Bring the Toys! Nissan's new Dualis, Skyline die-cast cars
Nissan's got a good thing going with its official shop, which actually does sell some pretty cool stuff. In addition to all the execu-type items (like leather goods and pens), branded wearables, and miscellaneous tchotchkies, they have a nice selection of die-cast cars. This week, two new ones were added to the roster: the Dualis crossover (Qashquai in Europe), and V36 Skyline sedan (a.k.a. Infiniti G35). Both cars are offered in 1/43 scale in a selection of factory paint colors. The detailing, as you'll see in the attached gallery, is pretty good, too. They're priced at ¥2,900 (around $24 bucks before shipping).
They join a raft of other cars in the automaker's die-cast stable, like the Fairlady Z, Cube, and several others. Collectors who browse the website should be sure to click on the Gr.A Skyline GT-R banner/button, as the first three in a series of six 1/18 scale die-cast Group A Skyline GT-R racers are available as well. At ¥13,000 yen (around $108 USD, not including shipping), they're not cheap, but they are cool.
