We at Top Gear Philippines love the Mazda 6. It's enthusiast-centric and drop-dead gorgeous--just two reasons this is our 2013 Car of The Year. The Subaru Forester XT, meanwhile, is one of our all-time favorites because it gives Euro compact utes a run for their money at a fraction of the price. It certainly would be nice to have these cars in miniature form. We're eager for Takara Tomy to add them to the Tomica lineup.
That's exactly what we just came across on the Internet, and we're happy to note that these have been available locally since mid-January. And they've been selling quite well, with some stores already having to replenish their stock. The 6 is available in signature Soul Red and Dark Blue, the red naturally being the more desired color. The Forester XT, on the other hand, comes in black. Oddly, the silver variant isn't available, and there's no word if it ever will.
New Tomica releases are now priced at P200 each, while older stocks (until supplies last) are P180 apiece. These collectibles are available at toy stores and select department stores.
Which one will you get? Or why not both?
