    With the recent news of the G2 figures for BotCon, it got me thinking...since everyone is dying to know what the next Encore is, what would your opnions be on G2 Encores? I know we have already had Laser Prime reissued, so what about the big Megatron tank? Those construction Auto-rollers? Jazz with his G2 paint scheme? Would something like this be of interest to anyone??

    I'd be down for reissues of Jazz, Sideswipe, and the Dinobots for sure.

    Eh, for Botcon it's a neat idea, however actual reissues of the G2 stuff? Nah. I would pass on them. The only ones that would be neat would be the unreleased G2 Stunticons and Protectobots.

    Nah. G2 isn't really expensive on the aftermarket. I can't see Encore G2 being very successful.

    Correct me if I am wrong but that is the SECOND Ultimate Warrior. If so, I liked the first one better.....

    The Megatron tank is all I would be interested in for a G2 encore, but it was already re-relaeased in the Beast Wars II line in Japan. Plus it's fairly cheap to pick one up, so I'm not sure if doing of G2 as encores would work.

    I'd say finish re-issuing the G1 line, then proceed with G2.

    I may be wrong. I did find his website and he clearly states that there was only one Ultimate Warrior. However, I still remember he quit and someone else used the same makeup and mask calling himself simply the warrior..
    Here is the website, because it seems only a few of us really care....

    I'd be pissed if they wasted encore slots on nasty G2 repaints.

    The unique molds that we haven't seen since might be ok.

    I'd be up for it.

    I loved the G2 repaints. ALL of them. colorful dinobots, black sideswipe, funky lookin' jazz, chrome minibots, and G2 bruticus and superion are my favorite versions of the molds. except for the whole slingshot shattering thing. and I vastly prefer yellow devastator to green.

    There were 2 Andrew W.K.'s apparently... Also, I think G2 reissues would be neat, but I'd MUCH rather they reissue G1 figures that haven't had the reissue treatment yet and are still viable.
