    Has anyone heard if the Henkei line will continue after ROTF is done? I've heard some say that Smokescreen was that last one and that it's finished. I'm really hoping that's not the case! We never got Jazz or Wheeljack (just to name a few)!

    Has anyone heard anything concrete???

    Thanks!

    Hasbro mentioned they might/are planning to continue Universe after Revenge of the Fallen next year, but only the deluxe scale was mentioned.

    Takara would possibly go off of that.

    Hasbro will most likely re-launch Universe after ROTF, with at least deluxe molds I believe they said at Botcon.

    So when new molds are made, I would think Henkei might re-launch too.

    In the meantime Hasbro will still have a sprinkle of Universe items, but only repaints.

    I'd say so long as Universe is in play again eventually, so will be the Henkei items.

    I really hope TAKARA creates their own molds (if they are going to continue with HENKEI.) Like an Ultra class Star Convoy and Star Saber.

    Henkei is on at least a hiatius until Universe comes back next year in the fall (in at least the deluxe class). we won't get wheeljack and jazz until the universe line returns, that is, if they make a new jazz and wheeljack (which hasbro has hinted that they are planning a new wheeljack)

    Wait, so Universe 3.0 might be downscaled to only deluxes? And the rumored Voyager Rhinox and Voyager Soundwave might be downscaled and end up with useless vestigial features and parts and generally be more sucky than they otherwise would have?

    Bah, humbug.

    no no no. Hasbro said Universe will return in the fall of 2010 at least in the deluxe sense......and Soundwave wasn't to be a voyager, a deluxe, only rhinox was the Voyager.....they never said the voyager price point wouldn't be returning, but right now the only part of universe that has a definate release date is the deluxes, fall 2010

    Oh, I Believe there might be voyagers too, because didn't they say they wanted to do a voyager Rhinox?

    I'm sure whenever the new classics/universe line comes out, Henkei will continue as well. At least I sure hope so!! I ended up replacing most of my classics with Henkeis, and usually didn't bother with the universe stuff.... just waited for the Henkei versions.

    I am not sure if you are calling it a good idea or a bad idea. :sly2:
