The Tomica Limited Vintage July assortment is out, and its looking right at you, Skyline fans.
There is a lot to be excited about in this batch, including the second Mazda Cosmo released to celebrate its 50th Anniversary, this time in police livery. Or the lesser-known 1/43 scale TLV’s, this time in the form of a Nissan Cedric Gran Turismo in two colors. You can see them all at Japan Booster:

But this batch is really all about the Skylines. Two more Hakosuka Skylines – that makes 7 total of this newer casting – and the smile-inducing R33 GT-R Autech 40th Anniversary Edition.
The R33 hasn’t gotten a ton of love in 1/64, especially outside of Japan, but that is quickly changing with Kyosho doing the 400R, Hot Wheels unveiling theirs, and now TLV releasing the GT-R Autech.
And remember, this is TLV. They aren’t just going to do an R33 GT-R. Look closely. It’s a 4-door. The 4-door Autech was created to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Skyline, and it is truly unique among the family of GT-R’s. Most importantly, TLV’s replica appears to be spot on.
I have no idea if a police GT-R Autech was ever made, but I am happy to see it here. The pair is truly a must-have, especially if you are a Skyline collector, and there is a nice fat gap where all the R33’s should be.
I will showcase these as soon as I get them. For now, go grab one, or all, for yourself.

The R33 GTR Police version is an actual vehicle used in Kanagawa Prefecture.
