Get a couple more so you can make a box fort.
Yet another Connect Car I decided to get recently. Although my brother already has it, I still wanted one for myself because it looks soooo good!
I still hope they'll make an Evo IV of a more interesting color, like blue or green. But since they go straight to the V, maybe the Evo VI TME is not unreasonable?
Awesome model with an equally attractive color:
You can say that again. I'm almost being dragged back in thanks to that yellow.
Thank you Colorado.
That looks like it's going to be worth good dough in half a decade.
Livery, star wheels (that are also white), "Nissan".... the perfect ingredients for high asking prices.
Finally found the Eclipse at a Target
also completed the H case too also at a different Target
Caught up with premium cars except for the blue Datsun team transport.
Here's two more.
Also, peg warmers here:
The Gulf Chevy is still a peg warmer here.
Any other recommendation on Tomica Premiums?
Just ordered two via a US seller on eBay. One to open and one to keep carded. Received an HKS camo tee from my girlfriend today (by Dirty Nails, Bloody Knuckles) so it was nice timing to find them on sale for only £11 each with £7 shipping, which is very reasonable from the US.
Evo V, Evo VI, Pajero, Civic EF, possibly R32 GTR, FC3S and Integra at the bottom on the first picture
They're all good, I've got most of them now.
Only ones I've passed on are the caddy (not my thing), 86GRMN (looked more like a mainline Tomica than a premium), S2000 (not my particularly favourite version of the car), the VW van, Countach and Lotus (didn't really fancy them) and all the random things like tanks, jets, space craft etc
But all the old school JDM stuff is good. I'm also looking forward to the Diablo, because pop ups!
Looks like a 4-door R32, judging by the wing and wheels it'll be some some sort of GTSt Type-M, or perhaps the Autech. I kinda like that tomica has avoided the (2-door) GT-R's in favour of the lesser know versions.
Either way they have my interest...
I think those were in the new TLV book as well. I’ve seen them all somewhere because I remember the Nissan pickup is 1/43
The body looks wide like the GTR version, but it also looks like it has 4 door.
I think it's just the lighting, it doesn't look too wide in my eyes, looks very close to this:
Haven't bought a Premium in ages but the Porsche would get my vote if you don't already have it.
Ah, damnit. I would have been all over that if it was a regular 1/64 release.
Finally found this gem.
I was hoping for a GTR , doesn't make sense they release a lot of R35 GTR and Nismo but never the GTR version of the predecessors (except for the 4 door Hakosuka).
Carrera RS? Interesting.
They already did the R33 GT-R 4-door, which is the only other GT-R with more than 2 doors. In general, they tried to stay away from cars that had already been released in lower-level Tomica ranges, which eliminated a lot of stereotypical JDM like the R32 GT-R. That policy seems to be gradually changing as they realize that those models = $$cash$$
But one of their early release is the Nismo GTR which was also released in lower level ranges.
I do hope they release the R32 GTR someday. At least it's gonna be cheaper than old releases from Kyosho and Tamiya. People have been selling R32 GTR from other brands with quite ridiculous prices.
The real GT-R Nismo came out in 2014, by which time TLV had been around for 10 years.
Yikes I did not know that.
IMO the defining factor of their catalogue is the availability of fully stock vehicles for scanning. They probably need to go to some collection owner and ask them to allow to scan their car. The GT-Rs owned by regular people who actually drive them are pretty much all modified (keep in mind that even wheels and ride height have to be stock for a TLV prototype car).
We are very lucky to have had gotten the RX-7, especially Type RZ, and all these new Evos.
However, with the Nismo Heritage parts program, more GT-R s might get restored and hopefully some might end up on the TLV scanning shed
They have access to Zama, as evidenced by all the silhouette racers they released in the past. Plenty of stock GT-R’s in there, but nothing yet.
There are so many completely stock examples in dealerships around Japan. They're what are worth the real money.
