The Dyipne (Japanese: ジプニー, Jipunī, also known as Jeepney in other languages) is a Mini 4WD REV car released by Tamiya in June 6, 2019, initially exclusive to the Philippines.

It was created to celebrate the 2019 Mini 4WD Asia Challenge that was held in Manila, Philippines.

General info

The Dyipne, as the name implies, is inspired by the Jeepney: an iconic form of minibus originally derived from the Willys Jeeps left by American forces just after World War II.

In line with real-life jeepneys, the Dyipne comes with flashy decals adorning the bodyshell. The sides show a silhouette of the driver and its passengers, along with the Lils Hobby Center logo, the "Asia Challenge" logo in brush script, and the Hyper-Dash Motor logo amongst other things, and place names showing the jeepney's "route"–Quiapo, Makati and Parañaque, while three silver-coloured horse figurines are perched above the bonnet.

The kit comes equipped with metallic silver, small diameter low-profile A-spoke wheels paired with black low profile tires. The chassis frame and the A parts are molded in black and red respectively.
