Tomytec has recently unveiled the Tomica Limited Vintage releases scheduled for September 2019.
Five (!) brand new castings have been announced, along with three modified variants of existing castings.
The first casting of the fourth-generation (EF) Civic in the TLV lineup has been announced - a Honda Civic SiR II hatchback (LV-N 182). The SiR model featured the new fuel-injected B16A, Honda’s first production engine with the new VTEC technology, which varied valve timing for fuel economy or performance. The offered colours are dark green (which looks black in previews) and white, and should pair well with the tuned and racing versions on offer from Inno Models.
New in the TLV Ferrari lineup are castings of the Testarossa and 512TR. The Testarossa depicted is a later model, with standard mirrors in place of the single high-mounted one of early models, and five-lug wheels instead of centrelock metric (TRX) wheels. The Testarossa was the successor of the 365 GT/4 BB and 512 BB models, and was replaced by the 512 TR, which had an upgraded engine.
The second-generation Mitsubishi Pajero (LV-N 189) is a new casting to the TLV lineup. The variants scheduled for release in September depict a top-of-the-line Super Exceed Z model, with the 3.5L V6, sunroof, and 3-row seating.
A casting of the Datsun 720 King Cab has been announced as part of the LV-N43 (1:43 scale) lineup, with both a 2WD version (LV-N43-27) and a raised 4WD version (LV-N43-26) with 80s graphics and a roll bar. Both feature a separate, detailed chassis, befitting of a fairly pricey 1:43 diecast.
Two more variants of the 410 Bluebird casting have been announced - a Fancy Deluxe model (LV-65) and a Metropolitan Police car (LV-183). The 410 Bluebird featured Pininfarina styling, and introduced the SSS-model, later a mainstay of the Bluebird lineup.
Two more Lancer Evolution models are scheduled for release, this time depicting an Evolution VI in GSR trim (LV-N 190). Compared to the Evo IV and V, the Evo VI features a larger intercooler and front bumper. The Evolution IV (LV-N 186) and Evolution V (LV-N 187) are scheduled for a July release and August release, respectively.
