    As far as I can tell, all standard Encores that we know about have abeen released. Do we know if there will be anymore between now and the end of the year? I'm not asking who you think it will be or anything, but just will there be more? How often do they pump these out? It seems to be pretty fast.

    I think the blue E-Hobby Omega Supreme/Guardian Robot is the last this year, if I'm not mistaken.

    as TF are more popular and mainstream than any time in the last 15 years (???) it would seem odd if reissues stopped now esp as they have been hammering them out for almost a decade already.

    Sky Lynx was no huge success, and I have a feeling the same may end up being true for Metroplex and Omega Supreme. If Takara took a breather for the year, it would make sense to me.

    If Encore is going to give us something else, I doubt we'll hear about it any later than the end of October. Even that seems too long.

    There's the eHobby Guardian Robot repaint but other then that nothing has been announced which means it will be a real long shot we'll see anything new until early 09 presuming they'll keep them going. I think it's just wait and see, people can speculate all they want but until something concrete is announced (a la Takara/Tomy/TFW front page announcement) know body knows what the status of Encore is.

    I've heard rumors of Encore Dinobots, but once again that's just rumors.

    We will see.

    With recent Encores like Sky Lynx, Omega Supreme, Minibots, Seekers 2 pack and Metroplex out for the Christmas season... I highly doubt that there will be any announcements made for future Encores until next year.

    Plus next year is the 25th Anniversary of TF's and with Hasbro doing a 25th Anniversary G1 Prime... I'm certain that Takara / Tomy has something better on the way for 2009.

    Fingers crossed for Fortress Maximus!

    I don't think we are going to see Scorponok or Trypticon as Encores, since bad guys apparently don't sell well in Japan. Have you noticed that all the big Transformers being released in Encore are Autobots? I'm suprised we even got Predaking.
