Stepney the Bluebell Engine is to return to die-cast Thomas & Friends as a Take-n-Play model.
The visiting engine will debut in the Fisher Price and Mattel produced range this spring in the UK and US.
An image of the new model released by Smyths shows Stepney sporting a CGI style face.
Compared to his preceding Take Along version, minor adjustments have been made to his funnel, wheels and cab.
Take-n-Play Stepney from Fisher Price hits UK and US toy shelves this spring.
