    both has more cartoon-accurated coloring.
    Cliffjumper seems repaint/redeco of Universe Legends Bumblebee.

    Encore 15 Casette Daisakusen Vol.1
    http://www.e-hobby.co.jp/cgi-bin/omc?port=33301&req=PRODUCT&code=tf_encore15
    Ravage, Laserbeak, Eject, Rewind

    name "Casette Daisakusen (Big Mission)" is the title of 4th episode of The Headmasters cartoon.
    and named "Vol.1", so there's a possibility for another Casettes set at "Vol.2".

    If I am reading this right, C-25 and C-26? Weren't the Henkei Minibot sets listed as C-18 and C-19 last week? That seemed to fit with the established Henkei numbering system (C-17 being Armada Hot Shot).

    I don't quite see Warpath fitting in as a "spy".

    Eh. You'd be surprised. In the cartoons Warpath was a master of disguise and subtlety when he needed to be. Remember a certain Decepticon Dirge? Yeah, that was Warpath in his seeker-suit. And cartoon Frenzy? Also Warpath. And the dead Wheeljack in the movie? That was just Warpath pretendin' to be a dead Wheeljack so that when a Decepticreep came along and said, "Look, a dead Wheeljack," he'd leap out of his dead Wheeljack suit and be all, "KaBlowieeee!"

    I'm not seeing any pictures. If there is indeed a Cliffjumper I find it funny that they didn't repaint Classics Bumblebee as Cliffy for the Henkei line, but repainted the LOC version of BB.

    Dinocassettes would sell like hotcakes. But I wonder why RUmble and Frenzy have never been done.

    I think someone said the molds were lost in Wilfred Brimley's butt during an cocaine induced after-party for one of his Quaker Oatmeal commercials.

    That's just the links name, it has nothing to do with the Henkei number designation. See the Inferno and Ratchet pages, they are the same way.

    well, moulds that are lost could always be remade right? :) 
    I expect more exciting reissues to come for encore!
    2009 will be a good year, I'll expect somethin mega soon as sky lynx, omega supreme and metroplex have been released, ah well :)

    I'm torn.
    I already have a few reissues of Lazerbeak and Ravage, but my original Eject and Rewind, while fine are showing a bit of sticker wear.

    Interesting, might have to wait to see how the Henkei minibots turn out before I go for the legends.

    Encore Im still on the fence about as I only want half the set.
