    I figure since the last encore set comes out soon and we have had no new announcements that this is the end of our beloved reissue encore line. I haven't felt this sad since the tf collection ended.

    Just because there hasn't been any new announcements concerning new Encore releases for the year to come doesn't mean that it's the end of the line for good.

    I would have to disagree about the Encore line ending. When the cassette missions were first announced it was said that there would be 4 volumes. The one with Rumble and Frenzy is only volume 3. And we know that TT still has other molds that can be given the encore treatment if TT wanted to like Thrust, Ramjet, Dirge, Hot Rod, Astrotrain, Blitzwing etc. Now I know most of these were released not too long ago but Thrust & Ramjet are particularly good options given that the last release for those two was back in 2000 or 2001 through E-Hobby.

    I didn't know about 4 volumes, but I def. agree with the rest of this!

    I really want Thrust & Ramjet before they quit!

    Takara hasn't announced any new sets, but that doesn't mean there won't be more. There have been times in the past were the latest Encore figure was released and we hadn't heard anything more from the line for a while before the next figure was announced. I remember people thinking as much when the first 4 figures came out, and then again half way through.

    No where was it ever stated though that there would be 4 Cassette sets, that's just wishful thinking on people's parts. Sure it's probably likely (I know I want them to do another), but Takara never said as much.

    Is is that time of the week already?


    The next Encore toy is Menasor.


    The heads of the smaller team members will be made of putty.


    Takara don't care because retailers will order them anyway.

    But yeah, Hasbro would probably tell us if Encore was ending.

    Why would Hasbro tell us if Encore was ending?

    I doubt Encore is ending and even if it was, that doesn't mean the end. After all we went from Commerative to Re-issue to Encore as memory serves in Japan.
