Online Selling Shockers
And it's not just Dodge. All the items from the $3725 bundle are also listed as individual lots by that seller, apart from the Diesel 10 box. Very naughty.

About time I found one that reminded me of this thread's existence. A Wooden Railway Elizabeth, but the tipper has been replaced with a jail cell and she has a LEGO City prisoner. Found by ThomasWoodenRailway (Keekree24).

(I'm not a buyer, so I edited out "Seller you bought from"). Whatever the incentive to make this mod was, let alone charge $9.00 for it, I knew it deserves to be here. Like, if they really wanted to replace her tipper with something else instead of recreating it, why couldn't they make a connection to the real life Elizabeth at Weston-super-Mare? Even the face could've been kept on because it carried her face numerous times (and happened to be turned into a bus when the character was new). But no, their imagination had to go straight to prisoner transport. Unless it was one of their children, of course.

I actually bought this version of a cheap knockoff Plarail fake back in Dec 2019. I mainly bought the set for the bridge that lights up and has sound. After removing all the parts I wanted to keep off the train, mainly all the black wheels, motor and battery holder, I kept the bridge, threw out the rest of the train and sold the layout parts. Total price I paid...including shipping...$9.99 from Amazon

Tomy acquired the rights thomas that mattel desperately wanted, Mattel responded by purchasing hit entertainment as a whole for 176million or so dollars. Still had to provide the contracted rights to tomy and still continues today.

Not so much a shocker as the stuff of nightmares. This could be a caption competition. What is this poor unfortunate kid saying to the loving relative who knitted this for him?

Looks like they had to repaint the whole face for whatever reason. I initially thought they made a cast of it because of the texture, but it must be the paint they used. If I were them, I would surely use my ol' cotton bud handle trick for the pupils, redo the eyebrows and/or apply gloss to the new paint. Apart from that, this is nowhere near as bad as the real "shockers" on here.
