Title: Bachmann Edward
Post by: metal4life on April 13, 2007, 05:26:03 PM
Dear Bach-Man,
Do you think Edward could have his original season 1 face, like Toby?
That'd be awesome if he does.  ???


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Chazoroni on April 13, 2007, 11:17:06 PM
I hope he does, he will be released in a month so this means that we will find out soon. ;)

Post by: Rail-Runner192 on April 17, 2007, 04:32:28 PM
I wonder how much $$ he will be ??? ??? ???

Post by: Chazoroni on April 17, 2007, 07:53:32 PM
Maybe around 40 dollars I am guessing.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Chazoroni on April 17, 2007, 11:37:45 PM
I am guessing Edward would most likely be a few dollars off because of the amount of driving wheels he has. 


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Chazoroni on April 17, 2007, 11:52:08 PM
Yeah also from what I am guessing, I don't think Edward will be out in the Spring and same with Mavis.  Mavis will be easier to be made because her prototype has already been made in the UK, while Edward's hasn't.  One reason I think personally why Bachmann is making Edward is because of demands from lots of people besides members, so making the model in general will be very hard, but once it is made it will be worth it. ;)


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: metal4life on April 21, 2007, 03:45:46 PM
Yeah, he's been priced from $40-$45.
I just can't wait 'till he's released  :P


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Henryblue on April 23, 2007, 01:21:46 PM
well James retailed at $35 when he was released, so Edward would be about the same.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Rail-Runner192 on April 25, 2007, 05:21:21 PM
Yeah I just hope that hes not the same size as james.
Anyway hows the movie coming Henry Blue?

Title: Re: Bachmann Edward

$64!? Spencer cost less than that! I think you're wayy off  :o

Post by: PerfectPercy on September 16, 2007, 03:25:21 PM
I think Edward won't be that hard just put 1 less drive wheel on the James model and one more bogie in front then do a little body editing adn paint and your done. Wait, don't forget the face.

Post by: SilverSpencer on October 18, 2007, 11:56:44 AM
Dear Bachman

Sorry to be a bother, but i was wondering if you have heard anyting about the new Edward and Mavis models that you have listed on the site.
Reason i ask is because most of the model rail websites say that they will be released by the years end, so i thought i would ask if you might know anything on that.

cheers

Gordon


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Michael on October 18, 2007, 12:28:21 PM
Well, I bought the Walther's reference catalouge and it says this:
Edward: $64
Mavis:  $43
All NEW Wagons: $17


Usually, Bachmann takes the engine's happiest and uses it.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Jordan Shepis on January 10, 2008, 05:38:54 PM
Edward & Mavis didn't come out yet ???

It might come out Dec 2008 :o
d'oh.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: The Chaz Storm on January 10, 2008, 07:38:56 PM
It might but from what I heard, Edward and Mavis might come out at around February or March, at least that's what the Bachmann company told me.  Only time will tell at this point...

I am getting my lawn mowing business going strong right now.  I took and was out mowing my neighbors lawn over the weekend and it was so miserable with all the snow and wet grass clogging up the mower.  In the end though I got $20.00 out of it so I think if I keep doing well I will have enough to get Edward and Mavis when they come out.  First though I need to get my Emily paid for that’s been sitting up at my L.H.C. for 2 months.

I f edward is not hard to build then why the F*CK is taking the damn company to finsih edward. >:(


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Guilford Guy on February 13, 2008, 09:25:20 PM
Well with that attitude why should anyone answer you? It takes time to make molds and mass produce models. Bachmann doesn't use any commercial parts. You can easily kitbash a model from another model, but I doubt you built a model from the ground up in a week. Not to mention the designers at bachmann have a lot of other projects. IMO, you need to work on your people skills.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: BaltoOhioRRfan on February 13, 2008, 09:34:50 PM
I bet Edward comes out in October.

Railwaypark if you're going to speak like that then you might as well leave the forums or apologize for the way you are acting, mind you like a 3 year old. HAVE PATIENCE!! If you don't spend all your time getting worked up like this then Edward WILL take forever to get here. If you're going to chat on these forums with us you had better watch your mouth. Corrie, you are excused :P.

Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Shawmut Line Operation on February 13, 2008, 10:41:47 PM
Well you saw how good Emily turned out.  The way I see it the longer the wait the more work the Bach-Man is probably putting into the product. ;)


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: metal4life on February 13, 2008, 10:42:06 PM
If you think about it, March isn't far away at all. Only about 2-3 more weeks. Heh, maybe for Valentines Day the Bach-Man could give us a sneek peek of Edward. Lol, that'd be really awesome. Don't you guys think?

Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on February 16, 2008, 09:17:51 PM
I hope they come out before the end of March.If not,that will cause confusion
and delay in my receiving Edward,because my family's moving at the end of
March.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Duckfan8 on February 18, 2008, 07:21:42 PM
Hopefully, Edward can come out in Spring/Summer. If not, possibly in time for X-mas?


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: The Chaz Storm on February 18, 2008, 08:32:06 PM
Well everyone is hoping for March and so am I, and it is indeed possible.  I tried calling the Bachmann company today but no one picked up (Mainly because it was President's day :P )  I'll try calling tomorrow and maybe we will find out what is going on with Edward and Mavis, maybe the models are done and completed. ;)

Now I don't think we will expect much in March...:(  As much as I would like to see Edward and Mavis in March maybe it might not happen until November...

The new rolling stock probably won't come until November at the earliest.

I just hope Salty doesn't come out until November 2009. :(


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Jock The New Engine on February 20, 2008, 01:26:06 PM
Yeah, it should actually be pretty easy to make Salty, just some modifications to Thomas' chassis, new body, eye gears, face, and thats it!  It shouldn't take until November 2009 just to make Salty! :( :(

Thank you for stating the obvious RailwayPark, I really needed to know that....

But yeah Bommerfan does have a good point so hopefully Salty will be done before 2009, that would be awesome. :)

I sincerly hope that you don't do this on the MTF forum, cause we do NOT want this sort of behaviour over something as petty as this, this really was not called for at all, if you have to wait till November or even 2009 to get Edward and Mavis, then just be glad that they are actually being made and stop acting like a child aged between 1 and 2 yrs....


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: The Chaz Storm on February 22, 2008, 01:38:42 PM
If he isn't bothering to listen to us then I think it is best we let the Bach-man take care of him...

In the mean time I REALLY think we should get back on topic.

Anyways have you guys found any websites besides Walther's that takes preorders on the new items that were recently announced?

Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Edward2P on February 23, 2008, 09:16:26 PM
Hi, everybody.  It's been a while since I've been here.  I had to make a new profile.  So, is Edward going to look the same as when I watched the show 17 years ago?  Will he have the old face or the new, not as friendly face?  And why are they waiting till now to make Edward?  He was the very first engine to come out of the Rev. W. Awdry's head.  He was the first engine to be thought up for the Reverend's sick son.  Have they released pics of Edward yet?


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: The Chaz Storm on February 23, 2008, 09:45:11 PM
First off welcome to the forum, or in this case welcome back ;)

The question of why they didn't make Edward then and are working on him now I can't answer for you.  It could be because of the popularity of the engines, but I am not 100% sure.

Also there are no pictures of Edward yet, therefore we don't know how the face will turn out.  I would like to see the original Season 1 Edward face on the model too. ;)


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Edward2P on February 23, 2008, 09:59:08 PM
I remember watching Thomas when I was little and my absolute favorite engine was Edward.  There was just something about him that was so wonderful.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: PRRThomas11 on February 23, 2008, 11:25:28 PM
Yeah, Bachmann makes their trains according to their popularity. Bachmann makes their trains for little kids, whom are the main audience of people who watch Thomas.(Not that they would be running them) Spencer, who is a newer engine, was only in three episodes I think and they made him because he looks cool. Edward is barely in the show anymore and since little kids don't know him as well so is not as popular.
Thus, by making the more popular trains for the widest audience, Bachmann make money.

