    Hoepfully not for a long while!

    I am in love with the encores! I have been lurking on these boards for the last month or so since i have no interest in animated.

    Seeing encore Obama Supreme being released in time for elections this year has made me excited.

    I hope sales are good in Japan and for imports to bc i love the line and hope they keep moving through g1 items. There is just something about the vintage looking boxes and the japanese writing that makes the items even more Intriguing to me!

    Really excited about the seekers and metroplex later this summer/fall and the minis will be cool aswell!

    Im really hoping for encore wheel jack (or a bunch of the small cars) and jetfire. To be honest, as long as the keep the quality to what it has been i would continue to buy the entire line even for a tf who i may not like that much...

    Im just so happy i can talk about something besides animated!

    Lastyl, i have to plug board member edbomber. He has been great about providing me these items here in the US.

    Cant wait for Obama err Omega...

    Well, Trypticon feels he is the best one to race and has been running for 30 years in the shadow of Octane, and he feels it's his turn and this race is just a formality before his inevitable coronation. He has bad breath.

    Sky Lynx feels he's going to win because he is a cocky, high-ranked Autobot with high name recognition and was a Decepticon POW back in the previous war. But he's not as popular as he thinks he is.

    Omega has a strong, confident voice and is well-liked, but he can only go in circles in vehicle mode. He's best at defense and not well suited for offensive attack. His face lights up.

    Encore is a great line I gald I went back and bought the rest. It's shaping up to be the best re-issue line so far ... wonder what/who they have in store for the 25th Anniversary ?

    Dino's and jetfire would be my guess...

    Especially with the crackdown on KO's

    If hasbro is going to produce these then great... if not, let the KO's be!

    I hope they dont go over the top with 25th packaging... I like how vintage things look now!

    ^^ This.

    I hope it goes on for a good long while too. I'd love to see, at the least, Trypticon, Scorponok, Thrust, and Ramjet. A Fort Max reissue for the 25th Anniversary would rock, as well, and be a fitting tribute. And like Split Lip said, Octane (and heck, the Autobot triplechangers as well) would be quite welcome.

    And hey, if they want to reissue all the Headmasters and Powermasters and Cassettes..... I sure won't complain. :)
