Using authentically-captured engine noise from real cars, Tomica has managed to cram micro-electronics in the Basic-line Tomica, so that when you touch it, it makes all sorts of sounds, from idle to revving to horn sounds, while emergency vehicles have sirens.
Finally took the camera out after the BMW week, for some serious action. Not many shots, but I am quite happy with the outcome.
In arguably the biggest announcement I’ll ever make on this site, Ferrari arrives to Tomica!!!
Old Tomica cars are my absolute favorite to customize. Everything fits together extremely well, and there is never a lack of little details.
It’s To///mica ti///me!
Wheels are from the Hotwheels Car Culture Golf GTI.
Recently I got my Tomica G. The Gelände. And it’s nice to see the difference with how a SUV has evolved when you put a more recent one next to it. I don’t have MLs or something so I’m gettin out one of the few 1/64 SUVs I have: Minichamps Porsche Cayenne GTS.
I needed a new weird monster truck. This’ll do just fine.
It’s been a long time since I posted my sneak peak and now the wait is over and in time for 510 day.
Thanks to Ryan my Tomica Town has grown from a lone parking lot to an entire block!
It’s been a while.
I’ve been swamped at work lately and that’s affected posting both here and on Instagram.
Tomytec has recently unveiled the Tomica Limited Vintage releases scheduled for August 2018.
I never gave these Toyota vans from Tomica a second look until I visited Japan last month. The newer models are pretty overstyled and they grab your attention. I kinda like them, so these Tomicas came home with me. In order, they are the Vellfire, Voxy, and Alphard.
Engine week... How am I gonna do that with all those 1/43s and 1/64s? As those hardly show any of the internals. So I needed a plan. And no: this one ain’t the same as the one I did for LaLD Car Week 2018. That was a Norev 1/43 of my Be-1. This is a 1/64 TLV. Which I have two of actually.
Last week, I showed the Canter Refuse Truck, here to remove the old, and here is the truck bringing the new(s)! This is Tomica 107-1, the Nissan Caball Newspaper Truck.
One of the more interesting pieces I picked up in Japan, this is a Tomica Toyota Celsior that was a promo for the Osaka Motor show back in...well...I don’t really know which year!
I don’t know about you guys, but I remember as clear as day the first car I ever rode in. It was somewhere mid-1980s, in Amsterdam, smelled like dropjes (black licorice for you non-Dutch people), and had the most fascinating rear vent windows a 5-year old had ever seen.
