Tomica Limited Vintage NEO LV-N224a
1998 Toyota Chaser jzx100
In September 1996, the X100 Chaser replaced the X90 Chaser. By this time, the Chaser had become a more sporty sedan; for many, it was the definitive Chaser and the best-looking model. The product lineup consisted mostly of Avantes and Tourers, with the Avante as the luxury model (with more interior accessories) and the Tourer as the sporty model (with large 16-inch wheels). Toyota's VVTi, the company's version of variable-valve timing, was added to the 1JZ engines; they were also upgraded to give out more torque, since they had already reached the legal limit set by Japanese authorities regarding horsepower. The 1JZ-GTE was powered by a single turbo configuration instead of the twin turbo of its predecessors. New to the lineup was the Avante Four and the Avante Four G Package (basically the Avante 2.5 L with a full-time 4WD system). These cars were only available in 4-speed electronic control type (ECT) automatic transmission. The Tourer V and automatic-only Avante G 3.0 L (2JZ) models had the option of electronic control flex lockup attaching 4-speed automatic (intelligent) (ECT-iE) transmission, besides the ECT-E automatic in the lower-end models.
JDM is a dream for the 90s baby. It is a big trend for the manufacturer for producing the JDM diecast car. And the Tomica limited vintage neo series owned a big market for producing some JDM, such as the GTR, Civic, Evolution, etc. The qualification and the fineness are better than the Kyosho. But it produces different real car brand diecast car.
For the first edition, Tomytec published the pearl white and dark green color. In this set, it attached two custom parts, rear wings, and sunroof wind deflectors. And the front and real bumper were modified.
The headlight and the turn signal are detailing.
Looking forward to seeing TomyTec produce more different kinds of collective memory vehicles. Also, it is more fun to produce more parts for the collector to custom or modify, such as bumper set, rims set, etc.
