Tomytec have just announced 2 new items for release in June …

  • The first release is #24 in the People Collection – a set of 12 ‘Shrine People’. It includes a chief priest & 2 shrine maidens, people washing themselves in purifying water, families attending a 7-5-3 celebration and married couples praying for good fortunes 😆

The set is just the 12 figures, with no alternate variations available.


  • The second release is a set of typical narrow Japanese city houses. There are 2 styles, with 2 variations in each style.

Variation A is a 3 floor house with a peaked tile roof and a parking space for 1 car. There is a verandah on the 2nd floor.

Variation B is a 3 floor house with a flat iron roof and a difficult-looking sideways parking space for 1 car !!!

The base size of each is 4 x 5.5cm, and the order quantity for these is in sets of 4 (i.e. one of each as you see above).


The deadline for orders for these two items is FEBRUARY 22 !!!!

  2. The sideways parking space looks easier than the real thing, as there is neither a wall across half the opening, nor 2 or 3 bicycles leaning against the house. Of course, you could remedy both oversights during installation on a layout. 🙂
