Thomas & Friends most amazing fake Thomas The Tank train set to date. This Tomy ripoff has the auto-crossing level crossing piece and the Tomy toy car road system. It's an elaborate clone toy which has amazing Thomas & Friends box artwork to lure in young children. This toy train playset is a reminder to me of how large the older style of Thomas playsets used to be. The powered car and road system was very much part of the Tomy era of these toy train playsets. For a knockoff toy this was very expensive. On the surface this toy is very impressive until I start to look closely at the Thomas The Tank and accessories. Seeing a Tomy styled Henrietta included was different and that strange steam engine coal tender shouted to me classic dark side. The toy car had a very sensitive switch and needed to be constantly turned on after it failed. The absolute surprise was the auto-crossing level crossing which is a large set piece. Once the stickers were applied this railway crossing looked amazing. Nowhere on this knockoff toy is licensing info related to Tomy or the owners of Thomas The Tank. Another very strange aspect ot this set was the upsize Thomas and cloud speed design on the side of Thomas The Tank. This seems to be a rip of the 3 Speed RC Trackmaster Thomas The Tank. Sure I have one and tried to let it play on this ripoff playset, but all that happened was confusion and delay. Anyway I give Trackmaster 2 Thomas a spin to see how he can spice up this very weird knockoff toy. Scary when you see how good it can get, yet the very high price was a bit of a shock. I feel a set like this is only worth $30, $40 absolute max, considering it's illegal it's real value is $0.
This nasty knock off dark side toy is a strong reminder to us of the excellent quality seen in the real licensed Thomas and Friends merchandise, it really is worth paying that little bit more to have toys which are designed and built to last. In no way can I endorse these knock off products seen in this video, they are low quality and often have small parts which easily break away.
