Does anyone think that Flying Scotsmen will be made? :-\


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on February 28, 2008, 10:52:43 PM
No I highly doubt it, Hornby did make him, but Hornby obviously could make the Flying Scotsman easily with a face on.  Bachmann however, probably wouldn't do that as we never got to see the Flying Scotsman in the TV series (Despite the fact we saw his tenders in Tender Engines), so it is not gonna happen. 


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on March 01, 2008, 01:53:40 PM
That's what I said, I said Hornby did make him, Bachmann didn't you must have misread my post :P

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: DealAjani on March 01, 2008, 06:37:58 PM
personally, all I'd want is Stepney. And anyways, I'm going to London this summer, so he won't be too hard to find.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 01, 2008, 09:56:50 PM
I think it's about time bachmann did 2 railway series/TV accurate characters like flying scotsman & city of truo.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Michael on March 01, 2008, 10:32:17 PM
Well, I like what Bachmann has done so far.  Salty and Edward are what I am looking forward to.  I would like too see some more S7 engines soon.  (Arthur, Murdoch)  But Mr. B has to say so.   


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 02, 2008, 01:14:13 PM
Speaking of S7 characters by bachmann I wish to buy arthur,Fergus & murdoch.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on March 02, 2008, 01:46:47 PM
I personally think that Arthur has a higher chance of being made.  Murdoch is somewhat possible, but I am not so sure on him due to his popularity being kinda low in the current sizes.  Plus it would be very hard to make such a big engine, I am not saying though it's impossible to do though. ;)  Fergus though I HIGHLY doubt he will be made because of how he was only shown in one season and then never mentioned again.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Michael on March 02, 2008, 01:55:26 PM
Fergus I doubt will happen.  He hasnt showed up since his debut.  I could see Arthur though.

I recall seeing a prototype of murdoch from bachmann's UK range.

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on March 04, 2008, 01:28:52 AM
I just want diesel.
Go slap a Hornby Diesel face on a Bachmann Class 08.

*bricked*

In my honest opinion making your own Diesel won't really help.  Remember what happened with Henrietta and Salty as a lot of people made their own models of them before?  Then Bachmann makes them for the 2008 range, which surprised all of us.  I would personally wait until Diesel is released by Bachmann and I think at this point Diesel is very possible. ;)


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 04, 2008, 07:59:26 PM
In other words don't make existing thomas characters from scratch because you may never know when bachmann announces the characters that they would create themselves.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: metal4life on March 05, 2008, 04:43:15 PM
I think people should be inspired to make their own models of characters. Remember how topkazfatt's Salty came out? and take a look at his other customs as well. Despite if the character comes out or not, I've seen a lot of Arthur, Salty, Murdoch, Lady and so on being made. And surprisingly they have come out somewhat impressive because of their modeller's sincere pride and motivation into taking matters into their own hands. I'd say it's pretty well-going on thier behalves. Back On Topic :P


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 05, 2008, 06:23:24 PM
I think that's called getting spoilers.
Anyways I would like:
Harvey

Silly billy

You want the Old Coaches,don't you?


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: metal4life on March 05, 2008, 10:41:54 PM
Who doesn't? With Edward coming out, don't you think they'd make his coaches to go along with him? Thomas got Annie and Clarabel, Emily gets hers, Gordon gets the Green Express Coaches, and Edward gets the Old Coaches.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Diesel #261 on March 07, 2008, 04:03:33 AM
What about these ones?

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: DealAjani on March 07, 2008, 09:47:56 AM
meh, those are the old generic style coaches used in the firs few seasons. Those would be good, but they are almost like a repaint of Annie and Clarabel. I actually wouldn't mind just taking the red coaches and sharing them between Edward, Henry and James. Edward has his branchline so as he's not really an "express engine" per say, it's not that important to me whether or not he has special coaches to call his own.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 07, 2008, 10:30:24 PM
Old coaches sound like a great idea & I would love to see bachmann create old wagons from S2 of thomas & friends(the ones diesel tried to pull).


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on March 08, 2008, 01:37:07 PM
Actually,there were other coaches just like Annie and Clarabel.They were the
same yellow-orange colour.In seasons 1-4,possibly part of 5,Annie and
Clarabel were a brighter yellow-orange.And there were at least 3 other
coaches like them,featuring in James and the Coaches and Edward's Exploit.
They were also pulled Henry briefly in Tenders and Turntables.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 08, 2008, 04:37:30 PM
I said I would love to see bachmann create old wagons from season.2.

Alright, just calm down and forget about it. BOT.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on March 08, 2008, 10:17:21 PM
I was talking about the coaches that look JUST LIKE Annie and Clarabel,bar
the faces and names.Annie and Clarabel used to be a bright yellow-orange
until at least Season 6,possibly up until the HiT Entertainment takeover.In a
few old episodes they seem to be a somewhat dimmer yellow-orange or bright
yellow,but that's due to the lighting and/or possibly re-painting mixups.The
other 3 yellow-orange coaches weren't used very much and never needed
new paint.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 09, 2008, 10:06:54 AM
Enough of the coaches now back to the wishlist

Engines:
Duck
Diesl
Daisy
Boco
Flying scotsman
Bill & ben(2-pack)
Silly billy
Whiff

Rolling stock:
Old wagon(Series.2)
Low wagon(Series.3)
Forset wagon


Title: Re: Wishlist thread

Well this is the wish list thread not the coach thread & you can talk about more than coaches like wagons or engines or maybe your wishes for the next bachmann range.

Railwaypark you're not in charge of what we talk about. This thread is specified for WISHLISTS. We are discussing what things we would like to see, and that means we can suggest almost EVERYTHING in the series. If you don't like it, LEAVE. That simple. BOT.

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: LastQ6 on March 10, 2008, 03:14:52 AM
I'm in favour of Devious Diesel being selected for a new model, we have Mavis now as well as Salty who is arriving later in the year, but Diesel would make a good addition to the diesel locos.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Michael on March 10, 2008, 12:58:20 PM
Actually that is a very good idea you have there LastQ6. 


Since we have two diesel engines coming to our railway families, a devious guy would be great to have a antagonist to our stories (err um layouts).   :D


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 10, 2008, 07:19:45 PM
Yes!!!!!Now that's what I'm talking about & there is more to wish for than just coaches. :D


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on March 10, 2008, 08:59:01 PM
That may be true that there is more to life then coaches, but that still doesn't give you a good excuse or a good reason to say what you said earlier, because in this thread we are free to discuss whatever we would like to be made by Bachmann for the Thomas range.  So in the future please keep opinions like that to yourself. 

BOT

And yes, I would definitely like to to see Diesel being released by Bachmann.  Also, seeing how popular he is becoming and how easy he would be to make it is very possible. ;)


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on March 10, 2008, 09:45:53 PM

Correct!

Such tooling would be unprofitable for Bachmann. Engines would share the same chassis, and non-moving eyes would be present.

I can see Stanley coming, along with Diesel.

You know what guys I might as well go with stanley since only the standard guage engines are more popular. ::)


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Railwaypark on March 20, 2008, 09:09:43 PM
- Personally, I would like to see Bachmann have some more buildings, for example, the carrige shed seen at Tidmouth in Season 4 commonly, or the one used in Season 1 and 2.
- I'd suggest a Tidmouth Sheds itself, but it'd be possible that it'd be based off of the new shed models, which I really don't like the looks of.
- Its less likley, but buildings for a dock scene would be very nice. The docks have been a common scene in later seasons, and Bachmann could for example do Thomas set like boats, and cranes. Seeing a Big Mickey model would be nice, and truth be told none of the children who watch the show today know that the crane dates back to 1989 as that character indeed.
- Necessary buildings and scenery needed to do Knapford (Tidmouth in the Railway Series) Station, including the brick land wall to go right down to the last detail.
- The show seems to have changed from long ago, I think Bachmann would be able to make some bridges that fit the show.
Me too.

How many times have we gone over this? It's not that hard to understand! I highly doubt that you are working for Bachmann, so basically, unless you buy their company, you cannot influence anything they do most likely. I'm not trying to be mean, but I've noticed that things like this have been getting on people's nerves.

Alright, this is stupid.  How are you going to say that?  Ya know, people have other things to do than post all dang day on a board.  We have lives!!!!!!!!!  

Anyways...
I can say this now though about future items...   We all know that the steam team is done so we got any exciting arrival to come.  It has got to be either a new engine or a engine we would never expect.  Harvey maybe?  Or then again...  Murdoch?  


Title: Re: Wishlist thread

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Edward2 on June 26, 2008, 10:44:51 PM
I would consider these guys: Whiff, Donald, Douglas, Devious Diesel, Arry and Bert, Oliver, Toad, the green Breakdown crane, plain red coaches, Murdoch, Harvey, Rocky, BoCo, Bill, Ben, and Duck.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on June 27, 2008, 12:39:09 AM
Ah well I'll tell you my opinions on the rest of the ideas for you like I did in the other thread earlier. :)  (This is including the other ones from what I posted in the thread.)

Whiff - Doubt it, he was introduced to the series last year, so I don't think it is likely.
Donald and Douglas - Again, not very likely.  I know they recently had an appearance last season, but I think that them being made into Bachmann models is unlikely as much as I would to see them get made. :(
Devious Diesel - VERY possible.  Diesel has had more recent roles in the newer series and I know for a fact that Bachmann UK makes Class 08 models, I wouldn't be surprised if Diesel was made next year TBH.
Arry and Bert - Same with Diesel, but Arry and Bert haven't had as many roles as Diesel.  Overall though, I think they might get a chance.
Oliver - Unlikely sorry to say.  Oliver hasn't had an episode to himself since Season 7 and hasn't really been mentioned much ever since.
Toad - Same as Oliver, so it is unlikely.
the Breakdown crane - It's possible, but I am thinking that maybe instead of the breakdown crane Bachmann would make Harvey or most likely Rocky.
Plain Red coaches - Very possible.  Bachmann has made various different types of rolling stock, so I think with so much rolling stock already made, these coaches are very possible. ;)
Murdoch - Possible, but I'm not having high hopes.  Like Donald and Douglas, Murdoch only had one episode to himself in Season 7.  He did have a role in Best Dressed Engine though and Percy and the Magic Carpet, with the cameo in Emily's Rubbish.  Plus Murdoch does seem to be somewhat popular, and I am pretty sure I saw his prototype in Bachmann UK.
Harvey - Possible.  He has had plenty of episode appearances, but he somewhat has been replaced Rocky as Harvey only made one episode appearence in Season 11 (Thomas and the lighthouse), but then again maybe in season 12 he might have more attention. 
Rocky - Very possible.  Rocky has been really popular into the newer series so I think Bachmann could make Rocky, but I am sure it would be hard to do.
Boco - Unlikely.  He hasn't been in an episode since Season 5 (Double Teething Troubles), so I don't think it will happen. 
Spiteful Brake van - Never.  The Spiteful brake van only appeared in one episode and gets smashed in the end.  It's not gonna happen, I can promise you that.
Bill and Ben - Definitely more of a possibility than Donald and Douglas as they have made more recent appearances in the later episodes.
Duck - As much as I love Duck, I don't think it is possible.  He hasn't made an episode appearence since Season 7, I know he made an appearance in a music video in Season 10, but that doesn't count IMO.  Even if his prototype is made on Bachmann UK, I don't think it will happen. :(

Ah well I'll tell you my opinions on the rest of the ideas for you like I did in the other thread earlier. :)  (This is including the other ones from what I posted in the thread.)

Whiff - Doubt it, he was introduced to the series last year, so I don't think it is likely.
Donald and Douglas - Again, not very likely.  I know they recently had an appearance last season, but I think that them being made into Bachmann models is unlikely as much as I would to see them get made. :(
Devious Diesel - VERY possible.  Diesel has had more recent roles in the newer series and I know for a fact that Bachmann UK makes Class 08 models, I wouldn't be surprised if Diesel was made next year TBH.
Arry and Bert - Same with Diesel, but Arry and Bert haven't had as many roles as Diesel.  Overall though, I think they might get a chance.
Oliver - Unlikely sorry to say.  Oliver hasn't had an episode to himself since Season 7 and hasn't really been mentioned much ever since.
Toad - Same as Oliver, so it is unlikely.
the Breakdown crane - It's possible, but I am thinking that maybe instead of the breakdown crane Bachmann would make Harvey or most likely Rocky.
Plain Red coaches - Very possible.  Bachmann has made various different types of rolling stock, so I think with so much rolling stock already made, these coaches are very possible. ;)
Murdoch - Possible, but I'm not having high hopes.  Like Donald and Douglas, Murdoch only had one episode to himself in Season 7.  He did have a role in Best Dressed Engine though and Percy and the Magic Carpet, with the cameo in Emily's Rubbish.  Plus Murdoch does seem to be somewhat popular, and I am pretty sure I saw his prototype in Bachmann UK.
Harvey - Possible.  He has had plenty of episode appearances, but he somewhat has been replaced Rocky as Harvey only made one episode appearence in Season 11 (Thomas and the lighthouse), but then again maybe in season 12 he might have more attention. 
Rocky - Very possible.  Rocky has been really popular into the newer series so I think Bachmann could make Rocky, but I am sure it would be hard to do.
Boco - Unlikely.  He hasn't been in an episode since Season 5 (Double Teething Troubles), so I don't think it will happen.

Bill and Ben - Definitely more of a possibility than Donald and Douglas as they have made more recent appearances in the later episodes.

To put more to that...

Diesel: Bachmann UK tooling too detailed, lower detailed model like Lionel possible?

Arry/Bert: Use diesel moulding, so very possible. If lionel's sell well, Bachmann may...

Break Van: Very Possible, as all it is is a face on a caboose. Scruffey's story was the same :p

Red Coaches: Annie and Clarabel

Bill/Ben: Possible, as both use same toolings.

Sorry to conflict Chaz, but that is what I think.

I can see it now, Diesel and Salty for 2009...   (if Diesel is announced)

Other than that, I could see Arry and Bert, Arthur, Molly, or Murdoch...

As for rolling stock, there isnt that much left except for: Boilster wagons, Toad, Dark Blue Trucks, Closed Van, Mink Van, or the Breakdown Train... 

I would like to see Trevor, Terrence, Lorry, Butch, Jack and Alfie though, take alongs just dont cut it to me...  :P

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on July 05, 2008, 02:47:11 PM
The pack sounds like a great idea in all, but maybe not all of the pack.  I think (If they do make the pack) they probably won't make all of the characters.  I am sure if they were announced Jack and Alfie would probably be made.  Just remember guys Bachmann focuses on TRAINS, so therefore that's why I don't think all the characters from the pack are all possible.  That being said though, the main characters from the pack I think may have a chance. :)

Remember the Bach-man did say there may be more announcements down the road, so I think if another loco would be made it would most likely be Diesel.  But who knows, the Bach-man might surprise us. ;) 

Arry and Bert would be possible if Diesel was made first, it wouldn't make much sense if Arry and Bert were made before Diesel. :P

Murdoch and Arthur sound like great ideas as well.  Molly I am not so sure about but again you never know. 

Also Michael you got a point there, Bachmann has made so much rolling stock I think they might not make so much now.  Also as a response to Toad, it does sound possible but like with Diesel Arry and Bert, it would seem silly if they released Toad without Oliver. :P

Oh and James the Brave, it would be great if they fit on the well wagon so who knows if they are announced maybe they could fit on the well wagon.

Arry and Bert ( two pack)
Duck
Molly
Nevile
Dennis
Harvey ( with working crane arm)
Deisel 10 ( with poesable claw, a.k.a Pinchy)
Donald and Duglas (two pack)
this list could go on forever. To shorten it i'll just say Every Engine, The pack, on and off road vehicles, the narrow guage engines. its been shot down before by some people but we have to see what the bachmann thinks before it gets shot down by rude people.

Me, Sparks, Jack, and a few more members have all said this before and I will say it again, the chance of Bachmann making the Narrow Gauge engines or all of the characters coming out for that matter have slim chances of all being made.  Characters that you have mentioned like Duck, Bill and Ben, and a few others sounded like great ideas, don't get me wrong but Billy, Neville, and Whiff don't seem as possible, but maybe later on if they start getting more popular.

ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
DO I HAVE TO SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU?!
1. They don't make HOn2, and aren't going to start anytime soon since its an obscure scale in this country, very few model it, and they already are pleasing the narrow gauge crowd with On30, and Fn3.
2. So many more people buy their Spectrum Equipment as opposed to the Toy Thomas Equipment, which is why they don't announce as much for Thomas as they do for their other HO equipment.
3. Its an obscure line in the show, so why would they focus on something seen less often.
4. It would require thousands of dollars to make the molds for something that won't sell well.
5. They'd have to engineer another line of track for the HOn2 stuff to run on.
6. HOn2 is too small for the market of small children that Bachmann is aiming to sell to.
7. Stop asking for "The Bachmann" because he wouldn't know if there were plans, having already stated what is planned to be released next year.
8. He would tell you what I told you.
9. If he hasn't responded to you yet, but has read the thread, you'd think he'd have thought that one of us has already addressed the issue.
10. STOP ASKING THIS QUESTION...

Meh, I doubt that the remote-control claw would be possible if Diesel 10 is made at all. There wouldn't be enough room for the claw's motor and whatnot inside his tiny body. There's barely enough room in Thomas to fit a decoder (from what I heard), so...
Besides, the packaging would be huge, seeing as Diesel 10 is no small engine.

All right, I know you are a new member here so I will just tell you a simple warning.  Try not to double post.  There is an edit feature and you can edit your earlier post and add anything else you wanted to that post like what you said in the second post.  If you double post, it gets annoying.  It annoys lots of people here (Including myself), and it annoys people on other forums.  So just try to be more careful next time.

BOT

Oh and yes I think that if Harvey does come out his crane could be sorta like how Cranky was made too.  But of course you would have to move the arm and crane hook yourself and not remote control.  That would be too expensive and too much of a hassle to make for a remote control claw.  The same would go for Diesel 10, if he is made that is.

laters, GB

I'm really surprised someone actually asked that question.  I'll just tell you my view and other people may agree with me on this too.  The reason why we have the wishlist thread is because if we just talk about the characters that are coming out soon by Bachmann or the different models that they have, then things would get boring without a doubt.  It never would hurt to come up with ideas for the Bachmann company like Duck, Diesel, Harvey, etc.  I mean if people were demanding for Bachmann to make models (IE When Corrie first joined the forum he wouldn't stop talking about Diesel 10...it got really annoying.) then that is definitely something else.   Plus it is always great to see people's ideas becoming the actual models.  That's why many people on this forum like the wishlist thread too, plus it is great thinking about possibilities of different models.

