    Cool. I missed out on the book style reissue so I'll be hopefully getting this one instead.

    Wonder if there are any changes. As he looks the same without a direct comparison, but no Encore has been exactly the same as the original or a previous reissue. Sometimes Takara's website images of their reissues are completely indicative of the final product.

    I got the book reissue, but the stickers are peeling off. Had the same problem with the Soundwave reissue.

    Unless he's designed to react upon exposure to air and explode in size. Then again, maybe not.

    I'm one of those people who remember their TFs being huge and being severly underwhelmed when seeing them years later.

    I got the Hasbro release and I was pleasantly surprised at just how good Skids is. I wonder if the next Encore will be Sideswipe...

    I've got the Hasbro reissue & he's not that much of a favourite to warrant an Encore purchase so one Skids will be enough for me.

    All of 2 seconds of cartoon-time will do that... :lol

    I was a bit dissapointed with my TRU reissue Skids, his panels don't line up in car mode, he can't stand straight in bot mode, and the stickers won't even pretend to try and adhere to his plastic.

    Gonna have to tweak it to get it ok, but haven't been arsed yet.
