Ferrari 333 SP by Hot Wheels

It's inevitable that the discontinued Hot Wheels Elite line would steal the thunder from the non-elite lineup.

That's good news for the frugal collector because we now have the chance to pickup gems like Ferrari 333 SP shown here.

As can be seen here, the model has excellent detail too.

The Nissan Diesel Afrial (Aerial) Ladder Morita Fire Truck by Tomica with the real life Fire Truck

It's always cool to see the real model a diecast toy is based on. This is even more true for fire engines because they hold a special appeal to many people.

Tomica / Tomy firetrucks are very popular with collectors because of their attention to detail. It is no surprise then that these models end up being very collectible and high priced.

Here's are photos of the model and the real thing.

A whole boatload (literally!) of buses by Tomica

These are, by no means, a complete listing of Tomica buses. These 44 models are maybe half or a third of all Tomica buses ever made. 

But if these were real buses then they would definitely be a literal boatload of buses.

I will try to enlist my bus collector friends to figure out just how many different kinds of Tomica buses were manufactured.

In the meantime, enjoy the photos.
