Conclusion

These FJ models are going for crazy money currently (Jul/06), because it’s not available as regular releases in North America. I got mine for around 175USD, which I think is too expensive. Mind you, this is a superb model, but not 175USD superb. If you want the other 3 colours (silver, red, yellow), you’ll have to go for these dealer versions, as the regular ones only have blue and black. For most, I think waiting for the regular blue/black is a better alternative, unless you MUST have one of the other colours.

Great exterior, shutlines are slightly disappointing though

Adequate engine detail, but could be Toyota’s own fault for covering most of it.
