News : Tomica Gozen Collection

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.
