Considering he was first seen back in February, they must be trying to get a HUGE supply of models, possibly in time for Christmas. Let's hope he does make it.

Also, fingers crossed Peter Sam gets announced for 2018. Rusty might be revealed at that time as well (mid February).

I think Bachmann is trying to get a large supply built up in time for Christmas in efforts to avoid the shortage of stock that they had with Skarloey.  Personally I don't think even that's going to work, considering the narrow gauge range literally flies off the shelves.  Bottom line here is, don't hesitate to get the model when it becomes available.

As for Rusty, I'm saying mid February as well.  I did have hopes of seeing him in time for Christmas, but we haven't even got as much as an update from Bachmann about him, which leads me to believe we probably won't hear anything on the model till next year.  Possibly get an update on the model along with the 2018 announcements.

The picture is right here: http://shop.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=popup_image&pID=5898

He looks as good as Skarloey in my opinion, I wonder how well he'll run. Only one way to find out I guess.

With all these people building their own replica Thomas characters, soon we may have no choice but to have 4K Thomas and Friends remakes.

Would be nice to know if this will be out in time for Christmas.  Would have been a lot happier seeing an update on this than the James model.

I'm sure it will be before Christmas, Bachmann would never miss out on an opportunity to sell a model in such high demand around Christmastime when every consumer has their wallet out ready to spend...and I'm sure they didn't consciously choose to announce James over updating us about Rheneas. Patience is a virtue.

Except that's not what I said in my post... -_-

I said that I would have been a lot happier over hearing about Rheneas, and something tells me I'm not the only one who thinks this way.

All I meant was, they don't have control about which products are updated when. Therefore, what you or anyone might've preferred to see first wasn't what they could've shown.

I'm quite happy James is being updated. Might lead the way for more in the future.

I'm having a hard time for my excitement when the narrow gauge engines to come out and next year's releases.

There's a slight humor in Rheneas popping up on websites and shipping out before Bachmann themselves announce his release.

Considering family has been on me asking what in the hey I want for Christmas, I think I'll be putting Rheneas on my list along with the squirty gun and the YoYo. Cheesy  In all seriousness though, I'm glad to see Rheneas shipping before Christmas.  Hopefully a new supply of Skarloey models is going to be shipping soon as well.
