Like the title says, you can view these new images thanks to online shop AMIAMI.COM. These new pictures show the minibots' details in robot and vehicle modes quite well. Click the above link to view the pictures.


The Encore minibot set is scheduled for a May arrival, costing about $35 USD at online stores. The set consists of Pipes, Swerve, Bumblebee (Anime Accurate head remold), Outback, and Tailgate. You can see BBTS listing here

Is it me or does Bumblebee look to have more chrome than the normal release (bumper and headlights)?

Some of those look like they might be photoshopped/custom,but if they are real,i'll definately be getting this set.

Bumblebee definitely has more chrome and he looks good. I don't really like any of the others they're including but I really want that Bee.

I'm confused. The figures shown in the pics don't match the names listed on the BBTS description. For example, BBTS claims the set includes Huffer, but that's clearly Pipes, not Huffer.

Very cool, I like when takara goes that extra mile. All the little face details that were a solid colour in the original releases makes these guys worth getting even if you already have one or two of the set.


Outback face looks a lot better with his visor painted blue.

Those look really nice I don't own any of those and with the show accurate look they have they seem even more appealing to me. I'll definately get this.

BBTS updated the pic with their pre-order, but not the description it seems. No Huffer, etc...

I agree, because not all of the G1 series doesn't count as anime. Except for part of Scramble City everything prior to Japan's Headmasters series was (so far as I know) made in America.

I might get this when it comes out though. Or maybe pre-order it like I did Henkei Megatron.

I'm loving Swerve and Tailgate. Although Outback's gun kinda looks like MEgatron's fusion cannon. Still pretty cool minibots

Bumblebee looks really excelent, it's worth enough just for him, but the other look great as well. Now I'm more glad that I had pre-ordered this reissue, although I'd prefer the other set.

Yup, Takara has updated these again with extra chrome on Bumblebee and more color on the faces as other people have mentioned. Here are the original versions from Ryan's galleries. I am very pleased how Takara continues to go the extra step to add a little more detail to the reissues. It makes the reissues a little different from the originals, while pleasing the fans at the same time. I hope this continues. :D


Original Bumblebee no chrome:

Original Outback solid silver face:
