    MP Fire Convoy and God Magnus would be more exciting.

    I wonder, since the Encore Line now includes CarRobots/RID2000, if Takara would do a complete Brave Maximus with Cog/gasket/Grommet, the Master Sword, & all the Fort Max weapons? I sure hope so!

    That'd be awesome. though Id much rather see an Encore Grand Max over a Brave, considering Brave max is still semi affordable 2nd hand.

    I kinda want this set but not that price. I already have the Costco set from Cybertron which I still treasure (one of the best gifts I ever got and one I never expected) this boxed set looks really nice (and they included the spear which sweetens the deal). Apparently I might go to Japan soon so perhaps I'll pick it up there.

    What I heard about those parts that are no longer chromed is that they are now covered with metallic paint like the Animated figures from Takara. In my opinion, this is much better and closer to the original animation model then the chrome. Also no chrome can start to flake on those larger areas and make the figures look ugly (or at least no longer that good looking).

    Yeah. I think that would be obvious from my post.

    Considering that the original set that came with the sword can go for 1000 bucks, this new set price does not sound bad for me.

    Yeah. The Movie The Best Grimlock and Strafe have retooled backs to accommodate their new accessories, Optimus and Bumblebee respectvely, so that they can ride them.

    I think you misread my post. It's the Movie The Best line that has the retools, not the Studio Series.

    Probably not since the original toy didn't include all the extras and I don't recall Brave using any of that extra stuff in the cartoon.

    Plus the Encore Fort Max sold poorly, so there's that. And actually I think there's a better chance now of the new Fort Max mold getting a limited run as Brave like they're doing for Grand Max.
