Question Another 'I Have Not Seen'???
Posted by: Super - 10-09-2021, 12:32 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (4)

Did I miss something or is it just old age? I have seen the Disney Action Advertisement Car (blue one) but I am not remembering ever seeing the Yellow 'Zoo' one. Can anyone share some info they may know of on this?

Which brings up another question:
How many of these rotating Ad cars have been released. I think there was also a Fish one too but are there more?

Star Lunch Goods Gift Set???
Posted by: Super - 10-09-2021, 12:04 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (8)

Lunch Goods Gift Set

Not sure if I have ever heard of this set before let alone seen one. The engine in this set looks unused looking at the negative battery terminal but what was in the missing parts on the left side inside the box? Was it something edible? Was there other sets released in the Lunch Goods line? Anyone seen or know more? I love the combination of these contrasting colors on the the engine except for those dang yellowed wheels. I would definitely be swapping those out for a set of grays or even a set of Thomas/Gordon/Edward colored.

  Tomy Train Gearbox parts list - request
Posted by: Jayjay21 - 10-06-2021, 01:07 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (3)

Hello everyone,

What a nice little community I've stumbled into, I'm hoping you'll might be able to help me.

I've got the itch to repair and refurbish my old Tomy Trains (Red No.12, Green No.78 and Blue intercity 125). 

Reading over the more common issues and fixes I've come to the realization that my gears are really beyond repair, to many cracks, the timing is off up and down the gearbox, its not really a gearbox anymore more of a click&snap box. I'm opposed to using donner units as it kills one train for another.

Does anyone have a convenience list of the full gear set in these old units?

The Pins, rods and springs are in good shape, so they can remain, its really the gearing. unless the timing issues are also releated to housing wear. The plastic on metal pin mounts grinding and wobbling, (how tight should the pins rest in their recesses?

Thanking you for any help you can provide.

  Clear Annie
Posted by: TrainsRawesome - 09-27-2021, 09:26 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (2)

Has anyone else noticed the huge uptick in Plarail Clear Annie listings over the past month or so? At one point they were virtually impossible to find, then they started popping up every now and then, but, I kid you not, I think I have seen a total of over 10 clear Annies listed on Mercari in the past two weeks! Anyone have any ideas for why they are suddenly appearing more?

  Having trouble with my talk n action James
Posted by: nickr2d2asome - 09-21-2021, 07:32 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (2)

So recently I was able to purchase the U.K version of a talk n action James but he seems to be having some issues, he seems to stall on inclines and sometimes on the flat sections of the layout. I've tried to switch the motors out for a standard tomy Thomas motor but he seems to still have the same problem and I don't know what is up. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or what to do?

  Completed Talk N Action Percy Set
Posted by: TheDiamondDalek - 09-15-2021, 02:27 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (5)

After only a few months of collecting the Talk N Action engines, I have managed to complete the full Percy set, with the British version arriving today in the post, I will make a post about what else came in the lot later, this is my 6th Talk N Action engine I have managed to acquire which means I am somewhat close to completing the set, the Japanese Percy looks the way it does as it has been dismantled for repair and may be used to fix the British version which is not moving but is talking, there is also a problem with the reader, hopefully I can fix this! -Dalek

  Talk N Action D10 variation
Posted by: OwenDino Studios - 09-04-2021, 11:45 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (8)

Hi all,
I recently got 2 talk n action diesel 10’s, and I found a slight color variation on the claw and diesel 10 mustard color. The white lines are also a bit transparent on one. It is like Toby where he has a paint variation. Anyone know anything about this? Thank you.
