My reaction to Duck's delay.

Remember these are just rumours, there is no delay set in stone

Well, not really considered a delay but as before we heard he may come in between October and December and so now we got much later to wait for. Then again, good things come after long waits. Undecided

I agree. Jan. 30th is most likely only an estimate, since Bachmann hasn't announced an official release date. I still believe that Duck will be released around October or November.
But if that release date was written in stone we should have had a picture by now.  Undecided

Not necessarily. TJ219 said that Edward's picture was released only 3 weeks or so before the actual product. The same thing could happen to Duck's model. The release date of a product is not determined by the release date of its promo picture.

Exactly, see this is how rumors start yet. Duck is NOT delayed as far as we know, I didn't expect a picture before October anyway.

not really a rumor. Tower hobbies says he is expected late Jan. Wholesale Trains says he's expected Jan 30.

But those are only estimates, and most likely rough ones, at that. IMO, those dates should be taken with a grain of salt.

They had Toby, when he was coming out, for July at one time didn't happen, after that the dates have always been January. They are never right and ALWAYS an over estimate now.

Wow that's really surprising, I wonder why they would do that or if BACHMANN would like it.

Its to attract the public(Americans obvoiusly not the UK market) so they can take in pre-order money

I mean yes a picture does attract more potential buyers but that's not really what I meant. I mean why not do what they always did before and use an illustration of the engine? I think it must have been a mistake because I doubt HORNBY would like their products image being used to sell BACHMANN products nor do I think BACHMANN would like being falsely represented by what is sure to become an inferior model, one they did not make. It is copyright infringement and I really believe it is an error on their part.

They probably went to Google or the Thomas Wikia and got the first image of a Duck model train. Not a big deal to me, but still humorous. Someone should probably send them an email though.
