    It's possible I suppose, if the molds are still in good condition.

    A limited number of Targetmasters have been reissued (Hot Rod, Kup, Stepper), just none of the dedicated Targetmaster molds.

    Would not be surprised to see some Headmasters soon.

    Rumour is a heavy push on Encore. Names like Scorponok and Fort Max were thrown out so I can see Head Master and Target Masters being released as well.

    Ditto. If they're willing to release the two biggest Headmasters, as has been hinted, the other "normal" sized ones could also be on the table even if they don't carry quite the same name recognition.

    I still really wish they'd included Blurr, Cyclonus and Scourge in the Collection series with the same remolding done to Hot Rod and Kup that they could hold their original weapons and their Targetmasters. I hope, IF those are ever reissued, that the same thought goes into reissuing them down the road instead of doing them just straight one way rather than including both sets of weapons.

    Rumors around Scorponok and Fort Max seem to be accelerating.

    Takara staff specifically stated some intent to reissue FM.

    Smaller toys...was told some tooling missing, but if TT think its viable, theyll replace it.

    I think Masters and Pretenders will get revisited eventually.

    In my opinion it is the next logical step after the focus on G1/game in the generations line as well. But HasTak and I have never seen eye to eye when it comes to logic.
    I'm very interested in encore head/targetmasters. And VERY interested in seeing 3rd party groups take on this huge cast of characters.

    I think we'll see the 7th reissue of Inferno and Skids before that.

    I just hope they get to it before I become a frail old man.
