The confirmation which appears to have played down speculation on Sodor Blackout, was sighted on a similar product, Snow Clearing Henry.
Available as a Toys R Us exclusive, the Henry vehicle, also linking to Hiro's version, serves a fresh theme entitled, Sodor Snow Storm.
The green engine is covered in snow as he wears a green snowplough similar to Thomas' whilst connected to a Misty Island flatbed of Jobi Logs.
Unrelated to the subject, Brendam Fishing Co. serves as a basic set holding Thomas and a red truck picking up supplies from a moveable and poseable crane.
Toys R Us' Snow Clearing Henry and Brendam Fishing Co. from Fisher Price hit toy shelves worldwide later this year.
