Toyota FT86 Special Custom by Kahla International
I came across Kahla International some years ago as I buy my Tomica from Japan frequently. Just some time ago, I saw a set of 370Z in Ken's Garage custom by Kahla. I was interested in the Red Bull 370Z only but Ken is not selling the cars individually. I gave it a miss as I am not prepared to pay premium for Tomica which are not considered "official" by Takara Tomy. Kahla International is a custom shop based in Japan. All the Kahla Tomica are based on existing current release and heard that each design is only limited to 300 pieces. I need someone who knows about Kahla to confirm the actual quantity. I have to say that the tempos are professionally custom to look more than original. I decided to hang on till a Tomica model which I felt is worthy for me to cash on. Last week, I saw a Kahla Toyota 86 and decided to buy my first Kahla Tomica. The Kahla Toyota FT86 arrived from Japan yesterday together with many Tomica. I have the chance to get different designs of custom Toyota FT86 while I was in Wonderland in Yokohama last December but I was too engrossed with vintage and rare toy cars you can't get in Singapore and some are hard to come by even in eBay. I could have completed my variant collection in December (minus the TL Toyota 86 as it was just launched the day before Wonderland) but honestly speaking I was having second thoughts then, measuring between custom new toys and vintage rare cars. This FT86 is nice but I still prefer the Red Bull 370Z. Will I buy another Kahla? Why not? But, selectively.
