I thought bachmann was gonna start producing diesel,duck &rosie this year..DAMN IT!!! Angry

First, don't swear. Like GG said, the world isn't ending.

Second, why would they make Rosie? She's quite new, so I think they see know reason to make her until she has a bigger role.

If anything, Stanley will come at some stage. With him being in a new feature, he will become quite popular with children and parents. Kader (who own bachmann) would be looking at producing something for profit, rather than demand with the consumer group. Hence the reason only popular charcters have so far been produced.

Kader only produce models to gain money in the Thomas range, so only characters who have a large screen time will be produced. Or they will look at the sales of characters in othern product lines ie: Tomy, Wooden, Take-along.

Actually, i watched some of Season 11 a few days ago, and Rosie was in quite a few of the episodes, and besides there mainly just being MALE characters being produced into models, it would be nice to see a few more female engines being made in the near future alongside some old faves from Seasons 2 - 7.

It would make sense too if they did make Rosie, mainly because of how popular she is becoming.  Rocky has a chance of coming out by Bachmann too and maybe Harvey would be good too.

Also, yes I would have liked to see Duck, Diesel, and Rosie, maybe even Arthur too.  I'm still happy though that they are making the rolling stock we are all wanting and same with Salty.  So overall, you should be happy with what you get, don't bite the hand that feeds you. Wink

Chill, the world isn't ending. Be happy with what you get, and what you can't get, make.
I do not want to make existing thomas characters I rather leave that to bachmann & I only want to do original thomas characters.

Well what do you want us to do about it? The only people that can fulfill our/your Thomas and Friends model railway needs are Bachmann and yourself, (or Hornby if you like their models as well. I myself own three). What Bachmann produces each year is what we get, and I have not been disappointed by any of their models yet, even if it is not the desired character I would've wanted to be released, they are extremely accurate and leave me speechless each time. If you aren't quite the 'modeler', like I am Tongue lol, then you're gonna have to wait just like the rest of us. Just be patient, everyone will get theirs in the end. K? Cheesy

You know I hope HenryBlue ends up like Percy did.  He always thinking he's better than me all the time.  If that isn't Percy who did something stupid its probably HenryBlue.

It takes a long time to make mouldings accurate and correct, and Bachmann make wonderful models with great time and care, i just cannot wait to see what Salty turns out like when he does eventually come around....

Edward and Mavis are mainly top of my list for 2008 models to get when they come around, Edward is am most wanting to see.

coupling hooks,brake pipes,and buffers available in packs,the bogies found
on the express coaches available in packs,and a model of Lady.
