Tomica Pocket Cars

I liked the Tomica cars when I was a kid because of how realistic they were. I also liked the opening doors. But these days I have to say they seem to lack a little bit of the soul of the Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars of the same time period. Still, I have some pretty nice examples from my childhood collection.
