Rare & Collectable Bits

Post by DarkTari »

I've noticed a lotta new Pimps askin about "Rare Bits"
1st lets get a few things straight. In the Micro RC Tomy world, Rare are the "Limited Editions".
Collectable are the "Special Editions". Now with that being said, I've re-comprised a list of
"Rare" & "Collectable" Bits so all your inquiries should be answered right here !!!
But remember "Rules" don't apply to all.......


This is what is considered the "Rare":

Limited Editions...


The "NUR" The fastest Bit ever. Only one to come with the "Lucifer" motor (3.0)
Image

The bB Milk Wagon
Image

White Box Honda S2K
Image

The XBox Mitshubishi EVO
Image

The XBox Subaru WRX STi
Image

The Didney Resort Bus (Disney)
Image

The Didney Steamboat (Disney)
Image

The Voltz
Image

The Calsonic
Image

R34 GTR Silver / Gold Bodies
Image

Honda S2K Silver / Gold Bodies
Image

I don't think these were Limited Editions but are Very Rare !!!!

Buttank Blue
Image

Buttank Camo
Image

These are not considered "Rare" but are Very Collectable....

Special Editions......


The Lupin Set
Image

Speed Racer Mach 5 GoGoGo
Image

The TDF Pointer
Image

The MAT Vehicle
Image

The AE86 Sprinter
Image

Skyline History Set
ImageImage

Skyline Black Set
Image

Skyline Special Edition Sets
Image

Auto Modellista Set
Image

Initial D set
Image

Mercedes AMG CLK55
Image

Lamborghini Set
Image

Ferrari Set
Image

Now in my book, Rare & Collectable doesn't always pertain to Tomy's.
There are other Micro RC's that "I" consider Rare or Collectable.
Those that are promotional and/or were very hard to find:


Collectable / Rare Clones......

Nakamichi Hummer

That's sad, I only have one of the rare bits (the Ferrari set, well two of them). I saw one of the MAT Vehicles a while back but passed because I was short on cash, it looks like I should have gone ahead and splurged...I think they wanted $20.

Damn DT, that's a pretty well laid-out batch of Rare and Collectibles. I didn't even know about a few of them.

Don't worry SW, not many have got a lotta Rare bits. I myself only have 3 of the Rare, but I have all of the Collectable Bits :smile:

Nammy ! Good to see you still hangin out! Which ones were you unaware of ?
I didn't think there were any you didn't know about, if we're talkin Bits.
There are so many Clones, I don't have pics of so I didn't mention and prolly don't
know them all anyways.....
Damn Pimp, you've been around here 4eva !! :lol:

I'm surprised how many rare and collectible cars I have, except, now they're probably not collectible, but I bet they are rarer now.

From the Skyline set.

Another from the Skyline set

Last one from the Skyline set.

From the Lambo set

From the Ferrarri set

I couldn't find a picture of the MAT car I converted back to a Mazda Cosmo, but here's my lowered Calsonic.

Wow, the only 'collectible' I have was the LWB UPS Truck. Somewhere there's a thread with the body on an articulated ZZ-M.

I'm jealous, I'd love to own the Ferrari Dino, the Lamborghini Jota, the DeTomaso Pantera, the maybe the Lotus and that modern style bus. Those were some very cool bits.

Great response HH ! Microsizer started making bits that only sold outside the US.
Shame since Hobbico was the US distributor for Tomy.....

This is the only one I never knew exsisted>

Luv to get my paws on one-a-these.......

THX!

It was a Limited Edition of Microsizers General Importer Germany "AMCE". But the box was originally Nissan Skyline Racing Set. It was a promotion for his service to body printing with company logos.

By the way

The Special Edition GT-r Nür is a homage to the Nissan GT-R R34 V Spec II Nür (Nickname "Son of Godzilla"). It has saved many years the lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife (Green Hell) in Germany, for standard streetsports. Ich know because the Nürburgring here is around the corner. :wink:
