After last year’s quite popular (and awfully distributed) Bushou Collection, bringing the most famous Japanese warlords to the Tomica world, Tohan and TakaraTomy are ready to introduce a very similar collection for 2017.
Influent historical women from the Sengoku period are the theme of the Gozen Collection. As with the Bushou collection, a new car will be released every two months exclusively through Tohan’s selected book stores.
The first car comes with a collection box with six slots that allows to store or display the entire collection neatly.
January : Ii Naotora (Tommykaira ZZ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ii_Naotora
March : Oichinokata (Nissan Cima) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oichi
May : Nene (Nissan Fairlady Z) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nene_(aristocrat)
July : Yodo-dono (Nissan Skyline) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yodo-dono
September : Oeyo (Toyota Crown) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oeyo
November : Hosokawa Garasha (Daihatsu Copen) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosokawa_Gracia
Let’s hope that the distribution is better handled this time to allow more people to complete their collection without having to hunt them down on the after market.
Happy New Year !
Let’s celebrate with a gallery of the New Year’s Tomica blind boxes collection : the Mukashi Banashi, that can be translated by Ancient Legends.
This set is inspired by old Japanese stories about heroes fighting an evil demon.
Oni (Hummer H2) : the Demon
Inu (Daihatsu Copen) : the Dog
Saru (Honda N-One) : the Monkey
Issun-bôshi (Honda S660) : the Inch-High Samurai
Kiji (Honda VFR) : The Pheasant
Hime (Subaru 360) : the Princess
Kintarô (Suzuki Hustler) : the Golden Boy
Momotarô (Toyota IQ) : the Peach Boy
