Time to do another epic post.
We have been waiting a long time to feature the various versions of the Nissan GT-R. We flirted several times with doing it, but when Tomica Limited Vintage announced the Nismo and N-Attack, we figured that would be a good time.
We are finally here. The TLV Nismos were featured early in the week, but it is time to showcase all the GT-R's in the Lamley collection. We by no means have all of them, but the variety we have been able to accumulate keeps us pretty happy.
The only problem with this post is that all the models will be compared to these two:
And that is not fair. So we, uh, pulled them over. Honestly, it cannot get any better than the TLV Nismos. We won't rehash all the details, but needless to say of the entire GT-R collection these are our faves.
So where to start?
Let's start with this: There are six diecast brands represented in the collection, which for us is an oddity. But there is a good reason. We have been searching for a decent 1:64 version of the GT-R, and until the TLV, we never really found one that satisfied. So we tried all different versions, many of which are no longer in the collection.
But we did keep a few, including all versions and variations of the Hot Wheels release, so we will start with those, and use one of the Hot Wheels for comparison. Thereafter, the other brands.
Before we do jump in, here is a quick list of links to these models for sale, if available:
