    I don't know about you but I have loved the nostalgia of the Encore series. I get to relieve childhood moments with shiny brand new G1 toys, that look far better than many of my original figures. I've been sad that they have moved slowly with this series. And in fact, the series looked like it was dead until God Fire and God Bomber were released.

    If I had my way, I would love to see the following figures get the Encore treatment. How about you?

    Superion Giftset
    Menasor Giftset
    Defensor Giftset
    Dinobots!

    I'd love to see more G1 Encore but I don't see people willing to spend what they used to cost, let alone the inflated price that they slapped on the recent Car Robots release.

    Wheeljack and Mirage would be a the top of my list if they did more though. I would also rebuy Hound and Sideswipe to have a G1-styled box.

    My G1 collection went as far as I could take it years ago. The only G1 TFs I need are Wheeljack, Sunstreaker, Mirage and the Dinobots. We will never see encore releases of these figures but if they did I would be first in line!

    I'd love to see an encore snapdragon,ape face,computron gift set,mirage,menasor, dinobots g1 issue. Plus a reissue of the tapes and the little guys. Now on the BIG guy front I'd say scorponoks easily that figure. My list could go on but if asked what ever else I'd come up with a list very easily.

    Would love to see some of the Japanese G1 exclusive characters from Masterforce and Victory.

    Beast Wars Transmetal Megatron that doesn't immediately fall apart. I feel like that would be more suited for the Platinum line though.

    If they would commit to release every G1 bot, I would commit to them, even to the point of dropping the MP line in favor of the G1.

    I could not agree more. Scorponok and Metroplex sense we got Trypticon already. The G1 Metroplx needs a re-release sense we got Tryptie.

    It's definitely something I've been keeping my eye on, but it usually goes for a bit more than I'm willing to pay...

    I admire your dedication, Rodimusconvoy! I’m not far behind you there but I bought nearly every G1 reissue last time around so I don’t know if I’d commit to buying those particular ones all over again. :D 

    There really is something special about G1 figures that can’t be compared to the modern stuff (which is great for very different reasons). A shelf full of Autobot cars and Seeker jets will ALWAYS be magical to me. Megatron and Optimus, goofy or not, will always be iconic. Devastator is laughably small compared to the 2015 version but it has so much presence and it looks so amazing, especially for a guy who was in awe of that team 33 damn years ago. I’ll never get sick of these guys.

    I gave up on the hope of more Encore G1s/G1.5s/G2s awhile back. The God Fire Convoy set was a nice random surprise (though apparently the finished product left something to be desired?), but I'm not going to get suckered into hoping for more by one random release.
