TLVN CTR – worth the premium?
There's high end 1/64s and then there's Tomica Limited Neo Vintage 1/64s. Forget the Greenlights and Auto Worlds and rubber tyre Hot Wheels, TLVN is in a class of its own in the number of details they can pack into something that barely goes over two inches.
TLVN also has a range that fits into the crazy dreams of JDM fanboys worldwide—everything from track ready Hondas to vintage Japanese luxury sedans like Toyota Crowns and Nissan Cedrics get lovingly recreated in 1/64. Costing anywhere between TK 3500 to TK 6000 depending on rarity and limited-ness, TLVN die-casts are an expensive, albeit warranted additions to any collection.
Pros include absolutely crazy details on both the exterior and interior, cons include a slight mismatch in the scale of the details—this particular Civic's badging is too big, while the carbon fiber weave on the hood is a bit too thick.
So, worth it? Absolutely.
