Tomica has been a driving force in the world of diecast for more than half a century.
Despite turning 50 years old in 2020, Tomica isn’t letting up on the gas, including its long-awaited return to North American retailers.
You’ll find more than 7,850 Tomica models listed in the hobbyDB database. And much of that credit belongs to hobbyDB Price Squad member and Champion Curator SydneyOne64.
Our good friend from down under in Australia is closing in on adding his 10,000th item to the hobbyDB database — which comes with a hearty thank you from all of us Tomica lovers.
With that in mind, we decided to take a look at the Top-10 Most Valuable Tomica models that can be currently found on hobbyDB.