I can't think of anything else (It's 4:12 AM, I'm too tired to think)

  i think that the following engines have a likely chance to be produced in the next 1-4 years-diesel, arry and bert, rocky, harvey, and maybe hector. here's my reasons why.

diesel-most likely, he's appeared many times since around season 8.

arry and bert-likely, they've appeared in a good amount. like diesel they've appeared more since around season 8.

rocky-likely, he's appeared in most of the current episodes with accidents.

harvey-likely, he's appeared in a few accidents in some current episodes.

hector-not as likely, he's only appeared in 2 or 3 episodes, but bachmann is running out of rollingstock so i think hector is possible.

i would also like to see duck, molly, neville, dennis, rosie, and the bowled out diesel, but they aren't very possible.

Well Alex,
Ideas are why new products are announced, so don't get so down on yourself. I think it sounds great, and it does sound worthy of a new product. And for the exits where the track meat the turntable, the snap hook is there and the set connects... Ah, don't worry, dreams are good. But don't get too excited on thinking it will come true, for Bachmann is already busy with tons of projects.  ;)

Oh! And I also can't forget Fergus. He is very unique because he is a traction engine that runs on rails. Perhaps a skew-wound motor would be good for him.

As far as rolling stock, I would like to see Old Slow Coach, Rocky, Hector, the spiteful breakvan, and troublesome truck versions of the salt wagon, the cattle truck, and the tankers.  :) ;) ;D 8)

Also, would it be possible to do location such as Knapford station or Mr. Jolly's chocolate factory?

Plus, Whiff the garbage engine, Oliver, and Toad would be nice. And how about Railway Series Characters who haven't appeared in the TV series? :)

I hope that Harvy is made. The reason is because he's been in most episodes, and he is wicked cool ;D

Well till the next post...later

I agree. Harvey would be nice.

I doubt that any RWS characters will be made, Bachmann is working closely with HIT Entertainment, so they will be making Tv series models only, not RWS ones.

I personally, would like to see Rosie and Diesel made and possibly Harvey.

Hay, if bachmann is really working closely with HIT, then why not make Hank, or Flora after they are reveald. Not only that but I just got the Great Discovery and maybe bachmann or Hornby might make Stanly, or the Jack pack, and maybe smething from Great Waterton.

Well till the next post...later.

Hank and Flora have only just been seen in the tv series, it is highly unlikely that they will be made after just being seen once in the episodes, yeah it is a good idea, but i just cannot see it happening yet...


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: superthomasfan on September 25, 2008, 07:37:26 AM
Well, other characters like the Bowler Diesel made 1 appearence and Hornby made a model of him. If Hornby can do it, so can Bachmann!  :)


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on September 26, 2008, 01:29:13 PM
The only reason why Hornby would make the Diesel in my opinion is that they have the same prototype made already before it was even made.  They would just need to paint it the right colors and make a face for it.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on September 27, 2008, 11:22:52 AM
Well, I think Duck could be coming our way soon. Lady would be nice too. In addition to looking nice, if fitted with front and back couplers she'd be great for shunting in congested yards, as she is the smallest of the standard gauge engines.
Here's a fresh suggestion:
Scale figures of the Fat Controller, and the train crews. An E-Z Track turntable is likely, because E-Z Track is the only track Bachmann makes, and it's going to NEED a turntable. Although I'm pretty sure I could come up with a home-made one.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on October 04, 2008, 01:06:47 PM
I would love Proper HO Scale figures for the Thomas range, however I was thinking about this the other day and I think I may know why Bachmann hasn't done that...

Bachmann would expect younger fans to get the Thomas and Friends range.  However if they came with little mini figures such as Sir Topham Hatt, Lady Hatt, Drivers, etc.  The issue would be that the children would be careless enough to lose them or swallow them... Very odd but some kids such as a three year old may do that.  Bachmann doesn't want that to happen so that is why they made the huge Sir Topham Hatt and Conductor model so they wouldn't need to worry about it.  Even if the label on the container says "For ages 8 and older" the adults could be buying it so they can have fun with their kids or the whole family for that matter.  But who knows, like many people say on this forum, if Bachmann can't make them, then people can always make their own.

thomasj219,
By any chance, are those signals operated by switch, sensors, or a constant power supply? They look interestingly vintage. If you can "fix" them up, then you'll have some proud work done, and a set of Thomas signals on you hand. Those look nice, thanks for sharing.  :)

They are manual there is a switch on the side so you can film the signal changing without your hand in the shot

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on December 22, 2008, 03:07:29 AM
The signal idea I love!  I have always wanted to have those type of signals done by Bachmann for the Thomas range. :)  Let's hope that will come in with the 2009 range. 

Also thanks for agreeing with me there Sparks, recently I thought of another reason of why Duck should be made besides the reasons that I may have mentioned before. Some of you may remember this, but when Gordon and Henry were being made the most popular demands/requests for the Bachmann Thomas range were the following:
1. Toby
2. Edward
3. Duck
After Gordon and Henry as you guys may know Toby, Spencer and Emily were announced.  Then Edward and Mavis.  Then for some random reason Salty. :P  Plus every year it seems Bachmann announces three locomotives onto the range including the delayed ones.  And since Duck and Diesel seem to be the ones everyone wants to see the most...you guys see where I am going with this... ;)  We can only hope, but now I think it is very possible at this point.  Not to mention it makes sense to make Diesel along with Duck, more than just the reason of the Duck and Diesel trilogy of course.  Why I am saying this is because Diesel seems to be very popular these days and Bachmann announced Salty and Mavis before even announcing Diesel.  That's why I think Diesel is very possible at this at this point as well. :) 

Do you guys agree or have any suggestions?


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Michael on December 22, 2008, 11:12:02 AM
I think youre right Chaz. Diesel is probably the next one.   ;)

I think youre right Chaz. Diesel is probably the next one.   ;) 

Well, seeing as Diesel is a well established character now, I really wouldn't be suprised if he is brought into the range. I'm sure it would be a great addition too.

And Duck? I think if he has a few more roles, he'd be good, but I'd also put money on Stanley. If Bachmann make a 0-6-0 for 3 models, they'd be sorted.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: alex wittman on December 22, 2008, 01:34:46 PM

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: LastQ6 on December 22, 2008, 01:35:05 PM
I'm still in favour of Rosie being made sometime in the near future, since she has become a popular Female character alongside Emily.

My suggestions are as follows:

1. Diesel
2. Murdoch
3. Duck
4. Oliver
5. Harvey
6. Arthur
7. Neville
8. Fergus
9. Flora
10. Hank
11. Billy
12. Whiff


Though i put some of the new engines at the bottom of the list, i have no doubts about Hank being made, as the model that he is based on already exists in the Spectrum range.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on December 22, 2008, 07:10:10 PM
I'm still desirous of Lady. Hornby's releasing a model of her early next year.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on December 23, 2008, 10:21:10 PM
Hornby making Lady...no...just no. :P  However at New Year's (UK time) they will announce what will come out in 2009 so we will find out what Hornby will have for us then.

Anyways back on topic, so yes Sparks Duck is very possible at this point, in fact I would be surprised if Duck or Diesel for that matter were not announced.  I think both are possible, and I could see the chance of Stanley being announced next year after Duck and Diesel are.  That's just me though.

Post by: Michael on December 27, 2008, 12:39:41 AM
I was at the store today, and I heard someone even complaining how hard HO/OO is for them.  I doubt they'd go smaller.   
Possibilities?  Think S8 and onwards.   I think those are the guys you can expect from Bachmann.  But February will only tell.   Hopefully Salty isnt the only one...

Hello everyone.  Brand new here. 

I just wanted to put my vote in for Rosie.  My daughter asks for her all the time.  This morning I told her maybe we could get Edward soon and she said maybe we could make Rosie.  When I said they don't make Rosie she repeated that maybe WE could make her.  I told her that I don't know how to make engines and she said "maybe if they give us constructions (instructions she meant) that we could make her." 

Anyway, one little girl would VERY much like Rosie in 09. 

My youngest just said "Thomas" for the first time yesterday.

If you want a nice cheeful model, I'd but the model power 0-4-0 and paint it like Rosie. Paint the wheels red and sand the face, applying a Tomy/Trackmaster face where smokebox detail once was.

Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on December 27, 2008, 05:56:55 PM
Hmm, Bachmann making Rosie is actually pretty possible at this point, not totally sure.  If I were you, I would wait until February after the New York toy fair when Bachmann makes new annoucements for the Thomas range.  I certainly don't want you to end up like how some people did with the Henrietta situation.  (AKA three people made Henrietta models right before Bachmann announced her being made into the range...) 


Title: Re: Wishlist thread

I know right?   We have got the steam team and Mavis and Spencer and Salty.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: thomasj219 on December 28, 2008, 12:09:15 PM
I hope they dont make Rosie NO OFFENCE but I would like them to stay with Series 1-7 Engines. I never really liked Rosie. THEY SHOULD MAKE DUCK OR DIESEL OR DONALD AND DOUGLAS                   HINT HINT ;) :D


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on December 28, 2008, 04:19:15 PM
I think everyone would agree with you on that one, nothing can ever beat the original series/characters.  I hope we get more of the original characters too rather than newer characters, but I guess we have a lot of possibilities of old and new characters coming out by Bachmann so I guess you can never really tell who they are going to make. 

Hint: Salty being made surprised everyone.

Edit: For the sake of it here is a list of the top ten possible engines I could see coming by Bachmann (Not all at once of course, and certainly not confirmed).

Duck - For reasons mentioned above.  It seems reasonable to add engine number 8 to the range, not to mention he has become a lot more popular now, even with his recent appearences in Season 12

Diesel - As mentioned earlier, Diesel seems very possible at this point.  I wouldn't be surprised if he came into the range of announcements in 2009.  Plus we already have Mavis and Salty (two well known diesel engines) so it would make sense to add the diesel that started it all (If you guys take my meaning. ;) )

Donald and Douglas - It would be interesting to see both of them come out since they recently appeared in Seasons 11 and 12.  I don't think we will see Donald and Douglas in the range though until Duck would be announced or confirmed. (Engines 8, 9, and 10..). 

Bill and Ben - Bill and Ben do appear occasionally in the newer series, more than Harvey but not as much as Salty.  I think it would be really interesting seeing how Bill and Ben would turn out by Bachmann, especially the fact Hornby's is out of scale...

Oliver - Oliver I could see coming out too mainly because he played an imporatant part in Emily's character as in being the engine rescued with Thomas and his train.  Plus you got SC Ruffey made by Bachmann as well, so it would make sense if Oliver and Toad (Would be announced later too like what happened with Toby and Henrietta) would be made by Bachmann.  However, like Donald and Douglas, I think Duck would have to be made first before Oliver would.

Arry and Bert - Arry and Bert I would say are slightly possible.  Mainly because of the same case with Donald, Douglas, and Oliver being made after Duck, I could see Arry and Bert being made after Diesel would be made.  (The exact same thing Hornby and Lionel did...)

Harvey - Played a major role when he first came into Season 6 and was given the same treatment as Salty when Season 8 came in.  Before Salty was announced or made I thought both Salty and Harvey had the same odds and since Salty was made I think there is a good chance with Harvey.  It would be even better too if a breakdown train came out around that same time too. :P

Arthur - I think Arthur has a good chance of being made, if Bachmann would make Arthur he would look great!  Even if he hasn't appeared recently he is still somewhat kinda popular, but I must admit I am starting to think less and less it will happen.  But then again you never know.

Molly - Molly seems to be a fairly decent character into the newer series, I think she somewhat has a chance of being made, and possibly a better chance of being made than Arthur. 

Rosie - As I mentioned earlier, Rosie has become very popular into the newer series and even had her own Season 12 episode.  I can see Bachmann adding Rosie to their range.

Stanley - The Great Discovery was very successful (Much better than T&tMR and CAE, IMO).  Stanley seems to becoming very popular very fast, being added to so many ranges (Even the remote control Trackmaster range where the only engines are him and the three main engines).  Plus a lot of people including myself thought Hornby was going to make Stanley due to all of the Great Discovery buildings (including Stanley's Shed) which was a huge letdown when Hornby didn't announce him.  I think he is even possible to be added into the Bachmann range, not to mention I think Stanley would turn out to be a great addition to the range itself.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: oldkentman on December 29, 2008, 02:12:18 PM
Thanks to everyone for responding so quickly and thanks for the suggestions.  I will definitely wait and see if we are getting Rosie this year.  I don't like my chances of a decent do it yourself job.  We still have to get Edward and Mavis, so I am sure I can hold her off until the February announcement.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on December 29, 2008, 10:52:18 PM
TATMR isn't half bad. The Great Discovery is good, but I think HiT owes us for "Thomas, You're the Leader." >:(

I really want to see Duck, Lady, Rosie, the Scottish Twins, Oliver, and Toad. Isabel(and thus Dulcie, Alice, and Mirabel by way of slight face changes by us) would be nice, but since budget constraints forced them to leave her out that's just a pipe dream. Although who knows? Bachmann could go ERTL on us. Daisy and BoCo would be nice too. And Diesel. And Diesel 10(The claw would really sell that one). Old Slow Coach would also be cool to have. Picture this: Lady pulling Old Slow Coach and one or two other GWR clerestories.

Stanley the Silver Engine - Possibly, I could see him coming out in 2010.
All the Narrow Gauge Engines  (including Duke) - No comment...
All the Narrow Gauge Rolling Stock - No comment again...
Duck - Possible, a lot of fans really want to see Duck come out and I think it would turn out really nicely.
Oliver - Possible, but I think Duck would have to be made first.
Devious Diesel - VERY possible.  Salty and Mavis have already been made/confirmed by Bachmann so it would be hard not to make Diesel because of how much more he has done then they have.
Iron 'Arry - Possible, but Diesel would have to be made first to go with the whole Class 08 team.
Iron Bert - Ditto with Arry
Splatter - Very unlikely, only used in T&tMR and nothing more, and I don't think they will be going anywhere after that.
Dodge - Ditto with Splatter
Freight Vans used in Flying Kipper - Possible, Bachmann has a lot more of a variety of rolling stock then engines, so I think it could happen.
Henry in his Old Shape - Unlikely, you can always make one yourself though like other modelers have.
Donald - Not sure, probably not, Duck would have to be made first before them though to go with the flow.
Douglas - Ditto with Donald.
Bill - Possible, I can picture Bachmann making them or adding them to the range. :)
Ben - Ditto with Ben.
Boco - Unlikely, he hasn't been in the series since Season 5...

The announcements for 2009 are coming up soon and they are coming up fast! :D  Just about a few more weeks (maybe less!) and we will finally find out what will come up soon.  My predictions have changed slightly, so here are some rough ideas of what I think will come out this year.

Duck - Popular demand.  I've seen many people asking for Duck (including myself) and a lot of people want him to be made by Bachmann.  I still remember when I first joined the Bachmann forum Toby, Edward, and Duck were popular models that were wanted to be made.  And since Toby and Edward have already been done and made...could Duck be next in line. ;) 

Diesel - Kinda hard not to make Diesel at this point wouldn't you say?  The main diesel engine from Thomas the Tank Engine, and the one that started all of the hate towards diesel engines.  They already made Mavis and are working on Salty, so why not add Diesel?  Plus like Duck, Diesel is also a very popular demand.  (Would be nice if both came out at the same time). 

Molly - Even though I wouldn't get Molly if she was made, I think she is very possible.  Why I am saying this is not only because they added her to the interactive wooden range and the trackmaster RC range but because HIT is fond of using female characters more in the series.  Even if Molly isn't used a whole lot, she is still pretty popular.  Plus, another reason why I think she is popular is...her color...that's right her color...(Wow I sounded like a crazy person :P )  But think about it, basic children's colors are blue (Thomas), red (James), green (Percy), and yellow (Molly).  And since Bachmann hasn't made any yellow engines, I think Molly would even have a higher chance of being made than Bill and Ben (Due to popularity).   

Old composite coach - Due to Edward coming out, I think these would look great with Edward if Bachmann decides to make them.  Bachmann usually surprises people more with rolling stock, (Like how Henrietta, and the other rolling stock came out last year).  To those of you who don't know what I am talking about about, I'm talking about the branch line coaches that were used in season one.  They were pulled by Edward and James, and in "Coal" Henry pulled them.  Ertl made a model of them, if you guys don't remember:
(http://www.hollywood-diecast.com/OldCoaches.jpg)
Also if you guys are gonna say "Bachmann isn't going to make something like that." Then I may have to disagree with you because, well, remember the six ton wagon... You never know with rolling stock as I said earlier. :)

Old Brake coach - While making the composite coach, add the brake coach too. ;)

Quarry wagon with load - Would work out perfectly with coal wagon with load.  I'm thinking though that the truck would end up being the dark blue freight car that was used in Thomas' New Trucks.  (The ones that James pulled).  Again I wouldn't get it, but I still believe it is possible.

Closed Van - I think this would look awesome with Bachmann's range, they got the salt wagon and cattle wagon.  So it wouldn't hurt to add another van to the range.

Log Car - Random idea I know, but I think it would turn out pretty decent if Bachmann made it.  Plus it would be awesome if they had three logs you can add onto it, just like the ertl model.  I would love it! :)

Toby the Tram Engine set (Comes with Toby, Henrietta, Troublesome truck 1, Troublesome truck 2 and circle of track with controller.) - Same reason why Emily's set came out last year.  Toby deserves his own set too from the Bachmann range IMO.

Just a thought...

Maybe what would be nice would be some Troublesome Truck models that depict the way they looked in the first season, when their "faces" were nothing more than a pair of angry eyes stuck on the wagon body (a closeup of their faces can be found in the episode "Edward and Gordon.").

Another piece of rolling stock that would be interesting is the "dragon wagon" from the episode "Thomas, Percy and the Dragon." (anyone remember that one?)


