Does anyone think that Bachmann will release the final production picture of daisy and Peter Sam around when the new announcements are announced in February?

I don't think it's likely seeing that Daisy will have moving eyes and the narrow gauge take a while to make but i could be wrong. Wink

It could depend on when production actually started. The process could've started not very long after Toy Fair last year.

For the Bachmann Daisy, they would probably make two seperate gearboxes: the front one with the moving eye mechanism will be screwed down, with a dummy front bogie with free rolling wheels below it and the rear one being part of the main drive bogie.

As for Peter Sam, they might have started production of him right after releasing Rusty, so at the very least, we might get an unpainted engineering sample of Peter Sam shown at the 2020 toy fair and image of it on the 2020 catalog.

I expect Daisy's image to be revealed in the 2020 catalog at the earliest.

As for Peter Sam, he may have been in production as soon as Rusty was finished, like you said. It's possible his image could also get revealed in the 2020 catalog, but given the track record of Narrow Gauge models, I wouldn't bet on it.

Since the 75th Anniversary is coming up, the announcements in a few months shouldn't be mediocre, but at the same time, I'll try not to have expectations too high.

Two of my pictures have been shared through Bachmannís social media, and I figured I would share them here.  Merry Christmas!

Apparently he is a darker brown.

I think they are repainting a model every year?

I think they just added the black couplings, maybe some other minor touch ups

The sad truth is, $60 for Emily is one of the more reasonable prices Iíve seen for her, (or any Bachmann model for that matter), but the fact that Target of all places has her only available as a six pack with just Emily models is really bizarre.  I guess that might be one way local hobby shops can buy models of her to resell at a higher price if they so wished.

Where do you see them listed as $60? When I go to the link, it shows the listing for $381.99.

If you buy the 6-pack you would be buying each of the Emily models for a little over $60 ($63.67 to be exact) each, but again you wouldnít be buying just one Emily model individually for that price as you can only purchase her at Target with the six pack being the only option.
