I don't know if anyone has mentioned this before, but if we look at the box photo on Encore Metroplex, we can see five minibots, Blades, and First Aid. This image is different than the G1 box image, which also includes Wheelie and features a different angle. The five minibots are the five Encore #12 Minibots. If TakaraTomy wants to advertise their other products in the box shot, could an Encore Defensor be in the works? While Defensor is heavily KOed, that never stopped any of the numerous Bruticus reissues (Ruination, etc.) The Omega Supreme and Metroplex reissues have indicated that large-ticket items may be reissued in this line. I admit that this is little but speculation.
