    would have been cool if instead of stickers, all the details the stickers represented were actually printed on the toy instead.

    Can't help but wonder how many out there don't have these already (new packaging aside)

    Interesting.That looks like the old Soundwave mold, with the seperated buttons and tape deck connected on the inside.

    Indeed, I appreciate they're key characters, but I'm still surprised there's no wide release reissue of, say, Ironhide and Ratchet for instance, given they're both in the movie these are presumably attempting to cash in on, and a lot less people own reissues of them.

    Been there, done that. But I'm hoping Phazer's onto something with the Ironhide/Ratchet movie connection.

    I'm a bit disappointed that these didn't turn out to be Classics. Still its nice for those who might need reissues to get them. I have these figures covered, but hopefully they'll mass-release guys like Ratchet, Ironhide, Trailbreaker, Thrust & Ramjet.

    I'm surprised no one has metioned that these are listed as Encore 03 & Encore 04

    Make me wonder who is 01 & 02 (Prime and Megs no doubt) and could mean others are on there way.

    Well, having more reissues is always cool, but re-reissues? I'll likely take this opportunity to finally get a full, regular G1 Optimus, but it still seems kind of dumb of Takara Tomy to reissue figures that have already been reissued (or reissued a hojillion times, in Convoy's case).

    Well, at least this will save me money; I have no desire to own a 5th G1 Starscream or a 2nd Soundwave.
