    I have just began collecting these...

    I have seen and read that "smokescreen" is the last figure.
    I have searched back a month, and tried googeling any available information about 'henkei canceled", smokescreen last figure, upcoming henkei 2010/2011
    I can't seem to find any info...

    is this line really over? was it renamed or something?

    let me know :) 


    Thanks :D

    There weren't any new sculpts for them to use for a while.

    They're currently busy with Animated and Autobot Alliance (Hunt for the Decepticons' Japanese counterpart), a third "main" line is possibly overkill. They will likely resume with the Generations sculpts once Japanese Animated is over.

    oic, I will try posting there also...

    I know absolutely nothing about TFs

    I know I want the G1 Type characters, and 80% of them dont really appeal to me... I collect 80's type stuff and the g1's are to crazy boxy retro.. lol

    but i love the classics and new henkei :D

    There's nothing new currently planned, but with all the Classics toys Hasbro has coming up for Generations, it's a sure thing that Takara will release them too down the road.

    I would guess they will release the Jazz, Tracks, etc... when they come out, but the new generations figures we're getting (Dirge, Thrust, Red Alert...) they've already released, so I would guess Henkei is done

    More than likely, TT is waiting for a bunch of them to be available before they start anything..

    I can't wait to see Henkei's take on Drift. I sort of hope that, on his doors, he has a giant gaudy printing of the word "samurai"..... in English. :p

    If you count HftD Seaspray as a CHUG figure, one could argue we're already getting a "Henkei" version with more accurate blue/yellow paint scheme.

    There were no new Henkei because where were no new CHUG molds. Now that we are getting the likes of Drift, Jazz, Tracks, etc, we're bound to get Takara-repainted versions. Just have patience.

    Not a new mold, but Dark Skyfire was the most recent Henkei figure.

    If it comes back, it'll probably be after the whole 2010 campaign is over...

    perhaps takara will re-name the line something else.

    I highly doubt takara will miss the golden opportunity to sell those generations new mold deluxes.

    perhaps takara is taking a short break. then they'll resume the henkei toy line.

    Personally I'd hate it if takara cancelled the henkei name & started calling the line something else.

    Would it really matter? Classics, Universe, Generations, all fall under the same umbrella, if they ditched "Henkei" what ever the replacement is called, would be seen as much the same thing anyway.

    I much prefer Encore over re-issues.
