  Remake: Seibu Railway New Red Arrow 10000 series
Posted by: Super - 01-07-2020, 03:59 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (2)

Looks like Plarail has re-released the Seibu Railway New Red Arrow 10000 series this month as a site specific purchase. Looks like its only available at the Seibu Railway Station Naka Convenience Store. Looks to have the new type motor chassis by the looks of the on/off switch placement.

Wonder what all the Collectors think about this re-release as the original Plarail Red Arrow was a prized possession including mine with an extra middle car. This certainly drops the value of the original. I might be interested in obtaining one if not just to compare the two. Unless a YouTuber is kind enough to make a comparison video.

Ask and you shall receive. Here a YouTuber does a side by side comparison with the old version at the 7:17 minute mark. Except for the big body side clips on the engine I think I am prefering the original to the new release. Wish I knew what this fellow was saying to see if he has a preference.

I can no longer access Kabothu's Plarail Room, one of the very best sources of Plarail information up to about 2001 or 2002. It was OK about a week ago.

It was at:

Making a backup against this happening was on my to-do list. Did anyone else get this done before it was too late?  It was the one that hosted pictures like these:

  Original Benkei Too Tall?????
Posted by: Super - 01-01-2020, 03:04 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (5)

Was the original Benkei so tall that it had to come with riser extenders to make it under? The original was much bigger than the later re-release. Can anyone translate the instructions printed inside the cover of the box pictured below?

Question Not Seen This One Before!
Posted by: Super - 12-20-2019, 12:12 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (7)

I don't think I have seen this Vintage Plarail/Tomy release before. Since it has the vintage Boy & Girl Logo it had to appear between 1967 & 1981. Not sure exactly what it is called but there looks to be two versions, one with a white roof and one with a gray as this seller shows. What I find interesting is that its not a friction drive but axle driven. Might this have been a very limited release?
