There's no other truck like Hector if I remember correctly. I don't think he's too tall to be made though. He is tall but not too tall. Granted I don't know if they'd go all out for Hector sadly. I think the only rolling stock characters I can see them making brand new toolings for are Old Slow Coach and maybe the Slip Coaches. Characters like Hannah, Bradford, and Dexter can also be made using existing toolings.

Quote from: TrainFan97 on January 11, 2019, 12:55:39 AMOne month away from the 2019 announcements, and suspense is building. Could this be an improvement over last year's? I sure hope so. I'd be okay getting any engine with a new tooling as long as it's not Nia, Rebecca, or Philip.If we get Stepney or Daisy, I would be overjoyed. The two most highly-requested models.If we get Stanley, Porter, Samson, or Ryan, I'd be alright. Characters that are moderately-requested.If we end up getting another engine recolor, then Red Rosie, LBSC Green Thomas, or Black James would all be better-received than Sidney would, due to the fact that he's another Class 08, like Paxton and Grumpy Diesel, which were announced on two consecutive years.
Quote from: Chaz on January 11, 2019, 12:37:20 AMIn most cases for rolling stock, Bachmann uses ex-mainline toolings for HO, so I would bet on one of these toolings if we were to get hoppers anytime soon: I imagine they would likely come with a removable ballast load too, similar to the coal wagon. As for Hector, I really wouldn't count on him happening since he would require a new tooling and the tooling would likely be exclusive to Hector alone, which would make him even less likely from other rolling stock characters like Hannah or Bradford. The Bachmann Spiteful brake van isn't based on the Wooden Railway design. It uses the same livery on the large scale brake van model, which as a result made it a hybrid of both the classic series/RWS design. If it was based on the wooden railway design, the roof would be a different color and it would have a different face.