Its elementary my dear Watson.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Edward2P on February 23, 2008, 11:30:22 PM
Ok, Thomas and Percy I can understand but James?  (Sorry to all of James's truest fans out there)  The only episodes he hasn't been totally mean in are the first episode where he meets some very friendly cows up close and personal, and when he helps Edward.  Other than that, he is completely rude, obnoxious, self-centered, and just over all deserving of a derailment.  And I am going to send an email to HIT entertainment and anyone else that produces Thomas The Tank Engine And Friends, and tell them that they need Edward.  He was the first, he was the original.  He was always the one who taught us to be nice, and taught us friendship, and the ability to rely on someone, and he was almost always happy, and never mean.  Now you can't see one episode where he isn't rude, or mean.  They are going to kill off Edward and he is the reason Thomas the Tank Engine exists.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: PRRThomas11 on February 23, 2008, 11:50:26 PM
The makers of Thomas and Freinds try to make Thomas, Percy, and James the three most popular characters. (Emily too, sometimes.) I think it has to do with their contrasting personalities and characteristics.

Except for the part with them being trains with faces of course.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Guilford Guy on February 24, 2008, 12:03:54 AM
They are trying to hold onto viewers. HIT has better things to do than to care about who came first, and who came second. If that were true companies would still be making models of steam locomotives. They wouldn't have even got to EMD's 1930's releases... Its a popularity contest. If they are going to kill off a character then so be it. It doesn't matter what the emotions of a model is. Its only a model. And with all those derailments they are in dire need of some track repair. They should get some new crews too, who are more experienced, and locomotives without a mind of their own... "Mr Hat" is the worst railway manager known to man...


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: LastQ6 on February 25, 2008, 05:39:04 PM

Post by: metal4life on February 25, 2008, 06:07:38 PM
Well Edward2P, looks like we've got something in common :P. As far as we know, I think the model comes out somewhere between March-November.
At least, I hope he does. If they give Edward his original season 1 face, I'd just die.

Ok, Thomas and Percy I can understand but James?  (Sorry to all of James's truest fans out there)  The only episodes he hasn't been totally mean in are the first episode where he meets some very friendly cows up close and personal, and when he helps Edward.  Other than that, he is completely rude, obnoxious, self-centered, and just over all deserving of a derailment.  And I am going to send an email to HIT entertainment and anyone else that produces Thomas The Tank Engine And Friends, and tell them that they need Edward.  He was the first, he was the original.  He was always the one who taught us to be nice, and taught us friendship, and the ability to rely on someone, and he was almost always happy, and never mean.  Now you can't see one episode where he isn't rude, or mean.  They are going to kill off Edward and he is the reason Thomas the Tank Engine exists.

........................


Anyways, I agree about Edward needing to come out soon! But James is one of my favorites, along with Edward, don't diss him like that. :P ;)

Railwaypark, I think it is pretty much decided that most people want Edward's season 1 face.  Don't forget, Edward is shorter in length than James, and his driving wheels are bigger so the wheel archs would have to be bigger, his cab shape is different too.  Edward is basically a shortened class 2P, thats why Hornby just used the 2P to make Edward.  Although, I wish they hadn't been so cheap when making Emily.  They used Lord Of The Isles which is a different class loco.  Emily is a Stirling 8ft Single class.  They have the molds for the Stirling 8ft Single.  Hornby owns Airfix which owns the original kitmaster molds for the Stirling Single model kit.

They already have an idea. They've had blueprints for the pas few months and are now working on the molds. I doubt they will pay any attention to some "half-ass" advice from a 12 year old...

I think we better get back on topic if anything. :P

But anyways RailwayPark, the Bach-man knows what he is doing.  I mean come on, he isn't stupid or anything like that and I am sure he knows what Edward looks like.  It's not like he is going to say he'll make Edward and then make Molly. lol


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: rains train on February 25, 2008, 09:37:24 PM
Ya, he isn't gunna make Edward with like a diesel body, or a boy body or anything like that. Don't worry, its like Chaz said, he be knowing, what he be doing! ;)

I think from this point on it's better we just ignore railwaypark....That is, if he can't actually provide some constructive or informative thoughts.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: rains train on February 26, 2008, 06:30:59 PM
Rail-who? LOL

Anyways, I keep hearing March and November...I'm going to trust November 'cuz the Bach-Man said it.

