TOMY Plarail Catalog Discussion Thread
#1
Hello All,

As you may (or may not) have seen, I recently posted a thread that I was going to be creating an archive of the Plarail/TOMY Catalogs that were released in Japan. You can have a look at the thread and download/view the ones that are currently posted as well as check back for more to be added very soon. In an effort to keep that thread "clean" so it has just the Catalog content it has been locked so i wanted to have a different post where we can like, share, and discuss all of the cool things that are in these catalogs.

The Archive can be found here:

This is so cool and I am excited to have this great research tool at our finger tips. For example I just browsed the 2001 - 2002 Catalog and quickly learned that the rare white DD51 was released then.

Thank you very much Ripley, I know this is a lot of work for you in creating this fantastic archive here, for us and in accumulating all the Catalogs. I for one appreciate your efforts tremendously.

No problem at all Super. I do feel like these can be a huge help to the members in tracking down items, what goes with what, when was this releases, etc... If anyone has any questions or see's an issue with one of them, let me know and i will try and correct.

As of 2/4 i have all of the catalogs that i have acquired scanned and posted in thread. There are a few on order and a few more i am still looking for.

Maybe there are Members that have Catalogs not listed that they don't really need anymore and could donate to the cause...that would be nice. Or maybe there were special Catalogs that were released in addition to the yearly ones.

That would be awesome. And yes there are some additional ones which I will be doing as a phase 2 post after I get the year ones done, but they have either only one year like 2003 vs 2003-2004 on them or are something other than the normal Plarail style that was the original purpose of the thread. I have not gone through them too much yet either but they are in the main picture in the thread for the archive.

I found what look to be Pop Up Scenery Pieces to be interesting in the 1999-2000 Catalog. Don't think I have seen these or heard of any talk about them.

I really like how the prices are included in the Catalogs to compare what some of the now, rare, items went for when they were released.

I am anxious to see that new 2016-2017 Catalog when Ripley gets it and if there is anything new. Is your Brother back yet and is he bringing you other neat stuff he picked up in Japan?

I was thinking the same things on the prices. I only wish I was collecting when they were released. Like look at the Thumper set for 1200¥ and all of the Thomas Characters which now ar $30 and up.

My brother is back from Japan and said he got the 2016-2017 catalog so I am stoked to get to see it. Hoping there is mention of the Steam Thomas set that was brought up earlier in a different tread. I need to meet up and see what else he brought back. He mentioned a colorful Thomas, but not sure if that is one of the Chirin Takero ones or something else. Most of the things I had in my list the Plarail store did not have, just due to them being older or exclusives. He only had a few hours to shop, but may get to go back in a few months. Big Grin

Maybe your Brother can sneak you on the plane as Carry-On luggage on his next trip.
