Gallery : Tokyo Auto Salon 2016 Tomica Exclusives

Tomica salon exclusives are more and more difficult to get. At the Tokyo Motor Show in October, visitors were allowed to purchase only two pieces of the Tomica Premium Nissan ID-S and Toyota SF-R. This time at the Auto Salon visitors were limited to only one piece of the exclusives Tomica ! As a result many Japanese collectors who could not attend the venue and required the help of a friend to get the cars have now no choice but hunting them on Yahoo Auctions. And when the demand largely exceeds the offer, prices are escalating.

We managed to get hold of the two Auto Salon exclusives, so you can take a good look at them before emptying your wallet.

Tomica Premium Nismo R34 GT-R Z-tune Proto.


This car is exactly the same as the Premium #01 Nismo R34 GT-R Z-tune, with a new decoration.

Dream Tomica Initial D Takahashi Brothers Set


This set includes the RX-7 FC3S and the RX-7 FD3S Project D Version. These cars will get a regular release in March.

 

 

Gallery : Kyosho 1/64 Initial D Minicar Collection

The sets of the Kyosho 1/64 Initial D Collection arrived right on time. We started shipping the sets already reserved.

We do not plan to get more but we can probably help if you missed the reservations. Just send an email to 829japan@gmail.com for informations.

The packaging is quite large, revealing the 4 regular sized boxes.

Toyota 86 (High-tech two tone)

Mazda RX-7 FD3S

As you can see the cars are well done and detailed, with accurate licence plates and decals. Even the mirrors are painted this time, something Kyosho was not doing anymore !

 

 

Gallery : Tomytec 1/64 January 2016 releases

Take a look at the new Tomytec releases. The Century is massive compared to the tiny Alfa Romeo, and the Prairie is a very good surprise.

The cars come with a card and unassembled, in pure Kyosho fashion.
