    I was wondering if anyone knew if the encore reissue line is finished. Their hasn't been any news about any new reissues since cassette 2 set.
    Also, has rumble and frenzy ever been reissued?

    Thank you all,
    David

    Actually, the Bruticus set is before the second cassettes package. But again, sometimes there are delays in the news of future releases. People were worrying about the line yet again just a few releases ago.

    Start worrying when we havn't heard anything yet and the last known product released was a month ago. :)

    Yeah, that's how TFC ended after Blaster, and Galaxy Force missing some molds from the end of Cybertron. But I assumed that had to do with the Takara-Tomy merger, and both lines being on corporate hiatus for a time.

    We have Device Label debuting along with the next Encores in a couple of months. Alternity repaints too. The movie line might make Encore and other lines take a break for a couple of months.

    I dont think encore will take a break for the movie line. we'll probably see a devastator reissue, along with some of the first encores getting released again due to the movie creating demand for the classic characters again. after all, when encore debuted, they focused on characters that would be appearing in the first movie (except soundwave).

    He's talking about the Transformers Collector's Club exclusive repaint of the Seacons. It was called Piranacon.

    Even if the Encore line does wrap up after the Bruticus giftset, It doesn't necessarily mean that TakaraTomy will cease doing reissues altogether. A few years ago, Takara reissued Sixshot, Predaking etc. separately to their "book-box"-style packaging at the time. Sixshot, Predaking etc. were just regular reissues. :) 

    So, even if the Encore line does come to an end after the Bruticus giftset, don't lose sleep over further reissues in the future underneath a different line. :wink:

    I like Encore better than TFC or other reissue lines because Encore brought Sky Lynx and Omega Supreme. Encore started two years ago before Movie 1 so I hope it will continue as the Movie progress.

    They had Scorpinok listed on the Encore page. Are they going to reissue him?

    Honestly, I'd like to see them go out with a bang and reissue anything Generation One that they have the mold for buy have yet to reissue.

    Like Fort Max. I'd buy that. Price doesn't matter. It'd Goddamn Fort Max.

    The simple answer is to do what Mattel does with their Collector-oriented merchandise.

    MADE TO ORDER.


    If you want one, you gotta put in an order for them to get an idea of production numbers.

    If you decide you don't want it, then there's a hefty cancellation fee so they have little losses.

    Encore isn't over, but yes a hiatus of some sort may be possible if Takara concentrates on movie figures (like how Henkei's likely on hiatus, despite the fact they could easily do a couple repaints like Sunstorm, Grapple or Swindle or even release that Nemesis Prime that never did get a release). How many molds/characters they can do that we haven't seen yet is something I'm interested to find out. Plus they can always re-reissue characters we've yet to see in the Encore line (Blaster, Insecticons, Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen, Dirge, Ultra Magnus).

    I hope they don't stop with the Encore line after Bruticus. I recently bought Encore Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Henkei Ramjet, Thrust and Dirge.

    I am planning to get some more. But have they ever made a Reissue Shockwave? All I see is only G1 originals and they are expensive.

    Sixshto was before the TFC book case, He came out alognside UM, Prime, Meg, Hot Rod, Rodimus with the 15th or 20th ananversary, if not mistaken.

    The Predaking was a NY special also that came out around christmas buring the TFC.

    I say they will use some mold that they have used before in the next encore..
