    its been a while now since the release of encore 19 casettes, we have heard of nothing form the encore reissues. any idea of whats coming next? they seem soooo slow, compare to the china ko reissues. by the time takara releases more, the ko would have already ko pretty much everything already. so takara why so freaking slow on the encores. come on and put the out already! i would guess its these next? just my best guess.

    predaking

    Expect whatever pieces that's been reissued previously to get "re-introduced" under Encore line. ;)

    CASSETTE COMBINERS OR GTFO!!!

    Lol, seriously though, those sets were the only Encore I jumped on (Classics FTW!). I think the japanese exclusives would sell alot. Probably 100% of us who have bought a single Encore would jump on those. May be wishful thinking but thats what I want.

    I'm hoping they release Hound. The Dreamwave/TFC version is WAY too overpriced out there. I'm kinda surprised they havent released him already.

    I figure they'll do something special for #20, maybe a Combiner or Citybot. I do expect #21 to be Squalkbox & Slamdance though.

    At this point? Anything. I worry that they've just silently canceled the line, and my shelf is still missing eight cassettes...

    this. based on the poor sales of the big-sized ones (omega supreme, skylynx), maybe tak-tom is skeptical if they continue the line. here's hoping that it gets continued.

    Even if "Encore" does get cancelled, There will always be more reissues in the future. Tak-Tom knows us adult collectors will keep buying them & they will always want our money so... :)

    Me too!!

    What really bothers me is that alot of people have become accustomed to wating for clearances instead of buyig them at full prices. Also, people talk alot about what they want reissued but if/when it happens, they don't buy! Well, maybe I shouldn't say that as I have no real proof, but damn it sure does seem like it to me.


    Actually wouldn't mind having DoubleDealer reissued.

    if they reissue it again later on down the road, it might not be the g1 style boxes anymore. i really love those g1 style boxes. otherwise i could have just bought the book style ones, or the toyrus reissues. thats why the encore line is so classic for me. they got me started collecting again in hopes of getting all my favorites from the 80s cartoon show. only if they encore jetfire, i would be so happy. thats the one that got away from me in the 80s. my uncle said no way im buying that thing at the time. so i said please i want it for christmas. but no matter what i said. its NO WE ARE NOT BUYING IT! it was way too expensive. so i ended up buying 1 dinobot instead. which was still fun, but it was no jetfire.

    I'm surprised Ramjet and Thrust haven't been done in the Encore line yet and wouldn't be surprised if they were high on the list if/when it starts back up. Artfire would be another easy one as well, assuming they don't start going back and re-reissuing more items that came out in TFC.

    As far as choices that are completely wishful thinking, I'd like to see:
    - Cassette Big Mission 5 - Slamdance and Squawkbox
    - Cassette Big Mission 6 - Japanese dinosaur cassettes
    - Cyclonus and Scourge (preferably Targetmaster versions)
    - Octane

    i highly doubt tak-tom will be able to reissue jetfire. afaik, bandai owns all the rights to it as it is a macross valkyrie after all.

    if the encore line is really done and tak-tom decides to reissue G1 figures down the road, i hope they start with the other characters. i mean, how many reissue G1 prime, megs, soundwave and starscream do we need? :lol

    Hoping for a G1 Jetfire Reissue? TakaTom will have to kill Bandai to make that happen! :lol 

    Or let's wait for TakaTom to go bankrupt (again) so that Bandai can buy him over & all of us can get a Reissued Jetfire eventually. :drunk
