    Just ordered a few encore and masterpiece figures from hongkong..

    Is it likely that the UK will get the series do ya think?

    I hope so - so want omega when it comes out!

    Also stupid question

    encore - offical?
    ehobby - unoffical?

    Ebay:
    Won't get Encore in the UK (except in specialist shops) because it's a Japanese line.

    We have had 20th Aniversary Optimus Prime (the Western equiverlent of Masterpeice Convoy) though. Hopefully Masterpeice Starscream will show up eventually.

    thats a downer re encore... thank god for ebay lol

    Maybe we'll get an similar line? Seems a bit daft for them to invest all that money in molds etc and not release world wide...

    Hope we get at least starscream and skywarp.... and I hope we get some more g1 type stuff ... big G1 fan... though some of the movie stuff is actually appealing a bit...camaro BB being one so far lol

    TakaraTomy do not have the rights to the Transformer name in Europe.

    This means any "official" release of a Transformers product in the U.K. will be determined by what Hasbro do not TakaraTomy.

    Encore in the uk? errr VERY DOUBTFUL. i wish we did but sadly we wont. If you want reissue Omega Supreme then its obviously an ebay job or going forbidden planet, pulling your pants down and getting raped on the price they will charge you. Afew examples of this are RM Beast Megatron - Ebay purchased for £12 - forbidden planet £25!? Reissue Predaking - Ebay £140 with airmail included - forbidden planet £225!?

    We did have something similar it was called the Commemerative Series and included Starscream and Skywarp. In fact if you head to your local Toys R Us you may still find Skywarp, Red Alert, Tracks and Soundwave on the shelf among the movie toys.

    I'd rather get them off ebay or somewhere else on the internet myself because you usually get them for so much cheaper.
