Mini modification

Ouch....the price!
Looks like something that YouTuber Custom Trackmaster would create. The seats look like they may fit regular sized PlaKids....which reminds me that these look similar to the Disney open carriages without their roofs....and those very well done face stickers/decals.

here are the two mini modifications i have done lately.  Before anybody yells at me for destroying my original Angry Gordon, i want to tell you i only have the face and i don't have the angry gordon's chassis and the shell.  Unless your angry gordon is totally fried, i don't recommend anybody swapping out the face.  the face is glued to the firebox so it took me a lot of time and blunt force to yank the face out.  Like the indignity gordon, I  used Gordon from TS-04 to pull his face on.

Harvesting the exhausted face off the r/c is not difficult. However pulling the smiley face off of the TS-06 very difficult. You have to find a very small flat head screw driver so you can wedge it between the black firebox and the grey face to create a gap. Use a hammer to force the screw driver further in the body and wedge it open. You may have to do the same process for several corners. Remember the toy is designed for kids to play and the manufacturer doesn't want lose parts for kids to swallow.
 
For the exhausted face, you have sand the back so that there is no gap between the face and the firebox. finally use superglue to glue to face back to the firebox.

for all the trackmaster modification i have done over years, click on my flickr section:
