Dickie Spielzeug of Furth, Bavaria, Germany aquired the Schuco brand name in 1993. They used their own name as well as the Simba Toys brand name to market diescast in America that were made by other companies in the Far East.

One line offered was the Dickie-Schuco line of 1:87 metal diecast. Consisting mostly of European vehicles and a commercial panel van not often found on American roads. Each of these have the HF prefixed # on their base, indicating the maker as High Speed. This was also noted on the packaging as well, with distribution made by Dickie-Schuco.

Playart imported castings for Dickie's "Super Fast Wheels" line.
