Is this a hint at the next Encore?

    Maybe, I don't know. But, i think it's silly that they haven't cashed in on these molds yet.

    In the past, they released ironhide and ratchet together, then trailbreaker and hoist....

    So, if they do these two, chances are that we are going to be seeing Grapple and Sideswipe.

    I don't know why they haven't done The Prowl, Smokescreen, bluestreak/silverstreak mold yet either...

    Easy money. Repaints...

    I could really use a new inferno. Wonder if it will have yellow eyes like the original.

    Encore trailbreaker had blue visor eyes, while the original has a red visor.

    And the hasbro reissue has blue inferno eyes. Maybe their just going with the established theme now that Autobot optic sensors glow blue while the decepticons glow red.

    Anybody recall what the picture there was before, or has it always been Inferno/Red Alert?

    I picked up all the Encores up to #18 (with #19 next on my to-get list), even that giant box o' fail known as Encore Bruticus. And even though I recently nabbed the Hasbro re-issues of Inferno + RA, I'd very much like to see the line continue.

    QFTx10!! I still need Sideswipe & Prowl and don't intend on paying for the over-priced TFCs

    Man, I really wish they would re-issue Sixshot again.

    I'm willing to bet my hard-earned that Inferno/Red Alert will be getting the Encore treatment. TakaraTomy wouldn't put their artwork on that page for no reason... :lol

    That picture has always been there. So, it's definitely not a sign. There was also speculation that the characters being added to the profile would be Encore'd. I remember someone posted that Scorponok would get the Encore treatment based on his character profile being added to the site. Nothing came of it.

    Funny thing is that Takara's webmaster still hasn't changed the misspelling of "Conboy".

    That's what I wanted to know....dayum TT, give a dog a bone already...

    Tell us who's next, or IF there even is a next. I don't really care if you plan on a release next week, next month or even next year, just let us know who it is!!

    If Red Alert is done, he needs to be done with his red head.

    These are the two I'm hoping for the most.

    My Hasbro reissue of Red Alert had his arm break off as I transformed it for the first time, so I'd be an Encore Red Alert...and if it had a red head, that would be a nice bonus!

    Ooooh, G! Encore Inferno will go nicely with Universe/Classics 2.0 Inferno... :) 

    Sure with Takara would make us wet our trousers by surprising us with Encore Sunstreaker and Mirage. KO companies did it, Takara can do it even better. Demand is high enough for those two, they will profit from it despite the expense. Worst case scenario is I would settle for a yellow repaint of Sideswipe as substitute Sunstreaker.

    Seems likely, though they were already reissued by Hasbro so it's not exactly something new.
