What if nia and rebecca were in model form
I'm still working on Henry, but when I was watching YouTube videos this morning, I saw this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj3jwNVChEo
I found it on the official Thomas & Friends UK YouTube Channel. The reason I put this picture is because for some reason, when I put the link here, the video isn't showing up. What do you think of it?
Season 1-7: Awesome! These are the best seasons of Thomas, and maybe some of the best seasons of children's television in general. They have adapted classic stories from The Railway Series. It also has original stories by Britt Allcroft and David Mitton, stolen stories written by Andrew Brenner, and stories by hired writers for the last two seasons. I like these seasons because they have awesome models, awesome sets, awesome stories, and awesome action. Another thing I appreciate is that it respects the audience and doesn't assume they're stupid. 10/10.
Seasons 8-12: Ladies and gentlemen, this is where the show goes downhill. They develop a three-strike formula that became very overused. They also began having open wagons to carry food items in. Like, really? If I order flour and sugar, I don't want sparks, smoke, and bugs getting into it. What a terrible way of transportation. This was also the era that introduced one-off characters to sell toys. I also recall the characters acting dumber in this era, especially Emily. However, I'm still fond of this era. There were still some great stories...sometimes. The sets were also great. Not as great as the seasons that came before, but still great. It depends on which set you're looking at. 7/10.
Season 13-16: They destroyed the characters, they have next to no good episodes, and the three-strike formula became normal for every episode. You can tell they didn't care about it. 2/10. And the reason I'm giving it a 2/10 is for Hero of the Rails and Blue Mountain Mystery. But if we don't count the specials, it's a 0/10 real easy.
Seasons 17-21: I love this era. It's not as good as Season 1-7, but hear me out: The stories became good again, the characters and dialog got a lot better, the series just became great again. There are a lot of awesome episodes, and a few of the specials are awesome as well. There's a few flaws in this era, like not experimenting in tone, as The Unlucky Tug mentioned. You can also tell there was a lot of corporate meddling, especially in the specials. It's a shame it all came to an end after Season 21. It wasn't even a slow decline, the show got bad fast with Season 22, and I'll explain why. Overall, I give this era an 8/10. As I said, not as good as the early model seasons, but still, this era was the peak of the CGI series. If it wasn't for this era, people would probably disregard the CGI series entirely. Big respect to the crew who worked on this era. Thanks for making the series enjoyable again.
Seasons 22-24: These are the seasons where Thomas travels the world. There is no big storyline with these episodes, he just goes to other countries to do jobs. I don't blame Sir Topham Hatt for doing this, he has WAY too many engines at this point. Henry and Edward also get replaced by two female engines. I wouldn't mind this if it was done right. Henry and Edward are two very developed characters, and Nia and Rebecca look like they were made up on the spot. They have no interesting traits besides being from Africa and making clumsy mistakes. But no worries, at least Henry and Edward are still part of the show. Oh, wait a minute, no they aren't. What a slap in the face to the fans. There is also no narrator in this era. Thomas being the narrator just doesn't feel right. It's annoying. But yeah, this whole era was a big dumpster fire. The show sucked, the toys sucked, and Mattel sucks. There were next to no good episodes, except Yong Bao and the Tiger, and whatever Michael White wrote. However, Mattel made one good decision in this era, and that was cancelling the show. They introduced flying cars and robots, what would have been next, Thomas and his friends having a race on Rainbow Road? I'm glad the show stopped before we got to this possible episode concept. Thanks Mattel, you ruined it for everyone. 2/10. And the only reason I'm giving it a 2/10 is because of Michael White. Without him, it would have been 0/10. ZERO OUT OF TEN.
Thanks for reading. :)

I have to use this method since I can’t find the adventures Nia. She is perhaps my easiest customs to date, as I only spent three hours on this yesterday.

Welcome to the 6th Instalment of Guess the Character!
The only steam team member who comes from a different country.
Made in all 5 merchandise lines.
Has a red running board like Gina, Merlin, Rebecca and Duchess.
Appeared in every series of the BWBA Era since her introduction.
Has an interest for Animals.
Good Luck and also, DO NOT LOOK IT UP!
This is what I think Nia would look like in a dystopian AU. I'm not too happy with this one, since I left a lot of orange in it. I'm hoping to redo it.
So guys, in response to those "if you could have an engine as part of your family" polls I've been doing, I decided to do something to compliment them, and that is sharing my say on what it would be like to have these engines as part of your family. I'll be going over different groups of engines for each of these posts, and what better way to start this off than by covering the Steam Team, both former and current? So without further ado, let's get into it, shall we?
Thomas is like a mischievous and slightly cocky, but cheerful and well-meaning brother. He will sometimes tease you and boast about his own achievements, which could get on your nerves, but he will always do his best to cheer you up when the chips are down and make himself very clear of how supportive of you he is.
Edward is the definitive father or grandfather. He will always welcome you with open buffers, show a good sense of humour, listen to you when you have a problem and give you solid advice whenever you're lost or confused.
Henry is like a father who is normally kind and patient, but has a few limits that you need to be careful with. Normally, he's very easy to talk to and get along with, but if you suggest something that he sees as not true, he can get a bit temperamental. In some social instances, he can also be somewhat shy and reclusive.
Gordon is very much a jock older brother. He is very proud of his physique and takes great pleasure in flaunting his abilities, boasting, showing off and even belittling you on occasions. However, at his core, he will always have your back at the end of the day and will give you a kind word or two whenever you're feeling dejected enough.
Having James as a family member is not easy, to say the least. He will boast about his importance on a daily basis, and oftentimes will take delight in your misfortune and laugh at you. But on his good days or in extremely dire situations, he will express support for you, and in spite of his vain nature, he will never turn your back on you.
Percy is like a playful and curious little brother. He loves to look for fun and have a laugh with you, even in less-than-appropriate situations, and he will frequently turn to you for advice and knowledge about new things he hasn't done before. He will also make the occasional scoff at things he doesn't understand or see the point of.
Much like Edward, Toby has a fatherly or grandfatherly personality. He will always be ready to share a wise word or two with you and display a good, quick-witted sense of humour. However, he can be assertive and stern with you whenever you're being too silly, and can be a bit reclusive when it comes to any form of extreme activity.
Emily is very much two things, a confident and outgoing big sister, and a kind, protective and supportive mother. Your happiness is something that matters to her more than almost anything else; she will encourage you to keep trying on something new, stand up for you whenever you're being mistreated, give you advice in moments of uncertainty, listen to you as well as she can if you have a problem to talk about, and will never leave your side no matter what. She's also not afraid to scold you or call you out if you're being irrational, so it's wise not to get on her bad side.
Nia is also like a sister to you; she will do her best to keep you happy and keep on the right track, and is not afraid to show her more firm side whenever you're being unreasonable.
Rebecca will always try her best to bring out the best in you and will support you no matter what. Like with Emily before, your happiness is more important to her than anything else and she will always be on your side in whatever the situation.
But at the end of the day, that's just how I see it, so let me know if you see it slightly differently.
