Gallery : Tomica July releases

Update : pictures of the Apita, Toys R Us and TakaraTomy Mall exclusives added.

Heavy month for Tomica collectors with plenty of releases ! We are introducing a new layout with slideshows and links to relevant videos. Hope you like it, let us know on Facebook !

 

#38 Toyota AutoBody COMS

The COMS is a compact electric vehicle used mainly for small deliveries. The bay at the back can be fitted with different types of containers (small, large, refrigerated, etc). COMS Japanese infomercial (Youtube).

The Tomica version is designed with this in mind and the container is a separate part attached to the body. The door opens, unfortunately there is no space to put anything inside. A Seven Eleven version will be available at Seven Eleven stores in Japan later this year.

 

#112 Subaru WRX STI Type S

The WRX STI Type S is the sport version of the WRX with basically more power and more grip. Definitively a fine looking machine. Subaru WRX STI video (Youtube).

The Tomica standard version features the classic WR Blue Pearl color while the first release limited edition is painted Crystal Black Silica. Just like the recent Subaru Levorg, the bonnet opens.

 

Dream Tomica #148 Galax-Z

This modified version of the Tommykaira ZZ appeared in the anime Gatchaman Crowds Insight. An actual promotional car has been built and is on display at various anime events. Anime Japan 2015 clip (Youtube).

The ZZ looks much better with that paint scheme than with the plain red or yellow from the regular line.

 

Dream Tomica #149 My Sweet Piano

Another Sanrio character from the MyMelody universe. Sanrio video (Youtube).

Not much to say about the Dream Tomica, you like it or you don’t.

 

Tomica Premium #07 Volkswagen Type 2

The good old Kombi never ages ! Original commercials compilation (Youtube).

Very fine replica from Tomica, this car looks really good. One of the best Premium so far.

 

Tomica Premium #08 Lexus RC F GT500

Currently 6 teams are running the Super GT500 championship in Lexus RC F but the Premium is the white Lexus Racing test car version. Toyota MotorSport RC F movie (Youtube).

The overall is good, but the wing is disappointing for a Premium model that is supposed to be more detailled and accurate than regular Tomica models. It doesn’t show on the picture but the center of the wing arms is filled with transparent plastic. Let’s hope that Tomica will do the more colorful Eneos, Tom’s, Advan or Denso versions.

 

Disney Motors DM-18 Worm’n Pooh Bear

Cute bee decoration and honey jar on the top. Classic Winnie.

 

Disney Motors Good Day Carry Toy Story 20th Anniversary

The roof of the truck looks like a box lid, well done ! Unfortunately it doesn’t open.

 

Tomica Star Wars #07 Darth Vader Tie

A nice addition to the Star Wars line with the iconic Tie piloted by Darth Vador himself. Must look awesome with an escort of Tie Fighters !

 

Tomica Star Cars wave 1

The “Star Wars Dream Tomica” line is finally available. You can check our previous gallery or the slideshow below.

 

Tomica Shop Lamborghini Veneno

After the ultra popular gold Aventador, this new exclusive Lamborghini is once again a huge success.

 

Tomica Shop Disney Motors Dream Star Classic Special 39 Mickey Mouse

Second “Special Thank You” car in the Tomica Shop Disney Motors exclusives.

Otomodachi Gold Shovel

Otomodachi Gold is a magazine for children filled with games and stickers about their favourite topics. The July 2015 issue comes with a special Tomica Shovel.

 

Aeon Tuning Cars Series #21 Mitsuoka Orochi Kabuto version.

This ‘armored’ version (Kabuto is the helmet of the samurai armor) was released in 2009 and features a carbon fiber bonnet. Only 5 Orochi Kabuto were ever produced.

The gold version of the Orochi Kabuto has already been released in the Toy’s Dream Project collection.

 

Pokemon With You Wagon 2nd edition

Seven Eleven stores in Japan are running a Pokemon campaign and some of them have a few Pokemon With You Wagon new edition.

This Hiace Tomica is based on an actual mobile playground that drives around the Tôhoku region Pokemon With You website.

 

Dealer Edition Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

This box variant of the Evo X is available in very limited quantities and for a very short time at the Mitsubishi Showroom in Tokyo. The car itself is the same as the regular edition.

This special edition was originaly not for sale and given away to Mitsubishi shareholders (hence no barcode).

 

Apita Toyota 2000GT Sweden Flag

Fourteenth release in the World Flag Collection.

The next Apita 2000GT will be the Malaysia version.

 

Toys R Us Nissan N-Force Mobile Headquarter

As usual the transporter truck will be followed by a car fom the same manufacturer. Which Nissan car do you think it will be?

 

TakaraTomy Mall Tomica Premium VW Type 2 Pickup

First exclusive in the Tomica Premium line.

The same model in green will join the regular Premium line later this year.
