I donít have any actual predictions but I do have one request:

Please Bachmann give us an HO scale Explosives Van.

That is all.

Best: I'd have to say either Edward, the flat car with paint drums, or the mail car.
Worst: Hands down, Paxton.

Even though I already own one, I would go crazy if Bachmann brought back the tar tankers. Also I feel like Salty would sell a lot better if he was reintroduced, because I've seen quite a few people say they want a Salty but can't find one.

Quick question. Does anyone know when James for HO scale will be restocked?

Honestly, it doesn't matter to me who gets made first. I just hope we don't get Sidney.

While I do think Stepney would be the best option as the next character with a new mold, I do think that Ryan should be considered for production after Stepney. First of all, Ryan is a newer character which means he would be more recognizable to younger fans. Speaking of recognizability, if Ryan was produced, his purple livery would certainly stand out among other characters, as there are currently no purple engines in the range. Finally, with Daisy getting announced, Ryan would be a great choice to follow up on, because as we all know, they share a branch line.

While I do think Stepney is the absolute go-to next new character, I thought it would be good to mention why Ryan would be good to come after Stepney.

Do you by any chance know when James will be back in stock?
12  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Re: Bachmann Thomas & Friends in 2019 on: February 27, 2019, 03:06:10 PM
Has anyone ever thought of Bachmann making Murdoch? Itís pretty realistic because theyíve made his real life loco in branch line, itís just a thought.

Iím not gonna lie. Iíd absolutely love a Bachmann Murdoch. But  he hasnít appeared in the show for over 10 years. However, the Hornby Murdoch is worth a lot of money and for some reason, people are paying ludicrous amounts for it. Iíd say itís very unlikely.
13  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Re: Flat Car With Paint Drums on: February 27, 2019, 03:03:28 PM
This chat went dead again so I wanted to ask another question. Since a brand new Flat Car with logs is getting released, does this mean the Paint Drum variant wonít be as valuable as the new one? Like if I put one on eBay, would it get more than say $200, with bachmann collectorsí knowledge of a new cheaper version?
14  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Re: 2019 Official Announcements on: February 21, 2019, 08:31:15 PM
I wouldnít say that we will NEVER get another new mold in HO. Maybe since next year is the 75th anniversary, we'll get a nice surprise. (Even though Iím only expecting Original Thomas.) I actually predicted that ĎArry and Bert would get discontinued this year. Not surprised really. Iím really excited for the new Flat Car and open wagons. We havenít gotten an open wagon since Troublesome Truck #4 (FIVE YEARS AGO).

I really hope we do eventually get the Explosives Van in HO Scale. I'd also like to see the Toffee and Chocolate Syrup Tankers get made in HO Scale someday. The HO Explosives Van is especially long overdue.

Honestly. WHY havenít we gotten an explosives van in HO? Itís just the ice cream van repainted! And we all know how much Bachmann loves their repaints, so they wouldnít even have to make a new mold! (And if they do make the explosives van in HO, I really hope they donít use the Ventilated Van Model, as theyíve already used it for the GWR and Vegetable Vans.)
