Olympic idols inspire die-cast figurines

Published on: 23rd July 2012

To celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Hornby Hobbies has produced a 5,000-piece limited edition collection of die-cast figurines representing 30 Olympic and Paralympic sporting pictograms.

Designed to be vibrant and accurate visual depictions of each sport, pictograms will be used in the run up to and during the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012 for signage, on tickets and on the field of play at Games-time, becoming an important finder tool for spectators.

The full collection is available now via Official London 2012 stores, John Lewis, and other good high street retailers.
