Rarest Plarail/Tomy Trains
#46
(09-04-2015, 04:20 AM)Gerisplarail1 Wrote: I have also spent hours upon hours researching Gold Thomas, and U.S. TnA Diesel 10, for Muddy and my own personal curiosity (some of you know when a Tomy question pops up, I research it until I find the info I need) I can say I 100% believe they do not exist.

And from everything I have seen thus far Muddy's Top 3 rarest list is spot on!

I would like to update this thread...Since its posting, Monty has been located and does exist. Also many T'nA Gordons and Henrys have also begun to surface, as have many Donald and Douglas snow plow sets, though no Alfies have been seen at auction in over a year now, while Thumper has also been seen only a few times...AND a front hook Splatter has been ID'ed.
I am rating these based solely on my own personal experiences over the last six years of collecting, and acquired information and observations of the auction markets, and of other collections.
So I am re-ranking these rarest Thomas Characters as:
1.) Monty (non-motorized) *8
2.) Alfie *0
3.) Thumper (non-motorized) *4
4.) T'nA Henry/T'nA Gordon (tie) *5 each
5.) Front hook Splatter (non-motorized) *1

(*)numbers I have seen in the last year.
Play nice & have fun!!Smile

That's a good idea Tharazero!!
It has been over a year since this has been updated...
While quite a bit has changed, other things have remained the same...

1. Gold Thomas (*2)**
2. Flip-face party flag RC Thomas (*1)**
3. Blushing Thomas (*1)**
4. Alfie (*0)<<<
5. D-10/Lady chase set (*2)**
6. American T'nA James (*3)**
7. Thumper (*3)
8. D&D snow plow set (*4)
9. Monty (*5)
10. Front hook Splatter (*5)
(*) These are the updated numbers I have seen strictly in the last year of 2016- to present)
(**) Added since 2016

Though the T'nA Gordon and Henry are still considered rare, I have seen too many to keep them on this list.
>>> NO Alfie's have been seen at auction for well over 2 years now!!
Play nice & have fun!!Smile

Yeah, at a very low price as well, it might be fake

If it is the same one I am watching it is real I believe. I am not bidding on it but have bought several things from this seller and discussed his items a couple times. He purchased a large pallet of toys and these were in there. There have been a few TnA D10, Powerful Gordon, various Red/Green coaches, and lots of other Plarail. The last one they sold it only went for $41 I believe which was a BPT member who outbid me.. Big Grin. I already have one but for the price I was going to go for another one..

I thought the first Powerful Gordon Mike said the first thing to look for to tell if it is an authentic Powerful Gordon was there had to be chromed weights visable through the cab windows and this listing looks like it has dull metal weights. https://www.blueplastictracks.com/showth...hp?tid=748

I don't think I have anything new to add but I am sure that in a few years that we will be adding the chrome/silver Steelworks Thomas soon to be released as a prize of which only 100 will be made.

We could add in ourrarest rolling stock submissions.

I would like to nominate Clear brown Annie. Clarabel is easier to find but Annie, for some reason, is rarely seen. I believe both were a prize given away for a short period of time for certain amounts of train purchases. I think it was 3 qualifying trains at participating Tomy/Plarail Stores. I also believe there was 2 different promotional giveaways with Clarabel being the easiest to attain. There was a discussion here https://www.blueplastictracks.com/showth...ight=clear

Hmmm, maybe you should start a Thread dedicated only the rarest or hardest to find rolling stock.
