SPENCER COLLECTION – Thomas & Friends

All of the Spencer locomotives I have in my Thomas & Friends collection. I realized I am missing some talking versions which I really want to get now. Will look for those for the next Spencer update

Fisher Price Toy Haul

Got the new SpongeBob SquarePants Thomas Minis and new DC Super Friends Thomas Minis. Also light up Percy Take N Play that looks pretty cool. Finally got the new Talking James and Talking Diesel from the Great Race.

Percy Mail Train – N Scale

This N Scale Train by Tomix is one of my favorites! Percy comes with 4 facial expressions that you can change out (and put on upside down if you want!) and looks great! Comes with a Sodor Mail red wagon. Got this on eBay and was in excellent condition! Look forward to doing a Percy the Small Engine collection update!

THOMAS vs YODA

 

The EPIC battle between Thomas the Tank Engine and Legendary Master Yoda from Star Wars. Need we say more?

LEGO ELECTRONIC TRAIN – Set 118 from 1968

This is one of my favorite LEGO sets. It is rare and hard to find in working condition and it is very old like me! From 1968, it uses a mic (actually brick with built in microphone) and a electronic circuit brick (clear so you can see the circuit). It connects to the motor and battery pack (common for that time) and then you can start and stop the train by blowing on the whistle! We tried the Thomas whistle but it is not high pitched enough (will upset dogs with the LEGO whistle)!

Murdoch vs Gordon

Viewer suggested that I crash my Honrby Murdoch into my Bachmann Gordon. This is what we did:

Power Trains Batman Gotham City Set

Set is garbage but we tried to make lemonade out of this limit. Cheap thin cardboard buildings that are a pain to assemble and the train is junk. It would not stand up to extended play.

My Complete Thomas & Friends HO/OO Scale Collection

This is what I have so far that runs on HO scale track for my Thomas & Friends characters made by Hornby and Bachmann. For this video I did not include the Narrow Gauge stuff since I do not yet have a narrow gauge section on my layout – working to change that!

The collection has really grown in the past year and some of the locomotives have suffered from the abuse and rigorous play that we have put them through. Which is your favorite character we have?

James The Red Engine Collection

Collection videos have quickly come to be one of my favorites to do. It actually takes a long time to get out everything and set it up, plus I have to deal with the cat, but in the end I like the results. So far with our Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends characters we have done Annie & Clarabel (which needs to be updated), Percy the Small Engine, Emily, Gordon the Big Engine, Connor, James the Red Engine, Henry the Green Engine, and I am sure I am forgetting something. What characters will be next? Why haven’t I done the Thomas collection yet?
