I need help with Tomy Die-cast Cars
Okay, so I picked up a few of these cars in a toy shop in HK today but I could not find any info about them on the net. I spent an hour trying to copy and paste Japanese that looks identical to the writing on the box as I don't know ANY Jap and I finally found that some are on sale on Amazon for much more than what I paid for. Here is the link:
I would really appreciate if someone could tell me which series it is and where I can find a definitive list of this series with pictures and shit. Thanks so much!:love:
