I love it when Tomica do a nod to models of the past - and this is just one such instance. The #39-3 Suzuki Carry Farm Truck was part of the Tomica line-up for a good long time - from 1980 to 2001 to be exact.
And what’s not to love? A cute little kei truck with two pigs on the back, it proved to be a very popular model.
So this year, Tomica brought a similar model back as an Event Model for Osaka - the current Subaru Sambar casting as a Farm Truck. Only, this time it’s bigger and better and can accommodate four piglets.
But there’s no room for hay on the truck this time, so I hope they don’t have a long journey ahead of them. Being an Event Model, I had no choice but to pay “aftermarket” prices for one, but I really wanted one to go with the Carry.
So we’ll let the piggies run free a bit before they’re off to the market.
