Thomas 2021 Reboot
Does mattel really think we can't spot the jarring similarity?

“This would show they are reserved for very special occasions and are therefore "prestigious".
I understand people like gold engines (so do I) they sell well (if marketed correctly), but when you use it too much, it becomes common and stops feeling "special" if you get what I mean.”

I totally agree with you on this. Gold/Silver/Chrome locomotives should be only be made when a milestone/achievement is accomplished, like a birthday celebration every 5 years or so...

I don't want to bring this up, All Engines Go could be coming to China, they could be targeting Japan next and Mattel will make Takara Tomy discontinue their Thomas lineup no matter how successful it is and replace them with the Motorized Lineup Mattel has. Hopefully this doesn't happen anytime soon.

I think that's very unlikely that they'd get rid of Plarail Thomas now.
Just call me Ffar

Pretty much because Plarail Thomas is pretty popular. Hopefully they keep it the way it is now.

Not yet confirmed (I don't know is it some fan edit or will it be released; found him on Twitter):

Rainbow Diesel
I'll call him DUI Diesel... :D

Also not confirmed - Greatest Moments Percy & Bruno

Now, if they are going to release Bruno in this Greatest Moments edition, he'll probably be the first piece  of rolling stock that is of appropriate height in relation to the AEG engine...  :)

If Plarail were to ever get discontinued I am very sure high quality knock-offs will get made like what happened with old TrackMaster.

I'm expecting later this year or next year that Takara Tomy will produce a redesigned line of All Engines Go themed Plarail, Tomica, and Capsule Plarail items. For the Plarail range, it will have been over 10 years since the last dramatically reduced line change. Based on the timing, it could either be a 30th anniversary thing or a thing that will occur afterwards so that existing products can be used to more appropriately celebrate 30 years of Plarail Thomas.

Given the fact that there have been a lot of bad prophecies lately, all of which have failed so far, it would be nice to know if you base your "expectations" on some concrete evidence, insights or information.  :)

So I finally acquired one All engine go Thomas.  I tried to install the piston rod on Thomas, it didn't work as the hole in the rear wheel is too small.  So I decided to swap out the rear wheel and replace it with a trackmaster revolution wheel.  they are perfect match even the gear between the wheels is the same.  However when I install the piston on to the front wheel, there is not enough for the piston o move freely.  In theory if you replace the front wheels' axel with revolution axel it should work.

For Plarail maybe the main line will remain the same but the ringing line will get the AEG revamp.

What evidence, insights or information are you basing that prophecy on, ThomasSirHandel?  :rolleyes:

I don't see why would you install the rods on AEG engine, since they don't have them in the show anyway, but nevertheless: back in October, Super drew our attention to the following video:





Could the problems you point out be solved that way?
