Scion xB

Super Tsunami

Again this series is not available outside of the US, as to why i've no idea. Am lucky that Mattel Malaysia did a Promotion in 2007 called "HOT BOX" (will feature this article soon) which include a Mystery cars that enable me to complete them. Include are some photo of the 2008 Mystery cars that i got and wants. Enjoy.
