In the 1980s, Lintoy began making and issuing Erlt diecasts with the Lintoy name on their bases as made in Hong Kong. These were the exact casting as made in the USA otherwise. Two vehicles were also used in a transporter set issued by Shinsei. Lintoy is part of the diecast conglormeration owned by Peter Lin in Hong Kong who apparently had some type of contractual arrangement with Ertl to produce them in Hong Kong.
