I am sure that I start to sound redundant at the mid-point of every month, when Tomica Limited Vintage releases its latest batch. I get excited, deplore you to grab a couple of the latest models, ensuring you that you won’t be disappointed.
And it happens every month, right after we get the heads up from Japan Booster.
But I can’t help it. It seems every month, right on schedule, TLV releases another batch of must-haves. If it isn’t the GT-R Nismo, it is the MKIII Toyota Supra, or a Toyota Century. And it won’t stop anytime soon, with more GT-R’s, Toyota Crown Wagons, BMW E30 Police, and Alfa Romeos coming. If you aren’t used to me ogling over the new releases by now, you had better start.
And July is no exception. You can see the new releases at Japan Booster (and remember, Free Shipping for all orders over $50):
This batch is loaded, and not just for the likes of dedicated TLV collectors like me, but for worldwide JDM fans in general. This marks the debut of the Datsun 510 2-door sedan.
TLV has done several versions of the 4-door, but fans have clamored for the 2-door, which are the more popular among the j-tin set today. Think BRE. Think JCCS. Hell, think Hot Wheels. It’s the 2-door. That makes these two TLV’s must-haves for many of you.
Add to that another DR30 Skyline from the Seibu Keisatsu Series. This one is slightly different than the first three, in that is had no A- and C-pillar spoilers, and with the gold-lace wheels makes one beautiful model, similar to what you might see at a car show today (Jay, I am looking at you!).
On top of those goodies, a Toyota Celica Police from the Neo Taiyo Series, and 3 (three!) new versions of the purely Japanese Nissan Be-1.
See, an amazing batch. The most amazing until, well, next month.
