They need to redo Thomas, Percy James, Gordon and Henrys toolings before even considering Spencer.

While Thomas, Percy and James need better faces, what's wrong with Henry & Gordon?

I thought about this recolor that may or may not work.



Or perhaps a simple repaint of their black wheels to red will work better.

Did the Thomas Team ever explain why they changed Bill & Ben's wheel to red?

I know a black James would be cool to have, but am I the only person who thinks a repaint of the same character two years in a row a bit overkill?

The thing is, is that we should have gotten the black James instead of the Busy Bee James in the first place, so it’s understandable why there’s more of a push for a black James than ever.  Especially with the LBSC Thomas coming out.

If anything, Busy Bee James was “overkill”.

I do agree we should have gotten black James first, I just don't really want two James repaints in a row, I'd be ok with it being a couple of years apart, but would could have seen a different engine repainted, such as Scrapped Oliver & Toad.

Maybe in about three years, I would be ok with that repaint.


Yellow Rheneas would be pretty cool, if they are willing to do repaints of the Narrow Gauge Engines.

Sorry to go off topic, does anyone know what date is Toy Fair?

Not sure if anyone noticed but Walthers has daisy to be expected 1/31/20, the flatcars due 1/31/20 and the tanker due 1/31/20. Also they have the prices for the N scale items, $125 for Thomas, $125 for Percy, $26 each troublesome truck and $29 for Annie and $29 for clarabel. I’m sooooo excited for them to come out along with Peter Sam.

I highly doubt they will be coming that soon.

I saw that Chaz posted a picture of Bachmann replying to a tweet about the original Thomas saying, “I don’t want to give too much away but you may be seeing some green in our 2020 catalog when it comes out 😉”.

I think they are hinting at Daisy and Peter Sam if I'm honest, but who knows I could be wrong haha?

So everyone keeps saying that Toby got an updated paint job, what’s different?

Apparently he is a darker brown.

I think they are repainting a model every year?
2017: James
2018: Thomas
2019: Toby

I didn't realize that Toby got a paint job.

I would like to see more non rail characters, be great to see Trevor and Butch on a layout or if they release Sir Handel then George would go perfect with him.

"Although it's an unpainted sample, we thought you'd enjoy a sneak peek at a new addition coming to the Thomas & Friends™ lineup at Bachmann. Troublesome Truck #1 (77096) and Troublesome Truck #2 (77097) will look great on your N Scale layout. Stay tuned!"

I could see the eyelashes being molded onto the face.

I wonder how many people will use Daisy's face for BoCo customs?

I do feel Stepney is very unlikely, but I would like to proven wrong.

I would love to see Hector and Bradford introduced into the series.

What would be cool if they sold the flatbed on it's own.

Then sell crates, poles, logs, paint pots, planks, hay bales separately, that way we can change the loads.
