MINICARS: LS Collectibles’ 1:18 Toyota Celica Supra is now available for pre-order

Back in January we wrote about an exciting new series of 1:18-scale models of iconic Japanese cars of the 1980s. Made by LS Collectibles, they were still in the prototype phase, and the first one was the long-awaited A60 Toyota Celica Supra. The cars are very close to completion, and are now available for pre-order. 

The Celica Supra is offered in three colors, Super Red, Gloss Black, and the rare Light Blue Metallic. The cost of each one is €134.95 (or about USD $162) including tax, which is a competitive price for a low-volume 1:18 resin model.

We spoke with designer LS Collectibles’ designer David Houston, who is a big fan of Japanese cars and is the main advocate for their inclusion in the company’s lineup. He told JNC that while close to production, these are still prototypes and that he is working on revisions to the ride height, wheel and tire size, side window trim, roof spoiler and interior colors. Note that the cars are US-spec P-Types with LHD steering.

The second-generation Supra has long been missing from the 1:18 scale world, though versions in smaller 1:64 diecast and 1:24 plastic model kits exist. David says that it is important they receive enough orders for these cars so that he can justify more Japanese cars of the era in the future. He has a few ideas up his sleeve. The Celica Supra is available for pre-order on LS Collectibles’ website and will be shipped in July 2018.

    What a nicely detailed model. They even have the hatch keyhole molded in (note that the actual decal was cut around the “shiny” keyhole which detracted from the over all look). Only thing needed is to paint the muffler black (but keep the chrome tips). This was a trademark of the Toyota performance models of the eighties and was an easy way to determine if an aftermarket exhaust had been installed.

    Kind of looks like they combined the 82-83 models with the later ones. The former had the two tone paint and different taillights whereas the latter had the spoiler integrated into the hatch.

    On these models they probably ditched the spoilered hatches because that was probably too intricate to cast. I wish they would’ve just made the 82-83 models because I prefer the two tone paint and the taillights. But they still did a great job on these. Look at the black moldings where the flares attach to the body, very detailed.

      They modeled the 1984 P-Type. It was the first year of the body update which included wraparound front corner lights, redesigned taillights, and adoption of body colored rear hatch and bumpers. The 84 retained the single sunshade spoiler. The twin spoiler was introduced in 1985.

    I think I’m at the pre-midlife crisis stage. I would love to have a Celica Supra when the kids are gone. This model may have to do for now.
