My first Tomica ever. I love it. Great colour, detail, suspension and transitional superfast wheels. Oh wait...I mean.... :hat:

Very nice. Not a common piece.
Is it? Do you know when this one was released? The base says 1978 but I can only assume that this is the year the copyright or licence was first obtained, like we see with HW or MBX models, not the year this variation was released?

Wow, never heard of this one!
Pretty cool, not a bad casting at all. Good score!

I would think it was first released in '78 or '79 at the latest, but who knows when this variation was made.

The F series line of Tomicas (i.e. non-Japanese cars) were introduced in 1976. This model indeed came out in 1978. It was produced perhaps until 87 or so.

Oh, great condition then. I'm glad. Looks more like late 90's to me, so minty fresh, I don't know too much about Tomica yet. But I like them and I will get the odd one here and there if I can.

Edit: I came out in 1978 too, so...good! :)
