    The Encore version has not been unveiled yet. All the pre-order pics are just photos of an original G1 Bruticus.

    TBH, I can't see much that they can change cosmetically to make it more "cartoon accurate" (which is the only reason they change things in Encore). Hope they keep this one the same.

    I remember seeing a pic last time showing a nicer painted head. There should be a few minor improvements

    The above is correct. No information has been released yet regarding the Encore Bruticus figure.

    The item hasn't even been solicited to some retailers and wholesalers yet for them to place their orders with Takara.

    I hope they just add a little Starscream to sit on his shoulder a la Starscream's Brigade/Revenge Of Bruticus.....

    I hope by that, you don't mean paint scheme!

    Reissues tend to have subtle structural modifications, such as the reinforcement on Ultra Magnus' trailer and Predaking's head antenna (integral on original verses separate pieces on the reissue). However Encore Bruticus will be pretty similar to the last re-release of the mould or even the same as Backstop said.

    Wasn't there a rumor going around that the Encore Bruticus giftset was gonna be delayed?
    Something about TakTomy not beeing able to handle the production simultaneously with all the ROTF toys.
    HLJ also still doesn't have a preorder up, which kinda worries me...

    I think the only major difference between original G1 and the last RID releases is the snub nose on Blastoff (G1 was pointy). That and the mold degradation (only have the original so don't how severe, if it all, this might be).

    I hope they fix the shuttle nose back to pointy myself, and of course it will be straight G1 colours. I don't mind the other little improvements (ie the filled underside of the cannons that fit into Onslaught/Bruticus's back - G1 had a mold channel visible).

    If they don't fix the nosecone I'll break out my sealed-on-card G1 Blastoff (Don't worry it's only the less rare Euro gold-card release ;)  )

    I am looking forward to seeing this. I've never had one but would like one to display with one of my Starscream minis.

    I am looking forward to this release so that I can have a G1 Bruticus in my G1 collection instead of the Universe Ruination.

    I though I read somewhere that the Encore Bruticus would have die cast metal chests on the individual figures.

    I don't think that has been confirmed. Just a lot of speculation due to the high price tag.

    I just want a combiner. So, the price tag - eh, i'll just need to live with it. The way i look at it is i just compare it to a MP toy - i'm essentially getting 5 toys versus 1 (weird way to look at it, but that's how i can justify spending this much =P). Too bad i missed out on the Devy.

    Which Devy do you refer. There has been no reissue of him.

    No, G2 Combaticon colors= mega fail. The G1 colors were tolerable if you consider that it's a bunch of military vehicles plus a space shuttle combining into a giant talking and walking WMD. G2 however, was absolutely horrible because of the clashing neon colors, it could sear human eyes if it was any brighter.
