    Got the solicitation that Henkei Hound and Ravage are due for their reissue in June 2010

    Shameless plug but the pre-order is available from us already :)

    Yeah, no joke. I'm still holding out hope for a Hasbro release. The generations line is bringing back the possibility.

    MAN!

    Bought Hound for £40 a few months back.

    Now I am totally unsure what to do about Henkei Red Alert.

    Generations Thrust will save me lots of money though.

    wow.... Seems kind of odd they would reissue Henkei Hound already. Well, i'm not upset because I got it cheap awhile ago. glad to see its back! Should lower the price and help others pick him up.

    This is good news. I've owned (and sold it) before, and it's a good toy. I don't personally believe it's so incredibly better than the Universe version as some people say, but it is certainly the superior paint job.

    I wonder is the Henkei Hound is better than the Hasbro TF Universe version that came out last year?

    Isn't this the Hasbro HK release? I seem to remember that original solicit referenced Henkei Prime and the Sixshot and Predaking reissues.

    In most people's opinion, yes. It is a darker green, more striping/detail, and the wheels are painted grey (I beleive). This is great news, I was a little late to the Henkei game, and these things are like crack. Hopefully BBTS has it up soon so I can Loot it up.

    That was the rumor, from a pretty good source. If the rest do happen, this is going to be one pricey year. Atleast there is not a lot left at retail that I want for now. Thank got Generations is only deluxes, because by the time they come out, that is all I may be able to afford.

    Sweet. My brother's birthday is in June. Maybe I'll preorder the Henkei Hound for him, since he doesn't have neither the Henkei or Universe Hound figure yet.

    Hopefully they'll also reissue Cyclonus, Ratchet, and Red Alert; I still need to get those 3.

    With Encore not on Takara's priority list, we can fairly sure that some other things are going to be re-reissued.

    ...another run of Soundblaster for instance :-?

    We've had info on Henkei Cyclonus but no release date yet, I would mind another run of Twincast and Flipside, the price on that at the mo is crazy and I just cant justify it.

    Great news. Hopefully the pre order doesn't sell out anytime soon because I gotta save some money up.

    FansProject Defender and the TFCC P/CP set me back a little.
