I was searching Wal Mart to see if they are selling metallic Thomas, Percy, James and Nia.  I found this posting.  Wal Mart must forget there is something called ebay for tomy couplings.  Without the triangle screw drivers, it will be difficult to remove the chassis.

Not a reputable seller, wonder why Walmart tolerates it?

Walmart's website seems to have a whole lot of strange listings, seems like at some point they let sellers use their website to sell products like Amazon does...

Here's a funny one I saw, the "real" Thomas the Jet Engine

I have a website where I have been writing about and photographing many of the sets and pieces that I find interesting.

That is cute, wonder if the Jet still lights up.


Here is one that is not so much of a shocker but does give a shout out to Muddy Poppins YouTube Channel.
Listing this rare red bulgy the description states "The only other I've seen is in a u-tube video posted by The Vicrage Orchard."

The word RARE is really starting to annoy me. Some sellers attach it to every single item that they offer for sale, regardless. Do they really think it makes the lot more attractive?  Does anyone use it as a search term? I think not.  Here's a cracker described as "Rare pieces of blue track compatible thomas the tank".

LOL...let the buyer beware Dodgy

I agree with chrisjo I wish people would stop using the word RARE.  They do this in New Zealand too on Trademe and it drives me crazy.  There is almost always another listing on there of the same thing, so it can't be that rare.
Yes [b]Super[/b] Buyer beware, but I do feel sorry for the new collectors out there that don't know yet.

Wal mart has sold a lot of questionable products in the past.  I will not elaborate since this is a family friendly website.  So i will leave it at that.

I'd be interested in this Cruise set if it had the green Cranky, but what caught my eye was the Thomas!
