If you collect Japanese toy cars, you're well aware of the Pikachu toy car. This wasn't a one off dealio.
Japanese toy maker Takara Tomy is running a campaign this summer with Toyota dealers to give away Pokémon mini toy cars as part of a promotion with the new Pocket Monsters feature film.
This month and next, there are three cars up for grabs: a Pokémon Toyota Alphard mini-van, an Oshawott Toyota Porte and a Pikachu Toyota Porte. Go ahead, try to catch 'em all.
Recently, real versions of the cars were on display. Have a look.
