Tomica Lupin The Third (Fiat 500)

When I saw this at the shop, I had no idea who or what Lupin the Third was. Thanks to Google, I now know Lupin is a very popular manga and anime series. Anyway, back to the car, apparently it was featured in the anime Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro and this car is part of Tomica's Dream Series which features other vehicles popular in pop culture. I have always loved this Fiat 500 and was especially fond of seeing so many of them in Europe zipping in and out of alleyways and traffic.

This car is 1/51 in scale and as with most Tomica's, it is nicely detailed. I love the things on the roof and hence causing the rear to dip a bit because of the weight?

...and the rear compartment is opened to expose the engine

I can't say the yellow is to my liking as it is like an off-mustard color. I would love to see it in white or a nice fiery red.
