That is an excellent point! WTH was Toby kicked out of the "Steam Team"? Edward and Henry were given reasons (even though the latter was reduced to a mere "passerby" comment while the former got practically an entire episode), so why the hell was Toby practically forgotten about?!
You know, I wasn't always a fan of the blue on Toby in the books, but upon seeing it again I'd say that it suits him. Very nicely done!.
Yet Toby is STILL in the season 22 - onwards Engine Roll Call as Mattel haven’t got a female character to make an 8th character to complete the 8 steam team.
(Maybe Mattel could replace James with two female red engine characters to make the steam team equal)
Really? Well, I've never seen the series recently, so I wouldn't know. Kinda surprised that Flora was brought back. Then again, they used Vinnie as the "North American" competitor in the GREAT RACE, when he's actually Canadian and they could've broguth Hank back, who actually is an American engine.
