    A few people have mentioned one or both of these similar pieces of Thomas rattling around in the box. Refer to the pictures underneath to see where they go.

    The pieces end up near the wings/thrusters on the back of the botmode.

    Looks good but I'm pretty disillusioned with ft. I'll wait until it's released (in three years) and there are reviews.

    Okay good choice on the name. And this is promising. Fanstoys usually makes better season 1 and 2 figures than season 3.
