TrackMaster Snow Freddie!
#1
I just found and bought a “canceled” Snow/Icicle Freddie! Can’t wait to have this item in my hands. Coincidentally, I found this just after watching Tons’s awesome new video on this very item! Attached are some photos of the one I bought.

The same item with the same photos is still being listed on Mercari Japan.

A quick machine translation of part of the description gives " Freddie with a very unusual design with snow. It's too rare and there isn't much information, but it's probably I think it's a story version of Freddie called "The Party Surprise" that will hold a party for Colin. "

Hopefully the bad reviews on Ebay of not having items purchased will not hold true with this T-Raw purchase.

@TrainsRAwesome, you got it? Incredible! That's a hefty amount of money spent however, I hope you have some left over from this purchase, as you know money is vital for collecting these items

@Super I have purchased from this seller before and have had all positive experiences.

@Dalek Yes, I have some money left over from this purchase. I would never spend everything at once (unless it’s something I’d never see again, such as a Gold Thomas).

Right! What a mystery this has turned into. Was this item ever even cancelled? The version that TrainsRawesome purchased has no stickers near the face (the same one that was listed on Taobao) but Gordon's has stickers there... Could one be a knockoff and the other a real deal? Could this have been an EXCLUSIVE item to a store? I really don't know. Whatsoever if you could ask the seller where they got him from; it would be very helpful. Now we need to see what packaging this came in to semi complete the mystery!

I would assume you have the real deal as the seller also owns a lot of normal snow engines. They also have this eyebrow variant Freddie?? I don't know what that's about but i'm not willing to stir another hornets nest

That theory could very easily work...Actually it does very well. Hmmm

Exclusive to a certain store... Hmmm... What if it was exclusive to a certain country like Monty?
Right, time to infiltrate every Polish supermarket!

Both versions have the official Mattel licensing info underneath, so I would think they are both real (maybe one is an earlier prototype version and the other is the “final”). Also, I believe the eyebrows on that one have just been rubbed off a lot lol

@TOT I asked the seller, but unfortunately they don’t remember how/where they got it.

to a certain degree, it is not complicated to make another snow freddie.  youtuber, "Custom trackmaster" basically scanned the body of a engine and print the sides with paper stickers.  To be fair he has a special printer that can cut the stickers into fine precision.

@Chrisjo The Mercari listing now says “sold.” I’m guessing it was the same seller as on eBay, and they ended the Mercari listing once they realized the item had been purchased.
