Encore Reissues

[Ironhide: it's all good]
Written by GL

Fans of the Transformers Encore Reissues can start to rejoice, because hot on the heels of the 4 pack wave of the top-market Transformers figures comes two more to add to your collection. And just as many expected, they include more stand-out characters.

Latest on in the Encore Reissue series - a Transformers Generation I collectors dream, although in Japanese packaging - are Ratchet and Ironhide.

I won't debate with you about the fact that there two were more recently popularized by the recent big-boom movie, so let's just leave it at that. And let's hope that more of the back-lighted characters are also reissued for our purchasing pleasure.

Needless to say, despite the fact that Ratchet and Ironhide are molded from the same figure cast, the two figures are totally faithful to the original release (from back in the 80s) and come packaged from Takara in mint condition - for display in the box or for your cuddling with at night to sleep. Expect to pay US$34.99 (or B$54.90) for these two awesome figures.
