PGM RWB Porsche Cinderella 70th Anniversary Special Edition

Porsche was formed in 1931 while they didn’t have road cars until 1948. In 2018, Porsche was celebrating 70 years anniversary of their cars on the road. RWB Porsche Cinderella is a real life car in sharp yellowish orange colour, and the RWB Thailand team had modified the Cinderella with the 70th Anniversary theme.

Once again, PGM recreated this lovely yellowish RWB in the 1:64 scale. Opening doors, rear engine cover and front compartment with all the fine prints throughout the car, once again created the wow effect and didn’t get our collectors disappinted. The car itself has all black interior, gears up with printed Mr. Nakai’s imaginary Idlers tires.

If we are to criticize, PGM could improve their cars by giving more detail windshield wipers, and better licence plates front and rear.

Each of this RWB Porsche Cinderella 70th anniversary edition is numbered, and being produced only 1,000 pieces worldwide.

PGM Ferrari 250 GTO

One of the first few cars PGM produced. PGM didn’t upset it’s fans as this beauty was reproduced all the details of this race cars in real life. Produced 1,500 pieces worldwide, they are being numbered individually.

This car 19 was always being displayed at different car shows or gathering (though it was a replica). Top down from the front to the rear, with red, white and blue stripes throughout.

The wheels cannot be roll as it’s mainly serve as a display car. Two tiny screws are being used to fixed the car on the round display case. Just like the other PGM cars, it comes with a car door openers as both doors, engine hood and the rear compartment can be opened. The interior is mainly in black with navy blue seats. The front lights, the rear signal lights, the exhaust pipe, the rims, and basically everything of the real car is now being displayed on your palm. Another great job done by PGM.

Although it didn’t show the scale of the car on anywhere of the box or the display case, we all believe it’s in 1:64 scale.

PGM Sakura RWB Porsche 964 Premium Edition

PGM created this beauty of RWB Porsche 964 in diecast 1:64 model. Though we couldn’t find the actual real car of this RWB Porsche 964 in real life.

There are two versions: the standard and the premium. Standard version comes with a regulator gift box, while the Premium version comes with a round shape roundtable gift box.
Inside is the clear acrylic box. The car stands on (being screwed on) the grey jewellery grade silk pad. As the doors and hoods can be opened, PGM prepared a door Porsche shape plaster opener for us to open those doors.

This car is with double golden stripes from the head to the top. Some sakura patterns on the right side of the top, in black background. The number “40” is shown on the front hood and on the doors. There are some companies logo on both sides of the doors. The Japanese characters “競騎士” is printed on the rear windshield.

The craftsmanship is to the level of brilliant. Such detail print, opening doors, front hood and rear engine cover are telling us the effort PGM had put into creating such a beauty for their collectors.

The box set comes with a metal plate indicating an unique number of this limited run, out of 1,000 pieces worldwide.

512TR is the next favourite car we like the most, among all Ferrari super cars produced as yet.

Similar to F40, 512TR comes with 3 colours – yellow, red and black. The yellow one was exclusively sold at Tomica Shop only. While the red and black were sold to the public. All were marketed to Japan.

Yellow and red 512 TR were released September 2019, while the black one was released in March 2020. If you are lucky enough, pass by the Tomica shops at Japan and you should be able to get the yellow 512TR.

Unlike F40, 512TR has suspension. You can see it’s engine by opening the rear cowl.

Many could see the 512 TR was a evolution model of the Ferrari Testarossa. Tomica built this based on the real cars, both 512 TR and the Testarossa.