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on February 16, 2009, 04:22:17 PM
Seeing as how Bachmann is going through some economic struggles I'm going to make a smaller wishlist and stick to it:
Engine: Duck - Bachmann has finished all of the season 1 characters, so it wouldn't hurt to get started with Season 2.  Not to mention Duck is still popular in the wishlist thread.
Rolling Stock: Old composite coach, Old brake coach - For some reason I can still picture these being made. 
Off rail character: Trevor - Terence had a smaller chance of being made than Trevor, so if Trevor is released next after Terence is finished then I won't be surprised.
Building: Sir Topham Hatt's House - Cheesy name, but since Bachmann makes their buildings for the Thomas range off of Plasticville buildings, I think that would be possible.
Based off of this product:
http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/products.php?act=viewProd&productId=1403

For their G scale range:
James the Red Engine - Sorta hard not to assume this one coming out...
Sir Topham Hatt and workman (4 piece set) - Why not?
Bertie the Bus - It sounds perfect for this range, not to mention adding more of a variety for the Thomas and Friends Large scale range.
Harold the Helicopter - Ditto with Bertie


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: ThomasFan247 on March 03, 2009, 09:45:30 AM
Hmm, Bachmann making Rosie is actually pretty possible at this point, not totally sure.  If I were you, I would wait until February after the New York toy fair when Bachmann makes new annoucements for the Thomas range.  I certainly don't want you to end up like how some people did with the Henrietta situation.  (AKA three people made Henrietta models right before Bachmann announced her being made into the range...) 
I was one of them!  :D


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: ThomasFan247 on March 03, 2009, 10:08:53 AM
I think everyone would agree with you on that one, nothing can ever beat the original series/characters.  I hope we get more of the original characters too rather than newer characters, but I guess we have a lot of possibilities of old and new characters coming out by Bachmann so I guess you can never really tell who they are going to make. 

Hint: Salty being made surprised everyone.

Edit: For the sake of it here is a list of the top ten possible engines I could see coming by Bachmann (Not all at once of course, and certainly not confirmed).

Duck - For reasons mentioned above.  It seems reasonable to add engine number 8 to the range, not to mention he has become a lot more popular now, even with his recent appearences in Season 12

Diesel - As mentioned earlier, Diesel seems very possible at this point.  I wouldn't be surprised if he came into the range of announcements in 2009.  Plus we already have Mavis and Salty (two well known diesel engines) so it would make sense to add the diesel that started it all (If you guys take my meaning. ;) )

Donald and Douglas - It would be interesting to see both of them come out since they recently appeared in Seasons 11 and 12.  I don't think we will see Donald and Douglas in the range though until Duck would be announced or confirmed. (Engines 8, 9, and 10..). 

Bill and Ben - Bill and Ben do appear occasionally in the newer series, more than Harvey but not as much as Salty.  I think it would be really interesting seeing how Bill and Ben would turn out by Bachmann, especially the fact Hornby's is out of scale...

Oliver - Oliver I could see coming out too mainly because he played an imporatant part in Emily's character as in being the engine rescued with Thomas and his train.  Plus you got SC Ruffey made by Bachmann as well, so it would make sense if Oliver and Toad (Would be announced later too like what happened with Toby and Henrietta) would be made by Bachmann.  However, like Donald and Douglas, I think Duck would have to be made first before Oliver would.

Arry and Bert - Arry and Bert I would say are slightly possible.  Mainly because of the same case with Donald, Douglas, and Oliver being made after Duck, I could see Arry and Bert being made after Diesel would be made.  (The exact same thing Hornby and Lionel did...)

Harvey - Played a major role when he first came into Season 6 and was given the same treatment as Salty when Season 8 came in.  Before Salty was announced or made I thought both Salty and Harvey had the same odds and since Salty was made I think there is a good chance with Harvey.  It would be even better too if a breakdown train came out around that same time too. :P

Arthur - I think Arthur has a good chance of being made, if Bachmann would make Arthur he would look great!  Even if he hasn't appeared recently he is still somewhat kinda popular, but I must admit I am starting to think less and less it will happen.  But then again you never know.

Molly - Molly seems to be a fairly decent character into the newer series, I think she somewhat has a chance of being made, and possibly a better chance of being made than Arthur. 

Rosie - As I mentioned earlier, Rosie has become very popular into the newer series and even had her own Season 12 episode.  I can see Bachmann adding Rosie to their range.

Stanley - The Great Discovery was very successful (Much better than T&tMR and CAE, IMO).  Stanley seems to becoming very popular very fast, being added to so many ranges (Even the remote control Trackmaster range where the only engines are him and the three main engines).  Plus a lot of people including myself thought Hornby was going to make Stanley due to all of the Great Discovery buildings (including Stanley's Shed) which was a huge letdown when Hornby didn't announce him.  I think he is even possible to be added into the Bachmann range, not to mention I think Stanley would turn out to be a great addition to the range itself.
Actually the R/C engines are Thomas, James, Percy, Stanley, & Molly. I think she has moving siderods on the R/C version but I'm not possitive.

Or, more appropriately, the sets could be named for the episodes the scenes were featured in--The "Down the Mine" set, the "Percy Takes a Plunge" set, the "Dirty Objects" set, etc. (the "Down the Mine" set sounds interesting, maybe want to add Gordon with a cable reel attatched to his front buffer-beam, and the trucks would have to be season-one style---where the faces are nothing more than two angry eyes pasted on one end of the wagon). 

Maybe we could even do a "Thomas Comes to Breakfast" set with a special edition Thomas with the mangled front end, bits of fencing, a bush and a broken window frame!

I think set wise, I don't think we will get any "Special Edition" sets.  Unless if it was something like Thomas and Bertie's Great Race or Percy Proves a Point set, etc. (Something that doesn't have an engine in a different sort of condition, (IE Thomas Comes to Breakfast, A Better View for Gordon, etc.)

Oh and some responses to donaldengine9's suggestions:

Hank, Flora, Hiro, Kevin, and Victor - WAY too soon to assume that they are coming out, maybe in the future.  I have my doubts on Season 12 and 13 characters, the only new Thomas character I can see having a chance being made would be Stanley.  Though I'm sure in time chances of Hiro being made will be much higher. ;)  Hiro looks like an awesome character, and I can definetely see him coming out, but much later though. 

RWS Donald and Douglas - Big no... Bachmann focuses on the TV series characters, if they were to make Donald and Douglas they would be in their original black colors like in the TV series. 

Gordon's Special coaches - Spencer's Special Coach has been done and they are pretty much the same model, just used for different purposes. 

Breakdown Train pack - I can see the breakdown train and works coach being sold seperately, not together though.

Narrow Gauge Engines - Not possible I'm afraid, I'll show you a post from our good friend Guilford Guy (modified post) who gave reasons to why the Narrow Gauge Engines will not be made:
1. They don't make HOn2, and aren't going to start anytime soon since its an obscure scale in this country, very few model it, and they already are pleasing the narrow gauge crowd with On30, and 1:20.3.
2. So many more people by their Spectrum Equipment as opposed to the Toy Thomas Equipment, which is why they don't announce as much for Thomas as they do for their other HO equipment.
3. Its an obscure line in the show, so why would they focus on something seen less often.
4. It would require thousands of dollars to make the molds for something that won't sell well.
5. They'd have to engineer another line of track for the HOn2 stuff to run on.
6. HOn2 is too small for the market of small children that Bachmann is aiming to sell to.

The thing is almost all of the Skarloey Railway can be made in 009 using kits.

If anything, I would like to see Thomas, Percy and James retooled. They juse don't match up to the current model standards.

5. They'd have to engineer another line of track for the HOn2 stuff to run on.
6. HOn2 is too small for the market of small children that Bachmann is aiming to sell to.

They don't call it the WISHLIST Thread for nothing, you know.

I think set wise, I don't think we will get any "Special Edition" sets.  Unless if it was something like Thomas and Bertie's Great Race or Percy Proves a Point set, etc. (Something that doesn't have an engine in a different sort of condition, (IE Thomas Comes to Breakfast, A Better View for Gordon, etc.)

Oh and some responses to donaldengine9's suggestions:

Hank, Flora, Hiro, Kevin, and Victor - WAY too soon to assume that they are coming out, maybe in the future.  I have my doubts on Season 12 and 13 characters, the only new Thomas character I can see having a chance being made would be Stanley.  Though I'm sure in time chances of Hiro being made will be much higher. ;)  Hiro looks like an awesome character, and I can definetely see him coming out, but much later though. 

RWS Donald and Douglas - Big no... Bachmann focuses on the TV series characters, if they were to make Donald and Douglas they would be in their original black colors like in the TV series. 

Gordon's Special coaches - Spencer's Special Coach has been done and they are pretty much the same model, just used for different purposes. 
Breakdown Train pack - I can see the breakdown train and works coach being sold seperately, not together though.

Narrow Gauge Engines - Not possible I'm afraid, I'll show you a post from our good friend Guilford Guy (modified post) who gave reasons to why the Narrow Gauge Engines will not be made:
1. They don't make HOn2, and aren't going to start anytime soon since its an obscure scale in this country, very few model it, and they already are pleasing the narrow gauge crowd with On30, and 1:20.3.
2. So many more people by their Spectrum Equipment as opposed to the Toy Thomas Equipment, which is why they don't announce as much for Thomas as they do for their other HO equipment.
3. Its an obscure line in the show, so why would they focus on something seen less often.
4. It would require thousands of dollars to make the molds for something that won't sell well.
5. They'd have to engineer another line of track for the HOn2 stuff to run on.
6. HOn2 is too small for the market of small children that Bachmann is aiming to sell to.
I think what donaldengine9 meant by Gordon's Special coaches was the blue coaches.

That is EXACTLY what I meant.

hey come on guys give him a break, alright, sure you guys think that but that doesn't mean you can modify the models yourself instead of making Mr. Bachmann fell bad about it. just buy paint and supplies and just modify the models yourself. sorry if i sounded mad there but i am not. i am annoyed that you keep pestering bachmann to do things your way, those models were from probably 2000 or 2001 for all i know.

please stop pestering him about little things guys. he needs a thinking break, he has worked hard on the recent models and he deserves it.

sorry if i sounded mad back there but just lay off guys. please.

i have read it, and it was a very rude post so yes i have the models, and no i don't think they are nightmares but how about the economy right now, will there be enough money to modify those models?

(not to sound rude.)

Post by: StanierJack on April 01, 2009, 03:05:34 AM
Alex, I doubt you look at the locomotives as models, more as toys.

Both Sparks and I both like the Bachmann range, but James, Percy and Thomas are probably some of the worst items in the range. (They are good, but compare them to newer additions.)

Besides, asking for an item to be retooled is more likely then a character we have only seen a few times.

As Sparks said, Bachmann is a company, and I am sure that some wishes here are filtered through to them.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: sodorlad on April 01, 2009, 06:17:19 AM
I'm glad somebody highlighted the issues with Thomas, Percy & James.

I can live with minor disimilarities in regards to paintwork and detailing, however, what the major problem is with the models (and it goes for Gordon and Henry too I might add) is that the scale is all wrong. And I've been saying this for the last 3 years.

Find an episode in which James is standing next to Gordon or Henry. He is considerably smaller than them. Stand the Bachmann models together and James is taller!

Find an episode of Edward standing next to Gordon or Henry. Edward is considerably smaller. Stand the Bachmann models together, Gordon and Henry are more or less the same size as Edward. I'd like to point out that my gripe isn't Edward here as I believe he is correct scale (In case one reads it that way)

Spencer towers over Gordon and Henry!

In the TV series, it actually SAYS and shows that Edward and James are the same size... need I say more.

Percy is also too large. And the face is not of the same quality of the latest releases.

Thomas I can live with... it's just the face really. And I suppose Gordon and Henry are good models too but they are too small.

I'd also like to agree with an earlier post about the quality of the Tomix models. Perfect scale and commendable detail in regards to the compact size of the models.

I don't understand HIT really. Why they weren't happy with Emily's face during production, but okay with other's. Or why they have authorised AT ALL the Hornby range. Seems a little bit odd. I want Bachmann James redone if I was head honcho!

I doubt it's financially viable for Bachmann to redo the models but it would be in my fantasy wishlist over a new engine any day.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: sodorlad on April 01, 2009, 06:19:19 AM
I'd just like to add that I love Emily, Mavis, Edward, Spencer and Toby!

So as it doesn't seem I'm a total gripe!


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: Michigan Railfan on April 01, 2009, 05:47:53 PM
Sparks, I think I know why those 3 engines don't have front couplings. All except James, sort of, are shunting engines. In the show, you see Thomas pushing the cars hard, and they don't stick to the front. If he were to have front couplings, they would stay together. Also, even though I don't have her, many people are saying Mavis has horrible pulling power. If so, they could just put a new engine in her.

Post by: The Chaz Storm on April 01, 2009, 11:01:18 PM
I agree with this, newer versions of the Thomas, Percy and James models sound like a great idea to me!  Perhaps the older versions of the three models would be collectors items then if that were to happen. :P  But in all seriousness, I really think that newer versions of the first three models would be awesome.  I mean seeing as how much improvement Bachmann has made with their models now, makes me think about how much better newer versions of these models would turn out.   Like Mark said too, these I think would be bigger wants then new engines added to the range and maybe have a higher chance of being made too then new engines to the range altogether.

Post by: SmokeyNSteamer on April 02, 2009, 09:16:23 PM
I doubt we'll be seeing any episode sets from Season 1-4. They're all too dated, and most kids won't recognize them. Besides, leave those little action sets for the Wooden Railways and stuff.

Actually, the PBS Sprout Cable Network has rerun the Season 1-4 episodes (S1 & S2 being Carlin re-dubs) on occasion, and these episodes are also available on many cable companies "Sprout On Demand" services.  I have literally caught up with what I missed by watching the older episodes On Demand!

So, little viewers who have watched T&F on Sprout will be already familiar with the older episodes!

Post by: The Chaz Storm on April 04, 2009, 11:49:13 PM
But why Donald and Douglas, and not Duck? Well, Duck is already a high seller in the Hornby range.

Very true!  The Thomas modelers can live with the Hornby Duck because it is already a great model as it is.  Though some people such as myself would like to see how Bachmann would do with making a Duck model.  If Bachmann doesn't make a Duck model though, it's not going to kill us, but at the same time leave us curious. :P  Same goes for the Hornby Oliver and some of their other good models.  The Hornby Diesel though..that's another story. :P

But yes Sparks I can see where you are coming from and I strongly agree with you.  It would make sense that they focus on Season 2 characters and maybe stretch out a little here and there with others as well.  (IE Making Spencer, Salty, and Emily) So maybe they could add something along the lines of Arthur, Stanley, and maybe even Oliver (Since they made Mavis).

Plus Donald and Douglas would be great additions to the Thomas and Friends range since Hornby hasn't even made them.  So that would put Bachmann into a great position if they could add the Scottish twins to the range. :)

I would really like to see some old characters from the Bachmann. I think that Duck and Diesel will be the next two engines.  Then probably Stanley and Molly. I say these two because

1. Like Chaz pointed out with Molly, her color, and because she is quit popular.
2. Stanley is very popular. Making his first appearence in TGD, then 2 or 3 in season 12, I think he is going to become a common character.

9 A reworked Thomas, James and Percy

11 Thomas at Knapford set. Contains a Thomas, Express Coaches (Gordon's or James'), Troublesome Truck 1+2, tar wagon, and break van, oval of track, and Knapford station
12 Thomas, Percy and the Mail set. Contains a DCC equiped Thomas and Percy, four mail cars, two break vans, large oval of track, four switches (two left two right), smaller oval of track, Elsbridge station, Harold and landing pad, and DCC contoler


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: The Chaz Storm on June 21, 2009, 11:33:22 PM
All right, instead of a wish list, I thought of speculating on who would be coming out next for the next few years for Bachmann to make characters from season 2 (Except for Boco and Daisy since I can't see those two coming out by Bachmann.) 

2010:

Engines:

Duck the Great Western Engine - I still think that this will be the first season 2 character to come out for the same reasons as I have mentioned before.  Plus with how so many people on the forum have asked for a Bachmann Duck and how Bachmann has sticked to requests such as Toby and Edward in the past, I think it's only fair that Duck is next in line.

Arthur - For the sake of adding another more recent character, I can see Arthur coming out along with Duck.  I can honestly picture Bachmann doing an amazing job with Arthur and it being a great addition to their Thomas range.

Rolling Stock:
Old Composite Coach and Old Brake coach (Sold separately) - Seeing as how Bachmann has made a lot of Season 1 rolling stock and continues to do so, I can see these beautiful coaches coming along next.  Would look great with Edward and maybe James.

Quarry Wagon with load - I wouldn't get this model personally, but seeing as it would be appropriate to make a dark blue wagon (Since they made a lighter blue wagon) I can see this wagon coming into the range next with rocks instead of coal.

Buildings and accessories:
Knapford Station - This I would like to see done by Bachmann, but chances are it would come with two platforms with one track in each one of the platforms because I can't see them making the whole Knapford Station just like how they do on the TV series. 

Trevor the Traction Engine - A lot of people had wanted Trevor over Terence (Even if for me personally, I liked it the other way around, not saying I wouldn't like Trevor or anything...).  It seems appropriate though after Terence they make Trevor, so I wouldn't be surprised if Trevor was added at all to the range anytime soon. 
 
2011:

Engines:
Devious Diesel - About time eh?  Well seeing as how Diesel has also been wanted for a long time it makes sense that he comes around after Duck.  Of course Diesel coming out before Duck would also be nice.  I really think Bachmann would make it a really accurate model and way better than the Hornby one too.  I'm getting sick of the Hornby model honestly. :P

Oliver - Now I know what you're thinking, why Oliver?  The Hornby model is great, and why would he be made so soon?  First off, the Hornby model is freaking awesome. :P  Second off, it makes sense to make Oliver because he is the other Season 3 engine (Not counting Truro) to finish making all the Season 3 characters.  My second reason being it seems appropriate to make him right after Duck and would be a great addition to those who wanted to do a reenactment of Emily's new coaches or Toad Stands By who can't afford buying engines overseas.

Rolling Stock:
Toad the Brake Van - Seems fair to add him along with Oliver, I can imagine Toad turning out really nicely by Bachmann. 

Goods wagon - Mail van repainted with four wheels instead of eight wheels and painted brown.  Seems pretty basic from there.

Buildings and accessories:
Bulgy the Double-decker Bus - Now all of Season 3 characters are done.  Two birds killed with one stone it seems...  Bulgy I think would look awesome by Bachmann, of course if they decided to let Bulgy be kept red instead of green. 

Level crossing - This I can picture coming out at around this time, seems like a good addition to the range. 

2012
Iron Arry and Iron Bert - Arry and Bert would look great right after Diesel, just a few modifications and new paintwork and you got yourself some nice Arry and Bert models.  Similar to what Lionel has done but sold separately.  So now you've really got your Class 08 gang.

