Gallery : Mazda Dealership 1/64 Gift Set

Thanks to informations from Eric we were able to put our hands on the 1/64 gift set from Mazda quite quickly.

OVE-MAZGIFTSET-00

This set was on presale at the Tokyo Motor Show and will certainly hit the Mazda dealerships after the test drive campaign is over. The Axela, Atenza and Demio previously released by Oversteer are already sold at Mazda dealerships as official merchandise.

OVE-MAZATE-RED-01 OVE-MAZATE-RED-02

OVE-MAZAXE-RED-01 OVE-MAZAXE-RED-02

OVE-MAZCX3-RED-01 OVE-MAZCX3-RED-02

OVE-MAZCX5-RED-01 OVE-MAZCX5-RED-02

OVE-MAZDEM-RED-01 OVE-MAZDEM-RED-02

OVE-MAZROA-RED-01 OVE-MAZROA-RED-02

Produced by Mazda, the name Oversteer in not mentionned anywhere on the box or the model, but those are definitively coming from the same factory. I guess we can call them “Oversteer OEM”.

And just like every Oversteer model released so far, those cars are amazingly detailed and accurate. They look ever better in hand than in pictures. Really impressive job.

Here are two shots of the Oversteer Azela sport and the Mazda Dealership version side by side. As you can see they are exactly the same.

We love this set and can’t wait to see more colors for the cars. Personnaly looking forward a white Roadster !

gift-prize-figure3 gift-prize-figure4

gift-prize-figure5 gift-prize-figure6

Although we could not confirm it yet, it seems like those models are from Oversteer. In any case they are highly detailed and attractive.

This gift set is unfortunately not for sale but the cars are likely to be individually available at Mazda dealerships in 2016. More information as soon as possible.

 

News : SunKus x F-Toys GT-R collection

While we are waiting for Kyosho to reveal their next SunKus collection (rumoured to be McLaren), Circle K just announced that they will release an exclusive 1/64 collection in SunKus stores from F-Toys in January 2016. In the same fashion as with the past Kyosho collections, this Super GT500 GT-R collection will have an online exclusive car as well.

The online exclusive will be the 2014 Motul Autech GT-R that paraded at the Nismo Festival (the only differences are the number and a sign on the rear window).

Kyosho already stated that “things will change” with their SunKus collections in 2016 and this new partnership between SunKus and F-Toys might be the first step in that direction. While we are waiting for more informations (that should arrive in December), we can speculate about the future of Kyosho’s SunKus collections. Re-runs of old series? F-Toys and Kyosho series in alternance? Change to lottery system? Or not much change at all? We’ll wait and see.
