I am showing today four MC Toy cars which represent Japanese models. You can review my previous articles in which I explained some facts about MC Toys here (#390) and here (#391), or you can click on label MC Toy to see everything published about this brand.
I bought these four many years ago and have never been used, that’s why they’re mint. These models look absolutely great. From the perspective of the European collector they’re interesting models, since they’re models which have only been manufactured as a toy by brands like Tomica, and therefore they were difficult to find.
TOYOTA MR-2 (Ref. 8619) and NISSAN MID-4 (Ref. 8737)

This model was equipped with a different type of wheels made only for a few models. It also has some fragile plastic parts behind the cabin, that are sometimse missing.
MAZDA RX-7 (Ref. 8738)

Note the nice tampography work in all four models. Although it was not perfect yet, it was much better than the work of their competitors.
