Plarail TOMY Thomas NEW RELEASES
#1
Hey guys these have popped up on the net, Stephen appears to be tender drive and Connor has a proper coach and a HUGE face! Harvey looks unchanged except for animated face and different colored powered works coach.

I can imagine the earlier coaches that were sold with Connor, might well turn up on ebay, at collectors prices when these new models land in the shops.....
They were funny coaches, in reality, just being a goods truck with a sticky label over it.
The 2014 releases are a far better model.

I thought that those coaches were the cheapest looking coaches ever made when I saw pictures of Connor and the other train like him. I am not a big fan of any stickers let alone ones that depict windows. Glad Plarail has come to the rescue. I am not into the Thomas trains but a string of these coaches would look good running behind any engine,

For some cheering up after the TrackMaster controversy, better pictures have just been revealed for the July 10 2014 releases:

http://takaratomy.co.jp/products/plarail.../index.htm
The product pages for the Thomas Go Out Solid Rail Map and the Let's Create Thomas Rail Visual Scene Set. It shows that you can put the two items together but the layout looks like a waste of what the Visual Scene Set can do with its 18 possible layouts, and a track section is wasted on the Rail Map.

http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140...ainSet.jpg
The Thomas Pounding Mountain Set is an updated Thomas at Roller Coaster Mountain Set. The mountain has a new look with the top section replaced by a sticker and the edges of the tunnels have some new decals. The trucks have been changed to a red log car, and there's a stop track piece in the layout.

http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140...4James.jpg
And here's a close up of the 2014 James. I actually don't mind it as much as I thought I would.

I do not collect the Thomas the Tank line either but seeing as this is a Plarail toy of real life train you can ride and will be running on the Oigawa Tetsumichi railways which is the same service that runs all the SL versions of old Japanese Steam Engines as attractions to the public this train will be a must have especially as I plan to make a layout replica of the Oigawa Tetsumichi lines featuring the SL steam trains for my Tomy Town layout!

The resellers on ebay would have snapped up dozens or even hundreds to resell.
