    I just saw the pictures for the Transformers Encore line in their packaging and they all look superb. I just recently started collecting Transformers, so I missed out on a lot of the reissue editions, so this line will be right up my alley.

    Since the first four releases in this line are arguably the four biggest names, it appears that TakaraTomy will be releasing only the iconic characters. So, I was wondering who you think will be released? And who you would like to see released?

    I hope the minibots set is re-released with the resculpted Bumblebee head. I would also like to see the insecticons released as well since the box set goes for so much money on ebay.

    I would like to see the rest of the mini-tapes and the Dinobots but knowing how TakaraTomy work these days...I doubt it, at the most we will be seeing molds that were reissued. For example, the insections but don't hold your breath waitibg for them though...

    I suspect Jazz and/or Prowl. I'd be thrilled for Ironhide/Ratchet, but I don't know if the molds still exist.

    The Dinobot molds are gone. No more Dinobots.

    WHAT?!? Boo !! I want me some dinobots.

    As for what will be release, they'll reissue the reissues that have sold well. You can bank on Jazz, Prowl, Sideswipe, Hot Rodimus being released. And me thinks that Ultra Magnus will be reissued again, he hasn't been done in awhile.

    I believe someone other than Takara owned the rights to that mold, so unfortunately the original Shockwave can not be reissued.

    botcon. hasbro said flat out that they cant find them.

    I imagine we'll get stuff that was neglected in the TFC line, but was still reissued earlier, like trailbreaker, ratchet, ironhide, and the other seekers.

    Hasbro also lost the Ironhide/Ratchet mold which we all know Takara still has because of the e-Hobby reissue. Hopefully Takara still has their Dinobot molds as well.

    its possible the molds were lost after that reissue, and maybe explains why they didnt show up in TFC despite being very popular characters.

    really bad news about the dinobots. They had the molds for G2 and later for the European reissues. They even released wheeljack and sunstreaker for that line. Makes me wonder if they were lost/stolen during that time. I bet the casts for those molds will be worth mucho denero one day.
