News : ChoroQ Returns

It’s been a while since TakaraTomy dropped the ChoroQ license. The last release from the toy company was the ChoroQ Hybrid line in 2010. In 2011 Tomytec got the licence to produce high-detailed ChoroQ cars, called ChoroQ Zero, aimed at collectors.

Next month TakaraTomy will finally relaunch the traditionnal Choro Q line with a mix of japanese, foreign, old and new cars.
