Yay! I am very excited! I was really hoping they would rerun Percy and James! Here's hoping Henry and Gordon follow :) Personally I would like Donald and Douglas best, but I can't expect the moon I suppose! :) Thanks very much for bringing this to my attention :)

I think they ran out of steam after the  big Five  - Donald & Dougls will have to be scratch built!

Sadly, they only made Thomas, Henry, James & Percy; I did read that Gordon was going to be made, but I've never seen this available.

Tomy T-Arts models are " thomas " scale , with clockwork mechanisms. I have a Toby and he's very nice! there seems to be a Gordon!

you may find some via Ebay or perhaps @railsquid could advise?

In addition to being Valentine's, it is also HWMBO's and my anniversary and one of my presents was an envelope with preorder confirmations for Percy and James! It seems he has signed up for a newsletter from the site I got my Thomas from and knew about them before I did! They were already preordered for me when I first read this thread, the sneaky devil! :D As you can imagine, I'm well chuffed and quite excited for the summer now!

Thomas comes with Annie and Clarabel, Percy with an open Wagon and a covered wagon, and James with SC Ruffey. No coach announcements yet, but I've got my fingers crossed that they will reintroduce most or all of the original range and expand it to include a few more :) The first run of Thomas certainly sold quickly and preorders for Percy are filling up already.

At least the re-release will kill the stupid second hand prices, until the next time. 8)

I sold my Thomas for 125 a couple of years ago  :beers:

(thank you Ebay)

Yep. They've been out since November in Japan. I got mine at Christmas :) The full set comes with Ffarquhar station, a windmill, a watermill, a controller, a loop of track (5.5" radius!!!) with a switch and a siding, as well as Thomas, Annie, and Clarabel, of course!
