if you had a choice for encore 24 character who would it be

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

He looks good on a shelf standing up, that's about it. No articulation whatsoever. He is overrated.

I'm just sayin'. Considering the prices, Overlord is a POS, unless you just want him to look good on a shelf in the same position. Now, if we would get an updated version, like Xovergen did with Ginrai, it would be awesome.

If I was the one choosing, it'd be Big Powered, because those guys are just darn cool.

What will most likely happen is Scorponok.

Even thought it looks like a 3rd party MIGHT be doing it, I would desperately love a Minerva/ Minelba reissue. Rare era, and a female toy to boot, just seems like one of those really really scarce items.

I'd like the Protectobot team back. I had this as a child and I loved it. Unfortunately, I had a ****** moment at gave it away. I dont want to pay 200$ for it.

Make it a BBTS exclusive and produce too many units like you did with the Seacons so I can have them cheap!

Maybe Big Powered isn't that crazy. Consider the oddballs that have recently appeared in the Kayaba line; Fort Max got a reissue soon after, Hot Spot got that GDO realease... I'm just saying it's possible.

You know, a couple of years ago I went on a huge G1 combiner buying spree and got them all in either official release or KOs, such as that Computron that even came in G1-ripoffish packaging. Defensor was the only one I didn't get, and I remember him being cheap enough back then for me to comfortably blow him off with the assurance that I'd just get him later. 200$ nowadays, man, that's kind of steep.....

As far as my wanted reissues, a lot of good thoughts in this thread. I'm not in for Metrotitan because I bought that KO a few years back, and I'm not like some of you purists..... :lol:
I like the idea of the 84 cars that we haven't got like Mirage and Wheeljack and Sunstreaker, or something like the Dinobot giftset, or some Japan only guys like Overlord and Deathsaurus.

I'm pretty sure that if they could do it legally, cost-effectively and above all, without anyone complaining that it's essentially a brand new toy from a brand new mold, while they could have put their resources into something with a little more articulation, they would have done that a long time ago. :lol:

So yeah, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack and Mirage will be in fans' dreams for a little while longer.

G1 Scorponok.

Btw, Blitzwing ain't too far from being re-issued given that he already had a TFC release a few years back.

Ultramagnus and the rest of the TFC gang too are inherent possibilities.that is if Hasbro green lights them.
I just completed after 30 years, G1 Season1 and 2 Decepticons!
My Transformers purchasing habits
1. Not hung up or hate scale. MP, Legend, Voyager I'll take 'em all.
2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)
