Welcome To The SiF Shoutbox!
PercyFan1998: I think for me the issue is one of inconsistency. They took down the restored versions that have the highest quality image but will leave the lower-quality uploads all over the place. May 7, 2021 0:37:55 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: Except that if you put it that way, it is consistent: They're specifically targeting the higher-picture-quality restored versions. Because gee, what's up on the streaming services and for sale on new-pressed disks? The restored versions May 7, 2021 1:07:23 GMT *
zeldatheswordsm: They're trying to force you to head to the paid options if you want to get the good picture quality. May 7, 2021 1:09:31 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: Of course, in some ways the joke's on them because a lot of those restorations have worse editing and/or use inferior takes compared to the broadcast/VHS versions. May 7, 2021 1:10:48 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: IMO Mattel would profit a lot more if they slashed the merch licensing fees. They were damagingly high even by the time of buyout, and have gotten worse since. And the bloated price tags have been definitely hurting sales from what I've seen. May 7, 2021 1:16:28 GMT *
zeldatheswordsm: Sales of a lot of the Bachmann Thomas rolling stock seemed to plummet as the prices jacked up based on the discontinuations (And I suspect the same hit the Hornby range even worse). And the Wooden Railway range had vanished from non-TRU bigbox stores (tbc) May 7, 2021 1:21:53 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: in my area by 2015, and its shelf presence had been shrinking leading up to then. Thomas' shelf presence in general seems to have diminished a fair bit, and I imagine this is the cause. HiT and Mattel failing at distribution of the show can't have helped May 7, 2021 1:24:55 GMT
toadthegwrbrakevan: HiT actually distributed the show very well in my opinion, good merchandise, Thomas was definitely more popular and well-to-do during the Miller era than during BWBA or today. But I agree for everything else, I'm curious about what you say about TWR, May 7, 2021 2:53:36 GMT
toadthegwrbrakevan: growing up, the bigbox store never sold TWR, I could only get it at Barnes & Noble or Toys'R'Us, it was too expensive for Walmart or Target, that was Trackmaster territory. May 7, 2021 2:54:29 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: For a while, Target and Mall Wart actually did stock it and decently. At least where I am. But that was in decline. Probably didn't help that Thomas-size engines were around $15 May 7, 2021 4:35:16 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: And I mean that HiT did a poor job distributing the show itself - the actual episodes. They got complacent about seeking alternatives to PBSKids even as viewing there (and govt. support) slipped into decline - and Mattel continued this complacency. May 7, 2021 4:43:59 GMT *
LNERandBR: Well, personally I think it's time to draw a line under all that and concentrate on better things. Speaking of, we have a new ERS volume for you all :) Check out who's returning: :D May 7, 2021 11:04:07 GMT
harperman: I Have read up to i think 133 out of 376 volumes May 7, 2021 11:58:46 GMT
alexander876: Hey, Harperman, what did you think of Last of the Crewe Engines? May 7, 2021 15:39:19 GMT
harperman: I Thought it a very good ERS Volume May 7, 2021 15:45:56 GMT
harperman: I Am reading the entire ERS Library to gain a better understanding of it and its universe before attempting to try my hand at becoming an ERS Writer myself : D May 7, 2021 15:50:52 GMT *
BNSF1995: Maybe they shouldn't have been so hasty to get rid of the 125s: May 8, 2021 20:14:56 GMT
Christian the Atlantic Class: If the RWS were to return, Richard Awdry would most likely write it. May 11, 2021 0:56:53 GMT
toadthegwrbrakevan: Maybe, I think Chris Awdry is more likely to continue the series. May 11, 2021 21:37:02 GMT
Christian the Atlantic Class: That explains. May 12, 2021 14:01:39 GMT
