Cgi James is Better

The-ARC-Minister's avatar
Why do you like that version better?
302195's avatar

Because CGI is cool! Especially Big World Big Adventures.

I can’t tell if you’re joking or serious...

CGI James is based on Wharf James

I notice that the CGI model of James is more similar to his model when he is with the Skarloey railway, I mean on a large scale.

New changes. The only one I could spot was the brighter rim of Model James' wheels.

The-ARC-Minister's avatar

Thats something I never noticed until tonight: that CGI James has full black wheels, whereas every single other CGI character has silver rims on their wheels.

The five is smaller on CGI James, but good spotting of the other differences.

Thanks

Do you prefer James from the CGI era or the model era?
ThomasFan21's avatar

That’s actually hard.
Though I like the model series James as it is representing the first James in the series, I do like the CGI James because I think it looks better.
The-ARC-Minister's avatar
I really dislike how CGI James looks and behaves.
Model James would be ashamed of his behaviour.
