I haven't posted a thread in over 6 years and I really don't know if I'm posting in the right location, but here it goes.

I just completed my latest modification "Baby Star Shy Blushing Face Thomas" Tribute. From my understanding,  there were only 360 were made.  What do ya'll think of it?  Please see the photos and YouTube video.

Addendum:
According to Fandom, Shy Thomas was a promotional by a ramen noodles company in Japan.  They produced a snack pack version and its mascot was a little guy named "Baby Star" (see pic below). 

The company contracted with Plarail to make 360 blushing face Thomas' giving the train sets away promoting thier ramen. Thus we get Baby Star's Shy Thomas.

Thanks to trainsRawesome (owner of 1 of the original 360) for telling all of us about this rare Thomas.

Wow...your friend must know his way around an airbrush as those rosy cheeks look perfect. Is the name 'Baby Star' from the show or something you made up?

The campaign was called the:

食べて当てよう!プラレールトーマスでいっぱい遊ぼっ!
Eat and Win! Have lots of fun with Plarail Thomas!

There were four separate rounds in the draw, for each of which there were 90 Thomas prizes. The campaign was under way by September 2011. For the second round the entry had to be postmarked on or before May 15th, 2012, but I don't know the dates for the others.

The 'Thomas the Tank Engine Baby Star Original Face Version' was actually the B prize.

The A prize, of which there were only 20 (5 in each round), was this 'Thomas the Tank Engine Round & Round Bridge Set', which looks remarkably similar to the one that had already been released as a regular product in July 2011.
