    I've bought alot of the G1 encore series because frankly I lov'em since I never had the orginals. So to me its better then going to evilbay and paying outragous prices for an orginal item.

    Slammer's turret has a new peg on the back, so it can be used as a tower antenna.

    (i think...?)

    Trailbreaker's blue visor is just paint. You can dismantle him and remove his face, allowing you to remove the paint and restore his original red visor.

    I'm a big fan of encore. I have hope that we'll get more new characters through eHobby.

    I think the mod on Metroplex is that the tank now pegs on in city mode to make another tower.
