The latest issue of Dengeki Hobby Magazine has a small blurb about the upcoming Transformers Encore reissues from TakaraTomy. It states that the figures will include "anime accurate" heads. Look for pictures soon!

-Update-
AC Toys have posted an image of what the new paper heads will look like:



Seems that the Head is "clipped" onto the top of the windscreen in robot mode.

Looks like they'll just be stickers, unfortunately.

Stickers are better than nothing, I suppose, but real new head sculpts would be awesome.

Didn't repro labels beat them to this?

I would like to see the pictures when they come out. It may help people decide if they would like to buy Ironhide and Ratchet.

Here's hoping the Classics get full bodies and not just heads if the Classics continue with them.

That's pretty much a guarantee.

This makes me think a Classics incarnation is unlikely:

Its only going to be stickers anyway you see it.Unless they redesign the seat area theres not much they could do with that mold with out redesigning the whole thing.

We can only hope that they figure something out. Although the sticker thing sounds the most logical out of all possible soulitions.

Agreed. I'd love it if they actually had new sculpted heads.

This is welcome news. I have these on preorder and was planning on ordering the upgrade set from reprolabels. So, this saves me $12. :D

I say it´s a plastic head piece to be put over the seat/sticker face.

I'd like to see the windscreen fold back flat with the glass section itself folding out of the way ( either flipped backwards or splitting in the middle and slotted either side of the body ) and then a proper head fold up from the cabin area through the glassless windscreen area.

I don't see how a couple of botcon exclusives from a few years ago would effect the upcoming classics 2.0.

I think its because at the last Bot-Con a roumer got around that we would see "one" better rendision of the Ironhide/Ratchet G1 character in the upcoming year.

This would now seem to be that one.

Personally, I never really liked the Ratchet/Ironhide mold...however, if they decided to at real head sculpts in place of those "seats" that would rock.
