A week ago we featured our first Tomica models, the matching silver and red Toyota 86’s. I am a huge fan of the car in either its Toyota (Scion) clothes, or its Subaru duds. (And for those of you interested, the first comparison of the two cars that I know of went up today.)
Nonetheless, I am enamored with this car, and will do just about anything to get my hands on diecast examples. Pretty soon, we will profile Kyosho’s version of the 86, and tonight we present the extremely limited Tomica version in black done exclusively for Japanese Toyota dealers.
Of the three Tomica colors of the 86 so far, the black is my favorite for two reasons. One, the box that it came is pretty darn cool. And two, it looks the sportiest in black. We have the silver and red versions to show off the lines and details of the casting, and the black to just take those lines and make them look a little more menacing.
Where to find this model? I had to navigate Yahoo Auctions Japan, which is not easy for someone who does not read Japanese. But the red and silver versions are readily available on ebay. Daboxtoys is currently sold out, but I am sure more will come in at some point.
