Tomytec has recently unveiled the Tomica Limited Vintage releases scheduled for July 2019.

One is a brand new casting, while others are variants or modifications of existing castings.


A rally version of the U12-generation Bluebird SSS-R (LV-N 185) will be released. The SSS-R differed from other Bluebirds by having extra driving lights and a more spartan interior. Two paint schemes will be offered - a factory promotional scheme, and the livery of the Calsonic Bluebird that won the 1988 All Japan Rally Championship. The U12-generation Bluebird has previously been released as a Bluebird SSS ATTESA-X (LV-N 11), a standard FWD model (LV-N 16) and a SSS ATTESA (LV-N 80). This generation was sold as the Nissan Stanza in North America in the late 1980s.

The first Lancer Evolution casting from TLV is the Evo IV in GSR trim (LV-N 186). As a smaller car featuring the same 2.0L turbocharged I4 and 4WD system of the Galant VR-4, the Lancer Evolution quickly found racing success. The IV brought torque vectoring to the Lancer Evolution line, and also featured integrated fog lights for the first time. Later releases of this casting will depict the Evo V and Evo VI as well.


Another version of the Mazda 787B will be released, this time depicting the car as it was during testing in early 1991. This chassis (001) was later repainted and entered into the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans as No. 18, previously released by TLV. This release includes different headlights, and a lack of fairings on the front wheels.


There will be another release of the S50-generation Toyota Crown (LV-181), this time depicting a post-facelift, top-of-the-line Super Deluxe model. This generation of Crown has seen several releases, in both regular sedan and van (wagon) form.
