|Tomica Limited Vintage Neo Nissan GT-R Nismo at Japan Booster|
A year ago, the collection was zero. Now it is six.
To say this has been a good year for Tomica Limited Vintage would be an understatement. They continued to do what they do best, creating some amazing classic Japanese cars like the Toyota Crown Wagon and C210 Skyline. Beautifully done, replicated as stock.
But they branched out a bit too. The Nissan IDX concepts from last year were TLV’s first foray into contemporary cars, and while the IDX is now history, the models were fantastic. The success with those cars must have opened the gates for more, because 2015 at TLV was all about the Nissan GT-R.
And not just any GT-R, but the VERY current GT-R Nismo, with its massive spoiler and wonderful red trim. Until these were released, Nissan GT-R’s in 1:64 had been a disappointment. Hot Wheels, Tomica, Real Toy, even Kyosho hadn’t been able to duplicate the lines and stance of the GT-R. Tomica Limited Vintage, thankfully but not surprisingly, nailed it.
And that started with the Nismo in March, and then the Nismo N-Attack (N meaning Nurburgring) in April. Now TLV is back with two more N-Attacks, one in black and the other in the very unique Time-Attack livery.
I was already excited about the two Nismo GT-R’s once I knew they were coming from Japan Booster, but actually seeing one in person the very day the package arrived added even further proof that this model is a must-have:
