We're Not Worthy! We're Not Worthy! Tomica Limited Vintage Green Chrome Nissan 3.5ton Wrecker Truck

I gotta tell you.  This is an unbelievable treat for me.  I hope you guys enjoy it, too.

I wasn't even aware of this truck's existence before purchasing the standard, very cool, but very normal LV-75a wrecker truck.


Inside the box was this piece of paper:

Tomica Limited Vintage Green Chrome Nissan 3.5ton Wrecker Truck

Yes!  Frigging color chromed TLV trucks!! XD  

It's amazing, it's fantastic...... then it gets a little scary.  On it, it is explained how only 100 of each trucks are to be given away for their 5 year anniversary.  


I'm sorry, I lost my train of thought for a second.  Yeah, dude.  One.  Hundred.  Pieces.

Well, I was lucky enough to know another TLV collector on my online home GTPlanet, who was crazy enough to go after one & actually score one!  :D  Seriously though, big thank you to GroupB for letting me feature these pictures:

Very Loose Translation(because, Japanese)

Again - REALLY casual translation(and Americanized).




Tomica Limited Vintage special keychain 5 year anniversary

Special "keyholder"(Japangrish for keychain).  If I understand it correctly, 100 of these were given away per round of contest as the "B" prize.  They were also given away to the "A" prize winners.  That's couple hundred per round & there were four rounds according to the letter.  

Corrections: 200 keychains per contests, yes, but it turns out that Tomytec changed the color of the leather tag from brown to black for the last two contest periods.  Also, it seems that 50 more of each color(brown & black) were given away in the 2012 contest.  More on this in the next post.


Now grab a napkin to keep the drool off your keyboard(or your smartphone).

I can't thank you enough for letting me share this on my blog, GroupB.  Beautiful pics, too.  Congratulations on this truly rare & awesome TLV.  OMG, what an upgrade to one's TLV collection!!  :D

P.S.  This isn't the first time we got to see GroupB's TLVs on this blog.  Check out his very first TLV(s) in "Our First TLV 2".  Always neat to check out other collectors & their cars!
