Those are statix displays from coasterdynamix.com. You can get the yellow coaster car for 20 bucks from here:
$15 until Dec. 31. Busted!
Check the other style links at the bottom of the page. 3 styles (millenium, dragster, and maverick), 3 color options for each style, all $15 thru end of Dec.
Wow those cost me a LOT more. I had to order them from overseas. Couldn't find them anywhere in the states when I ordered them and the guy at the company said they were out of production. That sucks. And I had to buy a case of them!
OH WAIT NOPE!!! Those ARE NOT the same. I did get the last of the ones I wanted!!! I wanted the wooden one and the one that looks like the yellow and blue one on the translite and playfield! The Millennium Force one is not right AT ALL.
They add so much to the machine. Like I said, I have more of them and the perfected mounting system. PM if you're interested in either one.

Has anybody ever switched out the troll?
We switched out our troll. You just unscrew two screws to remove the dunk tank, then it's just a couple of little zip ties to remove the troll. If you're talking about changing it for something else, don't let my wife hear you suggest that! They have ones with different color hair at Marco Specialties. We also had a custom 2 piece turn of the century style bathing suit made to match mine. You can see it in the picture. I think it turned out great!
Yeah, the troll just never made sense to me and has always bugged me. I don't know what I would switch it out for just curious in case I ever got one. Great looking mod though, I think it looks great and I usually hate mods.
The train mod was first posted 5 months ago by EchoVictor but he put it over the yellow rails on the right side of the pf. I bought one a little while later for $15 with free shipping. I then took it apart and with a very small brush detailed it, even the wheels and spray painted the front of the seats sparkle silver. Here are a couple of pictures.
Nice paint job on the coaster.
The troll always bugged me too, I'd rather have almost anything else, even that old dancing Six Flags guy.

Very nice! I like the wheel paint.
In all fairness I never saw his post and I've been sitting on the boxes of the ones that I bought since last April. Just never had the time to get it done. So this mod might have been "first posted" 5 months ago, but it was "first conceived of" (and hinted at in another thread) by myself looong before that!
I bought up all of the remaining stock of the nice yellow and blue ones because they are the only ones that look like the coaster on the translite and playfield and I figured others would want them too. The only other place that has that model is a website in Denmark, but they are $32 plus overseas shipping. I have 3 of the yellow one left with custom free floating mounting hardware, and a bunch of the woody left. PM if interested. Not really making money off this, just want to unload what I have to people who will appreciate it!
Well if ya snooz ya loose. Might be able to sell the rest of them on ebay to non pinsiders.
