    Given the number of times in recent years that the Combaticons mold has been used, we know it's still around. Why did we get all those weird repaints when just once, we could've gotten a reissue in G1 colors? Do you think Takara/Tomy might release it now in the encore line?

    It would make sense. I'd love to see it as it would save me from hunting down Vortex to finish off my original.

    I would love to get a cartoon accurate version or a diaclone version.

    I hope not, I like my RiD version just fine and would rather see some new molds then recycling ones that have already been done.

    I certainly think Takara might do Bruticus. King Poseideon as well.

    would be nice, hopefully takara could tidy up the mould a little bit. i got teh snow camo set and it is a bit scruffy looking but generally fits together well. Its one of those toys thats perhaps a bit underrated but is a lot of fun, esp with each bot having 3 modes, 4 for onslaught. maybe the first time TF used ball joints too?? (copter and shuttle bots).

    edit, also the bruticus scheme with the stickers is perhaps the best looking version too.

    King Posideon IS Piranacon, that was his name in the Masterforce cartoon and toyline. :p

    Shhhhh! If we ask about this, Hasbro will mysteriously "loose the mold".


    However, yeah. This seems like an obvious reissue to me. I would like to have it in the G1 boxset packaging. Hopefully Takara will do it for an Encore release.

    ah, i didnt know that! king poseidon is perhaps a cooler name anyway.

    with all the current TF interest (well im assuming its the same in japan) i hope that takara have some long term plans for the encore line.

    I would love the idea, but would like to see Devastator first.

    G1 Bruticus for the 25th Aniv. Line seems plausible. I don't own one so I'd like that to happen.

    I was thinking about this this morning. It should be an easy lay up. I'd def buy 2 reissues.

    As for the 8th release, we don't need anymore G1 Primes either, but oh well.

    Eh, if I had my choice I'd rather them repaint the Energon mold (which it looks like they could be doing). Though if they did reissue G1 Bruticus, I would at least seriously think about getting it, if not actually getting it. Would be nice to display next to my RID Ruination.

    I thought Bruticus was one of the few G1 combiners that WASN'T released as a gift set?? Only individuals.

    I REALLY need to get around to picking up the desert and urban camo decos of Bruticus. So much cooler than the originals.
