News : Tomica Kuji #22 Fire Fighters Collection

Emergency services have been heavily represented in Tomica toys for a long time especially police and fire departments, always popular with kids. After countless classic red fire department vehicles TakaraTomy is trying something new and original with this 22nd Kuji collection.

This time the cars will carry the colors of fire fighters uniforms from different groups of the Tokyo Metropolitan Fire Department.

Fire Rescue Task Force

Hitachi CM Astaco; Daihatsu Copen; Toyota FJ Cruiser; Nissan GT-R; Lamborghini Murcielago.


The Fire Rescue Task Force was created after the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake in 1995. The members specialize in disaster rescue with heavy machinery and extrication equipment.

Command Team

Toyota 2000GT; Lotus Exige S; Daihatsu Midget.

Just like you would expect from the Command Team, their role is to assess the situation and decide the best course of action.


Daihatsu Cast; Jeep Wrangler; Subaru WRX S4.

The Paramedics make sure to treat the injured on site and to organize their transport to another point of care.

A-one Fire Unit

Toyota Sienta; Toyota Crown; Suzuki Hustler; UD Trucks Quon Tank Lorry.

The A-one Fire unit are experts in dealing with extreme fires of highly flammable materials (oil, tires) or in confined space (subway, factories). They use top of the line equipment.

Ladder Corps

Suzuki Escudo; Nissan Fairlady Z; Mitsubishi Triton; Toyota Voxy.

The Ladder Corps has the difficult task to reach fires in high locations such as tall buildings. Ladder trucks operators in particular need to quickly put their vehicle in the right position for the fire fighters to be able to intervene in the smallest amount of time possible.

Volunteer Fire Corps

Mercedes-Benz Unimog.

The Fire Brigades are composed of part-time fire fighters and volunteers in small or remote locations that do not have a proper Fire Department nearby. They are trained to deal with many situations such as fires, floods and rescues and have the tough task to handle major events until better equipped professionals arrive.

This collection is definitely a smart and fun way to teach the different roles and careers opportunities in fire departments to the young generation. And we get cool looking Tomicas on top of that !

The 22nd Kuji Fire Fighters Collection will be released on March 17th in Japan.

News : Tomica Kuji #20

We have more details about the theme of the next Tomica Kuji (blind-boxes) collection coming in March.

What if all companies or organizations used sports cars for their daily activities? Tomica applied this idea to the fictional city of Utsuro. Catch a taxi ride in a Lamborghini Murcielago or learn to drive in a Toyota 2000GT while the newspaper is delivered by a Lotus Exige.
