    Colin the Crane
    Gender: Male
    Type: Forgettable Crane
    Species: Crane
    Portrayed by: Michael Angelis (UK)

    Media of origin: Thomas & Friends
    First appearance: The Party Surprise (only appearance)

    Why He Sucks

    1. For starters, he's only used as filler for one episode.
    2. He has limited exposure and development, making it hard for viewers to express an interest.
    3. He is completely one-dimensional and is as stale as burnt toast, meaning he has absolutely no personality whatsoever, with the exception of being friendly and helpful, which is just a watered down version of one of the main characters traits, in that case the title character himself, Thomas, Percy, Edward, Henry, or even Gordon and James.
    4. It is unexplained to how he got to the wharf, which ironically was introduced in season 9 (2005), which seeing him here 3 seasons later in season 12 (2008) makes it very confusing.
    5. His debut episode he came from, which is "The Party Surprise", is pretty forgettable which makes him forgettable as a whole.
    6. Even though most of the HIT era characters from seasons 9-12 don't have the biggest personality, he is one of the characters who you would hear no one is a fan of.
    7. Also like the other characters in these seasons, especially the other 2 from this season (Hank and Flora), he only appears one time to sell toys and other merchandise and nothing more.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. His dynamic with Fearless Freddie was actually pretty decent, had he not been poorly executed as a character.
    2. While it is generic, it is understandable why he is so sad and depressed throughout the whole episode, because he is lonely and he is fixed in place.
