Oh I understand that.  Grin but not much longer and think of what we are getting, the suspense, in a weird way, kind of makes it more fun, makes it feel like more of an accomplishment.

To see our loved Ducky in Bachmann and not the old Hornby model yes it's worth the wait. I remember one of the marketing staff telling me that pictures of the product are release when the publisher(HIT) gives the permission, which begs the question why is HIT putting it off for so long? Shows the hate.

Even before HIT took over in S6 & 7 which where made by gullan Duck was hardly used few roles in S6 and completly mute in S7 even in S5 he was mute. I demand answers, HIT still allow him to be made in mechandise like Trackmaster and Take n Play, if he didn't make profit he probably would be ordered to be discontinued that is if HIT give those orders, Hornby has sadly discontinued their Duck and is very hard to find now but that may be due to him being a old model and the triang mold may either be lost or itself been discontinued. But Thomas wiki states staff at HIT have feelings for him as we do.

How can anymore say no to that face?.

even in S5 he was mute.

Duck wasn't mute in Season 5. While he mostly made cameos, he had speaking roles in "Cranky Bugs", "Double Teething Troubles", and "Bye George".

Duck actually played some big roles in some season 6 episodes such as Scaredy Engines and Twin Trouble.  Plus he played some other big roles despite having one line and/or not speaking such as Edward the Really Useful Engine and his one-liner and role in Toby Had a Little Lamb, if you really want to get technical.  Despite not having any episodes to himself, he was a pretty regular character throughout season 5 and 6.  He definetely got short-changed in season 7, but this could make up for Oliver doing next to nothing in season 6 since he got his own episode and played a huge role in Emily's New Coaches but that's just my own personal guess. Tongue

I personally can't understand why it would take Bachmann so long to make Duck though.  It took Bachmann less than a year to put together Bill, Ben, and even Diesel.  All three have more complicated designs when compared Duck's design.  Plus Duck has the exact same chassis as Donald and Douglas so that especially holds my question as to why it's taking so long for the model to be out this year, let alone a photo.

Regardless, I'm sure the model will be worth the wait.

He got short changed in Season 7 because it was the first season that HiT over saw production.

Perhaps he will surface on the 12th since Bachmann have their last event for the year it's possible. Just a Wild wild guess.

Yea it's not that type of event. Again remember, a picture of Edward did not surface until almost the second week of December.

If it is released then, it would make a nifty Christmas present!
