We just got an email from Japan Booster letting us know that the September releases from Tomica Limted Vintage are now available. There are two existing castings in new decos (Hino Car Transporter and Diahatsu Midget), as well as a brand new casting in three different colors.
It is that new casting that we have been waiting a long time to be released. We have said for awhile that we would love to see Tomica Limited Vintage tackle some classic Italian cars, and with the Isuzu 117 Coupe, they essentially have.
The 117 was designed by famous Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, who is also responsible for the BMW M1 and Lotus Esprit, both iconic in their own right. And like those two, the 117 is a complete looker.
But we will get more into that when we get the models in hand. For now, two colors and a special Radio Livery model are available at Japan Booster. You can find them here:
As always, Japan Booster offers free shipping on all TLV orders over $50, so you can grab all three and get them shipped for free. Or add any other TLV if you would like. And keep in mind the best time to buy a TLV is right when they are released. Prices tend to start increasing right away, so grab these now.
We mentioned two other released, including the Hino 5-Car Transporter. We ordered one ourselves, because we have heard it is a fantastic model, with moving parts and tons of detail. The transporter is very expensive, but worth it. You can find it here:
TLV-NEO HINO HE366 CAR TRANSPORTER
We are very much looking forward to getting all three, as well as the Transporter, as part of our next order from Japan Booster. You can be assured all will get the Lamley photo treatment…
