Train in vanity

April 4th, 2017

There are currently seven and a half billion people on this planet. Statistically speaking, that’s a large enough number for there to be three or four people out there who are devoted fans of both model trains and the gimmick-driven, sludgy glam rock of Kiss.

Well, I’ve got some good news for those rare creatures. Your ship has finally sailed in…

…provided your pockets are deep enough to float the $320 buy-in cost.

The “free” track and controller set is a bit odd, as it presumes a buyer who hasn’t already dabbled in the realm of HO scale hobbycraft. But, hey, what do I know? I’m not the genius who combined such obviously complementary concepts as tiny toy choo-choos and shitty shock rock.

I’m sure the value added will be much appreciated by those nighttime rockers/daytime partiers who will spend hours watching the locomotive run a tight loop on the floor of their furnished basements, the sounds of a warped Dressed to Kill LP drowning out the constant stream of collection agency robocalls.

And should you prefer your small-gauge thunder to come from Down Under rather than Detroit Rock City, an AC/DC themed train set is now available for pre-order. I would not suggest buying this model, however….

…as it makes great deal of noise, can’t seem to build up any steam, and seems hellbent on speeding over the nearest cliff.

    I’ve got my fingers crossed for a commemorative SUPERTRAIN set.

    Kind of intriguing to see what market research indicates retirees with disposable income are most interested in seeing.

    Wasn’t sure what would come along to replace John Wayne, but it’s a safe bet KISS wouldn’t have been my first guess.
