Tomica Toyota Vellfire & Nissan Serena

If you are new to the Super Fun Hot Wheels Blog, let me first say that I feature several 1:64 scale diecast vehicles here, not only Hot Wheels. And for now, this blog will be not so temporarily overtaken by my latest obsession in the aforementioned category, Tomica!

Tomica Toyota Vellfire
When exploring which Tomica to buy, I could hardly ignore the Vellfire with it's working double passenger doors.While these Tomica are basically the Matchbox of Japan, you won't find a feature like this on a Mattel diecast vehicle. Greatness!

Nissan Serena
This Nissan van may not have had enough room for the sliding panel doors, being smaller in size than the Vellfire, but it does have a hatchback. Though slightly clunky, the hatchback stays up when opened, unlike some of the hoods on Greenlight castings. Great metalflake plum color on this Tomica!

Tomica Suzuki Wagon R and Nissan Serena... 

I love these cheap little imports- like Matchbox and Hot Wheels, they have their own style and endearing features. The working doors, and contemporary models and colors in this line of diecast cars are wonderful! These may be easy to find in Asia, but their slight differences are appealingly exotic to my Western eyes...

Make It FAST- Make It FUN!