Donald and Douglas - Finally. :P  As Sparks has mentioned before this is two engines, but really it is one engine with some short modifications added onto it.  I can imagine these being sold separately though for obvious reasons. :P

Rolling stock:
Brakedown Train - Now I know some of you guys are thinking why this instead of Rocky or Harvey.  Well, for starters a lot of people have been demanding for the brakedown train to be made by Bachmann so I think the brakedown train will make a great addition to the range. 

Works Coach - Fits in well with the Brakedown train, but I can't picture the two of them being sold together. 

NW Brake van - Seems appropriate to go along with Donald and Douglas, heck all you gotta do is get a brake van and add a face to it.  Easy! 

Buildings and Accessories - N/A  We got four engines (Two pairs that is) and three rolling stock models one of which would be difficult to make, think that's more than enough. :P
 
2013
Bill and Ben - Bill and Ben aren't usually mentioned or wanted as much as Donald and Douglas are so I sort of have my doubts on this one...  At the same time though I would love Bachmann to make Bill and Ben mainly because the Hornby ones are out of scale (Not happy here :P ).  Second off if making all of the Season 2 characters is what Bachmann is aiming for then well, I guess these two have a higher chance of being made then Boco and Daisy. 

Stanley - The Great Discovery was a huge success, it is hard for Bachmann not to make Stanley if seeing how much he has done in the movie and in Season 12.  I can imagine Stanley being made by Bachmann at around this time.   

Rolling stock:

Branch Line coaches (Red) Brake and composite - About time these were mentioned onto this right? :P  These would look great if Bachmann added them to the range, I can picture them selling well. :) 

Flat Car with Logs - I personally would have prefered Bachmann adding logs as a load instead of paint cans, but regardless of that.  A flat car with logs seems logical to be added onto the Thomas range at this point. 

Buildings and accessories:
Sir Topham Hatt's house - A decent little house for fans to enjoy on their layout, and I can see that coming along with proper HO scale figures of Sir Topham Hatt and Lady Hatt.

Branch Line sheds (3 stalls) - I know what some of you are thinking, we already have the Bachmann Tidmouth sheds, why would we want this?  Well these sheds would be based off the ones used in Season 2 (The one's where you would find Thomas, Percy and Toby). 

-------

Quite a lot wouldn't you say?  Well let's hope some (if not all) gets considered.  And as Sparks said too, suggestions for improvements on the Thomas, Percy, James, and some of the rolling stock models would be really nice as well.  But if not the models being improved...then hopefully we are on the road to seeing characters from Season 2.


Title: Re: Wishlist thread
Post by: panniertankboy8751 on June 22, 2009, 02:27:43 PM
Well i guess i'll show you my list of who might come out next

Steamers for 2009-2014:

Duck- Super likely. My guess is he's the most wanted model in 2009, as you guys have already said

Donald and Douglas- very probably. They are two that i would really like to see, but seeing as the only appeared once this season, and only for a brief period of time i'm not having high hopes :(

Rosie- Likely. Would be a good addition to the collection. In fact i've already come up with a train set for her to come in.

Oliver- probably. Again, another fine addition, and a good engine to put in a train set. Still, not high hopes. and thats bad cuz oliver is my fav engine.

Stepney- likely. Once more, a fine addition. It would be nice to see a famous engine added on to the collection

Diesels for 2009-2014:

Diesel- Super Totally Likely. Gosh, Diesel sure has become popular scince I was a kid. He is probably more wanted than Duck. Lets just hope bachmann doesn't mess up the chassies like hornby did.

Diesel 10- Not Likely. Kids will not know who the heck he is and will not buy him.

Arry 'n' Bert- Maybe. They have taken on bigger and bigger roles scince their apperance in "Stepney Gets Lost".

Dogde 'n' Splatter- Give your hopes up. They haven't been seen scince "Thomas and the Magic Railroad"

Rolling Stock for 2009-2014:

The Red, Old and Orange coaches- Maybe. They would look so fluffin' awsome with Edward

Fred the coal truck- No. He was only a minor character in a long line of forgoten wooden trains.

Rickity- No. Read the one above

        well you never know, bachmann might surprise us  in a couple years.

        and GG is just an old fusspot. he doesn't work for bachmann.  >:(





        Also, engines that were seen only in a couple episodes or 1 season like Boco and Daisy  most likely wont be produced. New engines from season 11 or 12 also most likely won't be seen soon because Bachmann is mainly focusing on the older engines from about seasons 1-7 right now. Engines and/or characters rom the books probably won't be seen for awhile.[/list]

         you are true about that
        Calm down, GG is not a fusspot, He is just annoyed by the same question being asked over and over again being post. Like DCC Thomas. I found 4 topics on it! :o Wouldn't you be annoyed? ??? I would. So don't say he is a fusspot. But here... is free opinion. Separate topics like DCC Thomas questions are the same "is it possible?" "will bachmann make them?" etc. their is a reason they stay on the board. Just don't give him a hard time OK? You want bachmann to make an item in this category fine, make a new topic about it, umm no, please don't. Want to ask a question/suggestion that's OK too. Just make sure it has not been already up.

          ...
          You honestly think that Bachmann is going to make EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER from the TV series?  So many of those characters won't be made, and some aren't even that well known yet...

          Seriously, I'm all up for creative thinking in all (Since that's the point of this thread really), but not only is this really cheesy but it's ridiculous.  Especially the fact that more than half the characters that are on that list have small chances of being made.

          Salty (already in production ;D)
          Fish cars to go w/ salty
          Duck (because of his muraculus come back in season 12)
          Deseil (because he's a big focal point in most recent stories now a days)
          Rocky (don't know for shure why, but I like him)
          Harvy (many kids: including my neice: seems to like him alot)
          And lets pray to god and any other model train company that the Narrow Guage engins may be made...see I didn't use bachmann or Hornby..HAHA ;D

          That's not how GPAs work. You may have gotten a 99%, but not a GPA of 99...

          There are kits available if you want narrow gauge engines on your layout, don't rely on Bachmann or Hornby for that matter to make them as it is not going to happen.

          well this is a wish list thread so i don't see any reason why they cant say they want them. Of coarse you can make them yourself or get them from Henryblue. maybe they think it will be a bit more different and they might like that. I would like Duke from the narrow gauge and i could live with Henryblue's model. just gotta get the money. ;)

          Hay guess what, I belive that maybe bachmann could make well, how about Deseal, I like that guy because he always causes trouble, and one of the engines have to fix it, buy what really confusies me is that I thought is that didn't the fat controler sent him away again after the incedent with helping duck and percy at the hardor, and if so, what made the fat controler keep him the next time, all the time. But Deseal is having a good chance of being made next. And hay, I'm not drunk, I'm just that kind of guy, weird, funny, and one brave heroic dude, who love thomas and friends, and transformers. Oh, sorry that I freaked ya out there chazz, but you are cool. And no, Im 15, I'm actully 1500 yeras old. :P Also, why not bachmann make an esay set, like henerys passenger train set that has henery and a red composite ans brake coach.

          Life call us at a time, realy to soon, ins't that right jettrainfan. That was just some thing I heard from a movie, pluse Diesel really knows how to make an accident if the other railway doesn't want him any more. Yard Manager(YM): Diesel did you give Bcos fuel?, Diesel: Yes, I gave him the leaded fuel like you asked, YM: WHAT!! But Bocos engine can't work properly with leded fuel!! Boco: Uggggg... I don't feel so...Uggg....
          Maybe thats what happened to Boco :-\. But I still think that bachmann may make diesel next. Pluse bachmann can use existing models to make new sets, like percy's mail set, toby and henrietta's run set, and maybe if diesel is made, dieseal messes up set ;D, funny right, but also I was thinking about harvy, and then I saw one little flaw in him that may cause trouble, the crain, I mean it can move, but where work the chain or string holding the hook go, and should the hook be made of metal, plastic, or ruber ??? Oh, and pepsi, coke and sprite makes me jacked up...hahaha :D

          HA! Mountain Dew, Thats for sissys! Real men drink Dr. Pepper! (only kidding) But diesel should be the engine that should be made. (AND THEY'ED BETTER NOT SCREW UP THE CHASSIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

          I would like to see Donald. Maybe he could be a practice ground for some new toolings with the design, you know, improving the look of the faces and all. Just a suggestion.


          By the way, I like Mountain Dew Throwbacks better, and Dr. Pepper Cherry.  ;)

          THANK YOU SPARKS!!! You took the words right out of my mouth. :P  (I was gonna mention something about this right as I signed in a few minutes ago). 

          Anyways Back On Topic.

          Now, onto the subject of Donald and Douglas:

          First off I will be really happy if Donald and Douglas would be made, and I think Duck should be added with them as well, and some reasons are:

          1. All three of the engines are season 2 characters, so that should be a great start for starting up with Season 2.
          2. It would be great to have Bachmann finish all the engines numbers 1-10. 
          3. Making Donald and Douglas would be just as simple as making one engine (Since all they require is the same engine bodys with a different face, name plate, and number).  So at the most I can see Bachmann making two engines (Donald and Douglas counting as one due to modifications) so I think that Duck would fit in perfectly here.
          4. Duck has been wanted for many years now that I look back (Like since 2005) and since engines like Edward and Toby were made by popular demand, it's only fair that Duck gets made next (Or anytime sooner). 

          It may limit the rolling stock and buildings, but we don't have too much rolling stock left to go and the buildings can wait.  The more classic characters that are done, the better I say.  I'm still going to stick with my theory regarding the old coaches and Trevor though, just because I still think they have a strong chance of coming out next year.

          To help along the idea of Duck, why not use the body, but redo a couple of thing in the toolings to sell the real engine that Duck is based off and sell it in the scheme of real British railways, along with Duck?

          Ur very true about that. so basically it like recycling. plus Donald and Douglas would be good evan after Duck too. they could ( as u said be for) reuse the chaises. but if Duck came out, and Donald and Douglas are easy to make, maybe they would come out together. :)


          but back to the Harvey thing
          he would be hard to make because he would be (i don't know if there is a maximum height limit) tooooooo tall. but his crane arm could move and his hook could move up and down (both manually of course). but his crane arm also houses the chain/string. heel be like "Cranky on wheels" - James  ;D

          Story time, eh?

          Virgin Train Company office:

          Man 1: So, we have a Class 390 coming in Northbound in need of fuel.

          blah blah blah...

          Joshua

          I know this is off topic, but I just had to say it:

          390s are electric trains, and don't need any fuel at all!!  >:(

          For goodness sake.  (http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/board/Smileys/default/rolleyes.gif)

          Any way, to carry on what we are meant to be talking about.

          I would like to see Donald and Douglas made, but if they did make Bill and Ben, I would buy one despite not modeling Sodor at all. This is because RTR 0-4-0 chassis are few and far between. So even though it would be hard to make, I'm sure it would be a kit-bashers delight to see one on the market, and of course to have a scale Bill and Ben unlike the hornby ones...

          panniertankboy8751,
          They should, instead of making these Thomas line, but a model model. Something with precise detail. That probably won't happen, and I think your trying to make a joke, but think about it again. :)

          I'd like to see Diesel, we could use another switcher.

          Besides, it would be HOn30/009 not HOn3 anyway. So it would run on N gauge track.

          Depending on how much you want the narrow gauge engines, you could buy and build kits of their prototypes that are available, many have done it before.

          There's a guy who makes the narrow guage engines. He even made the Arsdale Engines (well, one any way.) He takes the chassie off a Take-a-Long, and puts an N scale motor in it.

          i know wat u all would say ( im not trying to sound rude ): it would be to much money and to expencive, it won't happen, it would be alot of money to make, rather just make the Knapford station the wire it urself so u can talk in a mic and and play music from ur ipod, but this is a wishlist. it's a cool idea though. and u guys would be true.

          They were pretty much only seen in season 1, whereas the Red Coaches have been with us from season 3-12 and beyond. Much more logical to make the red ones.

          Source or it didn't happen.

          I got the on the TTTE wikia But Why would The T.v. make the Tenders and not show Flying Scotsman Him self when we saw the Cab appear in shed (makes no Sense just to make an engine and its tenders and only show the cab): Bio in the television series: In the third season episode "Tender Engines" Flying Scotsman's two tenders appeared poking out of a shed. Both of his tenders had a coalbunker, which is impossible: Flying Scotsman's rear tender only carries water.

          Apparently Flying Scotsman was to have a proper appearance, but before production his body model was severely damaged, because of being dropped by a crew member, so the script was quickly rewritten to have his only his tenders visible, although his cab was glimpsed at one point. His damaged model was still attached to the tenders.

          True, and as said before Bachmann don't take much interest in the Railway Series Engines and other RS things.

          Also Sparks I was going something about the paint trucks in my other post as well - and the cream and raspberry tankers weren't exactly the most expected items either ;)

          Well I might as well make wishlist (In order of preference):

          Engines:
          1. Duck
          2. Donald & Douglas
          3. Oliver
          4. Boco

          1. Old Coaches  -  (Composite & Brake)
          2. Red Coaches  - (Composite & Brake)

          Even though I don't collect G scale, I'm gonna make a short list of what I think should be added to the G scale range.  Though I must say what I think: that they might just make a few and not make so many engines just because of prices and the ages of Thomas fans and such (Hence why Gordon and Henry aren't on the list).

          Engines 2010:
          James the Red Engine
          Toby the Tram Engine

          Rolling stock 2010:
          Henrietta
          Milk Tanker
          SC Ruffey (Since he usually ends up in most Thomas electric ranges :P)
          Brake Van

          2011:
          Buildings and others:
          Sodor Junction Station
          Water Tower
          Sodor Coaling Station
          Sir Topham Hatt and conductor
          Bertie the Bus
          Harold the Helicopter

          I beleive that bachmann could also make a Gordon in the distant future as well, but James looks a lot more promising. But I would like to see a large scale Grodon run too, if so, I shall get him. My dad had already made plans to get the large scale Thomas, pluse his favorite engine is Gordon, so I hope they make one of him near 2012. Pluse I do have more hopes for the Ho scale too. Heres what I wish to see in up coming years:
          2010
          Engines:           Rolling stock:                       
          Duck                 Carnival/Circus vans
          Donald              Red Branch line coaches
          Douglas            Flower Cars
          Oliver                Chocolate Vans
          Deasiel              Flat Beds w/ logs

          People:                Buildings:
          Farmer McColle    Farm
          Ho Ho                  Kanphord Station
          Lugia                   w/ sounds

          Kinda doubtful on Gordon and Henry as I've said, unless if Bachmann wants to make more engines after they would announce or make engines like James and possibly Toby. 

          Also I wouldn't really go with buildings having sounds, that's more of a wooden railway or take along type of idea. :P I can't see Bachmann adding sounds.  Without sounds though I could see that happening.  Outside of that almost all of your ideas sound like good ones.  Just one thing....

             
          Ho Ho                 
          Lugia                   
          Picachu


          ...? 
          Never gonna be added or made by Bachmann at all, especially in a Thomas range. :P

          Well santa, when you put it that way, I would like it to be powered by batteries, because then it woulden't take so much power away from the track. And your right, nintendo has cover my Ho Ho and Lugia requset with heart gold and soul silver coming soon. Pluse why not give faces to the red truck, blue truck, coal truck, and breack van, but not new ones, but the same old troublesom trucks faces. That would be cool.

          You don't have to wire it to your track. Use a separate power supply, like an AC adaptor from Radio Shack, or use the AC part of your power pack. (That's those tabs on the Bachmann DC power pack, I've used them before.)

          And from what I have just played, it seems to be a pretty good game, too bad there isn't one for the nintendo DS. But also, I wish to Duck, and the scotish twins made first, and even Deasiel has a better chance of being made.

          Talking about Duck and Donald & Douglas again in the recent news of their possibilty of being made  ;)

          The red coaches which are all extensively used by all of these engines would be a great rolling stock item to join them if they are (fingers-crossed) made. As with D & D being one tooling to make two engines, the red coaches would just require a modification of Annie & Clarabel - colour, roof, red brake coach would need the bits on the end etc. Making it an easier task for Bachmann to model and make  :)

          (http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/ttte/images/f/f6/Redcoaches.png)

          As well they have been a regular since season 2 making them a well recognised item for fans out there, and if those engines weren't made the red coaches are still used by Percy, Edward, James and even Henry on the odd occasion making them useful for almost all of the engines in the range.

          Hornby has a better chance of making Stanley. They already have an engine that looks like him in their steam range.

          Very true about Hornby making Stanley, I think that could happen.  Especially with all of the Great Waterton products released last year, including "Stanley's Shed".  So...where is Stanley to go with that shed (that never appeared in the movie xD) and the Great Waterton products.  I'd be surprised if Stanley or Murdoch (since I think he has a chance too) won't come out from Hornby next year.

          Do you mean the BR Early J52 No. 68878? That engine looks more like Billy rather than Stanley, in my opinion.

          To all,
          Perhaps some more Thomas parts. I was a bit disappointed to see only faces on for sale in the 'Order Parts' section. I would love to see engines and such being sold, so sell-appointed repairs are able to be done. Also, having such access will encourage personal scratch-built or kit-bashed locomotives.  :)

          Cheers,
          Joshua

          Top five that I'd like to see:
          Duck - always been wanted by Bachmann
          Donald and Douglas - Ditto
          Diesel - I'd be really happy to see Diesel come out, the hornby model is just terrible...
          Bill and Ben - The hornby models are out of scale, I'd like to see what Bachmann can do.
          Oliver - I'm in no hurry for this one since the Hornby model is GREAT, but it would look nice by Bachmann.

          Top five that are most likely (IMO):
          1. Diesel - With Salty and Mavis out it is hard not to add him.
          2. Arry and Bert - If Diesel comes out I can see them coming out next.
          3. Stanley - It can happen with how big of a success it was in TGD and S12.
          4. Duck - Due to fan demands and popularity in season 12, there is hope! ;)
          5. Rosie - Very popular with the younger fans, I can see her coming out.

          These are the top 5 I would like to see come out.

          1) Murdoch
          2) Boco
          3) Harvey
          4) Daisy
          5) Hiro

          And I know I've said this before, but I wish that Bachmann would make a scale for the little engines.

          That's funny, the parts section used to have brakepipes and buffers. Odd.
          Well, as I have said I would like to see Lady, Duck, Donald and Douglas (can't have one without the other), Oliver, Toad (They've got Scruffey, they need Oliver and Toad now), Rosie, Trevor, Hank, and Old Slow Coach. Now, I think Donald and Douglas are more likely than some say, as both could be made with the same body mold. Lady would be a little tricky, but she's a beautiful engine. I am personally making my own model, but not everyone has the time, skill, and patience, so it would be nice if there was a manufactured version for those who want her but can't build her. Who else would like Lady?

