Dream Tomica

My wife and I like weird-looking vehicles so we seldom buy Tomica models because these are usually based on real-life vehicles. But now there is Dream Tomica, and we recently bought three of them (because these were the only Dream Tomicas for sale at the store).

The Transformers Bumblebee has a price of around 300 pesos. Like the other two vehicles, this has what Tomica calls “suspension” (they bounce back when you press them down).

The Batmobile 4th (Camouflage version) has a price of around 350 pesos and is made in China. Like the other two vehicles, its bottom is made of plastic.

The Hello Kitty has a price of around 400 pesos. I bought it because my wife wanted it. Like the Transformers Bumblebee, the Hello Kitty is made in Vietnam. The large plastic windows are nice.

For some reason, of the three, only the Hello Kitty is “for sale in Japan only” and yet I was able to buy it in the Philippines. (A tip on how to close Tomica boxes fully: don’t.)

Some time ago, I asked a salesperson why the Tomica models had a “freewheel diecast” sticker. He replied that it was to differentiate them from the other models that had pull-back action.
