Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: The New Tomica Box Set

The only other ongoing diecast CARS series is from Japan, from Tomica.

Unlike the Mattel line which other than the love of re-re-releasing McQueen’s in each box has given us over 200 CARS – Tomica is pretty much sticking to a few dozen CARS and has been re-issuing them with different eye positions. They do have a new set though – a new box set of 12 CARS with new non-canon motifs that are interesting …


And they come with a cute Lightyear wheel case …


I think it’s a typical Japanese “blind” item in that each display box does not necessarily contain all 12 CARS.


This is the store display box – each CAR retails for @$9.50 USD after Yen conversion.


While I have not seen one of these in person, I’m presuming it’s the same molds and materials of their regular diecast line and they are HEAVY METAL … they do not kid around. They are solid – no skimping on metal though as noted in the previous post – good sculpting and great quality but not as GREAT of sculpts of the Mattel line …
