    Encore 17 is Cassette Big Mission Volume 2, with Steeljaw, Ramhorn, Ratbat, and...Slugfest!

    Also, first look at ALL MP-08 Grimlock accessories!

    Update: Thanks to Type-R, we've got larger images form the source. Larger versions of the pics plus Henkei Minibots, Dinobot, Hot Shot, Inferno, Ratchet, Smokescreen and Red Alert are actually from Hobbystock.

    Wait...they kept the serving tray, added an apron, and ditched the crown? PLEASE tell me I'm missing the crown somewhere.

    And glad Ratbat and Slugfest are getting reissued. I already have them, but about time they got reissues :)

    MP Grimlock - Love it. Must have IMO.
    Encore 17 - Slugfest! Nice. Pity there's no Overkill to go with him, but still very tempting indeed. Especially with Ratbat.
    Chrono label - uninspired, unimaginative transformation; massively overpriced. Easy pass.
    MM - Oh GOD, I wish I didn't really like this thing.

    Ha! Take that all you moaners saying TakTom didn't have any other cassette moulds left! Ramhorn! Slugfest! Ratbat!!

    And I just noticed Laserbeak is now listed as Buzzsaw. Hope that's accurate as we've already had Laserbeak in the Encore line (with Soundwave). Amazing news if true!

    Encore RULES ALL!!!

    Why why why why why must he cost $150... I still haven't rationalized MP Megs, how can I buy this? Is the whole thing diecast or something?

    ..and what's that on his tray? Looks like a water bong...!

    Ratbat is a big winner. I really hope E-Hobby gives us more repaints of these newly available molds!

    Sweet. Even nthough I have 3 of 4 of the new cassette set, it's very tempting to get a complete Ratbat and Slugfest!

    I swear, it's like they're reading my mind. I start looking for Bruticus and he is coming out. I want to complete my cassette collection and they are coming out.

    If I didn't know better, I'd start looking for Sunstreaker and Wheeljack...

    Now I can finally get rid of my cassette KOs...keep 'em coming Takara!
