Surprised no-one has mentioned the Fresh Cherries diecasts -- I get them at Wal-Mart for a couple of bucks apeice. Wish my camera was working, 'cause I got a 1975 Civic CVCC and a 1982 Accord (both 1/87, I believe). I also got a 1987 Tempo and a 1976 Pinto, but that's another story.


Fresh Cherries has also done the Honda Civic CVCC in 1/64 scale (I haven't put the verniers to them yet but I think they might be slightly bigger than true 1/64th scale)

Two colours released. It was only when I was cropping the photo I realized the blue one had rolled it's tyre of its rim !

Detailing is a little heavy but still nice models

That's awesome. Too bad the lineup was canceled. I wonder what else they would have come up with.

It's a little sad the the Dodge Aires K-Car got a diecast before numerous Datsuns, Mazdas, etc.

Look what I found at a local bric-a-brac sale... its in brilliant condition for a 70's tin toy from Japan!

I bought it thinking I could probably sell it for a tidy profit.. but I have kind of got attached to its cuteness!

AUD$120

I have seen similar toyota ones for over $200, so I hoped it might be cheap.

Seems like a lot now that I have to actually type it out though!!

So you guys have all seen and heard about the all platinum Fairlady Z that is valued at 700 million yen but not for sale...
Image

Well, the folks at Takara Tomy have made something a little more affordable. These Wajima Lacquer miniatures valued at a mere 80,000 yen, but alas, also not for sale... only 80,000 - I wonder if that is for each or for all four?

Cheers!

Nice job! Has anyone else customized their die-cast to resemble their 1:1?

That's too cool for school. Perhaps there should be a thread with that theme :)

Came across these on a recent trip to Japan. They are the Mystery-Toy type of deal, where it's a sealerd box and you don't really know what you're going to get, beyond the knowledge that it's one of the cars from the series. They're from the Shakotan Boogie cartoon, so I was pretty curious as to what we would get. These retail for Y440ea.

Image

In the end we lucked out on the Hako, but did score the Yanky Mate Zed and the Soarer.
Image

The detail is actually pretty nice! But the proportions are slightly exaggerated as per the cartoon, with undersized deep dish wheels and oversized glasshouses. They are a bit bigger than a Tomica
Image

Speaking of Tomica, I paid a quick visit to the Tomica Shop at Tokyo station.
Image

Of main interest were the Vintage Neo collection, which are a bit more than twice the price of a regular Tomica (about $10)

The selection was a little eclectic to say the least, with Luce taxi and Isuzu Gemini
Image

Nissan Violet 140J
Image

Bluebird and Carina
Image

They also sold the larger models, but these were pricey at $50
Image

Plus lots of things for kids like Kenmeri tote bag
Image

AE86 face cloth, Tomica toothbrushes, lunchboxes, you name it
Image

In the end I bought a KE70 and a Prince Skyline 1900 from the Vintage Neo series. Terrific detail for the price IMHO, these are the same size as regular Tomica
Image
