Tomica Series – No.78 SUBARU LEVORG

The Levorg is what was known as the Legacy. I always thought that this was a kind of Q-Car in that it offered great performance and practicality for not that much wonga. I do like this model – we have some very nice detail going on at the front and the back, and better still…

Tomica Series – No.105 SKYLINE

For all intents and purposes, I will always associate the Skyline with the 2 door version that has given us the R35. The name is iconic – to call it just a GT-R does the history a bit of an injustice. It is a shame that Nissan UK doe not offer a big Jap saloon…

Tomica Series – No.120 SUBARU BRZ

Smart. How to make the best of a casting. The BRZ by Subaru is a virtual copy of the GT86 by Toyota, so what better way to create two models from one casting. My musings are exactly the same for this casting as they were for the Tomica GT86. Not a fan of the silver…

Tomica Toys R Us Honda CR-Z Sports & Eco Program #5

I never thought about this long and hard, but the standard wheels on these Tomica models reminds me of the wheels some Lesney models used to wear – MB62 Renault 17TL is a good example: And madly enough this Tomica exclusive by TRU Asia just has that manner of resemblance to it. Again, I paid…

Tomica Series – No.109 VOLKSWAGEN POLO

You know, I am surprised by two things – Why hasn’t Majorette done a bog standard Polo Is this the direction that Tomica want to take with European additions? Having driven a Polo for around 4 years, I suppose I have a small soft spot for this one – I think that the highlight for…

Tomica Series – No. 97 – Toyota Town Ace

Very JDM  is this one. I don’t think you will see the Town Ace outside of Japan or APAC markets. The latest S400 series of LiteAce and TownAce van (S402M/S412M) and truck (S402U/S412U) was released to the market in Japan in February 2008. Now a badge engineered model, the S400 series derives from the Daihatsu…

Tomica Series – KR1 – Hyundai Sonata

I have to say that I do like domestic diecast – ironically, this Korean only model was grabbed in Singapore last year. Not a big amount of detailing on this model, but where I think it excels is the fact that this is a bog standard saloon that is relevant for the Korean market. You…
