    For Autobots there's 3 listings, one for Jetfire/Skyfire and 2 that are unnamed. There is also a listing for one Decepticon, namely Ramjet. No pics for any of them yet, but figured I'd give a heads up.

    I'm guessing Cliffjumper will be one of the unnamed bots, but who could the other be? Is there another Deluxe repaint I'm forgetting about from the Hasbro Classics line?

    Curiouser and curiouser. I'm really happy with the Hasbro Jetfire, but I am anxious to see what Takara does with him.

    It's probably Cliffjumper and Ultra Magnus.

    edit: it's deluxe price, so probably the Deluxe Optimus from the 2-pack, not Ultra Magnus.

    July release. There's a chance the autobot is sunstreaker and prowl and not cliffjumper.

    Here'a a neat thought. If one IS Cliffjumper, wouldn't it be cool if they gave him a new accurate head?


    I know it'd never happen, but hey one can dream right?:D

    Aww, a bit of a let down for the new Encore releases IMO. Continuing the larger bots is great, but Metroplex has always been pretty easy to obtain vintage, lol @ the bootleg Metroplex at this point though.

    I was hoping for something a little different I guess, time to wait until the fall/winter set of Encores...

    Anybody have any idea how long the encore line will be? I'm loving the fact that they are releasing alot of the bigger bots, Sky Lynx, Omega Supreme, Metroplex. Was Scorponok confirmed ever? Give me Trypticon and I'll be going nuts!!!
