Big things with little cars

Tomica Time, Part IV

The hatchback STi comes in second place on this list.


As my favorite generation of the STi, it had to be on here somewhere. I had my share of Tomica as a child, but this is the one I consider to be my first. It was just a random stop at TRU that prompted me to pick this up. I had just gotten into seriously collecting diecast a year or two prior, knew very little of anything not named Hot Wheels or Matchbox, and had no idea what the model would look like because Tomica boxes depict the 1:1 rather than the toy.

So that’s how the Tomica craze started for me: this little Subie.