          Okay so I know you guys know my wishlist consists of:
          Duck, Donald, Douglas and Diesel for engines
          Rolling stock: Breakdown train, works coach, old composite coach, and old brake coach and the goods van used in Season 1. 
          But for accessories (besides Trevor) I thought of an idea with my friend Kevin...
          (http://train.spottingworld.com/images/f/fa/Georgesteamroller.jpg)
          George the Steamroller.
          Why George you may ask?  Well after some critical thinking, I came up with a reason why I think George has a very good possibility and has a close chance of being made like how Trevor could be made:
          George first came in Season 4 and had one episode starring him with Sir Handel, plus his own episode in Season 5 and an appearance in another Season 5 episode and made various cameos throughout the series ever since but no speaking role since.  He did get an appearance in Calling All engines though and was used for a last minute emergency as many of you recall.  What's this got to do with Bachmann making George?  Well they made Terence, and as you all know Terence only had one Season 1 episode starring him with Thomas and made various appearences/cameos ever since.  Bachmann still made him, why not make George?  I could honestly see Bachmann making George along with Trevor (or after Trevor) and he would be a great model.

          Based on "research" and readings from this thread, I would honestly say that the following would come out in the next year or two.

          Engines

          Duck: Very popular with most T&F viewers.
          Donald and Douglas: Again, very popular.
          Diesel: Makes sense; you have Salty and Mavis, so you might aswell have the original.
          Molly: We need some females.
          Rosie: She's famous with little kids.
          Whiff: I don't know why. He seems like he would be a good character for Bachmann.
          Hiro: He's become EXTREMELY famous with almost everybody.

          Rolling Stock

          Log Car
          Red Coaches
          Breakdown Train
          Works Unit Coach
          Old Coaches
          Fish Van

          Accessories/Buildings (These are just things I want. I don't think they'll come out due to size and such.)

          Knapford Station
          Maithwaite Station
          Tidmouth Station
          Tidmouth Goods Sheds
          Ffarquar Station
          Engine Sheds (Behind Tidmouth)

          I deffinately see Duck and Trevor coming out some time soon, aswell as the wagons, but I have my doubts with your other wants.

          The TTs I want aswell, but I truly don't see them being released. Now, if they were, lets say, a troublesome gravel truck, maybe.

          Loads most likely will not be announced. If there was to be more loads they would be sitting in some sort of wagon  :P

          Tidmouth Station and the goods shed is a BIG no no. I wish, but you're just gonna hafta make your own or find something else  :P

          Btw: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  ;D  :D  ;D  :D  ;D  :D  ;D  :D

          I know Bachmann would never make Daisy but if she did come out then I would go nuts and I honestly think the model would look really nice.  At least that's how I imagine it, same with Boco. 

          Tidmouth Station and the goods shed is a BIG no no. I wish, but you're just gonna hafta make your own or find something else  :P
          Considering Bachmann released Tidmouth Sheds, I find them unpredictable now.
          Agreed with Sparks on that one.  In terms of buildings they usually surprise us, why just watch them make a farm and have Trevor come out with the farm :P  That'd be something to see... I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case considering Terence just came out...

          We have so far:
          The Steam Team
          Mavis
          Salty
          Spencer

          I could say we would most likely see... but anyone else will be a surprise. 

          My guesses this time are:
          -Diesel
          -Duck
          -Harvey

          Well, Large Scale James is definitely the next large scale, as they're going by the production order of the original smaller line. Heh. Hopefully the large-scale Percy set won't get cancelled. And I'd also like to see the smaller one reinstated.

          Here's something: New faces on Thomas and Percy, and open cabs for them, James, Mavis, and I think Toby as well.

          Many have done that. But one would have to drill the eyes out to make them work with Bachmann's eye mechanism. And I busted my Bachmann Thomas opening him up.

          I'm not sure about Donald and Douglas. I'm pretty sure the requests for Duck will sway HiT's decision and her will be produced, but ultimately the mass market is young children - not purists on a message board. So I think it's likely that characters which younger fans identify with, for example Rosie in particular, have a stronger chance. I also think Hiro has a very strong chance. HiT have put a lot of money into that character. He launched CGI and has a model made by most other manufacturers.

          I think the breakdown train is unlikely as it hasn't been seen since the arrival of Rocky, and for the same reasons as above.

          Sparks,
          What's the point of a breakdown train? We have workbenches!  ;) Now, that my humor is gone, I think it'll be funner to make one! Of course, I prefer if they would make one. I'd love to see if they would make an ATSF crane again with that tooling.

          Bachmann usually doesn't use USA toolings for the Thomas range. A breakdown train would fit well on any Thomas layout, as it's a classic icon of the series.  ;)

          Atleast till they brought Rocky in...  :P

          In terms of classics I think that would be seasons 1-4 but the farthest I would go in terms of classics would be season 7.  Season 8-beyond is NOT classic, and far from it. :P

          Thats the whole point. People don't seem to realize that Thomas is a British institution, and things such as Hank wouldn't really work.

          That being said, I'd like to see Donald and Douglas.

          Engines:
          Duck - Okay with Donald and Douglas confirmed for 2010, he HAS to come out next year. :P

          Old coaches (composite and brake) - It can happen... :)
          Breakdown train and works coach - A great addition for the HO range.

          If Bachmann were to make Duck and Oliver I'd still keep the Hornby models.  The Hornby Oliver is an amazing model alone, Duck though is an okay model.  Better then the Diesel but not as good as the Stepney model.  If Bachmann announces Diesel though then no questions asked I'll sell my Hornby Diesel.

          yea, he was around for 1 episode as a replacement or helper. he had teething troubles. 1 of the twins said he had a tooth ache. He got sent home because he broke. He was pretty cool i'll admit.

          A whole lot better then last year's!  I wasn't too satisfied with last year's range... we didn't get any new engines, other then the delayed Salty model.  The ventilated van, Terence, and the flat car with paint drums I was happy with....but at least one or two engines would have been really nice. 

          But anyways this is a wishlist thread let's leave this kind of discussion for this in' the everything thomas topic'.  :P

          That's an excellent find you pointed out there.... I know that Walthers is updated nightly so we should be able to find out shortly what the deal is with that.  It looks like we are getting another accessory and one piece of rolling stock in HO...at least that's what I'm assuming.  But it does answer the question about Donald and Douglas and bill and ben about them being sepearate or together....

          I've got a few things I'd LOVE bachmann to make:

          1. STEPNEY- original character based on a real engine who just happens to be my favourite. Made by Hornby but rather expensive as all the detail of normal terrier has been added.
          2. Duck - You've made engines 1-7 and now 9+10, so 8 would finish the run.
          3. Harvey The Crane Engine - An interesting model design that I would love to see actually made. He would also probably be a good seller due to his unique design being able to be modified to make original prototypes
          4. The Red Carriages and Edward's Old Coachers (Black and cream) - you have Annie And Clarabell so it would be a quick and cheap repaint and you have the popular carraiges!

          There are more but these are my top 3 wants

          Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on February 17, 2010, 11:25:06 PM
          The old coaches are actually cream and dark green, and are more different from Annie and Clarabel than you think. They would require new toolings, as would the Red coaches.

          I thought of something earlier but for some reason next year if they make more announcements, but if Duck comes out, not only can I picture Diesel coming out with him but I can also picture Oliver coming out with him.  So I'm gonna update my predictions:

          Engines:
          Duck
          Diesel
          Oliver

          Rolling stock:
          Old composite coach
          Old Brake coach
          Toad the brake van - (If Oliver is coming out so is he. :P)
          Breakdown train
          Works coach

          Dear Bachmann

          I have some ideas for model trains for the Bachmann Thomas range to make:

          Hiro
          Charlie
          Billy
          Whiff
          Duck
          Oliver
          Diesel
          Molly
          Neville
          BoCo


          TRUCKS/COACHES/OTHERS

          Red coach
          Red Brake coach
          China clay truck
          Jelly tanker
          Toffee tanker
          Orange coach (Just use either Annie or Clarabel remove the face and put a wall where their face would be)
          Old Slow Coach
          Hector
          Rocky
          Breakdown train
          Toad the brakevan

          Reasons why

          1)it would increase price revenue: if you made these and improved the range greatly with these models, then you would increase your revenue and increase the costumers Bachmann train layout and railway. Another aspect in this revenue is increased chances of money. With 20 model trains, you could make a lump sum (not going to tell how much).

          2)Re-enacting favourite Thomas episodes: with these models that children would buy if made, then they could re-enact their favourite episodes like-Hiro Helps Out, The Biggest Present of All, and many other episodes

          3)more characters in own Thomas series: with these twenty characters, you tubers can make more episodes around these engines and even use them in other episodes of their series and that will increase not only episode ideas, but spark some creativity, make the episodes enjoyable and these characters can be used over and over again.

          4) One made, the other made: with Charlie and Billy, when you make Billy, just change the faces, paint and name plates and add the #14, and you’ve made Charlie. Same thing with the toffee and Jelly tankers, just change the paint scheme on the jelly tanker and you’ve made the toffee tanker.

          5)It would please the younger kids: many kids will remember some of these characters and if you make them, then the kids will have models of their favourite characters and make up interesting stories about them, which leads me to my final point

          6)imagination: kids will use these characters in stories that they make up in their heads and even, if they are good with a video camera, might actually start a Thomas series on youtube, and even make many music videos for their “series”.

          Conclusion

          These characters would please the younger kids, spark imagination, give the kids more options for Thomas episodes, increase revenue and even please these kids. One other thing is that it will please the veteran Thomas fans like me, as you will have brought back many memories with characters like Duck, Oliver, Toad, Diesel, BoCo, and many of the wagons and coaches mentioned above. These characters have been made in Take Along, Wood, and whatever other company (Except Hornby for many) and you can beat Hornby to the punch to make these characters.

          It isnt up to mr. b what thomas stuff gets made. he can pass the word but that does not garuntee (i spelled that wrong) anything. they sound good but i dont think they will all be released. I think Duck, Oliver, Diesel and Molly will prob be released. Hiro sounds nice too. But the other newer characters like Charlie, Whiff, Billy, etc. probably won't be released. If anything, Stanley would probably be the newest engine besides Hiro that would prob be released. I'm deffinately thinking we'll at least see Duck and Diesel next year. Idk but you never know  ::)

          The china clay trucks are a possibility. Bachmann has the toolings, and most of the rolling stock uses existing Bachmann toolings. If the trucks are TV accurate, which they likely will be, they will be a plain brownish gray or just gray.

          I thought of an idea.

          Okay so as you guys may know, recently the James, and Gordon sets have been discontinued.  Before then the Percy set was discontinued too.  Now I'm thinking with the recent addition with Troublesome Truck #3 I'm thinking the Percy set has a good chance of coming back!  It'll be an oval track with Percy, the Trucks 1-3 and maybe a brake van.

          I'm thinking more for Percy, a Mail Coach, a break van and/or some sort of open wagon. I can't believe so many sets are being discontinued! I guess its because so many people like to just buy the models seperately  :-\ I really hope that Bachmann doesn't discontinue the Holiday Set. If my Thomas ends up breaking or just stops running I'm going for another one of those so I can use the snowplow  :P

          I agree that Duck, Diesel, and Oliver are important along with possibly Daisy and Boco. Toad, the red coaches, china clay trucks, flat wagons, and the breakdown train are also a great importance on my list. Let's hope Bachmann can add to the already amazing 2010 list or make another great one next year.

          Actually if you think about the breakdown train, I don't think it has a good chance of going into production with the thought of Rocky. He basically replaced all breakdown trains.


          Title: Re: Wishlist thread
          Post by: The Chaz Storm on April 09, 2010, 01:41:49 AM
          Rocky would be less of a seller though. Most people would need to buy two Breakdown trains in order to have a complete set, thus getting Bachmann more money.

          Rocky didn't stop Learning Curve and Take Along from doing breakdown trains either. :P

          Pretty sure the breakdown crane was already made in the learning curve range before Rocky was even thought of....

          But I do agree with this, the more older stuff they do such as classic engines and rolling stock, the more money Bachmann would make.

          Post by: PerfectPercy on April 09, 2010, 12:06:05 PM
          When you put a face on something, though, it will sell. Rocky seems to be on the LC wish list for kids over the breakdown train, so why isn't it the same in some cases with Bachmann Thomas items? I emphasize kids with this. Kids also get Bachmann Thomas stuff, so I would think the same. I would be happy with a breakdown train. Rocky would also be alright.

          Well as the man told me Duck IS on the product radar so I have a feeling Duck is going to be next in line.  Diesel and Rosie though I think have pretty good chances of coming out too, paricularly Diesel.  I'm actually surprised that we don't even have Diesel in the Bachmann range already...

          I have a few for the wish list, how about more structures from The Island of Sodor.
          Like more of the smaller stations, sheds and Platforms. I know how about the Ice Cream Factory.
          and I would love to have a Sodor Grade Crossing, Steel water tank, Sir Topham Hat's Office and Car. Farmer McCool's Farm

          Trying to find structures of British theme is tough, I've looked at Hornby and their Thomas Items as far as I can tell are not available in the US unless someone know different and their other Items it seems are not available at all

          any other suggestion or Idea from the group

          You do realise that most of Bachmann's Thomas structures are just slightly-repainted versions of existing Bachmann USA products sold at jacked-up prices, don't you? Although maybe that'll change. Yeah, finding Brit stuff is tough. There are some sites with downloadable printout card kits, though. And eHattons and anticsonline both ship to the USA. They're British sites, and carry products from Hornby and other makers.

          okay, i would just like to say that I'm sorry if i restate anything said before in this thread, because i don't have the time to read the entire 34 pages. anyway, here's my wishlist and reasons why i want certain things.

          1. if anything, i hope to see diesel, arry, and bert. why three engines in one point?? they are the same exact engine in the series, so its pretty likely that with diesel's popularity and similarity to arry and bert,they will all be made, probably in the same year!!   :D

          2. this is gonna sound silly, but i hope they make Rosie. she's a really popular character, being in every season since her debut, and she's like another Emily to thomas, so that would make another good train set. wow, I'm on a roll!!!

          3. although i wasn't a big fan of these pop out of nowhere, there for no reason characters, i wish that Stanley would be made. he was practically the main focus character(other than Thomas) in The Great Discovery, and was very popular in season 12. plus, I LOVE HIS MODEL!!!!!!!!  ;D

          4. Duck, Oliver and Toad: season 12 appearances made them at least slightly more popular with the children(oh no, I'm acting like HIT thomas!!!  :D), and i think that Oliver and toad must be made together, for obvious reasons. Duck had more appearances in season 12, in fact, i think that he had more appearances than Donald and Douglas, surprisingly, so why not make him??

          5. if i could choose any other characters, I'd choose Whiff, Harvey, and maybe even Murdoch. Whiff because, well he's one of my favorite characters, and he may even appear again in season 14, because there is a recording of his CGI voice somewhere. of course, he isn't as urgent to me as the other characters. Murdoch because of his number of appearances and speaking roles in season 12, and Harvey because he was a good crane character until rocky came. speaking of which, i hope they can make rocky because he is a very popular character, and for some reason, one of my favorites!!

          As said I doubt Lady, Splatter, and Dodge will be made. Diesel 10 has a better chance, but even his chance is slim. He appeared twice and they appeared once. I wonder about Molly or Billy as they haven't appeared in more than 1 episode (besides cameos). I'm being honest. I would like to see them made too but they really aren't in that much of a demand.

          Post by: The Chaz Storm on April 15, 2010, 02:17:00 AM
          I've thought of some predictions of what could be coming out next by Bachmann next year, so once again my ideas have been updated (not exactly my wishlist but fun to speculate nonetheless).

          Duck - As mentioned, he is on product radar... he seems to be a bigger demand more then ever now. :P
          Diesel - Perfect for coming out with Duck...we need a better looking Diesel model.  Not to mention, very consitant with both old and newer series.
          Whiff - I know this may seem silly...but I'm gonna go with that rumor a while back with AnthonyP2 said long ago.  Since Donald and Douglas are being done and both he and I heard responses regarding possibilities for Duck, I'm thinking Whiff (The other engine who he had heard of being made), could come out next.  

          Rolling stock:
          Rocky - (Sorry Sparks), but out of all the characters in the newer series, Rocky seems to be extremely popular with the kids.  If it has a face on it, Thomas fans go crazy. :P  As much as I PREFER the breakdown train.

          Buildings/accessories:

          Farmer McColl's barn - For some reason, I can see this coming out with the recent release of Farmer McColl in the HO range....

          Post by: PerfectPercy on April 15, 2010, 04:12:33 PM
          Complete agreement with Rocky. The face sets it off. I quite like the breakdown train myself, it's classic.

          Narrator: Thomas went to go rescue James with the... Rocky?! *reads through script* I find this unappealing.

          Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on April 16, 2010, 12:51:22 AM
          Plus, the Brakedown Train featured heavily in the story where Thomas was first given his branch line. It is much more important in Thomas lore than Rocky.

          The kids are more familiar with Rocky. The whole having a face thing is substantial. I stand with what Chaz. I wish the breakdown train would be made but Rocky may come first.

          My own childhood contradicts this. I remember being more excited for a Wooden Breakdown Train than I was Catherine or even Peter Sam. I don't see Rocky in many YT videos for Wooden Railway or Trackmaster videos (nor is he a popular character to model).


          Maybe it's just me not wanting Bachmann to make a character that screams "commercialism" and -generic- kiddie quality..  :P

          Quite true. The same for me.

          Just a tip. You can edit your post. No need to double-post. I don't understand what you mean by "Lady and Diesel 10 have same amount."

          As for the rare characters, they haven't appeared nearly enough times to be high up on the list. Stepney is a classic engine and has appeared more than once, so he has more of a chance, but as for the others, it is a slim to none chance in my opinion.

          It seems like everyone is forgetting a couple of engines!! everyone is so quick to jump to the new series or the recent movies that have been made to try and predict what will be made after duck finally comes out! If bachmann is going to finish off the first few seasons and make the long time fans happy i would love to see boco especially with the release of bill and ben this year kinda works hand in hand if you can still remember that first episode where boco meets the twins for the first time. If bachmann plans to go that route then they can change the size a little and make daisy as well. These 2 engines where involved a lot more in storylines then most of the engines being suggested. Honestly tho if i had my way it would be nice if bachmann was to focus on more buildings then making new engines right away after duck comes out. maybe a few new rolling stock but come on it would be nice to have the farm everyone is suggesting and some of the smaller stations on the line would be nice as well. Or even if bachmann wants to get really nice they could make the mine that bill, ben, and mavis work out. Later me now what you all think!!

