DJEHHOSDHAOIFWHSOSU?!?!?!?!?!?!

*Ahem*Önow that I got that out of my systemÖ

WHAT?!?! This is amazing!!!! I am SHOCKED for several reasons. First, this is an unprecedented announcement because itís July and Bachmann NEVER (as far as I know at least) announces new Thomas and Friends products any time other than Toy Fair in February. Second, ALL THESE ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE AMAZING!!!!! A Troublesome Tanker, reintroduced (or new?) rolling stock tooling, a highly anticipated Narrow Gauge character, AND DAISY!!!!!! Third, and I highlighted this part in the quote, DAISY HAS MOVING EYES!!!!!! I have no idea how Bachmann will pull that off, but Iím sure theyíve got the engineering figured out. ThisÖthis is just amazing.

I might have to get Daisy now! Iím actually really excited for the rolling stock too! Itís nice that thereís going to be more wagons with loads in the range. Peter Sam is definitely going to be a must have too! Iím pretty excited to see that Bachmann is starting a regular HOn3 line too!

Wow! Bachmann doesn't usually post special announcements halfway through the year! We usually have to wait until February, but man! At long last! DAISY IS OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED FOR HO SCALE!!! Peter Sam is also confirmed for HOn30 Scale, so now we're finally getting a fourth Narrow Gauge engine.

Daisy was the most exciting announcement since Oliver in 2015. The third new tooling in HO Scale since Mattel's takeover. Red Rosie will be available soon, and hopefully, at the earliest, Daisy will be in stock next summer.

Now that Daisy is confirmed, we could expect engines like LBSC Thomas, Black James, or Sidney announced in February 2020.

This might be the most bizarre and unexpected news I've woken up to yet. Nonetheless, wow! Daisy is finally coming to the Bachmann range. I don't think I've been this excited for a Bachmann product since Skarloey. Daisy is one of the few characters to benefit and improve in her CGI form over her model form, so this is a model I'm gonna be waiting at the front of the line to get, for sure!

As for Peter Sam, I was iffy on Rusty, but I was excited for Rheneas and Skarloey for sure, so I'll gladly be adding Peter Sam to the collection.

Overall, it's like Christmas in July! I welcome it.

We might see Daisy's image in the 2020 catalog when that comes next February.

At the earliest, we could expect her getting released next summer.

Wow! When I first saw a pic of the catalog I thought it was fake and that someone made it until I saw it on the forum! Maybe since next year is the 75th anniversary Bachmann did the announcement now and will have another one in February as a double announcement for the anniversary.

Looking back at all the responses on here, as well as the responses Iíve seen on social media, I donít think Iíve ever seen a lot of people in the fandom so... happy, which is a rarity especially with what Mattel has been doing with the brand as of late.  But to be fair, Mattel did have to approve these models and in some ways Iím still shocked that Mattel approved a model of Daisy, but clearly its a decision thatís going to pay off.  Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Tongue

But in all seriousness, I do like seeing these positive responses as I feel that Daisy and Peter Samís announcements have really restored a lot of faith some fans may have lost over the years over some arguably lackluster choices we have seen in the past.  Even the rolling stock that got announced at the NMRA is a lot better than the wagons that got announced at the Toy Fair this year.  Itís nice to see that Bachmann managed to surprise us just like I had hoped like I mentioned earlier.  Something I will happily eat my own words with.

The Bachmann Daisy is going to make a very huge impact in sales for Bachmann, in the exact same way Donald and Douglas did as Hornby never produced a model of her prior before dropping the license.  So clearly there is that extra bit of collectors value thatís following her moreso than Duck and Oliver.  A lot of people even like her CG render a lot more than Oliverís too, so more power to Bachmann on that one.  There is no doubt that this is the model that I think everyone is excited for the most and I think that is because of how much people wanted this character and how much of a surprise it was when she got announced yesterday.

Peter Sam seems to be making quite the positive reaction as well.  Iím really glad that they went with him instead of Duncan or any of the newer Narrow gauge characters.  Of course now we all know that the consistent demand for the next narrow gauge engine is Sir Handel.  But after how Peter Sam just happened to get announced not too long after Rusty arrived at dealers two years since he was announced, I have a feeling the next engine announcement will be a while.  Nothing wrong with at least having hopes up for brake vans once the coaches get released in the meantime. Wink

Either way, these ďspecial announcementsĒ really did do their justice and it certainly gives me some more hope for the future, all while making me anticipate these exciting new models as Iím sure it did for many others.  It goes without saying, Bachmann truly outdid themselves today in more ways than one.  Well done Bachmann.

Daisy got approved due to a mix of she is in the cgi series and was highly demanded, not just cause of the high demand from fans.

Fantastic, just need Boco and Trevor and I believe that completes the season 1 and 2 characters, which are the ones I most enjoy!

Trever will happen but until Boco is in the CGI he will not be modelled cause Mattel has it that only cgi series characters are allowed to be made.
