    ...given the reputation that reissue hasbro and tfc takara havent gone past certain figs. encore looks the most promising, with some interesting ehobby's up for speculation. this will be interesting to see how far they really go.

    Hopefully as long as there aren't alot of KO's made Takara will go alot further than the others toy lines.

    I think they will go long ,and it will be great if they make encore versons of all the KO versons to shut them down.

    Encore Unicron? (no. please.)
    honestly, if they would go to G2 and stop- and i don't mean an encore of EVERY SINGLE TF- but a decent percentage of em, that would be okays with me.

    I just hope they fill in some missing gaps in the 84-86 lines such as Trailbreaker, Thrust, etc. It's all I am asking for. Nothing too outrageous!

    The day they do Encore Fort Max will be the day right after they announce a Masterpiece edition of the same figure. It will be eight feet tall and include a real three year old boy as a Headmaster.

    I think it may go pretty far. I like that we are getting figs like skylynx, metroplex, and omega supreme, as it shows we arent just getting the same mold reissues every few years.

    A real three year old boy? Well you know MP Fort Max'd sell out in Thailand then. (oh snap!)

    Also (on topic), I want a few more encores of G1 cars so I hope it goes for a bit. I'd love a Blaster too.

    be nice if they did more of the ones that havent already been released through TFC and TRU. like some said thrust, devastator be nice or a trypticon. overlord would be the shit like noise said but I dont think that would ever happen unfort.

    it has a promise to go long I think since the packaging is pretty much dead on from the originals, just depends on the demand and the choices, if they keep doing ones already released then probably not.

    Word. Trailbreaker, Shockwave, Scorponok, Fort Max, and maybe some of the other Japanese figs would be real nice. I'm liking how it's looking so far though. Dreadwind/Darkwing would be SWEET as well.

    Encore will go as long and as far as Tomykara thinks will be profitable. Where that limit is, I have no idea. I'm just happy they're moving beyond Op/Megs/Starscream/Soundwave/Meister.

    I think a Fort Max is very possible. They still have the mold. I would like to see more base bots and a thrust. That would be neat.

    Shockwave would be great. Plus a few of the Japanese exclusives like Overlord or Liokaiser. More than likely I think Blurr or Springer will be reissued soon

    My guess is they will re-release Tryption and Fort Max. It would be nice if the combiners where re-release. If that was the case I bet Bruticus would be the first one.

    All I need is Ramjet and Trailbreaker and I'll be happy... Though if they manage to produce one of the "missing or damaged" molds like Sunstreaker or Wheeljack then I'll bite (unless I end up opting for a KO first as I did with Mirage).