I'll just have to settle for James once he arrives. ;) James and Edward are my favorites after all....Although I think I already said that...Oh well.

Don't worry mate, patience is all it takes. I'm sure when everything's all said and done, we're gonna end up with two fantastic models of Edward and Mavis.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: rains train on February 26, 2008, 08:42:07 PM
I sure hope so! ;) Although Mavis will be one of the last ones I get..Gettin all the originals first. Thomas, Percy, Henry, Gordon, James, Edward...

Then Tobi and Mavis...

After that Spencer and Emily, and whoever else is out by then. :P

Tons of coaches will fit in there somewere, LOL.

I agree, nothing ever beats the original characters.  It's another great reason for us to be excited for Edward and Mavis.  Personally I like the idea of Salty coming out because he is one of my favorite S6-beyond engines, in fact one of my favorite diesels.  ;)

I remember when I was little it was always:
Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, THOMAS! I used to watch Thomas every second of every day, I still do when I have the chance, and find new videos on youtube! ;D

I remember one specific thing though: Nothing in my opinion ever beat the originals.

I can`t wait to get Edward. I still hope he has his S1 style.

Due to the illustration of edward that's in this site I believe edward is gonna be in his S6 style ;)


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: The Chaz Storm on March 02, 2008, 01:35:16 PM
As we said earlier, we aren't sure how the face will turn out mainly because we haven't seen any pictures of Edward yet.  So we shouldn't jump to conclusions at this point. 


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Michael on March 02, 2008, 02:02:51 PM
Chaz is right, look at Henry's "drawing" picture.  They are just pictures of the engine. 


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: metal4life on March 02, 2008, 09:27:27 PM
They didn't make Toby with his S6 style, thankfully. I just pray that they'll do the same for Edward.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: The Chaz Storm on March 02, 2008, 09:39:01 PM
Toby was amazing, it looked like his S1 model, so chances are that could happen with Edward, but as I said earlier we will find out soon on how Edward's face will turn out! :)


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Diesel #261 on March 03, 2008, 12:11:13 AM
I just had a question.  Since Toby's hooks (The Black Ones) are different from the normal ones on the other engines, are they able to be replaced if they get brocken or damaged? ???


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: ZeldaTheSwordsman on March 04, 2008, 01:33:24 AM
Well,probably.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward

Yes you can order new ones.  Check Walthers.com or towerhobbies.com

Hi I'm new. Does anybody know why Edward is taking so long? It seems like everytime it gets close to when he is supposed to come out they delay him again. Are they having trouble making him?

Well, I dunno the answer to your other question (and I don't mind that it takes so long, they produce excellent models!), but...

Welcome to the Forums!  ;)

Edward has only been just announced, and he's still in production. Currently Bachmann has their eyes set on November 2008, but it could change at any moment. The reason Edward has been pushed back is because Bachmann take considerable amounts of time and effort when it comes to their models. Would you want a crappy model of Edward by June or a superb model in November?

Post by: Rickenbacker 325 on March 07, 2008, 07:12:48 PM
It's just like Gordon, Henry, and Emily got held back and look at there models. Just  the other day my friend (Thomas lover) came over and he thought they were the real models.  :D  It does not matter how long we have to wait, as long as we just get a decent model. ;) ;)

Edward & mavis have benn held back three times & this year we get them with salty. :D

Do you know if Bachmann is going to make Duck, Oliver, Bill & Ben, or Donald & Douglas?  After I get Edward I want to know what other original engines.


Title: Re: Bachmann Edward
Post by: Michael on March 10, 2008, 12:59:46 PM
We do not know but we will have to wait another year to see, or just see what this year brings for us besides Mavis, Salty and our long awaited Edward.  Bachmann did say there might be more, but we will have to wait and see what the year brings us.