          P.S. I would love to see a flat car come out with the dragon on it for the carnival!!

          I don't know if they could create a whole quarry and/or mine. Duck and Boco are very good thoughts considering the engines being released this year. Daisy is a good one too. I wonder when Oliver will come along as well. After these releases I wouldn't mind some more rolling stock (more vans, trucks, ESPECIALLY coaches). As for the buildings, I would like to see a 2/3/4 road freight shed made. That would be a nice layout edition.

          I don't care what the crane is like, just as long as I can have a Sodor BreakDown crane, trust me that won't be cheap.
          I never got this.. Rockys been in.. how many episodes compared to the Breakdown Train, and how many seasons?  :P

          Rocky- about 1-2 seasons and 3-5 episodes

          Breakdown train: almost every season and about every other episode.

          True, but who knows.  Obviously a lot more of us older fans would go crazy if the breakdown train came out.  I would get it without a doubt, I never liked the Hornby model.  I barely used it, so I sold it to a friend who's put it to better use.  My actual wishlist would involve Oliver replacing Whiff and the breakdown train replacing Rocky... and maybe some room for the old coaches or red coaches. :P

          Ah, that's a good argument as well. The breakdown train has been around for longer. Breakdown train has been a cameo for a number of times, but Rocky has appeared a decent amount as well. He has been around for more than one to two seasons by the way. He appeared in season 10 (his debut), every season after that, and Hero of the Rails.

          http://ttte.wikia.com/wiki/Rocky (http://ttte.wikia.com/wiki/Rocky) (I have my sources.)

          What's this about Whiff? Is he being made too all of a sudden?

          I find the wikia unreliable. :P

          I have a bet for you Sparks. We on the Wikia know of a character who is to come out in season 14 (We're not to sure about the season, but it should be season 14), named Den. We have this info from a "secret source" before even SIF knows! So the bet is, when Den is officially announced, you have to not say anything bad about the Wikia again. If I'm wrong and Den is not released you can say anything you like about the Wikia! So, do you agree? If not that's OK. I'll still have the last laugh! :D Den's page: http://ttte.wikia.com/wiki/Den (http://ttte.wikia.com/wiki/Den)

          And do not ask me who or what the "secret source" is. I can't, and won't, tell! :P

          Anyway what I want. (Not what I think will be released but what I want.)
          1. Diesel
          2. Hiro
          3. Charlie

          First of all the name Den, just sounds plain lazy to me.  They already have a Dennis....

          But seriously, can we please not make bets like this on the forum and get back on topic? 



          What's this about Whiff? Is he being made too all of a sudden?

          Whiff has never been announced or confirmed, it was some rumor that was said by another user that he was being made or they were making plans with him.  But we don't have any confirmation on Whiff so don't get your hopes too high.

          Also, even if wikipedia was right this time, that doesn't mean they wont always be right after that.  No teacher in my school lets us use Wikipedia on projects because people can edit it with false information whenever they want.  It just could be some guy on his computer bored out of his mind just trying to spread lies and rumors.  :)

          I always take anything I read on the TTTE wikia with a pinch of salt. With no source of the "information", I'm not believing it. To be honest, the TTTE wikia is not something i'd rely on.

          But on topic, has anyone considered them producing Rosie and Diesel? Both are pretty prominent in the show of recent, and it would complete most of the line-up for S13.

          Emily isn't leaving the range, and neither are any of the engines.  None of them are going anytime soon.  Rolling stock I can see leaving but not engines.

          That's all true. But there are a few differences with this. 1. It's not Wikipedia, but the Thomas Wikia, which has a much closer network of people who edit there. 2. I and the person who originally recieved the info are admins there. 3. I know this other person really well. Almost as well as you can know a person over the internet.

          I always take anything I read on the TTTE wikia with a pinch of salt. With no source of the "information", I'm not believing it. To be honest, the TTTE wikia is not something i'd rely on.

          That might have been the case a few years ago, but in the past two years or so, the Wikia has had a big turn around. There's no spam that I know of, spammers are quickly blocked, and most pages are being protected so that unregistered users can't edit them.

          I don't blame you for not believing the info though. But this is something that has to be kept secret for the "third party" and, by expansion, for all Thomas fans.

          Anyway, BOT.

          A few things I'd like to add to my list.
          1. Rosie
          2. Harvey
          3. The red branchline coaches
          4. Oliver
          5. BoCo
          6. Daisy
          7. Trevor

          There isn't a Toad to begin with. Emily is more of a classic character than Spencer anyway. Why not take him from the range?  :P (Disregard that for being serious)

          I agree with the addition of BoCo, Duck, Oliver, more trucks and vans, and the red coaches. the old coaches pulled by James, Edward, and rarely Henry should be made as well.

          The "She Replaced Duck" thing never happened. It's just some fan excuse for her coincidental arrival happening just as Duck disappears. By Season 6-7 Duck had lost most of his personality anyway.
          In my opinion it's a little bit to coincidental, no offence to you Sparks  :-\

          Yeah. I know what you mean. It's become a merchandise driven show with even less depth than Transformers at its worst. Rosie... Spencer... Because of what engine classes they are, there's some real potential to them. But with the writing the way it is, we're unlikely to see that develop into anything. Rosie being a big fan of Thomas for instance. Because of the irony there that could become something. But no, just another wasted idea. Everyone from the old days is out-of-character now. The narrow-gauge stories nowadays all make me want to puke. And... I'll stop now.

          Stepney - I wouldn't be so sure if I were you.   Stepney would be really nice in all but there are other characters I think that would have to be made before we can get around to him.  Personally I think Stepney has a higher chance of being made compared to some of the newer characters like Billy, Charlie, Dennis, etc.  But I think characters like Duck and Oliver would have to be done first before Stepney.

          Derek - Not happening.  Only appeared in one episode.  Apart from a music video appearence, never seen or heard from again.

          Toad - Toad I think would come out around the time Oliver would be announced.  If that were the case I hope it wouldn't involve the same case with Toby and Henrietta where we had to wait TWO YEARS for her after Toby came out. XP

          about the idea that they shouldn't make unoriginal engines.
          If then... Percy isn't really a original.
          because he came around second season...

          Percy?  He came in Season 1.  He was one of the main seven.   

          Also, by seeing whats being made this year, I can bet that we are going to get Duck and/or Diesel.  Only thing is Diesel could be VERY fragile, considering his wheels and rods.  I never thought Bachmann would make Bill and Ben, but boy was I proved wrong!

          Just want to say in my opinion,

          I'm no expert on sales and all, but from what I'd guess, it's not wether they have had x number of roles or not, but wether the model will actually. Ok, sometimes episodes do help but if demand is high, such as for Stepney and Boco, then it's worth time putting models like that into production. Just bear that in mind all those who are saying

          "Won't be made, hasn't appeared many times."

          On youtube.com there was someone who used real chocolate to make a chocolate covered Percy, and was D261 the diesal from Bowled out or was that a Class 40, pretty sure it was a Class 40 though.

                                LITTLE CHILDREN!!!!

           When children see Twins they will want both donald AND douglas or bill AND Ben. They will end up buying both, causing more profit to Bachmann...

          You do realise Bachmann's models are based on the television series, right?  If you want RWS characters or RWS accurate models, you're better off making your own.  Bachmann isn't going down that road my friend.

          Here are some sets I have thought of,
          1. Henry, Red Coaches with vans to replace the coaches(switch out)
          2. Percy with one or two mail vans with red open cargo wagons
          3. Donald and Douglas with loaded freight cars
          4. James and some tar wagons ( says Douglas) :P
             And if Duck and Oliver are made Oliver with scruffy & T.T. 1-3 with Toad
             and or Duck with the red Branchline coaches ( 2 composite and one brake coach)

          There's no need to repeat what Sparks just said. There is a good possibility that it would be a van as we have been asking for one and it is still a "truck." A wagon could be T. T. 3 as well.

          Harvey would be a interesting model for Bachmann, chances for Whiff are unlikely, with Rosie though we do need another female engine. ( sorry if someone already said that ) Stepeny, maybe after Duck and Diesal. Diesal very likely, he's popular with older and newer fans alike. Duck also very likely considering the demand for him now with Thomas collectors. Oliver well if you make Duck and you have Donald and Douglas you might as well make engine 11 as well. ;)

          Also someone please respond by tommorow afternoon, my church's priest is coming for dinner and he wants to see the layout and I want to make a sign for my layout promoting my church. What font size sould I use for this while typing it. Please respond it will be greatly ppreciated. Thank you.

          That is irrelevant to the topic.

          I wonder if Harvey has a chance, let alone Stepney. Rosie isn't very important compared to Diesel for example. They seem to be going for the more classic characters as of recent times. Salty became classic due to his numerous TV appearances. Spencer seems to be a classic "bad guy" and Emily is one of the steam team (replacing Duck as it seems  :P).

          All the models have reasons for their release. Duck has good reasons, so does Oliver. Stepney has some sort of a chance, but not a huge one. He didn't appear too much, only a few episodes.

          it must have been one of those wagons that were shoved off into the backround of the yard, and wasnt seen to often. i would personally like to see some long vent vans. they appiered more in the older series. their about the same size as the mail cars.

          I would never even attempt it as they wouldn't resemble anything from the TV or RWS. They wouldn't be awkward looking, they wouldn't even be vans. The main van would be easier to change and you could mock-up the Ventilated van to different colors and it would still look fine.

          Hornby does make a model of the Diesel, but instead of a class 40 it is a class 37...(typical Hornby).  The face is decent enough though if you want to buy a class 40 diesel and paint it in the diesel's colors.  That'd be your best bet because Bachmann isn't gonna be making the diesel.

          Bachmann will never make the narrow gauge engines.  WootWoot11 points out perfectly all the reasons Bachmann will never make the narrow gauge engines in the thread he made about them.  Bachmann will not make them mainly because they would have to make new track.  And if they were to be made on normal HO track, well, then they would end up being the size of all the standard gauge engines, or their chassies would be sticking far outside of the shell.  :P Ha, now that would be a funny sight.  :D

          There is no Bachmann Stockist where I live, I've checked and the only one close to here is Philedelphia where the HQ of Bachmann is for the States. Also for the 2011 range here is a dream list of models.
          1. Duck
          2. Oliver and Toad
          3. Diseil 10 and Lady
          4. Hiro

          Well contact them then. Bachmann HQ should be able to get them in, I know i've managed to get American and European items from Bachmann in the UK, being based in the UK myself.

          a lot of thought goes into what we all want for engines and rolling stock for our Thomas collections but what I would like to see is more structures, vehicles and accessories.

          1. an actual Sodor style station
          2. The Sodor Mail van
          3. The Post man
          4. a Grade Crossing that has a track built in

          I can tell you right now those aren't gonna make it onto the Thomas and Friends range, and I'm not sure if Bachmann will make those alone outside of the Thomas range in general.  Guess we will have to wait and see. 

          Anyways here is what I think we'll see this next year:
          HO:

          Duck (90% sure he is happening)
          Diesel (85% sure he is happening)
          Red composite coach - I think everyone sees this coming into the range.
          Red brake coach - Ditto
          Farmer McColl's barn (Got Terence, and Farmer McColl himself, perfect!)
          Lighthouse (I figure it's gonna be late and announced in the range :P)

          Large:
          Toby, Henrietta, open wagon (blue), open wagon (red), brake van.

          That's Great! Also I have a idea for a famous location for the range. It's not a station, coal mine, harbor, quareer, Gordon's hill, or Henry's forest or tunnel. It is the Viaduct. As we all know this bridge has been seen in countless episodes and played a big role in T.A.T.M.R. especially in the chase seen. Who could forget that? Also, I think it would be nice to have a bridge in the range that is actually Thomas related.

          There is no Casey Junior & Friends brand. They are all different characters from different stories, sorting the copyright out for all of them to come under one banner would be a nightmare.

          And BTW, if you are wanting Standard Gauge stock to go with your G scale items, you don't want Gauge 3. You want G64, I'm re gauging my Bachmann Thomas items to fit it in an effort to find a cheap source for a power unit.

          not really. there is a little "peg",i guess you would call it, on the back of each buffer. The peg goes in a hole on the footplate, then the peg is melted so the buffer will stay. that also goes for the lamps, whistles, hooks, lamp irons, break pipes, ect...

          Who here thinks that Bachmann should sell the items in the Thomas Holiday set individually instead of buying the whole set or sell Holiday Thomas seperately and buy the cars in on small set like what Trackmaster does with some of their frieght cars. It could also work with other cars like buying three at one price like in one box could be T.T. 1, T.T. 2, & Scruffy or T.T. 3 or Milk van, Cream van, rasberry syrup van or V.Van, catlle truck and salt van in a diffrent set without the transformer,t racks ext. I think for 2011 Bachmann should start doing something like that.

          Two things I have got ideas on, not sure if they would be viable to do though. Perhaps a collectors range for modellers 14+, like Hornby did with some of their models?  ;)

          1, Truck faces, self adhesive:

          Don't get me wrong, Bachmann make a nice, varied range of wagons for the locomotives to pull, but one thing I think would be a benefit would be having a range of molded faces, that can be placed onto existing wagons.

          Lets say we have a pack of 8 different faces, we can then sell those to people wanting to upgrade their existing rolling stock. By having them, we could potentially use them to make each wagon unique, and more like the television series.

          I appreciate that this may seem a far-fetched idea, but it would be nice to have, even as spares. It may be a gamble, yes, but what venture wasn't. I'm sure Kader had doubts that the Thomas range, On30 range and even Plasticville would be successful at some point.

          2, Scale figures:

          Don't get me wrong, the figures Bachmann make are nice, but the scale is sadly well off. It's a shame too, as it spoils it. Many children are prone to picking up on small details, and a range of figures, perhaps with a molded circular base would be ideal for those wanting to just run Thomas, or make a full fledged railroad.

          If we could have figures, scale at 1:87 or even 1:76, it would be nice. I'm sure they would sell with people outside of the Thomas range too, as I have seen with many items, namely the Emily's Coach models.

          ---

          I know I'm not a regular buyer of Bachmann Thomas items, nor a US citizen, but I feel these are two small items that would do well in the range, and expand it with the cost of tooling up new chassis.

          (Plastic molding would be the only thing needed, I'd imagine you could do one pattern and make it work for a product run)

          i agree with the molded faces w/t adhesive and that they should make the old weathered wagons like in the flying kipper episodes both are different some look  like the mail trucks others the vent van but just painted brown and weathered to look old

          Jack you have a good point... we do need to scale figures for a Thomas Bachmann layout.  Or maybe different sets of five or six.  An example of this would be:

          Sir Topham Hatt
          Mrs. Kindley
          Two workman
          ...the butler! :D

          Not to mention the sets too he listed would be well over $200 each. And there would definitly not be DCC equipped engines, and an EZ Command all in the same set. Also, the one with Gordon would also be costly. Gordon's set alone cost over $100, then add on NG engines and track? Way too expensive. And I just realized that I had the 666th post. lol

          Jack you have a good point... we do need to scale figures for a Thomas Bachmann layout.  Or maybe different sets of five or six.  An example of this would be:

          Sir Topham Hatt
          Mrs. Kindley
          Two workman
          ...the butler! :D

          Something like that for a pair of to scale figures for the Thomas range would be great.

          Who would say that they were too small? Not too different from Percy. He's kinda small.

          As for the spectacular list of narrow gauge items... Wow. Uh, I don't foresee most of of that ever being released (sorry that's as subtle as I could put it). I don't see Bachmann making DCC Thomas engines anytime soon either.

          Maybe you could get a couple of kits and track, etc. and make a layout... Sounds like you want the whole Skarloey Railway...

          I want to see the. Jet engine! It was a real popular episode in the series and would actually not be hard to build. A small box and a metal tube attatched to a flat car. It could cost $15-20 and i'd buy 1 for laughs (replace the hook n loop with knuckles of coarse.  ;)

          It would cost more because if you wanted it to be the real "Jet Engine" flat car, it would need a motor if it were to really have the working jet (which would probably be its own motor. This own motor would run by itself under DC power though, so there goes realism, and whenever it is needed to be pulled, the Jet would be on. :P ::)

          Just a thought if it were to be realistic with an engine.

          Another thought would be no motor... but that would be boring! :P ;D

          Who here thinks that Bachmann should sell the items in the Thomas Holiday set individually instead of buying the whole set or sell Holiday Thomas seperately and buy the cars in on small set like what Trackmaster does with some of their frieght cars. It could also work with other cars like buying three at one price like in one box could be T.T. 1, T.T. 2, & Scruffy or T.T. 3 or Milk van, Cream van, rasberry syrup van or V.Van, catlle truck and salt van in a diffrent set without the transformer,t racks ext. I think for 2011 Bachmann should start doing something like that.
          i was actually thinking something like that! but when i imagined it, it was bill and ben, and donald and douglas, or (if bachmann comes out with them) Oliver, Toad, and S. C. Ruffey

          They could also do the same with say Thomas, Annie, and Clarabel and or Toby and Hennrietta and if they are ever made... Duck and a red branchline composite coach and a red branch line brake coach.

          As you were speaking of the Jet Engine, the Take Along version would be too small to work with, so..... it would be more complicated. The Tomy/Trackmaster Jet Engine would also be complicated because if someone wanted to make the engine glow or work like it should, we would be back where jettrainfan was talking about wiring a light bulb.

          If anything let Bachmann deal with it.  :P

          If Donald and Douglas are delayed (which hopefully they won't) then I could see this happening in the HO Thomas range next year:
          Donald and Douglas - If delayed, then confirmed.
          Duck - I don't need to explain, now do I? :P
          Spiteful Brake van - PERFECT for this kind of delay.  Maybe Bachmann could rename it "Troublesome brake van" but it seems appropriate to have this guy come out in the range with Donald and Douglas. 
          Both red composite and brake coach - We've been expecting these to come out for a while now, hopefully they'll be out sooner than later. :)
          Trevor the Traction Engine - Accessory for the year (since this year it's farmer mccoll and last year it was Terence).
          Farmer McColl's barn - Kinda seems likely in terms of buildings in the HO range.
          Knapford kit - I'm expecting this one to be delayed too. :P

          Easy -

          1. Donald and Douglas are coming out, so perfect timing.

          2. Easy to make, just make a brake van (hopefully with improvements) and add a face. 

          Now I know the idea may seem silly but when you think about it, SC Ruffey was made, and his story is no different then the spiteful brake vans and Bachmann still made him (Along with Hornby, Tomix, etc.).  SC Ruffey is an easy one to make...just like the spiteful brake van.

