I really like the G1 style box. That's a lot of trouble to go to for a knockoff, but pretty cool. Almost makes me wish Reflector had been a regular retail release in the US.

Well, there is the Reflector figure/partner that is going to be included with Legends Shrapnel. Though he's more of an accessory there.
Reflector always had a weird underdog status for me. He was kinda there in G1 but not a big player. I did have the original toy back when it was a mail away and he was awesome.
I would love to see an updated version, even it was just a deluxe Generations but I don't see that happening anytime soon. I did grab the Perfect Effect Reflector and he's a nice enough substitute until an official one pops up.

Perfect Effect included just such an accessory in one of the re-releases of their PE-11 Scout Force X set. But I wasn't about to drop $85 again just for that, no matter how cool it looked on display.

Let's *URK* see what *OOF* you can *KREHK* see...!
Wow! How did you get so many in such good shape, dude? Those look fantastic, especially since they were pretty exclusive when they were out and children back then didn't really care for their toys.

Encore is Takara's thing. BotCon only announces Hasbro's stuff.Stormrider wrote:Was the future of Encores mentioned at Botcon?

First up, Manga Complilation Lucky Draw Black Tracks. This gorgeous redeco of the G1 favorite just stands out amongst the collection and draws your attention. (Guess that's why they call them Lucky Draws? )
And the second of our galleries is the original, the one and only, G1 Tracks. Flame hood deco and all, this classy blue Corvette turns into the classy Autobot with the voice so ritzy, you'd swear he was wearing an ascot!
You can see the full galleries for each figure by clicking their respective images below:

I'd love to see this mold repainted as Backstreet, Freeway and the Battlechargers.

You may recognise this rationale from the Japanese Generations book from 2001, in which the same shots were used of toys who were different characters under Takara than they were for Hasbro, specifically the Headmaster Juniors and the Seacons. What really changes are the poses, but the figure is the same. But why not check it out for yourself by clicking on any of the images below?

I have squeezeplay though and he had good articulation and i think he's one of the few from my collection that is almost intact.

Hell, I'd settle for reissues... of any Headmaster. (Including Juniors.)
