I don't really mind the CGI. I think that Nitrogen did a great job at the animation. I'm looking forward to the new animation, but there will be nothing like the good ol' models.  Wink

That was really impressive! My favorite part was when the track caves in during the "Down the Mine" flashback, as compared to the original episode in which the hole just spontaneously appears. Tongue

I love that they tried to keep the camera angles the same. Even tha DANGER sign was exactly how it used to be. Great work.

That was awsome. If the whole episode was to be remade in CGI, it would be interesting to see how the classic scenery/sights are portrayed in in CGI, like the Vicker's orchard and the bridge where Bulgy got stuck.

That would be extremely interesting, I would watch. The only thing I didn't like about one flashback was at the mine the trucks were all different colors :/

Well, those are some scenes you wouldn't expect to see in CGI Thomas! It's interesting to see how Nitrogen Studios reinvented each scene, I enjoyed each one & I hope to see more like them in the future series.

I'm equally suprised about even seeing them at all--the original stories were filmed some 20+ years ago, I don't think many Thomas fans of the new generation would have heard of them before--all the more reason to include them, I suppose!

i didn't like that part of the scene either. I never really liked the whole idea of different color trucks (i.e. red, blue, orange/brown) but recently i learned, after looking for some more trucks on Hattons, that there were different color trucks on different railways, only they were privet owner wagons. If they could introduce more privet owner wagons, like S.C.Ruffey, into the series to make it more realistic.

I heard rumors that said that they will announce Diesel 10 next year. Are you sure that Diesel 10 will sell very well?

Sorry, the rumors are wrong, Diesel 10 is not being made by Bachmann anytime soon. Truthfully there is no reason for him to be built by Bachmann.

Pinchy would have to be manually operated, and it would be difficult to move it like on the show.

realistically, I can see Oliver being made for the range, but in a way I don't feel like the next release will be him. I feel that Bachmann might throw us a curveball here. One of the engines I think has a very good chance of being made is Whiff. He's a very popular TV character, small in size, and no one's expecting him XD

I know that the rumours are false (I don't think Bachmann are the type to dip their feet in spreading rumours), but I must say that I don't quite agree with that statement.

Diesel 10 is a lot like Diesel, Arry & Bert in that he is a villain of the show (and arguably a more interesting one at that) and will appeal to children who want to recreate their favourite "good guy vs. bad guy" scenes (a lot like action figures). There are also several things about him that will definitely earn a "thumbs-up" from kids, like the fact that he is larger than most engines, or that he has a claw (something which no other engine has). I have a hunch that kids will be more excited to see Diesel 10 rolling by on their train sets than some of the more minor, one-off characters.

If Bachmann can find some way of creating a safe and operable "pinchy" (which seems to be the only complication at this point), then I can't see why they shouldn't make him. There is definitely potential in making Diesel 10

Of course I don't decide what Bachmann makes...as far as I'm concerned, what they make for 2013 is anyone's guess!  Wink

If Bachmann were to make 'Arry, Bert, and Diesel 10, they WILL have CGI faces. I liked the model faces a lot better. But if CGI is what modern kids are into, it's their choice.

Seeing that Diesel was one of the first characters to have a CGI face. Maybe they may/may not have these CGI faces (at least for the characters that appeared in the CGI series as of now and as of last year's line up, Diesel).

Idk, I thought the CGI implements were supposed to be on the Large Scale models only, but hey, I guess I was wrong on that! -_-'
