Fast and Furious series is one of the most popular car based action movies series! These movies are know for those crazily tuned cars and impossible stunts. Of all the cars in the movie, cars that Dom(Vin Diesel) and Brian(Paul Walker) drove are the hottest! Dom is an American Muscle car love were else Brian is Japanese car lover mostly drives Nissan or Toyota cars that are tuned for special purposes! So these diecast model cars are very famous and a must have if you love this movie series. I started collecting Fast and Furious cars recently and this Toyota Supra in white is Brian’s send off car so holds special value in my heard. Lets unbox this Furious 7 beauty, shall we?
I got this beautiful diecast Toyota Supra from a WhatsApp friend who maintains a diecast car sale Facebook page(Car Collective Online) I found this model interesting and enquired about the availability! He said “In Stock”, which got me going… He shared some conversation on quality, defects etc. and some discount for “Thanks Giving” weekend so I grabbed them on a special price! Though the model came in this Amazon package but its not from Amazon.in, I guess the seller reused some Amazon box lying around! Packaging was spoton thanks to those extra layers of bubble wraps!
The original Jada Box in which this Brian’s Toyota came is slightly beaten but its ok as most of the model that I pick here in our toy stores are usually damaged(yes mostly) and that is just a part of life in India. Going forward, this box is almost identical to other 1:18 Jada diecasts cars that carry Fast and Furious badge. As you might know already, that this is my third Furious 7 diecast model(I already have a Brian’s Nissan GT R R35 and a Lykan Hypersport) in 1:18 scale
The unboxing experience is identical to the other two Jada F&F series cars sitting in my display case! Yeah the same old package, same old sturdy frame that keeps the car from moving here and there! This Toyota Supra is fastened by four screws to the main frame as other models and the doors are kept intact via three transparent elastic band.
Once this Furious 7 Supra comes out it looks sexier than ever… Yes end of the day this is a car that Brian picked to drive in the movie so it should oooses style and performance. And being a custom tuned car it should stand out in subtle way as this is one of those car that makes you feel light. This car gets everything bit of performance kits like a super sized spoiler, chrome alloys, skirts all around and a performance tuned engine!
I personally like the Nissan GT R (previous entry into Furious 7 stand) more as it screams performance and this Toyota Supra is subtle and works really well for a quick sneak! The chrome wheels gives a bit of aggression that it needs to supports those crazy horses!
But those carbon fiber hood, blackened alloys and those massive spoiler easily wins and tuner contest without breaking a sweat! Do let me know your pick from these two. And finally this GT R matches Brian’s outfits so I guess Brian would pick this as well!
But variety is the spice of life right?? So I took this and also this is the car Brain drives into sunset so this has to be in my collection. Finally I am relieved that this car is off my “Must Have F&F Car” list. This Toyota Supra works really well with any figurine but I prefer pairing with this Brian figurine because they look cool. I have my full review planned for this Supra by early year along with Brian figurine that you see here. So hold your horses and stay tuned… Ciao.
