Resident Evil 2 mod turns Mr. X into Thomas the Tank Engine

If transforming Skyrim's dragons into trains from Thomas the Tank Engine (opens in new tab) wasn't enough for you, now you can also alter Mr. X's visage into that of a smiling demented Thomas. Following on from popular mods that made DMX play when Mr. X approached (opens in new tab) and the unforgettable one that showed us what he's wearing beneath that signature trenchcoat (opens in new tab), the latest mod from the meme factory not only turns Mr. X into Thomas, it adds his theme music too.

It's the work of modders ZombieAli (who made the model for Thomas), and DJ Pop (who added the music, and previously made the X Gon' Give It To Ya mod). You can download the model here (opens in new tab) and the music and sound effects here (opens in new tab). And of course, if you want to combine Thomas with DMX, that's an option too (opens in new tab).
