Die cast cars and figures have always looks good, I mean it’s colourful, often comes with a theme like Disney, Star Wars etc. We came across some really cool ones during our holiday trips to Hong Kong and Japan. Took the plunge to buy them (they are not cheap!).
Star Wars – Japan
These were purchased from 7-11 and after getting the realised it’s quite limited as you do not find them in retail shops like Toy R Us.
From what we understand this is one type of stormtrooper but not the regular white ones. They are called the Shadow stormtrooper.
We think this vehicle here needs no introduction right? It’s Darth Vader himself pulling a truck 😀.
Last but not least is the greenish R2-D2. Dun ask me why they come in green, maybe because 7-11 corporate colour is green? Nonetheless this is quite a cool piece.
Star wars – Hong Kong
We came across two figures from Hong Kong which has a “Not for sale” message printed on the box. Needless to say we grab them immediately. True enough these are quite rare, at least based on what we see in Carousel Singapore.
The Shadow stormtrooper is in die cast material, fully black and comes with a weapon. Likewise the R2-D2 is also in die cast material.
Product: Star Wars Shadow Stormtrooper

Product: Star Wars R2-D2

Overall we find it quite fun and interesting to acollect these figures and vehicles. It is inexpensive and gives you another objective when travelling. We will continue to lookout for cool stuff and post here, please keep a lookout!
