1  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Re: Bachmann Thomas & Friends in 2019 on: October 12, 2018, 02:14:08 AM
I havenít commented in almost a year. Hereís what I want to see in 2019.

HO Scale:

BoCo: definitely a long shot but I just thought Iíd put him out there. BoCo is one of my personal favorites. I would love to see BoCo in HO scale because of his size and ability to pull heavy goods trains.

Flying Scotsman: a bit of a long shot but I think heíd be a good character. Yeah his tv series counterpart may not be accurate but I think heíd sell very well and Bachmann would make tons of profit off of this model.

Jamesí express coach and brake coach: highly likely we will see these come out next year if these are announced I will not be suprised.

Troublesome Truck #6: same as above very likely to be announced.

Narrow Gauge:

Sir Handle: my friend Jack goes on and on about Sir Handle not being made. I really hope we get Sir Handle just because heís a popular character and he along with Peter Sam are in high demand.


Well thatís my list hope I get a response.

So hereís what I think we should see for 2019. Given weíve been getting some re colors I thought I would add something from an earlier post.

HO Scale
Silver Spencer (with moving eyes)
Stanley (with moving eyes)
Jamesí Brake Coach
Jamesí Composite Coach
Troublesome Truck 6

Narrow Gauge
Sir Handle

Large Scale
Troublesome Truck 3

This is what I am hoping for 2019. Maybe as you guys are saying Bachmann could be planning something big. Who knows.

Hey guys I thought of something no one else has thought of for a re-color. Since the CGI switchover, all merchandising involving Spencer has repainted him in that metallic silver color. Bachmann still has Spencer in that blueish gray color from how he looked in seasons 7 and 8. I mean wouldnít it be nice to see Spencer in his current livery? Bachmann wouldnít have to change his face or anything just give him a fresh coat of metallic silver paint. This is something everyone has over looked. I personally wouldnít mind seeing a metallic silver Spencer for 2019 if Bachmann had to do another re-color. I mean itís better than grumpy diesel. Think about it. Iím sure Mattel would definitely want Bachmann to give this change for Spencer. This is an update long overdue.

Funny thing about the large scale range my parents placed a bet with me. If Edward gets announced in Large Scale I owe both my mom and grandma $10.00. If Mavis or someone else gets announced, my mom and grandma both owe me $10.00. Canít wait for tomorrow!

I donít know if you guys realize this but itís been 10 years since Emily got released. I still have the original model of her. She runs beautifully but definitely needs some lubrications

Not to get off topic but what happened to Plow Bender?
8  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Re: Thomas and Friends in DCC Sound on: February 05, 2018, 09:48:00 PM
This would really be a good idea for the 2018 or 2019 announcements. I mean they did it in Large Scale so why no HO? It would be nice to have Thomas and Percy with DCC and Sound on board in HO scale. I mean this is why I created the thread to get the word out and hopefully demand for this will get out there and Bachmann will hopefully make these. I mean if we run out of new characters we could get a DCC sound on Board Thomas and Percy. Theyíd be expensive but totally worth it.

Iím excited to see what we are gonna get for HO narrow gauge. I wanna get Rusty when he comes out but Iím really hoping for either Peter Sam or Sir Handle to be announced. Iím really excited to see what weíre gonna get. As for HO a lot of people have been speculating Ryan, Daisy or Stanley. I wanna see Hiro get released next. But hopefully we get something good. Hereís hoping for a good announcement guys.

I actually really hope we get Troublesome Truck number 6. I absolutely love the new troublesome trucks weíve been getting over the past few years. Who else here really liked the new rolling stock announced in 2016 and 2017? Iím actually leaning towards rolling stock than engine lately. Donít know why that is but Iím just speculating. If troublesome truck 6 is announced, what do you think it will be? A ventilated van, a utility wagon or a tanker? Maybe a whole new tooling. Iím just guessing. I love talking with you guys on this forum about it. I wanna hear what you all have to say about this. Comment away!

I think Diesel 10 is marketable enough but I also think they could just forget NMRA standards and make him. Diesel 10 would be a great addition to the range. I think Bachmann should make him for him being a very marketable character. His sales would go through the roof.

Alright weíre very close to the announcements. What Iím hoping for goes as follows

Diesel 10
Stephen
Daisy
Stanley

(Iím hoping at least one engine from this list is announced)
Troublesome truck 6
Water tanker

HO narrow gauge
Sir Handle
Peter Sam
Narrow Gauge coaches
Narrow Gauge open wagons

Large Scale
Edward
Bill and Ben

This is what Iím hoping for. I only expect one from each category. Let me know what you guys think.

Same here. I'd wish they would be compatible with other British stock. But if they were to do it, I think they would have those knuckle couplers which would make them compatible with O/O27 stock. I hope Lionel gives up the license to Bachmann soon. I would love to see Thomas in O scale done right.

I think if Lionel discontinues all of their products Mattel would be able to let Bachmann pick up the license to make O scale Thomas products. I think the sizes and porportions would be much more accurate compared to their Lionel counterparts. Plus unlike Large Scale, Gordon and Henry would have a much better chance at being made as well as other classic characters.

Right I'm sure Mattel could buy the license to do it. Seriously though I think Williams would make great Thomas items in O scale
