Hot Sixty 4th: Tomica Thursday with the GT-Rs

Welcome to Hot Sixty 4th in which I show off my DLM 1/64 and smaller and sometimes larger collections. This is the 4th and 5th of the 5 TLVs that arrived last month and for my 221st post are the Feb 2019 release of the LV-177 (b) ‘70 Skyline 2000 GT-R and Jan 2019 release of the LV-176 (a) ‘69 Skyline 2000 GT-R.

Both castings were release in 2 different colors and I decided (for now) to limit myself to one of each. So are there any differences between the ‘69 and ‘70 year? Yes there are and no matter how major or minor the differences are, Tomica spared no expense in showing them in their castings.

Even though they both look alike the key to knowing that the castings are not identical is the numbering on their boxes as shown below.
