Guys I don't think we should trust rumors. Simon refused to actually give out a source to the actual info he received. It may be a hoax, it may not be, but we can never know for sure until Toy Fair.

Wouldn't it be nice to get an apology on here.  Roll Eyes

I don't do "hoaxes" or "rumours". I deal in facts.

Nah, not really. Its usual not to take the first source, especially in this case, the only source and automatically trust it. Take it with a sand of salt. In all honesty, I think its quite arrogant expecting an apology.

I do find it necessary to apologize here, as I was being very harsh to a trusted source. However, I acted the way I did because I had fallen for this before in the Lego community. A very well known member had posted information about a rumored set for January 2011 back in June 2010, and said it was official. However, once September came along, and the sets were officially announced, the set this guy had mentioned was not listed, unfortunate, because people were looking forward to that set, including myself. I practically stayed out of the war after that, but I did learn a valuable lesson. You can't always trust early announcements, no matter how reliable. However, you proved me wrong, Simon.

As you are right, so apologizes should not be dealt if they are for an false cause. Just saying, you were right with first not trusting. Sorry, SAC, but its just life. We cant take the one and only for fact if we've never known each other personally. I would trust because of your track record, but it wasn't worth the  hype vs. the risk of it not actually happening.

Ok it's over lets forget about it Duck is here let's move on form the (now proven) credibility of the sources, and just for future reference it's a GRAIN of salt not "a SAND of salt"  Roll Eyes

Um... S.A.C.... Duck didn't appear in Season 1 and the model is exactly the same in Season 12, just a smaller face, that's all. Undecided

Actually, the funnel did indeed change shape, but it's very hard to notice.. This is something I never noticed until Simon pointed it out. Good find! I also prefer the stove pipe shape.

Quite right, my apologies. My only defense is that I've been running on empty since January with my current job and the travelling involved.

Nah, not really. Its usual not to take the first source, especially in this case, the only source and automatically trust it. Take it with a sand of salt. In all honesty, I think its quite arrogant expecting an apology.

Arrogant, as opposed to your, ah, "joke" in another thread?  Wink

Strange this, but I tend to take sources who do their research and a proven track record more seriously and trust them more than a random individual on a forum.

The Bachmann Duck is more than likely to be exceptional, based on the last few years. My preference is for the stovepipe but it's not a deal breaker. I'm not sure when exactly the change occured, but the latter is more realistic to the 57XX than the former - and I prefer the former as its part of that overall look.

Are those sort of comments really necessary? Someone's feelings are bound to get hurt.

Alright back to Duck. What era do you think his appearance will be based on? S2-5? S6-7? or S12?
