Retail price for regular Tomica is up 90 yen (+25%)

To “celebrate” the price increase, TakaraTomy produced a special edition of the Nissan GT-R Dubai Police version.
Limited to 20 000, this exclusive edition will be available through a raffle. From February 1st to March 31st, anyone who sends in 5 proof of purchase to TakaraTomy will be entered in the raffle. This campaign is, of course, offered to Japan residents only.
Other than that, not much activity in February. Only two new models : The Lotus Exige R-GT (replacing #10 Subaru Sambar Van) and the Toyota Crown Athlete (replacing #92 Toyota Ractis).
The Lotus Exige R-GT regular edition livery is inspired from the Geko Ypres Rallye 2012. The limited edition is inspired from the Turin Test Car 2011
The Crown Athlete is the Pink Edition, on display at the Toyota booth at the Tokyo Motor Show 2013.
The Tomica Shop exclusive model for February is the second version of the Tomica Shop Transporter.