          Well then here is how to make a HO spiteful brakevan you will need a Bachmann Thomas and Friends Brakevan, a hot glue gun, and a learning curve spiteful brakevan face. All you do is take the brakevan put a little hot glue on the back of it then place the the spiteful brakevan's face on it, it's that simple!

          I thought I'd update my predictions because I can. :)

          Engines:
          Duck - I don't need to explain again, do I? :P
          Donald and Douglas - Confirmed to be delayed
          Diesel - A good engine to be announced with Duck that year

          Rolling stock:
          Flat car with logs - I know it's not much, but since Bachmann is making smaller amounts of rolling stock each year, I'm thinking this might be a good one.

          Accessories:
          Trevor - Still have hope for this one.
          Windmill - New idea I thought of recently, it obviously won't be electric but it would still look nice for the TTTE range.

          lol i know i have them but seriously what are the chances?

          In my opinion I would think along the lines of 50/50. I was thinking about this the other day. Think of the troublesome trucks they produce, then the cargo car, then the blue and red wagons. It's the same thing. I doubt it on the other hand though. The TV series as of now is known to have a larger variety of open wagons than any other piece of rolling stock. The brown CCT vans haven't been seen since season 1, so that is doubtful. As for the brown salt van, who knows? I recall seeing the brown salt vans in the yards in the more recent seasons.

          What hurts to make your own though? Honestly, like Chaz said, just a lick of paint can create a whole new piece of rolling stock.

          I literally can see 50% of what you said coming out. :P  Here's why:
          Isabel - Bachmann isn't doing RWS characters.  Look at what happened to Fred and Ricketty.  ::)
          Lady - You might as well make your own, Bachmann won't be making Lady anytime soon.  Have a look at ThompsonLine's Lady model, that looks very impressive.
          Old Slow coach - I can see this being a 50/50 just because Bachmann is somewhat running out of rolling stock ideas but at the same time have a better variety of options out there for rolling stock.  Guess we can only wait and see, since rolling stock these days can always be a surprise.  Troublesome Truck #3 and the six ton wagon have proved that to us.
          Pull apart SC Ruffey - Umm.. no.  I don't think Bachmann would make something like that for their Thomas range.  If you really want one just get a SC Ruffey model and a large hammer....
          Stepney - I'd personally would love to see Stepney come out, but I'm not seeing so much of a chance for him, unless if maybe Duck and Oliver came out next year.

          The pop-apart Scruffy would be cool, but little kids would loose the parts, and it would be kinda annoying if I have a rough shunt and Scruffy always falls apart and derails cars.

          Wonder if Bachman is going to make Toad?

          Toad would be easy for them, certainly. They have the tooling already, and in Toad's case I can think of no reason for them not to recycle it. Nearly all the other rolling stock is recycled Branchline tooling.

          This would be a good way to do pop-apart Scruffey: The sections peg together, like with snap-together kits. There are slide latches that lock the pop-off sections in. To make him come apart, release the latches and then have and engine try to pull him. To keep him intact for running, leave the latches locked. Or maybe have a spring-loaded push-button mechanism to pop him apart.

          Referring back to Chaz's comment to ZTS (take note I'm still stuck with using my phone and I am limited to most things...like quoting :P), Thompsonline's Lady model is quite magnificent. I rented her from him for a few days to do some filming and she is absolutely fantastic! Too bad she's not in my hands anymore... :-\ Once I get a new computer, when ever that will be, I'll upload some test shots.

          And do NOT bug Thompsonline to rent out his Lady model. We are close friends and and he let me use her for a reason. Just leave the poor man alone :)

          BoCo would be very nice to see and i have seen a lot of comments in numerous places that BoCo should return in CGI

          Daisy on the other hand is less likely i still have seen comments to bring her back but not as much as BoCo, and also i know either Bachmann-Branchline or Hornby made Daisy's prototype it looks exactly like her just in darker green and with no face  :P

          After examining the range, my guess for a good possibility is Hank. And not just because Bachmann have a K4 tooling already.

          Hank could use the same base mechanism that Henry, Spencer and Gordon already use. By doing this, it means that Hank could be released quicker than some other models have been, and as such, would make for an easy model for Bachmann to make.

          Plus, it would be a nice model to own. :)

          But there's just one thing about that. Since OO scale is abut larger than HO, and Bachmann needs to make thier trains thr same size as Hornby's, they would need to make a whole new mold. Over all, Bachmann would need to make a whole new mold for Hank, to make the size the same.

          Bachmann can just make a new mould to suite the chassis they already have. I was never talking about using the K4 moulds they already have. :/

          JD417, both Bachmann and Hornby make Class 101s, that is true. Hornby may well one day retool the old Triang 101 mold for it to have a driver cab on either end of a single car, and slap Daisy's face on it. But a Bachmann Daisy would have to be a new mold, because of both the toy safety laws and the fact that they don't have a less-detailed older tooling to repurpose.

          I don't see any reason for Bachmann to make Hank for some good reasons:

          1. Not a well known character, was famous for about a year, then completely ignored.  He's not even a background character now. 

          2. Only appeared in ONE episode which was his introduction episode.  Never seen or even mentioned again after that.  Characters like Stanley, Rosie, even Whiff are more convincing then Hank is at this point.  Maybe even Hiro...

          One other thing I'd like to throw out there, Bachmann is not gonna repaint one of their K4s to make Hank...Bachmann is not like Hornby. :)  He will have new tooling altogether, I can guarantee you that.

          See also what I keep saying about US toy safety regs for why an existing tooling won't be adapted for anybody. Plus, in Hank's case it would be out of scale. The Bachmann K4s are H0, the Thomas range is 00.

          Chaz, Hank's wheels or spares of them do appear in Hero of the Rails in the Sodor Steamworks.

          Again... That does not count as an appearance or even cameo or anything of the sort made by Hank...  For all we know hit could have put some random spare wheels that coincidently were like Hank's.  If Hank was at the steamworks being repaired that'd be one thing....

          Fine. A small nod to Hank's existence, then.

          Yes, Hank was a Hi-then-bye character, and is unlikely to receive a Bachmann model at this time.

          I am all for seeing BoCo produced by Bachmann. I would love it. I happen to want a model of him. And we've got Bill and Ben now, so who else will keep Gordon safe? ;)

          Edward says hi. :P   But I would in all seriousness would love to see Boco make it to the range.  If Bachmann really is aiming to make more season 2 characters then maybe Boco would have a chance after characters like Duck and Diesel are made first.  Daisy would be nice too but maybe that might be pushing it.

          I dare say that if enough interest is shown in having models of the older characters, such as Boco, Diasy etc, then Bachmann may even consider making models of them. It all depends on demands.
          Boco though would be good for non-thomas modellers too who want a class 28 CoBo model, and the experienced could certainly adapt a bachmann model of him. I know I'm planning to make a stirling single from an Emily loco in the upcoming months....

          The cct vans are pretty much just the mail cars painted brown. the old van is the front van in the runaway train in the episode "a close shave" and the conflat is already  made(i think). its just the rf container wagon.

          LOL, valid point Mr. Clearwater.

          My questions/statements are the following:


          Why is there a redesign need for Thomas and his coaches?

          When you say season 1 and 2 express coaches, they have already been made, but take into account that the reds have been retired (WHY?! :'(), so that is kind of irrelevant.

          Why redesign Bertie and Cranky? They look just fine, besides the crank knob on Cranky, but that is there for obvious reasons.

          Also, who's Sir Lowham Hatt?

          All my reasoning for Thomas, Percy and James being revamped is justified here: http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/board/index.php/topic,9227.0.html

          Well for Thomas, some of the things have never been noticeable by me, such as the un-smooth running (he runs great for me, maybe he just faults on insulated point frogs). Others are just minor, such as the little details needed to be changed. The front coupler can be easily added by anyone with enough perseverance. But, considering Thomas isn't absolutely perfect... I guess I give in to that...

          As for the season 1 and 2 coaches: I know what they look like. :P Bachmann also seemed to make an attempt on the season 2 coaches, but that was mixed with the current express coaches and something not really even related to the TV series. I could agree to a retooling of the express coaches, but they kind of already have the season 2 coaches.

          Also, with Annie and Clarabel, what is special about the LS models that makes a redesign necessary?

          ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

          I definitely agree with the ideas of the following:

          Duck
          Diesel
          Breakdown Train
          Branch Line Coaches
          Troublesome Vans

          What do you mean, "the season two coaches"?  ??? The bogie coaches with the red stripe instead of a green one? Same coach class, different livery. As for those shots from "Cows", same coach class seen in Season 1 (one of the Southern Railway's Maunsell designs), except they were mistakenly assembled without the undercarriage for the filming of that episode. But still the same kit.

          Personally I like how Bachmanns coaches look better than the TV series coaches do

          Hmm...

          (http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR6T4i_3b_EbANVCuMuzj0fF_Lx2MP5QNoxsPBplrHdMd2G7j0&t=1&usg=__5hRupox4QOEmI1w0ZjyHTwUFYA4=)

          and

          (http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090320231614/ttte/images/c/cf/RedExpressCoaches.png)

          It is a close call for me. There is really nothing wrong with Bachmann's Express Coaches nor Season 2's. The cream and red (almost burgundy) seems better compared to the off-white and red.

          Look at the large scale annie & clarabel models & If snowflakeTH wants thomas redesigned then I'm with him until it happens.

          I just did. They look spectacular!

          I would like to make a reasonable wishlist.

          Engines:

          Duck: Duck is an extremely popular engine, and the majority of people that want another thomas character is duck. plus, he's a major character. or rather was, until the show went to crap.... Read the Railway series.............

          Diesel: Diesel is a popular and widely recognized character in the show for many years now. He provides a good antagonist in the show. and having another diesel is nice as well.

          Murdoch: Murdoch is sodor's biggest locomotive, not to mention one of the best looking. Be nice to have a big engine like him pulling several cars or coaches. He also completes the Emily Spencer models, considering he was introduced the same time they were.

          BoCo: BoCo Would really make the range totally awesome. BoCo would make another EXCELLENT diesel to the thomas range. He's a good looking engine. Many people would really like to have him. He's a major supporting character in the books, as well as the earlier thomas TV show. plus he's my favorite Engine after all. :D

          Oliver: Oliver would make the final addition to the orginal core group of characters. He also works with Duck, Donald and Douglas. cant have the 3 D's without him!

          Stepney: Stepney was a prominent character in the show. He's a visiting engine like Spencer. like Spencer he's quite popular among fans.

          Arthur: Arthur would make another excellent tank engine to even out the tender engines. Plus He'd make another nice red engine. :P

          I don't care at all about the new thomas characters, that have been introduced these past few seasons. they're dumb and lack true character. they've only been introduced for marketing purposes and to make the show seem not sexist. even though it never was. Plus, they don't even have a true thomas charm to them. they completely ruin the series. thomas is a British show, and book series about BRITISH ENGINES ON A BRITISH RAILWAY. not about emigration from exotic countries to make the show "politically correct" which is ridiculous. If Bachmann were to make them, don't make them now. make them after the classic characters. more adults, and adolescence collect the actual MODEL THOMAS range. few children do.

          Rolling stock:
          Red, Tan, or old branch line coaches: these types of coaches were extremely prominent in the show in it's earlier days. and they go with all the tank engines as they used them the most often in the show. they also really would highlight the engines as well.

          the Break down train: Not seen so much these day's but every railway needs a breakdown train. It's been seen a lot over the years, many people seem to really want it. It would also need the works coach.

          Vans with faces: some troublesome vans to highlight the thomasness more.

          China Clay trucks: bill Ben, and BoCo work with these trucks as well as Edward. china clay is one of sodor's primary minerals. It is mentioned and seen a lot.

          Small flat wagons: just some small flat goods wagons. to make a good goods train.

          salt wagons: same as above.

          Chinese dragon: a fun piece to add to a set to give it some character. also a very popular and well known piece of rolling stock.

          Christmas tree on flat wagon: seen a few times. be good for the holidays.

          pieces of cargo would be nice to add to wagons, like fish, crates, tarps, etc......

          Caroline the car, and some railway staff would really even things out a lot too. Mrs. kindley too.

          snow plows for thomas, Donald, Douglas, Henry, James, Gordon, and duck: cool accessory they're seen often in the show. Donald and Douglas plow snow all the time.

          That's really all the things I could see bachmann making......

          Surprised nobody has suggested a Bachmann Elizabeth yet...

          Elizabeth wouldn't look bad at all, I think she'd be a nice addition.  I wouldn't get her though. :P  The only road characters I would get at this point would be Trevor, Bulgy (Red), and George.  The last two sound a bit unlikely... :/  But I think Trevor has an excellent chance of coming out. :)

          Caroline the car, and some railway staff would really even things out a lot too. Mrs. kindley too.

          snow plows for thomas, Donald, Douglas, Henry, James, Gordon, and duck: cool accessory they're seen often in the show. Donald and Douglas plow snow all the time.

          That's really all the things I could see bachmann making......

          (No offense, but) HA! "Reasonable"... When I see a reasonable wishlist, even from MYSELF, I will let you know. I haven't seen one "reasonable" wish-list. Now, that's funny.

          Surprised nobody has suggested a Bachmann Elizabeth yet...

          Elizabeth wouldn't look bad at all, I think she'd be a nice addition.  I wouldn't get her though. :P  The only road characters I would get at this point would be Trevor, Bulgy (Red), and George.  The last two sound a bit unlikely... :/  But I think Trevor has an excellent chance of coming out. :)

          I don't think people have said much about Elizabeth because of the lack of appearance mixed with lack of episodes, but there are exceptions, such as HIT freaks saying Hank and Murdoch should be made (I'm not opposed I'm just speaking for my cause.)

          I know everyone is putting in their two cents so here's mine:
          I would like to see Duck, Oliver, Toad, Stepney, Deisel, the branchline coaches, reproduction of the red express coaches, and a more varied range of freight rolling stock.
          My reasons area as follows: Duck, Oliver, Toad, and Diesel wrap up the engines 1-11 and the little group they form with Donald and Douglas. They have all seen considerable amounts of time on the show and are important characters. The branchline coaches, both red and tan, should be made to give some passenger variety to the tank engines, the over all rolling stock, and the fact they they appear quit often. The red coaches should come back because I think they are good coaches seen often. Finally, I think that Bachmann should make more freight cars. There are simply just no types other than the tankers, coal trucks, mail van, a box car,and flat bed. I feel there should be salt cars, multiple "coal cars" minus the coal and maybe with some cargo or tarp coverings, and some more box cars.
          Well that's it, so...

          I have a couple words: the salt van and cattle wagon were made and released (good rolling stock, I say).

          There are the Troublesome Trucks and the wagons in general (red, blue, tan). As for more box vans, you could have at it with some fine paint. That would do the trick with the ventilated van. The tarp coverings is a smart idea. They will probably (if at all) be released with a wagon of some sort. I would like to add that some loads for the wagons would be nice.

          Didn't know they do that... Hmm. Would Bachmann stoop down to copying others, though? ;)

          I do like the idea of loads though. Maybe they could have chains so it would look cool ( 8)) to have Cranky lift them. Now that reminds me that I have to get some chains that small anyways... Anybody know where I can get small chains for my engines and layout? (I'm trying to avoid jewelry chains if possible)

          I understand ferdinand, but bachmann will not build an HO scale Bear harbor co. locomotive because of their size and not enough room in the boiler, so in conclusion, Bash and Dash will not be HO scale in the Bachmann future.

          Well, Edward's boiler is quite small thinking about it. Comparing him with B&D they don't look much difference in size.... so..... it's still possible eh?

          But I'd much prefer other characters before these guys. Stepney, Stanley etc from older episodes rather than all new characters......

          I agree with you there. Older, more established characters before newer ones.  I could really see Bachmann doing someone like Diesel or Bulgy, or Stanley perhaps. He's been featured in the last few seasons, i would imagine kids would want him zooming around their layouts with some trucks, maybe try and re-enact the Great Waterton Tower falling over..
           I would really like it, though, if Bachmann would introduce Arthur or Duck to thier range. More duck than arthur for me, anyway. And what's duck without oliver and douglas without toad? ... Hornby's made a pretty good Oliver already, and Toad's awesome from their range, but here anything is possible apparently.
          yay  :P

          I have to agree, but you don't know how much money HiT pays for the rights of Thomas. Look at it this way, at least Thomas is still on TV. But, I think it is time to go back to the RWS guidelines. I would say keep Emily, Spencer, etc. on as cameo engines or engines from the Mainland who are visiting or on lease, but don't give them major roles anymore. If they did one RWS episode a season I would be happy and so would many other fans. But, they have said writing will improve. So lets hope sentences like "Thomas was sad." and "He chuffed away." are written out. Sure they make sense, but add some "spice", as my English teacher calls it, to the sentence. So it is like "Thomas chuffed away as fast as he could". I swear, my 3 year old neighbor has a better sentence building ability than HiT's writers. And she is in the age range they aim at.

          The new charecters wouldn't be as anoying if they had some kind of story or personality. I'd like to see a few more episodes a season based on the books. Especially Wilbert the forest engine. The show needs so good wrighters. Like David Minton. And better voice cast. UK version sounds like a bunch of children and the us version isn't much better. However I did make a comparason to Henry being woody allen. Never mind back on thread. Wish list.
          Engines:

          I'm surprised. After all of this "down with Emily, up with Molly," I wonder why she isn't on your wishlist SCOTTISH RAILWAYS. ;)

          I just started to think about when Duck and Oliver are eventually released, at least they are expected, I am trying to consider what I really would want to be made. I guess I will base my wishes on new rolling stock and maybe a few engines.

          "The" List:

          Engines:
          Duck*** - next year maybe?
          Oliver** - next year maybe?

          BoCo
          Daisy?
          Stepney?

          Stock:
          Red Branch Coaches***
          Some sort of closed van (other than a ventilated van)**
          Toad** - next year with Oliver?

          Log wagon with logs (identical to the paint drum wagon, only with the logs)
          Troublesome Truck #4
          CCT Van?
          China Clay Wagons?

          It was basically a ramble of ideas, some nonsense, some pretty considerable. For example, the log wagon production would be decently inexpensive. All Bachmann would need to do is make the loads (logs/lumber/wood) and they might want to paint the wagon a different color (charcoal gray possibly?).

