The Ferraris have taken over. The four new releases from Tomica Limited Vintage, the first of a few different Ferraris coming, have enthralled the diecast nerds. You can’t help but get out the phone or camera and shoot some angles of these beauties.
And it started with the F40, but the Dinos are catching up. It was interesting to watch actually. Basing it on what I watched with Japan Booster, their F40 presales went super fast, with the two Dinos lagging a bit behind. Same thing when the models were finally released a couple of weeks ago. The F40s were gobbled up.
But I think quite a few collectors are realizing they should have grabbed the Dinos as well. As soon as I debuted the Ferrari feature on my YouTube Channel Friday Night, Japan Booster listed all four. The first to sell out? The Yellow F40, which isn’t a surprise considering how limited it is. Next? Both Dinos, leaving the red F40 all by itself? My theory? Tons of you bought the F40, and as soon as you see the Dinos up close, you are realizing you need those too.
AAAAAAAANNNNNNNNND that is what collecting Tomica Limited Vintage will do to you. I have said on many occasion you don’t need them all, just the occasional replica of a car you really like. But deep down I hold that evil secret, that TLV is terribly addicting, and you will find a way to get more. These Ferraris are a gateway drug to a terrible, yet totally enjoyable addiction. Wait until you are pacing around you house muttering to yourself all the ways to figure out how to complete your Cedric/Gloria collection. We longtime TLV collectors are enjoying watching so many of you running straight off the cliff. Plunge, my friend. Plunge.
