While its only on one site, you have a window of what to expect.

Oh yes! I was looking for this website. It was spot on with Skarloey, the engine shed and the Red Coaches. Seeing that it says the discount is about $74, I expect something slightly the same when Oliver hits Amazon about 2-3 months after his release.

Why can't Americans just follow the rest of the world and do things properly? Like day/month/year, spelling words correctly ie Colour not color, Honour not honor, and drive on the correct side of the road too( which happens to be the left side, not the right!
The US is one of the "few" countries that drives on the "right" side?.......Uh-huh....Sure.

Before this discussion on culture gets carried on, I have some news for everyone regarding this years announcements.  Doug Blaine was generous enough to provide some information regarding the large scale DCC sound module as well as the characters who got mentioned in the module:

"DCC Sound Module is listed for LS because:
1)It is too large for HO products.
2)It is rated for higher track voltage more commonly used in LS.
3)Other characters are listed because it was easy to include them. It will be less expensive to include them now rather than changing the board later if we ever expanded the LS line with other locos. Let me be clear, the included locos should NOT be taken as a roadmap as to if and when new LS Thomas locos may be produced.
"

This should hopefully clarify any confusion as well as confirming that it is not best to expect said locomotives in the product description to be made.

One also interesting piece of news I have particularly for narrow gauge fans is he also confirmed that the slate wagons won't be Peco recolors, they will be an all new tooling. Smiley

^ Above 1 Reply - @Reply #116 By Chaz: I am hoping that it is good news, that Bachmann are making the tooling for the Slate Wagon's, because the cost of the last year's Wagon's is to much due to them being tooling form PECO. I hope for now on that Bachmann will create all the toolings for the future Wagon's to keep the cost of them down.

Bachmann has always succeeded in replicated Thomas & Friends rolling stock without mainline toolings.  Look at the mail coach and the paint flat car.
