As we told you when we announced the Black Friday Sale at Japan Booster, you should grab what you want from that sale, but don't close out the purchase until the second part of the sale started.
That second part starts now. This is Japan Booster's first ever Tomica Limited Vintage "Damaged Box" Sale. As you know, TLV's come in a small box, and to many, the condition of the box is just as important as the condition of the model inside. For others, like we here at Lamley, box condition doesn't matter, as long as the model is without flaws. For those of you like us, this sale is for you.
Japan Booster is listing its inventory of TLV's with damaged boxes, and they discounting them from 20% to 50% off. For models that are rarely discounted, this is an amazing sale. Plus, as always, all TLV orders over $50 qualify for FREE SHIPPING. This is easily the best deal for TLV for anyone outside of Japan.
And included in this sale are some highly sought-after models, including the Datsun Wagon, Toyota Land Cruisers, Porsche 911, several Nissan Skylines, Toyota Corollas, and even those fantastic large Hino Buses. You can see them all here:

And hurry, because these models will go fast. There is only one of each, so you want to act quickly.
Here some (and we emphasize "SOME") of the models to look for:
The Black Friday Sale at Japan Booster starts now: Huge savings on Tomica Limited Vintage & Kyosho...
We have heard from many of you that you love the Tomica Limited Vintage models we feature, but are waiting for the right time to jump in. Well, if you are one of those people, your patience has paid off.
We are very excited to announce the Black Friday Sale at Japan Booster. This is the time to stock up on TLV. Our friends at JB are offering a 10% discount on many of the most popular TLV models, as well as 10-30% off Kyosho Lamborghini 5 and Ferrari Racing 2. This means many TLV's you have had your eye on, like the 510 Bluebird, Hakosuka Skyline, Isuzu Bellet, and DR30, will be the cheapest they have ever been at Japan Booster.
And the kicker? All TLV orders over $50 still get FREE SHIPPING! That has always been the case at Japan Booster and they will honor that throughout the sale. (Keep in mind any combined shipping with Kyosho will require the minimum shipping fee.)
So head over to the Japan Booster store ASAP and see if what you are after is still available. All sale models are marked as you scroll through, and you combine with non-sale items as well. They will go fast. You can find all the sale items here:

And one other thing. Stay tuned to Lamley throughout the day Friday, because a little later the Damaged Box sale will start at Japan Booster as well. That means mint TLV's in damaged or dirty boxes. That means models like the Datsun Wagon, Toyota Corolla, and Porsche 911 will be marked down as much as 50% from their regular price. And yes, shipping is FREE on these orders over $50 as well.
So here is what we suggest: Grab what you want now, but don't pay until you see what you can get at the damaged card sale a little later in the day. Then you combine your orders for free shipping. But grab what you want now, because once they sell, they are gone...
We hope a lot of you take advantage of this, and please share with us what you grab...

For those of us in the US, it is time to eat some turkey, enjoy the cool weather, and express what we are thankful for.
And here on Lamley, we will stay true to what we do best, and show a few photos of models we are thankful for this year. We hope you share some that you are thankful for as well.
But before we do, a little bit on something else we are thankful for. If it isn't obvious already, Lamley isn't Lamley without our partners at Wheel Collectors and Japan Booster. We have been incredibly lucky to have partnered up with two of the best diecast sellers on eBay. Wheel Collectors has been with Lamley since the beginning, and we have grown together. Japan Booster came on a bit later, after it was obvious our Tomica Limited Vintage obsession was only going to grow.
We can't stay on top of things without them. It takes a lot of work to put together features daily, and both Japan Booster and Wheel Collectors make sure we have the models to photograph, and the news to share.
So do we "hype" their listings? Absolutely. It doesn't mean you have to use them, it doesn't mean you have to like their prices, but we promise that if you do buy from them, you will be satisfied with the experience. Both care about their customers, and want them happy. It makes it very easy for us to recommend them.
So thanks Matt & Matt at WC and Akiyo at JB for helping make Lamley what it is...
Now on to the good stuff:
