    There was a very limited 1:24 scale Slate Met.(painted stock steel wheels)Promo release early last year,something like 10 units?
    There was only one sold on eBay and it went into triple digits

    Mattel* wont touch it,and Miatso* cant secure authorization

    I live in Eastern IOWA within a stones throw of both Ertl Collectibles and SpecCast Replicas and if they produced a die-cast Tundra I’d have one.

    Problem is Toyota refuses(to date) to release a License to any of the Diecast Manufactures
    I was a Diecast vendor for 16 years but have long since lost all connects to that world.
    Look for Miasto to be the one to hit the market with one first,they usually get the jump Action/RC and Ertl

    There was this one at easter time that was posted by someone. It came from Mega Toys I believe. I contacted them directly, but didnt have any luck.

    I have a few AutoArt 1:18 scale Lexus cars (06 GS430 in Matador Mica using actual Lexus paint and an 06 IS350 in black). I paid a pretty penny for both of them (at wholesale price of course because I had that connection) but would LOVE to get my hands on a Tundra DC for my collection. I have a lot of others in 1:18 scale that are not as good quality (Maisto, etc.) but I would like to see a good quality Tundra come onto the market sometime!

    Here is the one my sister got me when she was working at Toyota. She got it signed by chief tundra engineer Yuichiro Obu

    Sorry for the crappy pic. I haven't taken a new pic of it since I've been keeping it at work.

    Sorry for the bad link the first time, fixed now with imageshack
