Hi Everyone,

Aoshima makes several different lines of 1/64 diecast cars that are distinctively Japanese. the first few are probably more desirable for the main stream collectors in USA. The rest I'd list under special interest.

Option Release 1 Tuned Sports Cars



Option Release 2 Tuned Sports Cars



Drift Paradise

Dangerous Detectives. Detective cars based on Japanese police movies. Will be great companion cars if you collect police cars.


Grand Champion Collection. Modified street cars from the 70's and 80's. With dropped height and after-market fenders and spoilers. Interesting paint schemes... very different from modern day Japanese tuners as seen in Fast & Furious. Series 4 shown:


Ita-Sha Collection. Outlandishly decorated cars by fanatical anime fans (otaku) often with giant decals of their favorite anime characters. It's a very Japanese thing, strangely popular too! Many are also modified to boost performance, and some are exotic cars likes Ferrari, Lamborghini, or even the rare Lancia Stratos. It's hard to describe so it might be easier if you just use google's image search for "itasha." You really have to see it to believe that these cars do actually exist.

A lot I have never seen. I have four of the Option #1 cars and three of the lightweight sports cars. These cars are incredible.

Wow...just...wow.

Very interesting indeed.The tuners and anime cars are just too cool to pass up, the minicars look very cool too, and the detective cars...IDK why, but they just pull u in...

I think the Renault F1 cars will be on the market in January 2011. Pre-sale is already available on eBay.

These cars are neat!

I really want the Grand Champions line and the Itasha series.

Anyone know where in the USA these can be found besides Ebay?
