I'd buy a Scorponok reissue. Too bad the original was so damn small to Fortress Maximus.

Not that I have any insight into Takara's thought processes, but it looks to me like they're releasing Encores based on the Japanese cartoon lines (Headmasters with Soundblaster, Twincast, FM, possibly Scorp), and possibly Masterforce (GM? BZ?). So I would guess that Headmaster and Godmaster toys will be coming down the pipeline, especially with Shout Factory's recent releases of HM, Masterforce, and Victory DVDs with new subs.

Said it before, saying it again: Metrotitan encore or GTFO. Seriously, if they want instant sells, they need to hit the hard to find stuff. I should take a poll to show how many people here would buy a reissue blue Bluestreak, if not some of the harder to find ones. Also a yellow Trailbreaker would be nice as well...

hard to come by toys dont always = much money.

Star Convoy, Stepper to name a few.

Ppl are quik to say I want this and that but then when it comes it is always the same thing, I wait on clearenc or how can it cost so much damn you TT.

It is the ppl who wants the hard to comy by stuff but dont want to pay for it that usually cries the hardest with posts and wants from TT and hopefully get them reissued.

On the scorpy issuee, sure good for ppl who dont own one..I have a boxed one and with the current price some of them go for these days I understand some ppl want a reissue.
Oz - one of the greatest shows made. To all those actors that made that show possible. Thx

Very good points, almost forgot about those guys. Hell, Trailbreaker would be a good example to counter my point.


At this stage, I'd just get whatever reissues they want to put out, unless I got it already. No preference here.







































Except blue Bluestreak Encore, Generations, AND Legion class.

Well to be honest, I'd love a Metrotitan reissue, but I just like the color scheme.

I think Takara is taking a pretty big risk with Fort Max - Stepper and Star Convoy were neither anywhere near as pricey as Fort Max, so while Fort Max is much better known than either of those, it's price point still leaves a lot of people thinking "I'd love that, but I can't justify that kind of money for a toy" - but to be honest, those kind of people probably don't buy Japanese reissues to begin with.

It really depends on how well Fort Max will sell. If he sells really well, then we can probably expect future reissues for a lot of the other big bots like Scorponok and Overlord - if his sales numbers only match their expectations, then I reckon we might at least get Victory Saber in the future, considering the Japanese love of Autobots (and the several Star Saber homages they've made lately). If he sells badly...well, this whole discussion will be rendered moot.

Yes it should even though I have 1 that is almost complete. I think it should be cause he is the bad guy to Fort Max.

Yes, yes, and fucking yes. I am praying and hoping the rumors of Scorponok being next are indeed true.

I have a complete vintage G1 Scorponok in great condition, so I can't see buying a reissue myself, but it's a really cool figure and I hope they do reissue it so everyone who wants one can have an easier way to acquire it.
