News : Tomytec 1/64 Nissan IDx update

AmiAmi published new pictures of the Tomytec IDx Freeflow and IDx Nismo, as well as new informations.

TLVIDX4

The two cars will be released later this year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Tomica Limited Vintage line. Strangely, the Tokyo Motor Show 2013 Concept cars 1/64 scale replicas will be part of the TLV Neo line, and crush all dreams of Tomytec launching a new modern cars line.

The IDx Freeflow will be released in May 2014 for 2300 yen.

TOY-SCL2-27552

The IDx Nismo will follow in June for 2500 yen.

Both cars feature now a detailed interior, as it was expected from Tomytec.

News : 1/64 Tomytec Nissan IDx to be released in 2014

According to a message on Amiblo, Tomytec is planning to release the IDx Freeflow and IDx Nismo in June 2014.

TLVIDX0

The 1/64 prototype by Tomytec on display during the Tokyo Motor Show 2013, along the 1/43 version by Ebbro and the 1/10 RC version by ABC Hobby, was (at the time) not scheduled for commercialization. The number of preorders of the 1/43 Ebbro may have convinced the Tomica Limited Vintage maker to give contemporary cars a try.

TLVIDX

We do not yet know if the cars will be released individually or in a two car set. Nor do we know if it will be a Nissan dealer exclusive or a one-shot not related to the Tomica Limited Vintage line. Or perhaps the first model of a new line? The last possibility would have a huge impact on the high-end 1/64 scale market and would give Kyosho/Circle K some serious competition.

Here are some pictures taken at the Tokyo Motor Show 2013.

These three Karuwaza exclusives are a demonstration of what Kyosho is able to do at 1/64 scale.

The LaFerrari set is a special edition celebrating 10 years of partnership between Circle K SunKus and Kyosho. The set contains two LaFerrari in Metalic Red and Matte Black. They are identical to the Ferrari 9 edition except for the red seats and painted mirrors.

The Calsonic GT-R #12 2012 is limited to 1008 pieces. As a bonus, I added pictures of the Calsonic GT-R #12 2002 from the Beads series released in 2005.

Pictures of the 24 models (not assembled). All Ferrari 1/64 scale by Kyosho are actually semi-assembly kits. It’s a little trick to circumvent the fact that Mattel owns the exclusive license to make diecast Ferrari models.
