Hey guys I made this thread for those who enjoy the classic Thomas episodes where Thomas and his friends get into sticky situations. Below is a list of Limited edition models for the HO scale range I created. I decided that these limited edition models would be very cost effective and easier to produce rather than introducing new characters. Not that I donít want new characters itís just that times are hard right now for Bachmann because of tooling costs to make new molds. So I decided to create a thread that would totally change things up with limited edition models that commemorate classic episodes of the TV series.

Thomas Comes to breakfast- Sad face Thomas with a bush painted on his smokebox, leaves painted on his boiler and dust and dirt around his tanks with some weathering. Also egg yolks on his cheeks to add more humor.

James Goes Buzz Buzz- surprised face red nosed James with bees painted on his boiler. This was mentioned in the Thomas in 2020 thread.

Henry in Something in the Air- Sad face Henry with Fish painted on his boiler and tender and water blotches on his boiler and tender.

Now this is just a start. If you guys think this is a good idea please drop your ideas below I hope I donít get made fun of for this.

Your ideas are great. I suggest a tar covered James with a sad face and a coal covered thomas as seen in double trouble (American version of Thomas, Percy and the coal) with an angry face. Another choice is wooly bear Percy as seen in the said episode.

I would also like to suggest a season 1 style troublesome truck, along with the old coaches. Another great choice would be the orange branch line coaches.

Thank you so much those Ideas are great too. I just custom photoshopped my own ideas of the first 3 as mentioned above. I think Bachmann could make these and still make great with sales

If anything, it would be the faces that sell the models, especially on Thomas, Percy and James. I think a jam/trousers covered Percy with a sad face could work well. They could also do something like a Thomas with a shocked face and quarry dust like in Trust Thomas.

Bachmann trains are awesome. I hope they come out with Stepney one day.

Like I suggested in the 2020 thread, Smudger would be a good potential candidate for a limited edition model.

Most of your ideas will fit for the Thomas Wood line.

A chocolate crunch Percy would be great, along with a paint covered Thomas and maybe include the flatbed with paint drums as a returning exclusive.
