Here is another TLV from the collection that hopefully makes you smile. As a refresher, I am essentially grabbing TLV's from my collection at random and showing them here, just to give those new to the brand an idea of what TLV is all about. Mainly TLV is about realism, quality, and true scale. No … Continue reading Another overlooked Tomica Limited Vintage: Toyota Townace Wagon 1800 Custom EX
I'm having too much fun just staring at my Tomica Limited Vintage wall display trying to figure out what models to shoot for this blog. The purpose is to jump a little deeper into TLV, flying right past the Ferraris, RX-7s, and 787b's that have demanded so much attention. But I haven't gotten that deep. … Continue reading How about another non-Ferrari Tomica Limited Vintage: Mitsubishi Galant GTO 2000 GSR
Moving to the next model in my random perusal through my Tomica Limited Vintage collection. Consider this another dart to throw at the dartboard to see what sticks. It all sticks for me.

So here is my fear with a post title like the one above. Many of you won't read this and throw our your "all these fanboys who only want to scalp the Ferraris and Civics!

I'd go to take it all in, cars or whatever. But obviously there would be a few booths I would make … Continue reading Here is what Tomica Limited Vintage teased at the 2019 Shizuoka Hobby Show in Japan
Oh TLV set things off today. We TLV nerds were wondering when the next set of Ferraris would be unveiled. That was today, and the next set, a Testarossa and 512TR, will drop in September. 80's madness, these two. My guess is they will be released later in September, after the standard September Release. And … Continue reading Tomica Limited Vintage just unveiled the next set of Ferraris. And Civics. And Evos. And Pajeros. Yes, Pajeros.
Right out of the gate, let's be clear. No Ferraris in this Release. Hopefully there aren't too many laptops being slammed shut with a grown of disproval. I too have fallen for the spell of the TLV Ferraris, but we are back to the basics for April. We need a chance to catch out breath … Continue reading The April Release from Tomica Limited Vintage is now available at Japan Booster
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. … Continue reading A Lamley look at the stunning Tomica Limited Vintage Ferraris
Tomica Limited Vintage Ferrari at Japan Booster I was talking to a friend yesterday who had just seen the photos of the new Ferraris from Tomica Limited Vintage. He said he "probably" should have pre-ordered at least the F40 on Japan Booster's Pre-Order site. I corrected him by saying he "definitely" should have. There are … Continue reading The new Tomica Limited Vintage Ferraris hit Japan Booster this morning. Here is the link and the details.
