What is a Muddy version? Something you made?

It's one of the engine variations they did for a special 3 pack, similar to the Skarloey covered in holiday lights

Has some "mud" splattered on the engine

Muddy Ferdinand is much more often seen on eBay UK than the original 'clean' Ferdinand.

FactCheck: There are currently 8 Ferdinands on there, and all of them are the muddy version

#6 I thought Muddy mean't he made a Custom Ferdinand and called him Muddy LOL.  Rolleyes

Thanks all for the information. I was hoping for a version that didn't have those blasted holes in the wheels. Undecided

I think most of the Fisher Price and late HiT toys engines had holes in the wheels. It's the way they use to package them, by passing the ties through the wheels.

Actually, only Fisher Price did that (and still does even though the packaging changed numerous times). The 2010 (dated 2009) releases were held in differently, so they didn't have the holes until 2011/12.

Yes, I know why they did it but it was a terrible idea because they look terrible. this day they still have the holes in the wheels even though they changed the packaging years ago where they no longer use the sticks to hold the train in the packaging. To this day, even TM2 has them....ridiculous. Dodgy

Thanks LaG

I see that this one by Ucwepn without the nasty holes is the version I am after. Much better packaging where the clear plastic is molded to the shape of the train. Now the trick is, finding this version.

Found one that runs great and doesn't have the nasty holes in the wheels.....honestly....I can be such a dolt I was going over this and preliminarily going over what I could do to customize it...I realized...what the heck am I so concerned about holes in the wheels anyway...I am probably going to swap out all the wheels for a different color anyway...