          The red branch coaches are in close relationship with Annie and Clarabel. They are still popular. There seems to only be two main sets of coaches used in the TV series: express coaches and the branchline coaches. It is time we get more branchline coaches.

          S.C. Ruffey is also a long-time model and he is worthless without Oliver to rough him up a bit.  ;) Oliver and his companion Toad are high on my list, though not as incredibly high as Duck ;D.


          I surely hope that the Bach-man reads this thread, and that Bachmann Trains considers the highly desired engines that we longingly hope for and talk of throughout the forum. :)

          Have a nice day, all!

          PerfectP

          Engines
          Duck-Extremely popular character; high demand; Scottish Twin chassis can be used.

          It's all your own opinions but can we please not continue with this down with and up with engines? It may get out of hand. Meanwhile, continuing from last page, I have some more HO and Large ideas.

          HO
          Rolling Stock:
          Grey Open Wagon with Milk Churns

          Sodor Scenery:
          Footbridge

          Blue Open Wagon

          Sets:
          James' Freight Train set (James, Milk Tanker, Fuel Tanker, oval of track etc) (I think that one's a little far-fetched)

          Post by: Cirkit:) on March 12, 2011, 09:16:11 PM
          Here's what I got:
          -Engines:
          -Duck: to fill the void between number's 7 and 9. He's the hardworking type, and I'm sure many fans would like to have him in their collections.
          -Molly: seen prominently in the background of the latter pre-CG series pulling trains and actually doing work. Another female to the line would make the soccer moms (:P) happy, and it Would be a cheap way for non-Thomas modellers to get their hands on a Claude Hamilton. and really I just like the way she looks.
          -Arry and Bert: Modify the Diesel mould a little and you've got them easy. Saves cash making a completely different mould for them too. Faces would be the same way. That, and i think we need more diesels for the range.

          Rolling Stock:
          -The Works Unit Coach: why not? it's been seen frequently in the pre and CG seasons, and with it we could release:
          -The Breakdown Crane: Just a crane, maybe included in a pack with a flatbed. Would be easier to produce than Rocky, and much more practical for layouts with limited space. And I imagine it would look much better with the British engines than the American cranes..
          - The Red Coaches- Passenger and Brake: They're seen frequently in the background, pre CG and in the most recent series too, being pulled about by James, Percy, or another engine. It would be better for the kiddies to have their engines pull 'different' coaches instead of pulling 'Emilys', I think. And the mould could simply be Annie/Clarabel's but edited a little( the roof and the brake coach's guard's compartment obviously)
          -... can't think of any others atm.

          I'll update this later.

          I've said who I want to be made. We all have our opinions on engines and series. Basicly we should cut the whole up down thing. respect each others opinions and this is a wish list, don't mean bachmann's gonna make them, and if they do make engines that we're up or down with don't mean you have to buy them. Weather its Rosie, whiff, Duck, Oliver, Stepney, or any other engine. ya no.

          I'd be fine with Rosie personally, it'd mean a good RTR USA tank (and possibly something for the Junior range?  ;))

          i honestly wish the Junior range would expand more, like how bachmann used thomas and percy's moulding for 2 engines (wonder what ever happened to them, maybe got discontinued :-\) but that shape would be a good fit for the junior range now we have a saddle tank, a boxy diesel, and then rosie could be a rectangular one, idk just seems like she would look good in red and black like the thomas and percy did

          like how bachmann used thomas and percy's moulding for 2 engines (wonder what ever happened to them, maybe got discontinued :-\ )

          From what I heard Bachmann were made to drop them because of their use of the Thomas and Percy moulding, meaning people could buy those and make and easy pair of cheap Thomas engines. (Heard from a UK Model shop-keeper)
          That could be why Hornby don't release E2's anymore...

          For Christmas, I wish that the Thomas Christmas set should be sold seperatley in a pack minus the track and transformer, sorta like Trackmster does in this example with just freight cars except for Bachmann it would be Thomas plus the three cars.

          Yes I was soory about that, but if the engine were to have the support base or whatever that holds the plow on Thomas I believe it should work. I made plows for my D&D out of paper they don't look to bad actually.

          Yea but that's not really profitable. It would be great but they have many ther things to work on. Thomas is only one part of their large company. I would however love for them to focus more on the HO range than the Large Scale range.

          I know, that's why I wish they would focus a bit less on Real-life locomotives (doesn't mean completely stop making them, but just tone down a bit on making them) and focus on Thomas more... especially since in a year or 2, there'll be the WWII movie. I heard the merchandise for that movie will be aimed at an older audience... :-\

          Yes I know what you meant I'm just saying it won't happen, the Thomas market just isn't big enough to warrant that.

          You can get items from Bachmann's Branchline range in the states, as long as you go to a Bachmann dealer. It may take time, but they should be able to get items from any of Bachmann's ranges in for you.

          If I haven't already posted here, my wishlist pretty much follows what everyone else has put up here.

          Engines being Oliver after Duck, 'Arry and Bert to reuse the Diesel mold, Rosie for another female engine (and because I really really like the character), and/or perhaps BoCo for a nice change of things.

          The desired rolling stock follows the flock, being the original Breakdown Crane, The Works Unit Coach to go with the crane, a new Troublesome Truck(possibly like the van in "A Close Shave"), and Toad to go with Oliver. The Red Branch Line Coaches are also a possibility, however I would like to see the return of the Red Express Coaches first..

          In terms of off road things, Trevor or Bulgy would be high on my list, followed close by The Fat Controller's Hatt-Blue Car and I would like to see a building or two come into the range. Perhaps a Signal Box or "Wellsworth Station".

          I'd expect to see Toby or even Diesel follow the current crop in the Large Scale range, if the range continues to sell well.


          But what I'd like to see most of all, in HO, is a special set featuring an engine (say Thomas) with an exclusive face to that set. The other Thomas competitor for HO/OO has done such a thing to promote a Thomas special; why not give it a go? Said set would most likely feature Thomas(or another engine) with 3 to 4 trucks and an oval of track as usual, perhaps even a siding with buffers.. but the special thing about the set would be the engine's face. If the theme were "Hard at Work", Thomas would be featured with a tired face, or a straining face like in the original Television series, perhaps with red cheeks. The loco itself could be 'dirtied up' with coal dust specks or dirt, to make him look like he's been working hard as the set name suggests.

          That's something I'd really like to see from (in my opinion) the best big Thomas & Friends HO model-makers out there. :)

          HO SCALE


          Oliver- classic, and would be obvious after making Duck

          Molly- wild card, they already have a chassis

          Rosie- popular, and interesting to the children

          Boco & Daisy- classic, and cheap because they share a chassis

          the fatts- cleary needed, also fatty's car with a motor

          EDIT: Why haven't Bachmann  made Diesel 10? They have the class, and a loco.  ???

            I think Bachmann would do great with these!    :)

          Thanks to the first :)
          Just remembered that there is a TNP set like that, but without the oval of track.
          As a matter of fact, got it as winnings from a contest today..!

          Didn't know there was one. Box looks okay to me..

          Sparks, I think your wishlist is quite nice. I would expect, out of the three sets, Mavis' to become a reality. Pax has proven a great, fresh character, and I wouldn't mind seeing those scrap wagons either.

          So the Hard At Work set would be like the Hornby Great Discovery set! Only Annie and Clarabel ( I know they are not included! ) wouldn't be dirtied as well. Now, my wishlist!

          HO scale loco's
          Oliver- It's obvious with the Duck reveal that he should come. Plus, that would make 1-11!
          Stepney- Always been a fave of mine.
          Rosie- It would make sense, so they can have another female engine.
          Arry and Bert- pretty much why everyone else wants the Iron twins. Same Chassis as Diesel.

          HO scale rolling stock
          Toad- If they release Oliver, they HAVE to give him his brake van, Toad.
          Red branchline Coaches- We need more coaches. And they are classic, appearing in almost every season since season 2.
          Red Express Coaches- Yes, it would be nice for them to come back. They are probably rare!
          Tar Tanker- Why'd they take this one away? It's a classic! I am lucky enough to have one, but to discontinue them? Bring it back!
          Blue Express Coaches- Just my wild card. It would be sweet to see them come out, and since Blue is my favourite colour, I'd like them!

          HO scale Set's
          The busy Express- based on Cirkit:)'s hard at work set, it would include Gordon with an exclusive face, probably a smirk, two Express coaches, a brake one, loop of track, possibly a station, and all the stuff needed to control the loco.
          The Twins trouble- it is a Bill and Ben quarry set, which would include Bill and Ben, some no face troublesome trucks with an exclusive load of stone, a loop of track, a hopper, and the controll stuff.
          Oliver's freight run- as the name suggests, it would include Oliver, Toad, 2 fuel tanks, S.C. Ruffey, 2 Troublesome#1 trucks, 2 Troublesome#2 trucks, a Troublesome Truck#3, a Milk Tanker, an Oil Tanker, Red Open Truck, Coal Truck, a Salt Wagon, a Ventilated Van, a loop of track, and all of the control stuff.

He's not frequently used in the show, he's not as popular to the target audience, and the claw would require too many parts that could break off easily.

          I don't see him happening any time soon. Luckily, that is why there is something in model railway making called 'kitbashing'.

          One other small thing- while Molly does share the same wheel arrangement as Edward, her wheels are bigger, and would require a longer and most likely new chassis to work for the character. I wouldn't mind seeing her appear in the range either.

          Maybe Topham's car wouldn't be powered, unlikely for a kid's range, but to have a representation of TFC's car on any Thomas layout would be welcome. :)

          Honestly, I'm surprised Bachmann HASN'T announced something like this for the Thomas line.  It'd be be easy enough for them to pull off with the ex-mainline tooling, and it'd be a fun feature for the kids to throw little animals or any other load into the van.  It'd be a big seller amongst older and newer fans, that's for sure!

          the sliding door Ventilated Vans could be a suitable tooling for Troublesome Truck #4 if the discontinued Salt van is not used or be a suitable tooling for Troublesome Truck #5.

          I wouldn't mind seeing that Ore Wagon make its way into the Thomas range... a simple lick of paint, and behold- a new Thomas truck!

          I wonder what Troublesome Truck 4 will be like.. maybe it will be a wagon with fewer planks, set low to the ground.. like one of the trucks seen in "Percy's Predicament", or in "Busy Going Backwards"?
          I do wonder.

          I don't know about the tankers, but what sort of face are you talking about?

          Something like the big van at the end of the train that chased Duck in "A Close Shave for Duck", or are you thinking of something not so cheery?

          I imagine the next truck will be CG-faced, if we are to follow the current trend in the releases..

          by the way bachmann, if you are doing Molly, do not make the mistake of using her large prototype face instead of her smaller face used in the final model like the other merchandise did, save for TOMY wind up trains.

          Well, that sounds like a very solid wishlist for the next two or three years to come, ModelTrainFan538. I would imagine a wildcard 'New Series' character popping up, like Jeremy did this year, or another one-off joining the range.. perhaps a Lorry would do?

          If Stepney were ever introduced from Bachmann, something tells me they'd find a way to reuse No. 55's wheels and another character's motor/etc, like Salty, to introduce another character into the range.. like Rosie.
          I just really want to see Rosie in the range. She's a personal favorite of the newer characters for me, and considering all the CG action up in here, well.. why not?

          Thanks Cirkit!  Jeremy certainly was the wild card for this year, though based on the posts and threads regarding predictions and wishlists before the 2013 announcements were up, I don't think Jeremy is going to sell well as he was not mentioned once in either of them...  

          One of the horrid lorries wouldn't be a horrible idea (or all three for that matter), since they'd be easy to make but the only thing stopping me from thinking they have a fair chance is that they were only featured in one episode.  If we were to get another road character anytime soon then I'd think Trevor, Bulgy, Butch, or Elizabeth would seem more likely since they are all iconic in the show in some way.

          For Stepney I imagine he'd be a new tooling altogether, his chassis doesn't exactly match any of the other current engines chassis, which could hold him back.  

          Outside of Oliver, I'll admit Rosie sounds like a good possibility since she's been pretty high-demanded too.  I myself, never cared for Rosie as much, but I'm not going to pretend any longer she'd be a good seller due to popularity amongst the fans.  Eventually Bachmann may have to make the newer characters though as they haven't done any of the characters in the newer era, or possibly going back to introducing characters who were introduced in the season 6-7 era.  Though for that category alone I can only see Arthur, Harvey, or possibly Murdoch happening, but I wouldn't hold my breath so much on those three happening unless if they were to return in full CGI.

          I think Jeremy in the range adds a little diversity. He is a plane, after all, and to add to a HO layout or not, I'm sure some kid's parents wouldn't mind picking up Jeremy for their kid. We'll just have to wait and see how that jet plane does..

          S.C.Ruffey wasn't in more than one television series episode, but he seems to be in many different merchandising ranges regardless. If the Lorries are in any way marketable, then I think they could do alright. I would prefer Trevor, Butch, or Bulgy, though. I'm not sure how Elizabeth would fare, but it would be nice to complete the Season 6 new cast. I'd like that! :)

          Chassis yes, wheels would definitely find use in a newer character later on.. like Charlie or Rosie. She's a new series character, so younger fans would probably recognize her more than say Murdoch or Harvey. It would be nice to see the latter come in to the range, but I don't think it's really very likely that we'll see an official Harvey chuffing down the HO tracks any time soon. Ah well.

          Who knows what the future will bring? We'll just have to wait and see ;)

          Fair point on Jeremy, though we already have Harold, but I guess it does make for a good variety since Jeremy is actually a plane and Harold is a helicopter.  That being said, I'm sure that the next road character could make for a nice surprise in the near future (hoping for Trevor!).  Having Elizabeth in the range wouldn't be bad either, I wouldn't mind that myself. :)  Good point though by mentioning S.C. Ruffey.  Seems like with S.C. Ruffey, Donald, Douglas, and Duck in the range now it seems like Oliver and Toad are really standing out by not being made yet. :P  But on the subject with the lorries I can imagine Bachmann would probably just do Lorry #1 and maybe not jump right into the other two, just because many of the other ranges have done this before.  

          I can easily see Rosie and Charlie happening too, the former more than the ladder.  As for Murdoch and Harvey, well Murdoch I don't really see happening as much just due to being such a large engine.  He would easily go over 130 at retail since Spencer is currently at 120...  I think Harvey and Arthur are much more likely.  Harvey has made the right amount of appearances to be a good seller, but with his crane arm that's the only thing really holding him back.  Though like Elizabeth, I definitely wouldn't mind seeing Harvey join the range either.  

          And you are right, we will have to wait and see, I have a feeling that the future is going to be bright :)

          AND I'M BACK!
          For a moment.

          Now that I know Arry and Bert are no longer on the waiting list, and Jeremy(for some  reason) is coming along.. my wishlist hasn't really changed.

          Oliver, BoCo, Stepney and perhaps Rosie are still in place for the engines I think would be most likely(slash)/that I would want to come next, as are the 'Tree/Scrap/Bogie.. whatever that reeeally long wagon from "Henry's Forest" is called, The Red Branch Line coaches, The Breakdown Crane(or at least The Works Coach), and of course, Toad, to go with Oliver.

          The same views still apply for the road characters. I'd like to see Bulgy and Trevor make their way in to the range, or a 'Horrid Lorry'(make Lorry 1 and you could easily repaint the numbers on the plates to 2 and 3), but I would like to see Elizabeth make her way in as well. It's something about her paintwork and the character in general that appeals to me, and certainly would appeal to the younger collectors as well!

          I like the Large Scale, though I don't and probably will not be collecting them any time soon(I need the moneys), but an engine like Diesel and The Works Coach would work rather well I think as additions to that range.

          Really thinking about it, out of all the not-so-likely engines that Bachmann could make in the HO range, I'd be jumping for joy if they made Daisy(because of her low front, I find it hard to imagine where they'd put her loop coupler), The Diesel, Stanley, Molly, or even Whiff.. One can dream, though, can't they?  ;)

          So seeing as how the idea of train sets became popular in the everything Thomas thread I figured I'd post ideas behind what I think could work for new train sets.  I'm not expecting all of these to happen in the near future, but I feel like it's fun sharing the idea seeing as how train sets usually are not announced all that often. 
          What I see happening:
          Speed-activated sound Thomas set
          (http://shop.bachmanntrains.com/images/HO_Scale/58701.jpg)
          If The speed-activated sound Thomas model itself proves to be popular, I don't see why Bachmann wouldn't make a set dedicated to it.  I imagine it would just include the speed-activated sound Thomas with Annie and Clarabel with an oval of track, no more or less then that.
          Oliver freight set
          (http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130525105643/ttte/images/0/07/ToadStandsBy35.jpg)
          All right, I'm sort of stretching on this one (pun intended with the pic), just because there is no Oliver model announced yet.  However, if a model were to be announced I could see it having serious potential for it's own train set.  It would include Oliver, SC Ruffey, two other various troublesome trucks (maybe 3 and 4), Toad, and an oval of track.  With SC Ruffey, and another inevitable addition Toad being strongly associated with Oliver, Bachmann could easily get away with making their own train set for him. 
          Percy and James sets
          (http://www.totallythomas.com/thomas-the-tank-engine-train/bachmann/images/bg90069.jpg)
          (http://www.mytoybox.com/mm5/graphics/00000001/jamesfreightset.jpg)
          I mentioned this earlier in the everything Thomas thread today, but I would hope that Bachmann could either make new sets for these two, or bring back their older ones and discontinue some of their previous sets like the Salty set or Thomas freight set just because Percy and James are big name characters and I think they deserve to have their own sets again in the HO line.  Especially since the Percy set is still available in the large scale line. 
          Henry and the Flying Kipper Set
          (http://static4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100608124638/ttte/images/b/b7/TheFlyingKipper10.jpg)
          This is definitely wishful thinking on my part, but at the same time if Bachmann were to go the extra step beyond for this set I think it would be a very popular seller due to the flying kipper being popular amongst older fans.  Plus the flying kipper itself is making more appearances in the CGI series so it could be popular amongst younger fans too.  It would include Henry, a repainted mail car (BR blue to match CGI series), repainted ice cream wagon (grey), repainted ventilated van (brown), and hopefully a repainted brake van (black).  I can promise anyone that if the set were to include exclusive rolling stock, with it being simple repaints to look like vans from the flying kipper, that this will be a very popular set!

          Nice set ideas Chaz :) I would definitely be in favor a Henry and the Flying Kipper set (especially due to its recent appearances in Season 17). And a Speed-Activated sound Thomas, I think, does have a possibility, as well as other speed-activated engines (I see Percy as the next candidate)
