Bring the Toys II: Tomica Skyline 50th Anniversary die-casts
As Japan celebrates 50 years of the Nissan Skyline, Tomica, known for its Matchbox-style die-cast cars has released six new commemorative toy cars. Arriving in their signature cardboard boxes (just like matchboxes used to), these cars' packaging will feature the Skyline 50th logo and each will come with a collectible decal as well. generations two (S54B) through six (R30) of the Japanese icon are represented, including a blue "Ken and Mary" coupe. The cars will sell for ¥ 525 apiece in Japan starting at the end of this month, and while Tomicas are a little harder to come by here in the States, they're all over eBay, so if you want the Skylines, you should start seeing them on the auction site in due time.
