On the Wikia page I looked at it said this under the "Trivia" section

Quote:A flip face version of Gordon was seen on the boxes of some of the earlier TrackMaster products by HiT Toy Company. This however, was never released.

A few flip face Percy MIGHT have slipped out, as it was recalled because of lead paint...I've had it on EBay search notifications for 5 years now, but have never seen one come up.
Play nice & have fun!!Smile

Wow, that is good to know muddy, I might look out for one for you, did trackmaster do the same with a trackmaster flip face Gordon?

As far as I know Gordon never went to production, but Percy was made only to be destroyed...the fact that it is on the Fisher Price recall list for lead paint, leads me to believe that some did get out...maybe even sold, but at least left the factory to have to be recalled.
Play nice & have fun!!Smile

Nearly every TrackMaster (HiT Toy Company) set or destination released in the US. There would be the same recurring graphics on the sides saying, "Start with any set, add another destination, add more engines, coaches, trucks, and cargo". In fact, here's a image of it: [Image: latest?cb=20150529055138]
The layout in the bottom image also featured a level crossing that took some time to get made. The UK boxes by Tomy replace this image with the James, Percy, and Toby three car packs.

In the first edition of the 2007 Fun Guide, Flip-Face Gordon can be seen on the front cover at the then yet to be released Knapford Station.
