My bet is they'll announce it at around 5:30PM, seeing Bachmann announced the range round that time last year and the year before.

They announced the 2017 range a day before the New York Toy Fair and since the Toy Fair 2018 starts this Saturday (17th), most likely they'll announce the 2018 range this Friday (16th).

Looks absolutely stunning! I can also see that the lining on his tender has been corrected also. Smashing work!

Thomas and Friends models are produced to the manufacturing specifications of the Licensor. Even if Bachmann wanted to change things on the models they could not due to the legal ramifications that come with a licensed product. That being said, if you would like to change your own models with some hobby paint that is totally acceptable.

Would this also affect the rumoured 'Re-designed James' that's been mentioned since 2014?

Here's my predictions:

HO:

Engines:
* Re-designed Percy
* Winston
* Stanley
* Ryan
* Sidney

They made two new toolings in 2005 (Henry and Gordon), as well as in 2010 (Donald/Douglas and Bill/Ben), so I'm sure they could be able to make two new toolings for 2018 and Stanley and Ryan are very popular steam engines. I'm surprised Bachmann didn't announce Sidney with Paxton this year, seeing they both use the same tooling. Hopefully there's a chance for Sidney in 2018. With Winston released in 'G' Scale, surely they should build and release him in the 'HO' range, as well.

Rolling Stock:
* Re-designed Tidmouth Milk Tanker
* Re-designed Sodor Fuel Tanker
* Re-designed Gordon's Express Coaches (CGI style)
* Re-designed James' Express Coaches (CGI style)
* Rocky the Rail Crane
* Judy and Jerome the Breakdown Train
* Sodor Works Unit Coach (In both 'Green' and 'Brown' liveries)
* Troublesome Truck #6
* Troublesome Truck #7

Non-Rail:
* Trevor
* Jack

Trevor is a very popular non-rail character and since his return in Series 20, I'm sure he'd be a great seller for Bachmann. Like the Skarloey Railway, perhaps Bachmann could consider about releasing Jack and the Pack, staring with Jack and then every year, they could release the members one-by-one, e.g. Alfie (2019), Oliver (2020), Max & Monty (2021) etc.

Resin Buildings:
* Farquhar Station
* Callan Castle

Narrow Gauge:
* Sir Handel
* Peter Sam
* Skarloey Railway Coaches
* Skarloey Railway Brake Van

Large Scale:
* Edward
* Mavis
* Henrietta

I think they will come out in number order. I think personally each year they will be released like this:

2016 - Rheneas
2017 - Sir Handel
2018 - Peter Sam
2019 - Rusty
2020 - Duncan

Maybe they'll release about 3 Narrow Gauge Engines per year:

2016 - Rheneas, Sir Handel & Peter Sam
2017 - Rusty, Duncan & Duke
2018 - Victor, Millie & Luke
2019 - Mighty Mac, Freddie & Proteus
