There is no confirmation on what the next large scale engine is gonna come out for next year.  They will announce who it will be February 2011 at the toy fair though.  

I'm placing bets on Toby for next year myself...

Yea, RBMN, but those are for avid train collectors. I highly doubt a parent is going to pay even over 500 dollars just for a large scale train in the Thomas line. I just see large scale as a waste of money (no offense to anyone), because they're so much money and there are other scales with a wider variety to choose from. But, that's just my opinion.

theirs a reason that ho scale is so popular, they're cheap but big enough to see what your doing.

G scale catches my eye a lot more but for $1500, its an expensive hobby. for $300, its not a bad price. (these are just guesses to what the average layout would cost,)
