Thomas and Friends Tomy Trains Collection

One thing about me is that I like to collect things. I’m not a hoarder though. Hehe. Some of my collections are stamps, coins and banknotes (collection still in its infancy), Hot Wheels cars (also in its infancy), books, and 1:500 scale diecast model aircrafts.

In this post however, I’ll dedicate to my Thomas and Friends collection. This collection was started pretty recently after a birthday present by my other half. I now have about a few Thomas and Friends set, which I intend to assemble all together, once I move to a bigger place!

Some of the characters from Thomas The Tank Engine that I currently own are Thomas, Harvey, Skarloey, James, Molly, Percy, Salty, and Donald. They are all from the Tomy range.

I might also get the Thomas and Friends collection from the Hornby range (a much upscale brand for adult collectors) a bit into the future.

Okay, enough babbling. Let’s look at some photos and a video.

First up, the Thomas Mega Set track layout.

And now a totally different track layout.

Here’s also a video of the second track layout with Salty working very very hard 🙂

Here’s a question for you. Do you reckon it is possible to keep these toys for years to come and then sell them at an inflated price? Hmm…

  1. :)didn’t know you share the same love my little boy has on these tommy trains

  2. Haha. I may be 21, but I still enjoy toys and anything related to toys 😛

  3. well, is always good to stay young in heart 🙂

  4. Exactly. An adult needs to know when to kick back and relax as well. Some people wind down by going to clubs and pubs but I de-stress by collecting/playing with toys 😀

  5. hahah….you are funny! My son can be thankful I don’t share the same de-stress liking as yours. Or he will have me as his strongest competitor, instead of his sister, to fight for the toys

  6. wow! you have that set?! I’m sure you are going to be the envy of lots of kids! LOL! hang on, you are not planning to sell it later are you? 🙂 well, I know scale models and figurines can be sold at inflated price especially those limited editions.

  7. I’ve got a few other sets as well sting. Perhaps baby zen can swing by my place to play with Thomas. Haha 🙂

    Nah, I don’t think I’ll be selling them later on. I might share them with my kids in the future. Though I’m sure they will only be allowed to be at the sidelines watching!

    Yeah, you can really make money with limited edition items.
