Some Tomica Buses - Part 1

Here are some buses from the Tomica Line.

I had these buses before but a lot of them have been disposed already.

I'll upload the photos first and add the model names later

So to all you bus lovers out there enjoy...

My Tomica Mousepad

Forgot to share this with you guys and gals earlier.

I did a little shopping for some new Tomicas and my friendly neighborhood Tomy promo person gave me a couple of mousepads.

To All The Dads - We know exactly what the quotation means....

Sherman made the terrible discovery that men make about their fathers sooner or later... that the man before him was not an aging father but a boy, a boy much like himself, a boy who grew up and had a child of his own and, as best he could, out of a sense of duty and, perhaps love, adopted a role called Being a Father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector, who would keep a lid on all the chaotic and catastrophic possibilities of life.  ~Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities

Happy Fathers Day!

And to those who have not watched John Q, check it out because it is one movie that hits fathers deeply because that is how far we will go for our children

A Pair Of BADD Rides

I have a confession to make. I have been known to be more of a Tomica guy than anything else. But there are a few select members out there who know that I have a weakness for Import Tuners, Playing Mantis stuff and Badd Rides among others.

In fact, I have a secret stash of these which I open up every so often just to admire the models. In the case of these two beauties, I took them out of the blister pack and put them on my work table so I have them sitting here in front of me while I work.

I couldn't resist the temptation to take a photo but you'll have to excuse the quality. I'll take better photos next time. For now, this photo, on top of my Asus 1000HE will have to do.

The Tomica Version

The preceding video shows the real thing - now feast your eyes on the toy

Police interceptors at Mcrae Gathering

I had the pleasure of running into the Interceptor Series a while back, more than a year ago if I'm not mistaken.

Like my friend Jovet, I was wondering if this was the real thing, but it WAS an honest to goodness series from the UK and it's really cool.
