When Prince and Nissan motor decided to merge, the result was the creation of a racing legend.
Coming soon to a Cars and Coffee near you...
As I go around to various stores searching for the latest and greatest from our favorite brands, I stopped into Toys R Us today to see what I could find. While I couldn’t find what I was exactly looking for, I did find three fantastic models to talk about, plus a special guest from a newly arrived thing.
I finally had some successful hunting last week, finding the JH2s I was looking for, and after unwrapping the Skyline C210 it somehow fell right into the paint stripper!
at the peg that is and I found it hanging alone not on the mainline but on the Hot Wheels premium section when this thing pop out of the crowd. Here is my 139th post showing off my collection of blue Nissan/Datsun with a beautiful Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R aka Kenmeri.
As part of my first HWEP with Shop Teacher, I also was the reciepient of my first RAOK - the Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-R aka Kenmeri Skyline, a special edition of the 1973 C110 Skyline.
So here is the line up for Series 1.
There’s a Skyline fan in all of us. Whether you prefer the classic Hakosukas, the leading-edge R34, or you fall somewhere in between, even the most anti-JDM can find a Skyline for them. Luckily for all of us, Hot Wheels has the bases covered.
Introduced in 2007, the R35 was the first GT-R that I encountered in the wild. By the time the first GTR showed up in the States, I’d already become a big fan of the Nissan marque, having bought a ‘08 Altima.
Welcome again to another DLM cars from 1/64 and smaller and sometimes larger. So here are the cars from my Mail Call 1 that came from Amiami that so happened to be black cars with a touch of white. Here is my 83rd post on the new TLVs I acquired by Tomica.
Welcome again to another DLM cars from 1/64 and smaller and sometimes larger. What’s the chances of getting a variation of the skylines from 2 different Target location? My 66th post is about that event.

I know I’m late in the game as many of you had already found and shown this over here so I was happy I finally snag one today via the Dollar Tree and it was the only one left.
Kenmeri, Hakosuka, Godzilla. All magical names for some generations of Nissan’s Skyline line of products. So these are, for a reason, represented a lot in the world of diecasts. Not so much for this generation, the C211 from 1981, maybe due to it’s a bit “beige” looks. But then again, it’s boxy ‘80's looks were really…
The plan was to do a full review of this piece, with high and low points, value-for-money, realism and general quality of this model. Then I found otaconmutasims absolutely excellent review on the Bayside Blue version. His article perfectly conveys not only my sentiments about the model (great addition, could be…
Truth be told, I only have three cars from the Land of the Rising Sun in my collection at present, so may I present for your gratification. Kyosho’s 1/18 Skyline 2000 GT-R.
Tamiya is better known for their model kits than 1/64 scale diecast models. But they do exist, if only by mail order from Japan. These aren’t even listed on their website, so I am not sure if they are still current. Probably not, which would be a shame. As you can see, the quality is really nice.
Under all that shiny gold chrome, there is a R33 Nissan Skyline GT-R courtesy of Tomica. Of all the RB26DETT powered Skyline GT-Rs, the R33 is the least loved of the trio. I am at loss as to why Tomica decided to make this, aside from the fact it is a limited edition and was never sold to the public. It's so shiny,…
Seeing Sn210's response post to the news of Doug's new ride, inspired me to do something to celebrate the Godzilla. This led to me to dig through my archive of pictures, lo and behold, some past images before I used the mini makeshift photo booth.
