Back in January John discovered that Maisto was coming out with a new lineup of diecast cars honoring some of our favorite old school rides. Now they’re out in independent retail and online stores. Most reports have indicated they are available in Mitsuwa and other Japanese goods stores. They aren’t the easiest to find, but they are a very cool addition to the ol’JNC office.
Our favorite is this BRE-themed Datsun 620, but the lineup includes a Datsun 510, Nissan 370Z, Toyota Pickup, Scion xB, and Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X. As the name implies, they are 1:55 in scale and we think it’s pretty darned nifty that they chose to memorialize these classics! See the full lineup below the fold.
Maybe “MPC” will reissue their 1/24 Datsun 620 pickup model kits after seeing these !
If I ever feel the urge to buy a JNC donk, I’ll look for them 😉
I’d been looking for these since I first heard about ’em months ago. Then a few weeks ago we got some at work (Cabe Toyota) and I bought all the Toyota/Scion ones for myself 🙂
For anyone in the Long Beach area, we still have a full set of the six Toyotas and Scions.
How do I get those.. I couldn’t find them. In stores except for some other hotrods.
bre 620 tribute with donk deep wats?!?
i think somebody needs to build that for realz!!
Does anyone know what the bre Datsun #55’s are worth?? I have both of the bre #55’s and can’t find a price for them anywhere and I’ve been trying to find out for 2 years. Or does anyone know the value of what the Fifty 5 Maisto cars are in general??
