~ Tomica Toyota Probox Highway Patrol Car

Finally I found this highway patrol version of Toyota Probox. I have been looking for this car for almost 1 year+. It has 3 different version released in standard Tomica series i.e. normal Probox, police patrol Probox, and highway patrol Probox. Now I am not sure whether I should get the other 2 version. Anyway, the highway patrol version looks the best among the 3 version. It's in 1/57 scale.

Yellow is my favourite colour =)

Nicely painted red and white stripes on bumper. The headlamps are painted in silver on black plastic.

Small Japanese words printed on both side doors. This car has suspension!!!

The rear lamps are painted in red and the bumper is painted in red and white as well but in reverse patent compare to front bumper. However, the rear windscreen is painted not plastic which is a common technique used by Tomy for almost of the Tomica cars. You should this if you happen to it =)

This is the best unique part i.e. the mini sign board can be "opened" to reveal a electronically alike display board. The words are actually stickers.

The rear door is open-able.

The actual Prabox was released in 2002. If I am not mistaken this highway patrol version was released in 2003 by Tomy.

~ SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Online

This game was out about 1 year + ago. It's an online version for PC. However, it requires Korean Social Service Number in order to create an account for this game. I thought a few years later this game would open for international SD Gundam fans. Every MS and MA has special skills and cool sound effects. Surrounding can get damage too!!! Anyway, strong teamwork, strategy and quick response are definitely important elements in this game in order to win the battle. I really hope there is an international version!!!

~ Hotwheels Super Treasure Hunt$ Skyline

Skyline is one of my favourite Japanese car!!! As a Hot Wheels collectors do you collect the cars because of its design or the word "limited"? Answer for me is great design. But for this Skyline it carries both "great design" and "limited" title. Let us have a look on what is so special about this "Super Hunt"?!!

The main unique features of Super Treasure Hunt$ is the car is painted in spectraflame colour compared to regular treasure hunt.

The headlamps are painted. The bonnet is painted in black to "simulate" carbon bonnet.

Many tiny logos and lucky number "7" are printed on both side of doors. They are official logos!!! Besides that, it has rubber wheels and cool sporty rims.

A "Nissan" word is printed on rear wind screen.

A very heavy modified muscular look of Skyline R32.

Great impressive detail by Hot wheels for a 1/64 cars!!! Salute for such great detail!!! I like the word "GT-R". :p

This Skyline has a grey base and was made in Malaysia.

~ Hotwheels Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X (Group)

Finally, I have completed all 3 colours of Lancer EVO X from Hotwheels. Among the 3 colours, I like the grey one the most. Besides colour variation, the rims and base color are different. However, I still miss out a lot of 2008 cars due to lack of supply of certain models in Malaysia.

~ SD Kamen Rider Ixa

The design of Kamen Rider looks more like Sentai or Power Rangers since Den-O series. I bought this Ixa from a local toy shop since it was priced at half price of 800yen for a display unit. Ixa still looks good in SD form. It was released in the SD Kamen Rider Kiva swing series by Bandai in 2008 and comes with keychain.

Detail mask and body design!!!

The pose looks great!!! Ixa:" Hands up!!! Else eat the smoke!!!". :p

~ SD Kamen Rider Kiva

Kamen Rider Kiva is the brand new KR in 2008. Kiva gives me the feel of Batman merge with Spawn. Its design is quite unique. Bandai gives KR brand new looks and new fighting style since KR Den-O series. I bought this Kiva from the Bandai mini Den-O figure candy 2nd series. The retail price is 100yen each.

The paintjob is quite good and I am really impressed that its sculpt is quite detail.

It was released in 2008 by Bandai.

~ Maisto Hummer H2T (1/64)

Hummer is one of my favourite vehicle as it has cool aggressive looks!It looks tough and strong as well! I grabbed this Maisto Hummer H2T last week as I noticed it has cool rims and accurate mold. Nowadays it is very difficult to find Maisto produce its 1/64 scale diecast with this type of detail rim. I guess those were produced in the ealier batch or "first-edition". I already missed out Jeep with this type of rim. Nowadays, mostly available in the market is those "chrome-rims" like hotwheels.

Actually, I added details on the front grill and lamps. Originally, the frontage is actually in orange colour except the bumpers is made from black plastic and the black part on the hood is painted in black by Maisto.

The side has some detailing. There is a "H2" wording. I have added silver on the door handle and oil cap. I love the wheels!!! The wheels are made from 2 parts. The silver part can be seperated from the black tire. However, it has no rubber tire.

The tops looks really detail!!! All the black parts is originally painted by Maisto.

Again, I has added colouring and detailing on rear lamps.

It is made by Maisto, China.

~ Hotwheels Volkswagon Beetle Convertible (Mystery)

Old school Beetle!!! This is one of the car that I got from "tikam". I mean need to have some luck to get your wanted cars. It is from 2007 mystery series which is sealed in black blister. That's why we can't see what car we are getting. In Malaysia, we must purchase a "Hot box" in order to get a mystery car. The "Hot box" package comes with 3 cars including one mystery car, a 2007 poster, a plastic casing for car storage and a outer layer hard card box. I will try to take the "Hot box" package photo and post in my blog.

A nice convertible Beetle from Hot wheels. It is in pearl purple color. It actually has another colour which is green. However, I have no luck to get that colour.

It actually has light purple tempo on the hood and side doors but they are not really visible. Perhaps Mattel should apply darker colour for the tempo.

Nice white interior!!! It gives me a cool luxurious feel.

The base is made from metal as well. Thus, gives this bug a solid feel!
