juniors Batcopter from a retro toy store yesterday and I was looking to figure out the year, version, etc.. so I could properly catalog it, but all I can find are pictures of different Batcopter variations, no actual website.

So does anyone know of a Corgi fan site similar to Rebelscum (Star Wars) or YoJoe (G.I. Joe) that has a full database of information?

Thanks

Still researching but while I still have not found an archive site for this, I did find 2 packaged examples of a Corgi Juniors Batcopter. #78 from 1976...but with 2 different stickers on the doors.

So it looks like they had variations in their releases? One sticker is the red Bat Symbol w/ yellow "BAT MAN" on it, and the other is plain red Bat Symbol.

Thanks!

That definitely helps narrow down that I have a Corgi Juniors Batcopter from 76-83 based on the markings on the underside of the propellers. No way to remotely get closer it seems unless I had the original cardback, but that's enough.

This book can help you, it has a detailed description of every Corgi car made until the late 80s.

Thanks! I went ahead and bought a copy.

I love reading about toy history as a collector and when out at conventions, I'm still looking for 1 Corgi I had as a kit (Spidercopter) and who knows if a few others will catch my eye. It'll be nice to know the details of what I'm looking at.

This book is fantastic.
I got one a couple of years ago and i learn a lot.

I remember the Spidercopter, I had the Corgi Juniors version, it was a very cool design.

They also had a Video-Documentary, I think it was official but I do not remember.

This book gives you details of every version, I think they also wrote about the American editions of Corgi Junior cars.
