Quote from: BassTbone on February 16, 2019, 07:49:14 AMTomix never released past four engines, with the newer releases only being the first three. I know from experience that the tooling for the newer ones was terrible. I went through two James locos because they stripped gears with little use. Tomix was also over-scaled.
Quote from: Chaz on February 18, 2019, 08:33:34 PMAs nice of an idea as that would be, I think it's almost obvious, if not inevitable, that they will go with the CGI designs for the characters in the new n scale range.Doesn't mean that we can't replace the faces on the models with 3D printed faces or anything.

Quote from: Streak on February 20, 2019, 01:45:15 AMOn the topic of characters in N Scale, I concur with TrainFan97 that it will take a while to make all the main characters in N Scale, but hopefully Bachmann will play their cards right and if they see an opportunity to reuse pieces like chassis and molds to get characters released quicker, they'll take it. Release Henry alongside Gordon. Release Mavis alongside Toby. Release Paxton alongside Diesel. Get more characters that the consumers want. Maybe I'm being too ambitious (I'm writing this post right before going to be rn) but I think that's what Bachmann can do to get this N Scale train rolling.
Quote from: Falcon the 2nd on February 20, 2019, 11:35:01 AMReleasing two engines that are capable of sharing a single chassis together is an ideal way to approach character creation. Gordon and Henry's HO models were both released in the same year, so I can see it likely happening again in the N Scale lineup. And if Mavis isn't the perfect partner to release alongside Toby, I pretty much don't know who is.
