I see Tomix/

TomyTec Co LTD

is in the latest Walthers flyer.

102 items listed. Including some Fine track, suprised me there.

 

I'll try to think positive, and say this gives

TomyTec Co LTD

some exposure in the U.S.

Just looked at walthers website and they list 102 Tomytec items for sale which is very nice. However, I was disappointed at the pricing which by my math is at least 20pct above MSRP. This was surprising given the devaluation of the yen. Hector

But how often do they adjust versus the exchange rate?

MB kleins is now stocking tomytec. The walthers msrp is about 75-100% markup of the Japanese list unfortunately... About what I figured Walthers would do this, when they get ahold of product the prices go up. It will be interested to see how we'll things stay in stock, they tend to like doing large annual bulk purchases. But with these prices things may stay in stock...

 

I'm guessing with large bulk orders Walthers likes to do the exchange changes won't factor in much once they set a msrp.

$14.95 for  a Tomix 5531 controller.

Way to introduce Tomix to N.A.

 

walthers is walthers is walthers.

 

Yeah, just like they handle(d) Marklin.

Wait a while and they'll have to dump some Tomix products.
Won't be 'great prices' , but decently priced on certain items.

 

And the game will go on till Tomytec contract ends and they

can get out of this.
