Furuta Confectionary sells 'Choco Eggs' (the Japanese version of the Ferrero 'Kinder Eggs'), a hollow chocolate egg with a plastic capsule inside that holds a toy of some sort. After various series of animals, Furuta released a series of eggs that contains 17 (+1*) different Nissan models in near 1/87, the 'Nissan Collection'. Although listed as Furuta on this site, the toys/models are not manufactured by Furuta, they are bought from either Kaiyodo or Takara. We are not sure who makes the Nissan models, if anyone does, please let us know so we can update this page. Furuta 'Choco Eggs' are mainly sold in Japan, but can occasionally be found in Hongkong too. The models themselves (without the chocolate) are also available from various toyshops and have already been spotted on Ebay as well.
