    Whoa. Whoa whoa whoa.

    So now... do I sell my G1 version so I can get a minty encore? How were the molds holding up for the Unicron Trilogy release? Mine is missing many of the accessories and could use fresh stickers, this could make that happen

    I'm verryyy tempted to get this! I've always wanted one ever since Robots in Disguise in the early 2000's (and to this day I hate they "safety reasons" for not releasing him =/ ) and even though it wouldn't be in the R.I.D. / Car Robots colors it would still be cool having the mould.

    You'd better do it now, but then there's always that chance that the Encore reissue could have mold degradation problems.

    I own encore 1-4, Metroplex, Omega and Sky Lynx. Has their been any negative feedback across the board with the others?

    I wanted Bruticus but people had some mixed thoughts about the quality of those molds. Granted those molds have been reissued much much more often.

    WOW.....Honestly...for something that is such a holy grail for $350 is a steal. Shipping will probably be $100 or more. I would say figuring inflation, $350 is prolly close to its original retail price

    I just pre-ordered mine. You can get it airmailed and get it three weeks sooner for $50 more but I went with the cheaper option. I think the shipping was $26.50. Loose, complete vintage ones go for around $1000 on eBay and ones with the box go for around $2000. I am liking this option.

    Fairly unprecedented reissue in a rather flat economic times.
    They're just playing it safe for now.

    I wonder what He'll cost at TFSource since they will have no choice but to build the shipping into the cost.

    I'd hazard a guess at a few changes since the encore line is known for making small colour switches for toon accuracy.

    Will I buy it HELL YEAH never had one never really seen one apart from online so I gotta get it
