10/30/14: 2014 Hess Toy Truck and Space Cruiser with Scout

Evan loves his Hess Vehicles.  He has been collecting them for quite a while.  He was extremely excited when the new 2014 Hess Toy Truck and Space Cruiser with Scout arrived.  This Hess Truck is the official 50th anniversary truck!
 Here you can see Evan with his collection.  We have even bought him some of the older ones at toy conventions.  He really wanted the Police Car so that took a while to find.
As soon as he saw the green wrapped box he knew exactly what it was and ripped right in.
When he saw it had a Space Cruiser he was very excited as he did not have any trucks with space vehicles.
 Then he saw the little Scout and loved it.
 He loved how small it was but that it lit up brightly.
 The 2014 Hess Toy Truck is a space cruiser, with retractable landing gear, flashing lights and button-activated and motion-activated sound effects, riding on top of a flatbed truck. 
A cargo door on the space cruiser opens to reveal the scout that features folding wings and working lights. The flatbed truck doubles as a launch pad complete with a button-activated launch ramp with hydraulic lift, 3 realistic sound effects and 41 lights.
What I especially love about Hess Vehicles is that they are so well built.  They last no matter how hard kids play with them.
The heavy-duty flatbed is a launch pad and transporter.  The truck has 3 push-button activated sound effects (ignition, horn, ramp hydraulic and launch alarm), 41 lights work in steady or flashing mode, push-button activated launch ramp elevates with sound effect.
The truck sports plenty of chrome detailing, including a bold 50 embossed on the cab side panels that officially designate this as the 50th Anniversary Hess Toy Truck!
A push button activated cargo door opens to reveal the Scout, a flyer with folding wings and working lights. 
The Space Cruiser has 3 button-activated sounds (ignition, fly-by, and land), 3 motion-activated sound effects (climb, dive, and turn), 8 lights that work in flash or steady mode, retractable landing gear and push-button activated cargo door with Scout vehicle inside.

Here is some video of it in action:
There’s also an Official Certificate of Title available for printing at after purchase!
Evan definitely loves this truck and has been playing with it non-stop since he got it.
