Rennsport Reunion: Safety Fast Rennsport Reunion: Safety Fast

And now that it is coming to an end, the Police would like to remind us to drive home safely and to stick to the Speed Limit. But if you don’t, they are prepared with a range of appropriate enforcement vehicles:

Rennsport Reunion: Zylmex Porsche 935 Turbo Martini Rennsport Reunion: Zylmex Porsche 935 Turbo Martini

Today’s offering looks a bit more like the real thing than yesterday’s Summer:

I'm sorry to interrupt, but here's some Ferrari and Lambo news... I'm sorry to interrupt, but here's some Ferrari and Lambo news...

Tomica have now officially announced the Ferrari 488 GTB as a November release. Good luck getting a yellow one!

Rennsport Reunion: The Summer of '78 Rennsport Reunion: The Summer of '78

This is a Porsche 935-78. By Summer. Which really explains everything that is going on here.

Rennsport Reunion: Porsche Audi 917/10 CanAm Rennsport Reunion: Porsche Audi 917/10 CanAm

Today I have a little YatMing model for the Rennsport Reunion. And cars don’t get more Rennsport than the 917/10. Speedhunters.com called it and its younger, even more powerful sister the 917/30 “the most ferocious, raw racing cars ever constructed. “

Rennsport Reunion: Porsche 928 Canon Racing Rennsport Reunion: Porsche 928 Canon Racing

This little Tomica model had me scratching my head for ages. The “Canon” racing livery looks real enough. The names of Tony Dron and Richard Lloyd are certainly familiar and connected to both Porsche and Canon Racing. But a 928 Racing Car? No way, there’s no record of that ever happening.

Rennsport: Interscope Porsche 935 Rennsport: Interscope Porsche 935

Normally collecting is easy. You buy, you enjoy. Unless you buy an old Solido model, where the water slide decals are supplied separately.

Land of the Rising Sun Day: Tomica Dandy Toyota Corolla Lift Back Land of the Rising Sun Day: Tomica Dandy Toyota Corolla Lift Back

Today’s subject is a model of a car that had no equivalent in the Regular Tomica line-up - the E30 Corolla Lift Back.

Here's a Suzuki Swift for your viewing pleasure Here's a Suzuki Swift for your viewing pleasure

Because we can’t just have Porsches, Ferraris and GT-Rs all of the time.

Tomica October / November Update Tomica October / November Update

TakaraTomy seem to have changed their updates policy recently. At the moment, we are getting dribs and drabs rather than one monthly announcement. Which I find a bit annoying. But here is what we know for sure so far:

Spaghetti Saturday: Tomica Premium Ferrari Testarossa Spaghetti Saturday: Tomica Premium Ferrari Testarossa

What was the biggest news in diecast in 2018? Pop up headlights return in small scale. That’s my answer.

Tomica has already made a model of the new Supra - and No, you can't have one. Tomica has already made a model of the new Supra - and No, you can't have one.

Not unless you fork out big $$$ on the secondary market anyway, or happened to be lucky enough to attend the 2018 Tomica Expo in Yokohama.

Land of the Rising Sun Day: Subaru Brat Land of the Rising Sun Day: Subaru Brat

Here’s the latest version of the Hot Wheels Subaru Brat from the “Shop Trucks” car culture series.

Running of the Bulls: Zylmex Lamborghini Countach Running of the Bulls: Zylmex Lamborghini Countach

Because there is never too much Countach, or Zylmex.

Running of the Bulls: Tomica Lamborghini Set Running of the Bulls: Tomica Lamborghini Set

Today I have a 4 pack - chock full of Sant’Agatas finest: The Tomica Lambo Set from a couple of years ago.

Running of the Bulls: Majorette Lamborghini Countach Running of the Bulls: Majorette Lamborghini Countach

It’s not the sharpest casting of this car, but a lovely period piece nonetheless.

Running of the Bulls: Matchbox Lamborghini Miura Running of the Bulls: Matchbox Lamborghini Miura

Here’s an example of the modern Matchbox Miura casting, and I’ve got to say that they got it pretty right. Not much to complain there. And here’s a pic of a 1:1 I saw in a Museum last month:

Running of the Bulls: Zylmex Lamborghini Miura Running of the Bulls: Zylmex Lamborghini Miura

I didn’t really have the time to take new photos - so I will just run with some old favorites. Here’s one - the Zylmex Lamborghini Miura.

Tomica for September '18 - Update Tomica for September '18 - Update

So there seemed to be very little new for Tomica in September - and the reason was that they didn’t put all the new releases on their website initially. Now the website has been updated again - and we get a few more goodies.

Land of the Rising Sun Day: Tomica Dandy Toyota HiAce Camper Land of the Rising Sun Day: Tomica Dandy Toyota HiAce Camper

We are obviously deep in the 1970s here. Back when people travelled the Hippie Trail (head full of zombie) in old Camper Vans. And this Toyota is here to remind you that you didn’t have to use an old VW Kombi. You could have used a HiAce instead.
