Good 'ol e-Hobby. Always coming through with our collection needs.

e-Hobby is re-releasing some of their previously already sold out toys. Sunstorm was the Dreamwave original character who was inspired by animation from the generation 1 cartoon of the seeker jets that Starscream commanded. Black Megatron was a release of Megatron in black and brown commemorating his Microman colors from which he originated.

Expect these two to be available for pre-order from our site sponsors, or your favorite online store soon. This is the perfect chance for those without either variant colored toy to pick one up.

Sweet.

Maybe I can get a Sunstorm after all. I'd still like to see him done in Classics as well.

I'll likely pick both of these up, but whats the word on the next encore release? It seems like info trickles out at a snail's pace.

I was wondering about the next Encore release also. I can't wait to find out what it is :D


Anyway I think I'll pick up Sunstorm since I missed him last time.

Excelent news to me, but very bad news for my pocket, after all the Encores, Henkeis and Animated Transformers that i bought now this. A total of... well...probably 1000USD or maybe 1500USD...i don't know but surelly alot of money spend this year, whit Transformers and mail cost, and we are still in October!
Sunstorm will be mine!

This is cool, I do want Sunstorm - I just hope the price isn't ridiculous like the recent City Guardian repaint.

I Wonder if they plan on reissuing other E-Hobby repaints? 'cause I'll take Crosscut, Deepcover and a Grey Astrotrain, thanks :P

You know what that means.. expect to see a "larger than normal" supply of these on eBay by sellers looking to cut their losses or cash in on their gains before it's too late.

Well now I don't feel so bad for opening up and putting stickers on my Sunstorm two years ago. However, now the exclusiveness of it all seems gone...

Micorman Megatron!?! Rock on. I hope they pack him in robot mode. I don't want to deal with the orange plug crap...

Thanx for the info TT24.

:DEVIL:

Same here. The only thing that would make it better would be an announcement of an encore figure we haven't seem reissued yet or only once or twice a few years back.

I'd love an encore Springer or targetmaster Blurr. I won't hold my breath on either of them being released...

If I'm right, your wedding is also in February so plenty of "gift" oppurtunities there. Who needs frying pans and steak knives when you can have cool e-hobby releases?
