Great news for Encore series fans. The series continues next with Ironhide and Ratchet. Both are available through e-Hobby for pre-order and will be released in December. These particular figures were chosen because of their nostalgia with recent movie. Both figures will be packaged in their G1 style boxes.

Ironhide

Ratchet


Are you sad you that you missed out on Music Label Soundwave? TakaraTomy will be reissuing the Music Label Soundwave (Sparkblue version) as well as releasing a new (Black “Blaster” version). Both figures will be released in December.

I would only get Soundblaster of they improved on some of the features. I'll have to see and see if they upgrade it.

Wow. This line is turning out to be the new TFC line. Love this. We may get the Ramjet and Trailbreaker figs that we never got in the Domestic Hasbro release. Wished Hasbro picked up on this and released them in the US G1 packaging though alongside the JPN release.

You know upgrade it's sound since I heard the toy had too much bass in it. Also I'd like to see the Shoulder Cannon become the speakers of some kind. You know those are only ideas, but I'd like that to happen.

Hmm, hopefully they'll do another two items release, I want another blue one to fiddle around with and a black one.

I just pre-ordered all 3. I'm still not sure about the ML Soundblaster but I have a few months to decide :)

I'm so excited about Encore Ironhide and Ratchet though. I haven't had a G1 Ironhide since I was 6 years old.

This pretty much confirms the rumours based on the G1 pics from the Encore section of TakTom's website. I'm now treating Scorponok as all but confirmed and allowing my hopes of a retool for Black Zarak to increase, at least a little.

Awesome news and if Scorponok/Black Zarak become confirmed........

:shock:

I might need a straight jacket to help restrain me from ordering too many.

I'm only giving slight though to Soundblaster, since I already got Spark Blue Soundwave. I'm not too sure if I want to get him or not.

Some pictures surfaced on Takara Tomy's website in the Encore section a few weeks ago of the G1 forms ofvarious characters that are in the new movie. Now all of a sudden Ratchet and Ironhide are confirmed as reissues. It's not unreasonable to assume that Scorponok and Jazz will be the next ones announced. The Black Zarak is more of a personal "please, please do this" on my part. I was thinking if Scorponok was a main line Encore release then ehobby might be able to put out a remoulded version as Black Zarak. Yes I know that they normally only do repaints and it's not all that likely, but damn I'd buy that figure in a heartbeat.

Ironhide and Ratchet? YES! This is almost too good to be true. True that the toys aren't all that awesome, but I don't care. Getting two of each.

And possibility of Scorponok? *DROOL*

I hope that ehobby would make a Black Zarak that would be great!!!!! Ithink Takara Tomy should reissue Grand Max that would be awsome as well but probably only a dream!!!!
