Nipco is another Chinese manufacturer typified as making 'crude' diecasts copied from other brands.

They were imported to the Canadian market by Optex Corporation of Don Mills, Ontario. They were also marketed under the Rhino and Thinkway Toys brand names but, in different paint schemes. As another Canadian distributor of the Nipco Toys Ltd products Thinkway Toys of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada marketed a series called "Color Change Racers". These are the same castings noted to have been issued (?) by Nipco. Here one resource listing seems to indicate Nipco Toys Ltd was only a maker of diecast, but a different second reference notes they also distibuted their own castings as well (?).

No, visual image or details are given about the casting design or detals.

See Sohbi. and Thinkway Trading also.
