On Monday, the Japan Post released a series of commemorative stamps and a 1:64 diecast car to honor the 25th anniversary of the Mazda Miata and the upcoming debut of the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 on September 3.

The car itself is one of the special 25th anniversary edition Mazda MX-5s that sold out in 10 minutes earlier this year. The price is ¥3500 and is limited to 4,500 pieces.

    Do you have any links to the artwork Bow did for Mazda?

    The Honda ones are awesome, and he did some for Subaru too.

    The stamps aren’t for sale in the US, unless you get them second-hand from someone.
    However you can try ordering them from 829Japan…

    I’m lucky, my wife is from Japan and she works at Mazda here in the states, so she actually wanted to get this set without me having to ask. We ordered direct from the JP Post. 🙂
