Gallery : F-Toys Japanese Car Selection Vol.2

The first series of the new Japanese Car Selection from F-Toys was a nice surprise and I was looking forward the next series. It is finally available and once again the plastic models are quite nice for such a low retail price.

News : Second Tomica Premium Exclusive

Back to the news after a little break due to the floods in Japan.

After the yellow VW Type 2 Pickup last month TakaraTomy is ready to launch a new Tomica Premium online exclusive in October : the Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II Nur.

This time it is not just a repaint. The wheels, bonnet, front bumper and lip as well as the side skirt and the exhaust pipe are different from the TP-01 GT-R Z-tune.

The GT-R was the most popular car at the launch of the Tomica Premium line and the first to be sold out. Without a doubt this new exclusive edition will be a success and TakaraTomy already set up a limit of 3 per customer.
