...and Toad...

new this year in Bachmann's UK range:



Put a face on it and presto!



Paint would just need to be a touch darker, and given suitable lettering it'd be an easy model.

No I didn't lock it, that's very strange I wonder why it's locked  Huh? Bach-man?

That's what I thought might have happened. Perhaps we're on to something with this "Bachmann Duck" rumor and Bachmann's trying to keep the word from getting out. Tongue ... Cheesy ... Undecided ... Cool

I don't think it's because of that, perhaps the bachmann thought it just wasn't necessary to have the thread debating about the face, when this thread could be used to talk about it?

Just my thought, could be wrong though..

People can lock their own threads. It's possible that thoasj219 locked it by accident.

True I may have, actually I think I did because if an administrator did it I doubt I would just be able to unlock it.

Yeah, you're probably right. If it was an admin, they most likely would've deleted the whole thread, rather than just lock it.

Yes, I know this is a double-post, but it's on a completely different subject matter. I found Simon's response to a particular Bachmann forum member's opinion interesting:

What are your opinions on this?

I don't blame him to be honest.. the poster of the comments had it coming, this forum can be overseen by anyone, including guests! So it's no real surprise..

True - but Bachmann listed that model as new this year - there are a few different versions from the same molding.

By the way - Ratio has a 20 ton Toad kit that I intend to cut down to 16 tons, and a face from a Wooden Toad.

I'm glad he did to be honest, people are going crazy for no reason. I believe both credible sources people need to be patient it is only the SECOND day of the fair. Calm down.

It was actually one of the 2011/12 releases announced in the range last March, it eventually came out just before Christmas.

Bachmann Duck's official product page:

http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/products.php?act=viewProd&productId=4009

This is going to be the greatest "Thomas and Friends" model train EVER!!! Grin Hopefully the most authentic, as well.

That's epic news, cannot wait. Smiley

Hopefully once a product sample image is put up on the listings, we'll get to see what kind of face he will have.

And get to see how much we will have to pay for him! I reckon around the same as Diesel, so $85 which is around 46 for the UK people.
