Launched in 2011, the Aeon Tuning Car Series has been going on with a new model released exclusively at Aeon stores appromatively every 2 months. Last month marked the 25th car of a very nice collection including some of the most sought after Tomica variants.
I discovered the collection in 2013, and it took me time to find all the 2011 and 2012 releases I missed. Then it proved quite difficult to get the new releases, Aeon being the only Tomica retailer still not selling online. Having to take a 2 hours round trip to the nearest Aeon mall, often to find out that the car was already sold out, was not the most enticing collecting experience and I had to resort to Yahoo Auctions many times.
Now is time for me to part with most of my Tomica collections, and this Aeon Tuning Car Series is going to eBay to find a new home. The starting price may seem high but that’s less than half the market value, and EMS shipping is included.
All the cars are in excellent condition, as far I can tell none has any defect (they were not on display and kept in storage, no dust or fingerprints). The state of the boxes vary : most are in very good condition (with regular shelf wear), and I highlighted the noticeable marks on some of them.
