Gallery : Tomica July 2016 releases

A lot of releases in July and a new record for the fastest selling Tomica in Tokyo. The new Honda Civic was sold out in a couple of hours. Consider yourself lucky if you managed to secure the black first release limited version. The white version should be re-released soon but the black version is definitively gone and already sells at a high price on the after market.

News : Tomica Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

Collecting Tomica models can be very difficult and TakaraTomy seems to like it that way. Another very hard to get not for sale Tomica will be this stunning Lamborghini Veneno Roadster.

tomica_6thankyou_B2h_v2_ol

Same lottery system than for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Dubai Police and Toyota FJ Cruiser Mexico Tourist Police : from June 20th to September 30th anyone living in Japan will be able to send 5 Tomica Marks to TakaraTomy to enter the lottery.

10 000 winners will be drawn at random and will receive in December this very nice Veneno Roadster.

Once again we will try our luck !

News : Tomica Exclusives in January recap

2015 will certainly be a busy year for TakaraTomy. New lines like the Tomica Star Wars and the Tomica Concept are underway, and on top of the always expanding Regular series many exclusives models are scheduled, starting as soon as January 1st. Here is a quick recap of what is coming.

Retailer Exclusives :

Aeon, Apita and Toys R Us stores will all have they own exclusive on shelves on January 1st.

1501-aeon

18th model in the Aeon’s Tuning Car Series, the Toyota 2000GT Speed Trial Edition is famous for setting many speed records in Japan in 1966. This car has already been seen in Tomica form before (in the Museum or Limited series) but this is the first time it is fitted with those wheels.

1501-api

Apita keeps adding 2000GTs to its World Flag Collection. The 11th model is a new version of the Japanese flag that looks actually more like a New Year edition than a proper flag, with gold paint and turtles.

1501-trucalgtr

Toys R Us exclusives follow a simple pattern : a racing car and its dedicated transporter truck. After the Subaru Rally Team and RalliArt, the Calsonic Team Impul GT-R will join the recently released Calsonic Team Impul Transporter.

1501-ts-pol

A few months ago the Tomica Shop exclusives were just bright red and white models with a big ‘Tomica Shop’ logo on it, making them very appealing to kids. Now the new Tomica Shop Awards series is aiming at collectors. An alternate color (doesn’t have to be red anymore) and the ‘Tomica Shop’ logo is much more dicreet. After the ultra-popular gold Aventador and black Escalade, this Toyota Corolla Fielder will be for the first time available in Japanese Police colors. It is also rumoured that the Not For Sale Tomica Shop exclusives (only obtainable with Tomica Points) usually blue with a big ‘Tomica Shop’ logo will change in the same fashion, and that the next car offered will be the Nissan Leaf Patrol Car.

Event Exclusive :

1501-86mystyle

Tomica will be at the Auto Salon 2015 in Tokyo and will bring a very nice exclusive Toyota 86. This version is the replica of a real 86 tuned by My Style. After the yellow Fuji 86, no doubt TakaraTomy realized that the 86 was the model of choice for car tuning related events.

Campaign Exclusives :

TakaraTomy regularly runs special offers and campaigns for its customers. The “DoDoDo!” campaign is a raffle opened to anyone in Japan who send 5 Tomica Marks (found on every Tomica products) before the deadline. 10 000 lucky winners will get a free exclusive (and usually very cool) Tomica. This time there is not one but two models to chose from !

1501-dddsls

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Dubai Police version would look great next to the similar Nissan GT-R that was the gift of the last campaign.

1501-dddcrui

Even more obscure is this FJ Cruiser from the Mexican Tourist Police force.

The campaign will be open from January 1st to March 31st, and delivery to the winners should start in April.

Special Order Exclusive :

HT_P1.P8_Vol22_ol

Finally, Snap-On will close the preorders for its exclusive Dijon GT-R on January 15th (or before if the 6000 scheduled units are sold quicker). Delivery is expected to start in March. Update : preorders are closed already.

All those exclusives are proof that TakaraTomy is healthier than ever and Tomica collectors can expect many great things in 2015 !

Third Rally themed exclusive Tomica from Toys R Us stores in Japan, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Ralliart is pretty cool.

TRU_MIT_LAN_SLV_00

TakaraTomy is currently running a special campaign with a possibility to win an exclusive not for sale Nissan Leaf Police Car through selected retailers.
