    Aside from the ‘toonish proportions (which most collectors out there DON’T like), these are nicely done. I like the fact that you included two mini trucks which are highly requested by collectors but are hard to come by.

    Can’t wait to find the Datsun and Toyota trucks!

      The first three styles (Datsun 510, Datsun 620 pickup, 370Z) are in stock in the U.S. now so they should be at stores now, too. The next three styles (scion xB, 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO, Toyota SR5 pickup) are expected at the U.S. warehouse in mid-April so they should be in stores by the end of April or early May. However, some larger store chains only do a “re-set” (adding new items) two or three times a year so you may need to wait until that happens, probably in early summer.

    Love the Datsun 620. Just cat find them in any store.

    What stores sell these? I need a few of the Datsun truck.

      They might not be in stores until they re-set their toy departments in late summer or fall with new merchandise. In the meantime, you should be able to get them from — but be sure to specify exactly which ones you want.
