Sorry for the delay and missing Christmas. But as you can see, he is done and will be on his way soon.

He looks so surprisingly well done! I'm not sure that I'm happy that he isn't going to fit in with everyone else, bar the Class 08's, but the fact that he got a retooled lamp, made me really happy for some reason. Maybe that's a sign for a slight update for James, Thomas, and Percy?

Oliver being in his CGI form is really no surprise to me, but I have to give credit where credit is due though as they really hit the nail with the hammer on it with that design.  It will no doubt be a hit when it is released, I already have mine on preorder!  I also love how the model comes with the lamp, I know that I will be adding my own custom LED light to the model so Oliver can have his lamp lit up while running.

Bachmann have once again colored me impressed!  They really deserve a pat on the back for this one, especially with how long this model has been taking.  Very much worth the wait!

I was actually expecting Oliver to represent his original model form. That's one Bachmann product I won't be getting.

Maybe bachmann's leaving Rosie, Rheneas, Troublesome Truck 5 and the slate wagons until the trainfest in Milwaukee Wisconsin later this month at the earliest.

The illustration of Oliver in both 2015 and 2016 catalogs is him in his CGI design, which was what Bachmann is going to go off of when making the model.  It's the current version of the character on the show, and Bachmann uses the most current and up-to-date references for the characters on the show for production.  Any future models are going in the exact same direction due to the standards of Hit and Mattel.  Oliver was no exception and Rosie and Rheneas will be no different.

I can't tell if his face is more model-era or more CGI era. To me, it looks like a happy medium of both.

This was definitely worth the extended wait. Oliver could very well be aesthetically Bachmann's best Thomas engine yet, and that's really saying something considering Skarloey, Duck, Donald and Douglas.

I love the headlight being added (how long has it been since a Thomas engine had a headlight?) and the detail under the chassis. That looks exceptional.

I think Bachmann made Oliver look extremely amazing. I'm so happy for how Bachmann Oliver turned out. The face looks a lot better than I thought it would. Actually, the whole thing looks a lot better that I thought it would. I have to admit though, the face looks very close to the Season 3 smiling face from the episode "Bulgy" except the eye brows on the model are better than the eye brows in that episode imo. That's a plus that I really like. Another plus that I like is that there is no step ladder, and no hand rail on the front of it's water tanks. That gives it another little hint of the classic series version of Oliver. A feature we all might see on this model that will make the model look even better imo when we all see it in person, is that there might be a tail lamp on the lamp iron on the back of it's coal bunker. Bachmann might have outdone themselves with Oliver even further than they did with Duck, and Bachmann Duck is my favorite model. That says a lot right there for how well Bachmann produces there models. I'm really looking forward to purchasing this model when it is available. This was well worth the tedious wait. Thank you very much Bachmann!
