Star Is This Real???
Posted by: Super - 02-27-2021, 04:33 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (3)

At the 4:49 minute mark in this video there is a picture of a train I am not sure I have seen before. Could this be real or a custom?

  Tomica World Medium Set 7425 - Tobu Spacia
Posted by: chrisjo - 02-24-2021, 07:01 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (4)

Arrived today, from France. This is the first example of this set that I've seen since one that sold in Spain in 2012, so I'm very happy to add it to my collection. It's not complete, but the minor missing pieces are standard-issue and easily replaced. As Tomica World was active from 1998 to 2002, the train is the original Tobu Spacia that first appeared in 1995.

Star Help Compiling a List of the Thomas Motorized Vehicles
Posted by: Super - 02-24-2021, 12:35 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (8)

Since I don't collect the Motorized Thomas & Friends vehicles, I am looking for help in compiling a List for an Annex to the "How Many Motorized Road Vehicles Are There?"  Thread for those motorized characters.

Would need pictures and a bit of info on each one like year, who made it and possibly the box. Shouldn't be too long of a List as I don't think there were that many but I could be wrong.

  Value of Tomica World boxes
Posted by: plarnold - 02-21-2021, 12:04 PM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (13)

Hi everyone,

Over the years I've amassed a limited Angel  range of Tomica World and Plarail sets.

Sometimes the boxes have been thrown away (in the case of most trains) while some have been retained.

As I am more interested in the contents I am unsure about the value of the boxes themselves. Some are in decent condition while others are absolutely weathered (e.g. fading colours, rips, stickers). The worst ones are generally the sets that were purchased as used sets.

I know there are collectors of boxes and packaging; maybe some lurking around on these forums.

Can someone offer their opinion as to what are the most important factors in determining the value of the boxes?

Is it the printed content?
Is it the dimensions?
Is the quality?
Is the age?
What are the common deciding factors for the value?
Is there a rule of thumb to determine how much some of my boxes are worth (if I were to part with them)?

Thank you BPT!

i picked up this guy from a thrift shop a few weeks ago, and cannot identify him. he is spring loaded... press down the head, the head comes straight back up and the tummy part follows after a few seconds. i know i have seen one before, as the "B" is familiar, but now that i want to find one i cant. [except for one on ebay that has no clues as to the name]

i also got this aeroplane toy. it has a suction cup, presumably for a high chair?. when you press the blue base, the two planes spin around, like one of those press down merry go round toys. this is another one i cannot find anywhere despite extensive googling.

please and thanks in advance, tomy masters. Smile

stumbled on this while googling. there appears to be two versions, but the second one has no mention of tomy on the box or instruction, and the colors are different to that shown on the tomy box. i couldnt find a picture of the tomy set out of the box.

  Tomy Buying
Posted by: Argozyy - 02-03-2021, 01:13 AM - Forum: Takara/TOMY/Plarail/Tomica world - Replies (4)

Does anyone happen to know an online seller on eBay or an online store (cheaper than Amazon) that sells new Tomy track (I.E.) and or accessories such as scenery pieces, and cargo for troublesome trucks.

Hope everyone has a great day  Smile Heart
