No solicitation information available.
And anybody that does know for sure, is probably not in a position to answer.
Also....Sixshot isn't *actually* part of the Encore series.
So, this is another speculation thread?
I want Protectobots and Aerialbots, then my Metroplex base mode will be complete. And I would like more minibots to populate this city.
Yep as been said sixshot isn't an encore and is just more of a stand alone premium re-issue.
Not currently known what's next in encore line but I'm hoping for something we haven't had before so far
1st of all,is Sixshot in the Encore series which i don't think so.
I'll take a Trypticon as well. But then won't we all.
I thought the future of Encore was determined by the success of TwinCast & Soundblaster sales?? How well were they received? I hope good enough to ensure more releases in the future!
Nothing since sixshot isn't encore as far as anybody knows.
One possible reading is that with a 30th anniversary not that far off, TT are wondering if they can stick people for a little more cash by throwing in some flashy packaging, more chrome and random metallic paint.
Given the fairly lukewarm response to Sixshot (?)...and that TT have already reissued a good chunk of the 'old reliables' to the point many of us are rolling our eyes...i kind of doubt how far that's going to get them....but rather than realise they may expect too much, they may instead shrug their shoulders and give up on G1 reissues again.
The above scenario sounds fairly ridiculous, but Takara have been faffing about with reissues for the last decade, w/o any real apparent direction.
They're not going to release a new Masterpice every month. Is releasing an Encore or two in the months between those Masterpiece releases unworkable?
Another possible reading, and it may not necessarily be in isolation from the above paragraph, is that Sixshot was (also) reissued as a protest against Hexatron.
