    Japanese Nostalgic Car Toys and Diecast

    So, we have the JNC Models thread, why not a Toy & Diecast thread?

    If you guys are up to it, I'll start out with a few entries. My only request is that we keep it on track with fairly Nostalgic cars... let's say, representative of 1985 and older? This topic can include various diecast scales, as well as Tomica, Choro-Q, Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Corgi, Diapet, Dinky, and various other brands of tin and plastic toys :wink:

    Here goes...

    I'll start with something called the The Japanese Cars Collection by Hachette Fujingaho Collection / Norev Miniature Collection.
    This line contain various Japanese makes and the cars come in a large box with a magazine. Everything is in Japanese, but this is still a cool set to collect. I have to limit myself to just the toyotas, but check out their website for other offerings.



    Vol. 36 Toyota Corona 1957


    Vol. 40 Toyota Land Cruiser 1974


    Vol. 43 Toyota MR2 1984

    Nice set!

    All I've got is my two Jada Option D S30s, as below.



    And I ordered a third Option D S30 last night off eBay, haha.

    I must have about 2500-3000 toy cars of which there must be at least 300 Nissans and maybe 3-400 other Japanese makes. I like toy cars...they're easier to collect than full size ones (although I do my best to collect those too :lol Here's some of which pics are handy on photobucket...

    Just picked up these two in 1/43. Both by Norev ...Nissan Sunny (B10) and Nissan Violet SSS (KP710)...





    Some 1/43 Pit-Road Sunnys (I love these!)...



    Got dozens more 1/43 but those were the only pics I have online right now.

    Got lots of pics of small scale ones on there though though. Tomica Nissan Cedric (330)...



    Tomica Marusen Technica Sunny (KB110)...



    Konami Nissan Violet SSS...



    Very poor Datsun 126X by SZE (got these by Matchbox, Aguti and Metal Box too)



    Datsun Cedric hardtop (230) by yatming...



    Tomica 510 coupe...



    Tomica Nissan Sunny Excellent coupe...



    Tomica Nissan Cherry 1400GX coupe (F10)



    Tomica Datsun 1500 double pickup...



    Tomica Nissan Caravan (E20)



    Got these really tiny diecasts made by Miniature Model Planning too. Not sure of scale ...probably 1/87...
