Long time no update my blog due to busy working and also my house renovation.
This time I review TL0039 Mazda RX-8, a Sport salon car.
If compare with Mazda RX-7, I love the RX-7 body shape but like the creative design of RX-8 Door "freestyle door" ~ after open the doors don't have the center bar.
This TL0039 Mazda RX-8, a metallic Red paint with a real look sport RIM.
A little disappointed because the creativity designed door can't be opened.
Unfortunately Tomica don't produce Mazdaspeed RX-8 diecast, if not sure get it for my collection.
