Models: Tomica Limited Vintage Neo Mazda 787b and Nissan Atlas F24 Safety Loader
Where to get them: Both are available now at Japan Booster
Why they are in the collection: These models couldn’t be more different, in most ways at least. But they do share some important factors. both come from the same brand, both are impeccably done by TLV, and both crazy popular.
Here is the funny thing about that last point. Their credentials for becoming so popular among collectors? One is a replica of the only Japanese car to win 24 Hours of Le Mans, which makes it one of the most well-known race cars ever. The other hauls cars from one place to another.
Their credentials aside, they are just killer models. Both prime examples of why TLV is the best quality 1/64 brand by a mile. The detail is there for both, but it goes beyond that. The 787b has two removable pieces, revealing the cars innards, while the Atlas has a full functioning bed.
Which makes both no-brainers for any collection, even for those who don’t collect TLV. Having a replica of the 787b needs no explanation. The car is a legend. The Atlas makes collectors giddy just thinking about all the cool cars they can put on its bed.
I chose a couple of great TLV race cars.
And speaking of great TLV Race Cars, the 787b joins the Super Silhouettes in TLV’s fleet of 80’s and 90’s Japanese race cars.
I think I have made a good enough argument for these two.
