|TLV Porsche at Japan Booster|
This is the truest Porsche Party you can have in 1/64. Heaven knows there have been plenty of 1/64 Porsche parties lately. Hot Wheels is on a massive Porsche kick. So are many other brands. And we are just gobbling them up. As well we should be, as there have been crazy good releases.
Before this tidal wave hit, the most signature of all Porsches were already out there in 1/64 were already out there. Several years ago Tomica Limited Vintage released a stunning series of Porsche 911 and 912 replicas. Four 911S models with the side deco and fuch wheels, two early 912 and 911 models with dish hubs, and two Japanese Police models.
And as the Porsche surge has hit our world, these have become more and more sought-after, to the point that they are very difficult to come across.
Thankfully TLV is bringing the Porsche back. Next month it will release another 911S in blue, and a 911 in a special 50th Anniversary deco. Japan Booster has them available for preorder along with the rest of the loaded April release.
It is a welcome return for the Porsche, and while I have no idea, I have to think we might see a couple more in the coming months as well. But there will be many collectors will discover how beautiful these are. Bone stock, highly detailed, pure TLV.
In anticipation of these two, I decided to photograph all nine of the TLV 911/912 models. Japan Booster also decided to make all nine available this week as well:
I can’t decide on which mini TLV collection I like the most. The Porsches are up there. They are easily my favorite 1/64 Porsches in the collection.
