This thread will be dedicated to the currently-rumored-yet-plausible announcement of Bachmann Duck the Great Western Engine (see link here: http://thomasmodelreview.blogspot.com/2012/02/im-great-western-and.html).

This includes (but is not limited to) discussion, opinions, and updates of said topic.

I, for one, believe the announcement is from a reliable source; however, I'm holding back my excitement until an official word from Bachmann Trains is released. What does everyone else think?

I agree with you, I don't want to be let down but I think it is legitimate. The only question I have now is are there more engines? I hope so. I think there are too they most likely were not mentioned as that artice was just about Duck.

To my knowledge, Bachmann has always released 2 or more Thomas engines within a 1-year period (with perhaps 1 or 2 exceptions), so I'm guessing that there are more items to come. Of course, I certainly wouldn't mind if Duck was 2012's only new Thomas item. Cheesy If there are more releases, then my best prediction is still 'Arry and Bert. My wish, however, is that Bachmann would release Oliver to go along with Duck.

Guys I don't think we should trust rumors. Simon refused to actually give out a source to the actual info he received. It may be a hoax, it may not be, but we can never know for sure until Toy Fair.

Most likley because of an agreement, like some things on SiF. But I agree let's not get our hopes to high, but for the record I think it's legitimate.

I think it would be wise for now to just wait until we get the real deal from Bachmann, unless it's actually been confirmed first hand, i doubt Bachmann would tell only one individual about a fourthcoming release and not announce it to everyone.

Bachmann isn't the only company who knows what will be released. HiT is in charge of that, and SiF gets updates on the Thomas world first hand from HiT more often than not. Simon is part of SiF, so if they were told about Duck's announcement through HiT, then it's true. I'm not saying that that's the case, but it seems more than believable to me.

*EDIT: HiT no longer owns Thomas & Friends. Mattel does, I forgot Tongue

Hey, I noticed that the "Duck's Face" topic was locked. Did you do that, thomasj219?

Fair point, but, id rather hear it officially from Bachmann and get an official release date, because more often than once have rumours been posted all over the web about who is and isn't being made, you only have to look around a lot of the forums and other internet sites (I.E. Youtube) to see that false claims have been made regarding new products.

Once an official declaration has been posted, I'll happily look forward to whatever model is being released!

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

EDIT: I was able to unlock it but I wonder why it was locked in the first place. Maybe all the model makers at BACHMANN were reading it  Cheesy that would be nice.
