Hey LaLD! Been a minute since I posted on here. Just wanted to give a quick update on the collection.
Sheesh. We have had a cat-5 political hurricane here. Still no signs of recovering. Forget about that for a moment now.
My doorstep was really good to me yesterday. Not sure i want to take these out but I probably will.
Picked up this playworn Toyota Celica about a month ago for $0.50 from a loose diecast bin. I finally have a replacement battery for the old power drill coming later this week! Thought I’d take some photos before the upcoming makeover/conversion into my cousin’s 1:1.
Just a few Tomica! The Hino Profia tow truck is pretty decent, but the little dummy Prelude it comes with is very small. It looks better next to the 1/64 TownAce.
Yesterday was a holiday, so decided to take my JL Land Cruiser on a small journey.
Or as Tomica Limited Vintage-Neo calls it, the Toyota Cresta Super Lucent Twincam 24. Quite the mouthful, isn’t it? That’s all par for the course with getting long names and boxy design like the many Japanese cars produced in the eighties.
... have a TS010 by IXO. Designed by Tony Southgate, driven by Jan Lammers.
Just scouting some terrain for the next safari :D
This is my first cotton smoke experience. Cotton is reduced the realism, because it is too dense. In my ongoing studies I will make more efforts to resolve this problem. I hope you like it.
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.
Here we go, reusing photos again... Sorry guys, but I had a hard time thinking of any 10 cylinder engines in my collection, until it was 11:30pm and I was desperately trying to go to sleep.
Sorry, I was a little late and I was active on the 2nd day. Because I have a lot of other photos and my school. 😅 I’m here this week now. Guess which car is in order?
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!
Before JDM is a buzzword, Johnny Lightning and others came up with a few selected Japanese casting. On my 151st post is one of Johnny Lightning’s best known Japanese casting, the Land Cruiser.
For the wildcard, I’ll show this Tomica F1 Panasonic Toyota TF103. This was the car Toyota used in the 2003 Formula One season, and it was driven by Frenchman Olivier Panis and Brazilian Cristiano da Matta.
The Toyota GT-One is one of the special cars in my collection, ticking off most of the boxes on my check list - the scale, the car type and the back story.
Since car week is all about the visuals, I’m gonna shut up and let the car do the talking. Let’s get it.
The Toyota 2000GT may be the famous Toyota sports car of the 1960s, but the Sports 800 is the cute one.
