    Default TakaraTomy Tomica Hyper Rescue/Blue Police

    So, anyone heard of this stuff?

    Some of you may have heard of Tomica, which is one of the original Matchbox/Hot Wheel 3" metal car manufacturers. Great stuff. They just celebrated their 40th anniversary.

    So, the Hyper stuff, which is Hyper Rescue and Hyper Blue Police are like larger vehicles that contain and integrate with the standard 3" vehicles. They also include little men (two big to fit into the 3"ers, but great to drive these larger vehicles). They're all basically transforming playsets. The level of functionality is amazing.

    I stumbled upon them in Sogo, a Japanese department store I frequented in Hong Kong. I was blown away, and thought some of you might appreciate them too.

    Here's the TT website for it:

    I got these two sets for my son and they're great fun:

    http://www.takaratomy.co.jp/products...8_02/index.htm (Helicopter only)

    The level of integration between all the sets is amazing. They're all really modular. You might notice that each set has these convertible containers that all do something different. They're all completely interchangeable. Also, most can combine to form ridiculously large vehicles:



    So anyone else heard of these? Got any? Want to know more?

    Unfortunately, at the ripe old age of 3, my son is the same. I want to buy more, but for me.

    They look really cool, especially the police Lambo.

    They also seem very familiar. Would they happen to be the same modular toys from late 80s/early 90s that could all connect into incredibly long monstrosities? I remember they joined by small black plugs about an inch wide with a male and female connection. Even the small vehicles could combine with the large ones.

    Hmmm... not sure about that other toy. Would love to know what it is if you can figure it out. The vehicle to vehicle connector on these is virtually identical to the backpack connector on Classics Jetfire.

    they look awesome!

    what you need to do with 3 year olds is give them hotwheels, teach them how to look after it. This will give them (and you) a chance to play with something you are passionate about. Once they master that, you can "loan" the tomica to them

    I'm buying one of these next month.

    From Takara Tomy, part of the same series of toys.
