I have no doubt Duck will be based on his looks from season 6-7 following the Donald and Douglas models before it.  He will probably be the last character to follow this trend, IMO.

What surprises me is his price on walthers is 85 dollars which is the same price as Donald/Douglas and Diesel...   Time to rely on Model Train Stuff or Whole Sale Trains.

Well, think about it, according to Simon, Duck got a different funnel in Season 12, but all the funnels prior to that season are the same. So, regardless of which ark of seasons from 2-7, Duck will still have his Season 2 model. I'm guessing that Bachmann will go for that.

Besides his face designs, did Duck really change much from season 2 to season 7?

The hue of green on his paintwork mainly. The edges on his body look a bit smoother (like all engines did in S6+).

Alright, new mini topic: Bachmann has posted the official price of Duck, being $85.00. Now, I saw some earlier posts with people mentioning that Bachmann could just add a back coupler can reposition the eye mechanism on the Donald and Douglas chassis to use it for Duck. Do you think this could be possible?

It's definitely possible. Duck, Donald, and Douglas will all most likely use the same chassis or use Diesel's which ever is closer.

Donald/Douglas' are much closer. Diesel's chasis would look absurd. (No offence)  Wink

Diesels chassis..? What? It's too small, and the wheel base is too thin. I've heard someone say this before and it baffles me.  Huh? It'll be Donald and Douglas', no questions asked.

Here's a good question. What do you all think of Duck's retail price? ($85.00) Sounds rather steep to me, but then again, so are the prices on all the Bachmann Thomas merchandise.

With some minor tweaking, the D/D chassis looks spot on.
