Cool! Always like to have plenty of figures to choose from.

Nice figures.  I think it's kind of interesting that the guy in the blazer looks quite Japanese in one photo, and quite Caucasian in another photo.  Different heads in the set?  I like the scooter, too.

A selfie girl? Suddenly I'm no longer interested in any of these people. :angry:

I’ll be buying this for the scooter . I can’t recall the Vino being in any of the car kits or even the scooter multi set

So it would appear, the box notes suggest as much 🙂

This brings back a lot of memory from the time I built the original set when I was still in primary school.  It is interesting to compare this new set from the old one.

- Eventhough the boxart still shows a university, instead of the brats from prestigious university districts you now get everyday folks that are equally at home in Shibuya.

- Tennis is out, VAN branded paper bag is out, the preppy look is out.  Tapioca milk tea is in, guitar is in, selfie is in.

- Instead of 2 guys and 3 girls, you get one guy and 4 girls now.  The facial expression is also far better in this new set, I wonder they were modeled from 3D scans like the figure in the Toyoda AA and the ND Miata.

Figures look great, love the fact they included a gig bag for a guitar! Can see that ending up inside a few builds.

On second thought, I guess we're lucky that the other four don't also have their heads buried in their phones. :lol:

The little scooter and all the other accessories are just as interesting as the figures.

Tamiya has done a full run of 1/24 scooters . They were bonus parts to car kits, and available as a set of 4 . They also did a run of 1/12 scooters .... ask me how I know 😂😂😂 it’s an obsession ....

It's the same with the hoodie girl, it appears.

I'm certainly interested in a set. One can never have too many figures to choose from for their dioramas.

If they come to Australia I will be getting a couple!  Good to see a rather international approach to the styling.  About the only  thing I would foresee modifying is the long skirt on one girl - not something we would normally see around our streets.  Everything else is very contemporary and the phone, as much as I hate to say it, is "on-trend" and the sort of thing that a non -modeller will get a big kick out of when they see it in your diorama.

Cheers

Alan
