Thanks man. I really wish the newsify button would appear already.


Also, add Red Leader to the credits. He's the guy that owns kapow, and I do believe he's a member of our very own site right here.

I think Red Leader's user details got lost in the wipe, he signed up August/Sept and the wipe went back further, Jun/July time.

Creds to all of you though!

I already have the Hasbro re-issue of Hoist, but i will be getting Trailbreaker. Here's hoping they touch up his face so it's more accurate.

They've got the rights to the name back?

Joy.

Excelent, finally new Encore figures have been announced :) . I already have Hasbro's Hoist reissue, but I'll buy Trailbreaker for sure. I was expecting more decepticons though.

Hasbro is not reissuing these figures. This is TakaraTomy reissuing them. As far as we know, Hasbro doesn't have the rights to the name, though they could opt to add the 'Autobot' to the from of the name to get around the copyright. Most likely Hasbro won't reissue Trailbreaker given the Reissue line has been dead the past few years.

Two more I need! :D

The poor Encore 'cons are getting very outnumbered though. :(

I have to say I'm a little let down with Takara's choice for 12 and 13...I'll be buying both of them because the prices on the Hasbro and book-style Takara versions have gotten a bit steep on both of these but there were many more G1 series 1-4 Transformers I was hoping for...

ANY Headmaster.
Targetmaster Blurr.
Blitzwing.
Insecticons.
Decepticon/Autobot cassettes .

Oh well.

HELL. YES.

Trailbreaker was strangely my favorite Autobot growing up, yet I've never got around to doling out the cash for an original since I started collecting. Now my wallet can get a break :3

Now all we need is a Universe Trailbreaker and I'll be all set.

Ditto. I got an original a few months back but he's kinda decrepted. Definately want a new one.

Trailbreaker's the last 1984/85 Autobot I need, woooooo!

If they'd only release Shockwave and Devastator I'd finish the Decepticons as well.
