I really don’t care if there are too many GT-R’s in 1:64. I have yet to get sick of them. I certainly don’t collect all of them. In fact, I don’t have very many. I have all the Hot Wheels releases, some Kyosho (not all), and all from Tomica Limited Vintage. There are a lot I don’t have.
And I don’t feel like I need anymore. Tomica Limited Vintage definitely scratches any GT-R itch. From Nismo to N-Attack to Nurburgring, there are quite a few. 11 in fact.
And now 12 and 13 are here, and they are TLV’s first 2017 GT-R releases. And 14 and 15 are on their way next month. They just keep coming. And I will keep collecting them.
I am really happy to have the 2017 in hand. It arrived a couple of days ago from Japan Booster as part of the May 2017 release. And like all TLV GT-R’s, it is a beautiful replica. Especially the release in signature metallic orange.
TLV works to get as detailed as possible in 1:64. Hence the brake calipers that stay put while the wheel rolls. Or the two-tone interior. Or the subtly difference in color on the wheels spokes. They even worked to duplicate the tread of the tires, which actually in 1:64 makes them look more meaty than they need to, although it isn’t as apparent in person, and only when you sit it next to older TLV GT-R’s.
But on its own, this is a stunner. Both colors look nice, but the orange. Wow. It is going to take a lot for me to sick of these. I challenge TLV to keep trying.
