In winter 2018/19, the publishing house Hachette introduced a series of replicas of Mercury models in Italy under the name of "Mercury - la collezione". Every two weeks from then, a new model was issued. Similar to the Dinky Toys Atlas series, the new models are quite exact copies of obsolete model cars, in this case 1/48th scale Mercury models originally released between 1954 and 1964. The re-editions only differ from the original models by the inscription on the baseplate, small details and the better quality of paint job and decorations. They are made in China by Ixo and come with a reproduction of the original cardboard box and a magazine providing some information about the original car and the model. Similar reproductions had already been made by Scottoy from 1994 to 2007, but made of white metal and in some cases with additional details.
