    Already got him in pre-order! I never thought about getting him before but decided to get him anyway.

    Old news.

    Incredibly disappointed - the TFC (and Hasbro) reissue is still easily available. Give us something better Encore!!

    I have the TFC version but will be getting this one so I can have the G1 style box. I would like to have all the autobot cars released with g1 boxes so I can have an entire set of them with the same type of box.

    Skids is in the movie, that means he gets reissued. It's really that simple. If a movie bot has a G1 equivalent, Tak/To will try and reissue it. Don't be suprised if the next encore is Sideswipe.

    Well, all the Autobots from the '07 movie have been Encore'd (Prime, Ironhide, Ratchet, BB, Jazz). Deceptacons, umm...well there's Megs, Starscream, BrawlnotDevastator (via Bruticus. Not the most direct route but I'll take it).

    G1 Devastator is the most obvious choice for the next Encore (that also would cover Bonecrusher and put BrawlnotDevastator thing to rest). But let's not forget Frenzy, who would obviously be packaged with Rumble and 2 more cassettes...if we only knew the status of their molds. And who wouldn't want to see a G1 $corpinok? I mean Scorpinok

    I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with the mold for Devastator, or otherwise he would've already been reissued once or twice. Same goes for Frenzy and Rumble, sigh...

    Tak/To is giving the movie line a sole run at retail too. To me if they were able to reissue Devastator they'd do it at christmas time.
