    I've never liked Stepper, but that makes me want him.

    That scene work on the United toys has always been pretty awesome, but that one is just screaming "Come and get me suckers!" Love it! I think this is our first look at his non-Targetmaster weapon, too (not that we didn't know what it looks like from Jazz, but we've never seen the color and paint detail for it before that I recall). Love the great paint job on the toy too, with the nice shiny metallic gold. Can't wait to get these in stock so I can nab mine.

    He'll most likely get the KO treatment.

    I will probably convince myself to pony up the extra dough for buying this.
    It is a great mold after all and I LOVE the classics/Henkei/Generations/etc toys.

    I hope Hasbro eventually do their own version of Ricochet. Maybe with a less slavish G1 deco, possibly with more "tribal" flames like on Turbo Tracks.

    And since I own both Universe and RTS Battle in Space Cyclonus, I already have a spare Nightstick...

    I think I have had this thing on pre-order about 3 times now. Really tough to justify the price, even tougher to pass on it. Was thinking of cancelling my Henkei Rodimus preorder (already have one loose), and I can justify that as $40 freed up for Stepper.

    Will this still use stickers or will the flames be tampo'd?

    Odds are they will be painted, but we really don't know until some pics surface of the final product.

    Original mockup used stickers, because it was a mockup. If you look at the most recent battle scene picture the flames are painted.

    Looks nice, but I doubt I would even buy him if he was a regular Generations figure. I practically had to give away my reissue Stepper when I sold him :lol

    They're eventually going to do something..nearly every figure from the RTS Generations line has gotten a redeco/retool or has been teased one.

    I am surprised they have not done united artfire since they got the inferno mold already, he should be next.
