So far I am very impressed with the Encore line. I have a feeling that we will continue to be suprised with the fantastic reissues that we have been getting. Here is why I have high hopes that this will be the best line since the original Gen. One line. 1. This is the best chance for collectors that don't have unlimited funds for originals to be able to get the next best thing ....these great reissues in their original style packaging. 2. I like the little changes (Improvements) Trailbreaker blue eyes, Omega Supreme face under head sheild, etc... 3. Same top quality plastic and diecast parts as originals. I have read on diffrent forums that some people are complaining that the encore line is made of inferrior plastic and such. I have my original 1985 Omega Supreme standing next to the new Encore one... There the same! The only one that I have found to be diffrent is Soundwave. His play and record buttons are one plastic piece in every reissue.... and the original was of course seperate Diecast metal pieces. I don't pretend to know everything about TFs so if anyone can state diffrently please do. I just think this new Encore line is a dream come true for Gen One collectors who can't afford MISB originals.
