    Rione - Lione aka Sawback ?

    There'd been some speculation the Jumpstarters might come with the remaining 2 Autobot Targetmasters Spoilsport & Peacemaker

    Man, Takara are really going all-out with Targetmasters, even for characters like Topspin and Twin Twist. o_O

    Good. This is exactly what I was hoping; we don't need an update of God Fire Convoy, just a rerelease.

    ... though admittedly I still think a Combiner Wars version with a remold of Outback was X-Brawn, Prowl as Prowl, etc. would be fun. Wouldn't replace the original, but it'd be a fun aside.

    Does that clear out all the new TR molds from Hasbro in the LG series? There are a few unlikely remolds I guess they haven't used (Sky Shadow, voyager OP&Megs, various titanmasters), but that's all, right?

    Interesting seeing the "Encore" banner applied to a RID/Car Robots toy. Still, I imagine it's welcome for those who got into TF in the later 2000s and missed out . (or missed out on Fire Convoy for any reason)

    Fire Convoy reissue has my attention.
    Already got all those TR figures. I hope with a full set of Targetmasters made that Hasbro can find someway to release them.

    well, Takara is using the Megatron noggin for the upcoming g2 Mgeatron, and they used the Optimus tooling of Octane for Black Convoy. so yeah, as of Seaspray coming with Rione, and the Jumpstarters coming out, yeah, that'll be all of the Unique TR toolings, outside of Black Shadow.

    God Fire Convoy is a fantastic toy. I'm happy for more fans to have an opportunity to get one!

    Wow, so Encore isn't dead!
    Wonder if this might lead to an eventual Encore Brave Max. I believe the last Encore release before this was Fort Max, no?

    Shoot, I might have to get that Fire Convoy rerelease. RID Optimus Prime was the first Optimus figure I ever had.

    Yeah, I was thinking of those guys in those colors, but you're right - Megs and OP are being used (I have one and pre-ordered the other - total brain fart).

    Sigh, I really don't wanna double dip on the Jumpstarters. But those Targetmasters!

    I just started rebuilding my RID collection with a lot of the Takara releases of the Autobot Brothers.

    Omega Prime was one of my faves as a kid so this reissue is just what I needed :D

    This is the BEST news of all this year for me. Had to sell my RID toys a long time ago in a very difficult year and I was missing Takara Fire Convoy.

    I hope it comes with the Master Sword, but I am sure he will have some new phrases. On the last Figure Oh Magazine, Hashimoto Satoshi...Fire Convoy's voice actor appeared on the last page "working something for Transformers"

    RID FOREVER! :bowdown: :rock :music :drunk :drool: :thumb

    Um, a non-G1 encore from my childhood? Hell yes. I already have Optimus but I'm still missing Ultra Magnus, so sure, count me in on this.

    With all the Deluxe molds accounted for, it doesn't look good for him. :/

    God Fire Convoy?

    if so, i'm impressed. Mostly because I thought the RID-era molds were dead. Didn't Hasbro wipe out the Autobot Brothers?
