    It is now almost June and we have heard nothing about any new encore coming out in the next few months. Heck those rumored encores that were supposed to come out from Hong Kong never materialized. Can we all agree now that the line is dead or does someone have any super secret info to share? I loved this line, but all good things end.

    I am not spamming. I am just seeing if anyone has any news or if people will now agree that the line is over. It has been over 7 months since the last release.

    I would've thought they'd cash in on Blaster being done for SDCC and done up a G1 box for ENCORE

    Quite possible, but that would mean that "Encore" is dead and some new line of reissues is starting.

    I hope not. I'd like them to tackle some of the rarer G1 stuff. They did Stepper in the TFC line and I wish they would have done Artfire. I'd like the Dino Cassettes as well.

    I will keep faith in the Encores, and will chalk it up to their 2010 celebration and focus on other items (movie, animated). I won't say that it isn't concerning, but as others have pointed out, there will always be G1 remakes coming out in some form or another.

    As far as the Hong Kong items, we just got our confermation (preorders) about a month ago of the Henkei Prime that was announced at the same time, and about two months ago of the Henkei Hound, so I wouldn't say that those won't materialize quite yet. Hell, Prime and Hound have only had preorders on a couple sites.

    Ditto.


    And reissues are never %100 done, though whether any future items have "Encore" printed on the box is up for grabs.

    I would love to get more U.S. re-issues as well but I doubt it.

    If they do re-make any figures, I am thinking it would fall under the celebration line and more that likely Rodimus Prime would be one that would make sense.

    I think Encore is dead jsut like Classics and Universe are, but aren't and are now going to be Generations.

    Stephen King hasn't written a new book since "Under the Dome", therefore he is dead and his contributions are over.
    i haven't heard a Pearl Jam song in a while- they all die like Skynrd?

    The only time this "omg, 2 days has passed and no news" bullshit could fly was back when Edison invented shit every 20 minutes. Day after day, yo.


    it's getting fucking old to hear right after a release from someone who didn't get their joy-package item like Encore WheelJack (sarcasm there) they pronounce the line dead.

    when the head of TakTomy calls you personally on your celly, and says, "hari kari", then YOU will know when it is dead.

    and still, to prove a point, TFW2005 will already have Front-Paged it and there will be 95 pages of comments before you can log in.

    in other words, it ain't dead because we say so or assume so. it will a dead line when THEY tell us.

    sheesh.

    The Encore line was originally a product based on the Live action movie... I bet we won't be getting any new figures until TF3. Omega Supreme et al were branching out, but the line basically died until RoTF came out and Skids and the cassette tapes were then released.

    I hope they get Ultra Magnus out to the masses again, because he is rad and I want another one.

    I also have the feeling Takara-Tomy would focus on 2010 characters if any would come out this year - Rodimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Springer and Galvatron (these have already been reissued).

    Also there are still always those rumours on Sixshot and Predaking!
