Tomy USA Debuts New Products For The Tomica Vehicle and Train Line at Toy Fair
New York, NY (February 13, 2011) -In September of 2010, Tomy USA brought the highly successful Tomica line of die-cast vehicles and trains from Japan into the US. At Toy Fair this year, Tomy will debut some exciting new additions to the Tomica line. Tomica is a line of collectible vehicles, trains and accessories that includes die-cast cars, train sets, accessory sets, destination sets, and deluxe playsets. What makes this road and rails system unique is that all the toys can be connected together to create a Tomica city for hours of imaginative and building fun!
The new items making their debut at Toy Fair and available this spring include new die-cast cars and new playsets. First are five new single-pack die cast cars including a Toyota Coaster, School Bus, Toyota Mark X, Komatsu Power Shovel PC200 Galeo, Nissan GT-R and Mitsubishi Triton. Each vehicle features realistic styling and will be available this spring for approximately $2.99.
The Tomica Dual Packs include two die-cast cars and two Tomikid figures. The Tomikid figures are fully articulated at the arms, legs and head and designed to coordinate with the theme of the included vehicle. The Dual Pack assortment includes the following cars: Nissan X-trail and Nissan Diesel Quon Aquarium; Subaru Impreza WRX STI and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X; Mitsubishi Pajero and Suzuki Swift Sport; a police-themed Light Armored Vehicle and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X; and the fire-themed Toyota Himedic and Hino Fire Truck.

To make the Tomica line accessible to more US consumers, Tomy will introduce an entry level playset that includes everything a child needs to connect and play. The Load and Go Set features a cargo train with two loading containers and a delivery truck -- combining the road and rails in one fun set. The delivery truck has its own road that snaps up to the cargo bay to offload its cargo onto the train on the rails! The Load and Go Set includes a car, train and Tomikid figure and will be available this spring for $19.99.
The new Deluxe Accessory Set includes many of the most popular Tomica accessories introduced last year, packaged together in one large pack.
