Patent Filing Indicates Ford Maverick Toy Replica On The Way

Ford Motor Company has filed a patent for a Ford Maverick toy replica, Ford Authority has learned.

The patent was filed on February 12th, 2021, published on October 18th, 2022, and assigned serial number D966942.

The Ford Authority Take

Many vehicles have been immortalized in toy form over the years, whether it be via a die-cast model or various other physical forms. As such, The Blue Oval has filed patents for some of its toy-based vehicles in recent years, including, most recently, the Ford Bronco Raptor. Now, hot on the heels of getting its own Lego MOC (My Own Collectible) template earlier this year, this new Ford patent has been filed for a Ford Maverick toy replica.

This patent is a fairly simple one, merely showing off a few images of what this Ford Maverick toy replica might look like, which in this case appears to be an XLT-trimmed pickup with that model’s standard 17-inch wheels. It’s unclear what sort of toy this patent might lead to – it could be a die-cast or something else entirely, but it leaves the whole spectrum of possibilities open for the automaker.

Such a toy would join a host of recently-released Blue Oval-based offerings, including a special limited-edition 1962 Ford F-100 unibody pickup from Hot Wheels, the 1967 Ford Mustang She Country Special, and the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, also a Hot Wheels limited edition.

Regardless, a toy version of the Ford Maverick should be easier to obtain than the real thing, which has faced tremendous demand that has far exceeded FoMoCo’s production capacity since the day it launched. In fact, many 2022 model year orders are being pushed to 2023, and order banks for the new model year closed after they were open for just a week due to high demand.

    Because Jimmy Car Car is now Jimmy Truck Truck.

    Comes with it’s own 1/24th Scale missing Blue Oval Emblems due to 1/24th Scale Supply Chain Issues……..

    I really hope I can get the full size maverick pickup that I ordered September 6th 2021 before the toy, but at this point anything from Ford other than more delays would be welcomed.

    This toy Maverick may be the only one you will ever get. I ordered mine over a year ago. Still no Maverick.
    Good luck!!!

    It will have some amazing mark up in price at the toy store……….LOL. Can see it now, moms fighting over the last two toy trucks in the store days before the holiday. But more will be on the way eventually. Some options will not be included on the toy due to chip shortages. Will the body decals come off when you wipe them? Must keep the vehicle authentic as possible, I guess.

      You will have to get on a waiting list or fight over the Toy Maverick at your local Walmart and Target. Shades of the Cabbage Patch dolls and Tickle Me Elmo. I can see these on Ebay selling for $500 a piece. I saw a video that Toyota is working on a compact hybrid pickup so hopefully some other manufacturers will get some compact pickups on the market.

    I finally got my f150 Lariat after seven months of waiting
