2015 Was The Year Of The Datsun 240Z

2015 was the Year Of The Datsun 240Z. What you see here are the black and white 2015 Mainline cars, the red 2015 Real Riders car, and the silver (nominally) 2014 Cool Classics Series 3 car.
This casting has always been something of a disappointment to me. Even though the car cuts a beautiful profile and a nice head-on view, there is something about the geometry that just doesn't look right when you have the car in your hand, something to do with the way the nose is very flat and not dipped and the way the headlight covers are placed. I can't really describe it, but it doesn't look entirely like the car it is based off of.
When you have all of them together, it is easy to see the differences. Of them all I like the Real Riders car the best. The paint is beautiful and the tampos are not overly busy. It has a nice weight in your hands thanks to the metal base. I personally find the Cool Classics car as disappointing, because despite the nice metal base the car has very poor roll qualities due to a manufacturing/assembly defect that leaves the rear wheels fouling on something.
All that said I was surprised to get the Cool Classics car and the Real Riders car last year. Normally models like that don't come to Canada, and if they do, they get scooped up so quickly the only thing left is Twin Mill things or the like.
