Honestly, I don't see any chance of Bachmann making Lady at all.  She has only appeared twice (one of them being rather brief) and probably won't appear anytime soon after that.  Plus, she isn't really to popular nowadays.  Characters like Oliver, Rosie, Hiro, or even Paxton are far more likely to appear in next year's lineup as they have not only proven to be popular enough characters, but also very memorable. 

Plus Lady's overall design would be rather hard to put together in terms of new tooling, which certainly doesn't help her become a more likely canidate to be made in the near future.

I have recently figured out how to make lady it is just going to be tight because of money problems I don't even have a basic 4x8 layout going yet but i figured it out and now that I know it is unclear on how they can't make her.

I think the chances for Lady to return to the show ever are minuscule at best, much less being made in HO.
She hasn't appeared in a special in years, she's barely 10 lines in all of her roles combined, and I don't think younger children- which the range is aimed at- would recognize her as easily as other characters like Emily, Spencer, Duck, or even the Iron Twins that will be released later this year.

If Bachmann did make their own Lady, I imagine they would do a superb job, but for now if you really want a Lady all your own, the best way would be to 'bash' one together. There are a few people out there who have made their own Ladys before, they've got posts instructing how to do the job and pictures to guide you along during the process. And if you don't want to make one completely on your own, you can always repaint some OO scale model train and add a face to it, simple as that, so at least you can have a representation of the character running around on your layout.

I know everyone has some characters, rolling stock, buildings, etc. they desire from the range, and everybody should get a word in as to what they want, but in my opinion, I don't think a Bachmann Lady will be coming round the bend any time soon.

Thank YOU!!!! I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking this. I want to add my thoughts on this as well: now I hate to bash on the movie, but it was terrible with how it was handled. I mean they could've been better if there hadn't been any major editing going on (like removing Boomer from the script completely). And Lady, someone based off of "magic" should exist on Sodor? No no no no no. Why? Because, Awdry himself based the series off on his experiences, as well as the events that occurred in real-life back in the day before any of us existed. But to have an engine that no one knows what she's based off of (or at least loosely based off of), also doesn't have any redeeming personalities from the mere couple of minutes she had in two movies/specials, people want her to be made in HO scale?Huh??!!! Yeah, no sorry people, but she's not gonna be made at all. Be realistic people! Just like Cirkit said, you can make your own Lady if you wanted too...! -_-'

Plus to add to why characters introduced in the first movie are pathetic, Diesel 10's the only character to appear in the majority of  specials shown, showing no changes what-so-ever (CAE, everyone feared him, but became friendly with everyone; MIR, he appears near the completed bridge being "devious"; and DOTD, he basically plotted to take over the Steamworks, but acted like a kid at a playground/ball pen or something like that........).... Seriously? -_-'

If you have the 60-80 that a Lady model would cost you could probably throw something together that would look quite nice, it's all part of the hobby.

Replying to Zoran202 the movie had some plot issues but had a pretty descent impact on the series bringing Diesel 10 into the actual series. Now that I think about it why didn't they keep Splatter and Dodge do you guys know?
