Keep in mind they're still prototypes.

I believe someone on Twitter posted a photo of the new Stanley
There is seemingly no difference from the prototype and I'm okay with that.

That S.C.Ruffey face looks amazing. First angry WR face we've seen for him I think!

Trevor should've been closer to the 2000-2007 version (albeit with red wheels and this version's face). The button on S.C. Ruffey's side ejects the explosives as if they went off inside him (.......) I feel he is the best of the three.

There's also some new items like the Henry in the Dark pack (which doesn't come with Henry smh), but who cares about that

Really? They should totally make a variant of Henry with real phosphorescent paint sometime soon. Children already love things that glow in the dark in real life, so they missed an opportunity there.

They instead have a yellow cargo car with a wooden hazard-striped sign to put in it, and a glow-in-the-dark paint tanker car, although it isn't an actual tanker; they used the same mould as the glow-in-the-dark aquarium cars and the oil car.

Next up we have Hugo! He seems to be made entirely out of wood except for wheels, couplings, propeller, and face.

They did Hugo better than I thought he would look. However, they should've either removed the middle wheels or made specialized 1-axle bogies, because he's meant to have four. Perhaps that could be a stability thing. I'm just glad they didn't make him Thomas or Percy's length. Curiously, his plastic bubble appears to be slightly slanted like he's taking off. Could that be intentional? I'm surprised the propellor is not advertised as being able to spin, let alone that it can't.

Here's a correction I just did:

Several new images have surfaced of new models. They're redesigning the Steam Team again, except for Toby it seems. Victor is also getting redesigned. The changes for 2017 seem to be quite minor, with most engines simply getting new faces, and smaller ones at that.

It's definitely for stability. Hugo has 4 wheels in the show, anyway. A Wooden Railway item has never been made with that length that has less than 8 wheels, and i have a hard time figuring out how it would work unless they made it one solid piece, which would just cause more problems because he'd be extremely tight around corners.
The real Schienenzeppelin most likely would have been far more successful had it been given 4 or 6-wheeled bogies instead of only two axles. Would allow for better turning and, in some cases, better traction.

As for the propeller, it probably will be able to spin. It looks loose enough that it would, and it wouldn't make sense to remove the spinning propeller feature from his model in Mattel's most popular Thomas toy line. If it spins in Trackmaster and Adventures, which it does, then surely it will spin in Wooden Railway.
