    If SOMEBODY doesn't reissue a Trailbreaker, Ramjet & Thrust, I am gonna cry!

    After the 2 Encores and the next 2 KOs, I will have all of 1984-1985, not counting minibots and cassettes...

    encore seems to be doing movie figures first (substituting soundwave for blackout and frenzy), so I'd assume Jazz would be next.

    I will venture and say no because that logo is trademarked by both the Red-Cross and J&J (Band-Aid). Both companies actively litigate wrongfull use as well.

    You can google to find cases.

    The Reprolabel G1 Ratchet set has all the crosses for the top and the sides(on the backside of his hands).
    I bought a set a few months back for my old G1 Ratchet.

    It looks like the Encore Ratchet may not include these from the pics I have seen and the legal issues others have mentioned.

    Is this official? Or just a speculation?
    I must have been sleeping when this was announced.

    considering that I use the words "seems" and "assume", no, it's not official.

    Doesn't matter. As long as they keep it up, I'll be happy.

    And how many of those were tried in Japan under Japanese copyright laws? Out of curiosity.
