Looking at the older CGI and new AEG Thomases side by side makes me think of the concept of de-evolution! Less than a decade ago, similar looking toys would be sold as “My First Thomas” and aim at act...

I like this person’s stuff! I presume all or most of these are customs and from I can see, the modeling work is very well done.
