For some reason the Matchbox version of the WRX just looks at little cartoonish to me…….the proportions don’t look right. I am glad to see this as an inclusion, but could they have done a better job?
However, where Tomica comes into its own is by producing properly proportioned cars to a scale and that is what we have here. Front and rear are done nicely, throw in an opening bonnet, job done. And it is a JDM, which gives it more of a sense of want. Everyone can have a standard WRX, but what about the sense of mystery that surrounds a Type S?!
Decent casting especially as it wears racing wheels as opposed to the standard Tomica ones.
