Others Initial-D Cars That I collected (non Tomica's)

Here is the other type or brand of Initial-D movie car (mostly Toyota Trueno AE-86). I know sometime we collector's do go for some type of car that we like and end up buying all type and all kind of the same car for collection and fun to look at. I like one of my friend like Nissan Skyline and he buy all the different of the same car loose and carded. Reason that he say is just love to have a lot of the car he likes.

The first AE-86 is made by Kyosho (1/24 scale). It is a plastic die cast body shell for a 2WD RC car under Mini-Z Kyosho. It come with two set of light, one is up just like the one on the picture and another close up.

This body kit come with bracket to hold LED for the front and back light which operate according to the car being control. When it was going forward, the front LED will light up and when you break, the rear light will light.
But for this Initial-D AE86 I did not put on any light yet. But on my other (normal) AE86 RC body kit I manage to put on 10 LED to simulate the real car lighting.

I brought at Toy Quest at Mid Valley 2002. Now Toy Quest has change it's name and move to Time Square.

The second AE-86 is made by Hot works (1/24 scale). It is a metal die cast body with a lot of accessories and to change with, ie racing bucket seat with belt, the white cup on the dashboard, sport rim, adjustable chamber and car height, and others.

This AE-86 is made by JADA Toys, die cast size 1/64 scale (on the bigger side) Picture speak for itself compare with Tomica AE-86.

This is the REAL-X is 1/72 scale first edition Initial-D car set. It is a plastic die cast car, small yet very detail. This set is an earlier release which does not come with top cover just the base. :(

This REAL-X Initial-D set is sell in a complete cover up small box, without any form of indication which car you will get.(Tikam style) In order to get them all you have to buy the hole box which have 8 boxes in it. You will have two repeated car in it. If you are lucky you will get an extra AE-86 black top like my friend did.
I did saw the second edition Initial-D car sets sold in one of the local hobby shop, but did not manage to get it before it was sold out and now I only hope that Toy City will bring it in some too.
I brought my set at the Action City, when they just open an outlet at 1U. (it is the last display

This Choro-Q vision was brought at LHS, just for collection. Hehehe...
