I have touted Tomica Limited Vintage for awhile now, and I promise that won’t stop. Quality-wise it remains the best 1/64 brand out by a mile, and I don’t see any competitors.
Every month, TLV releases a new batch, sometimes with great fanfare – think Super Silhouettes or other vintage racing cars – and other times quietly. And many of you have hopped on the bandwagon. You might not pursue everything, but you at least have your thing. Maybe a particular carmaker, or era, or car type, or whatever. Whatever it is a particular collector pursues, there is rarely disappointment.
But as fun as collecting TLV can be, it is next level when it comes to TLV trucks. Remember, Tomica Limited Vintage sticks strictly to scale. So when they do a city bus or a full-sized hauler, they do it in scale. That means some models can be massive.
And the next massive must-have is coming. TLV announced its May 2018 lineup, and in it is the mind-blowing Hino HE366 Wing Roof Trailer. It’s large, it’s detailed, and yes, it’s expensive. But like the other massive TLV trucks, it is totally worth it. And it is now available to reserve at Japan Booster:
The collector in you just wants it. The kid in you just wants to play with it. It’s insanely cool.
And I promise, as pricey as it is, this is the time to get one if you want it. Prices on models like these skyrocket. We have seen it with the other 5-car Hino Haulers TLV has done, as well as the Nissan Atlas Safety Loaders. These are scooped up in Japan, and become difficult to get almost immediately.
And don’t ignore the other models coming in May. Two Skyline sedans and two Isuzu Bellets. Have at it, and be sure to check they other pre-sales as well.
