I have been buying Tomica cars from Japan for many years now. I had recently visited a Toys R Us store and notcied they are stocking Tomica cars and playsets. Needless to say I left with a very full bag.
The Nissan GT-R was a no brainer
While I was in Nebraska assisting my mom with her move and renovation of her new house. We hit a home improvement store that had a toy section for the holidays. And of course I had to hit it and check out the offerings. Well needless to say I came away with some goodies!
1968 Ford Mustang GT
2009 Nissan GT-R R35
Porsche 997 GT3
In support of a good friend of mine in Los Angeles I asked him if I could copy and paste his recent blog about his upcoming collab show. So if anyone out there browses my blog and wants to see some dope photography and chit chat with an A class guy and his wife. Please check this show out! And visit his Blog www.jaebueno.com
When my friend Melloe Won from Brooklyn Projects approached me about collaborating on a event, I agreed to it even before he could finish his pitch. Melloe and I have worked together before so I knew we could produce a sick event and when you add the legendary Brooklyn Projects to the mix who would say no?! We started to plan a few weeks ago and reached out to some great people to help with the event. Sino Tequila will be pouring their excellent Tequila for those of age in attendance and DJ Wrex will be providing the music to add to the event vibe. Clothing brands Labels and Acrylick are also on board with the event. Together we hope the event on 9/25 will be a memorable one for everyone in attendance. There will be a limited edition tee for sale at the event and Brooklyn Projects will be open for business for those of you that want to pick up some new kicks are denim to go with that limited edition tee! This is an all ages event so if the baby sitter cancels on you, bring the kids! I hope to see you on the 25th! Support those that support you! Jae Bueno
Thanks to my Buddie JAY I also came home with some kick ass Muscle Machines stuff he designed/worked on while playing with the toy game. I also was able to score some VERY HARD to come by HotWorks D1 stuff as well as a cool freebie AE86 Initial D ride. Thanks a BUNCH Mr. Jay. These items will be in VERY good company with their other long lost JDM friends as well as displayed proudly!
And the HARD TO COME BY STUFF…. Mr. Jay put alot of hard work, blood,sweat and years into these lines. And I would have to say his hard work was definitely my PEAK in collectiing diecast. ***AND I BLAME YOU FOR EVERYTHING MR JAY!!!*** heh Thousands of dollars hanging out in cases, boxes and shelves. I can add these 2 FINE pieces to the collection!
Never Mass Produced 1 off Birthday Super GT NSX for the Owner at the time of Muscle Machines daughter:

Thanks again Mr. JaY! Who needs SDCC when cool ass guys like you hook a unfortunate idiot like me up! SPEECHLESS STILL!
For the last 4 years I have had my eyes on this certain car which has been hanging out in a friends office. Every time I came in contact with the car I tried my best to unhook this car from my friends office shelf and no go. Well, recently I traveled to his house while I was in California and FINALLY I was able to miraculously PRY this off his shelf. A HUGE THANK YOU to Mr. Jay aka JDMEGO for being super kind in letting me get a hold of this car! What a guy!
Before I left for my vacation I ordered a newly released Tomica?Tomy C-02 Dinoco Lightning McQueen. Once again Tomica makes a quality product that doesn’t disappoint me. Others my get miffed at wheels or size or other things. But for me the JDM toy is perfect and I am glad to add it to my MASSIVE Disney CARS Tomica Collection.
After biting my fingernails for months seeing the UK and Canada getting these little guys I was FINALLY able to find a LONELY case and SNAGGED every single one out of the box. I LOVE the Tokyo Mater stuff!!! It HAS to be the JDM styling for sure!!
****ON A SIDE NOTE I HAD TO BITE JDMEGO’S THEME SO I COULD POST HUGE PICTURES****
