    Sold on Ricochet. Already have the SDCC Movie Strafe redeco for a Red Swoop and the regular POTP release for my '85 Bots shelves. Excited for what this line will bring though! Hoping for a Red Slug/Slag to match the cartoon. From the sounds of it, this is what Warden and co. have been teasing for a replacement to the Fan Club figure offerings with all their "stay tuned" comments since FP lost the license.

    EASILY getting that Ricochet...that deco looks excellent even if the mold isn't all that spectacular. Can't wait to see the rest of the Select Series!

    Ricochet/Stepper looks a million time better than Jazz did, imo. And I like that they're using actual toy photos instead of cg renders. Now where's that Combat Hero Megatron?

    Not much of a challenge considering that stores don’t stock entire waves of toys that they Are supposed to be carrying.

    That mould works so much better as Ricochet. He's an insta-buy.

    Got my Pre-orders in. I can't wait to see what else this line has to offer.
    I can't wait to see "selects" Voyager G2 Combat hero Arctic Megatron from the siege mold if the rumors are true.

    Ricochet. Unless you go by the Japanese names for everyone.

    that's sweet.

    is it too much to hope they might do something crazy with this line like re-issue the impossible to find wave 5 of TR? or to bring over the Takara Targetmasters??

    Goddamn Ricochet looks so damn good. I don’t have to track down a United Stepper after all. Now if only we can get his red and white buddy next....

    I go by what rolls off the tongue better. For me it's Stepper.

    Damn! Stepper does look good. Might have to get him.
    "From across the globe" sounds interesting.
    Hopefully many Japanese and European characters.

    OMG! That price! These are exactly the same price as retail deluxes!

    id say takara targetmasters are unlikely since siege has targetmasters and bringing over the takara ones would divide purchases

    This is wonderful. I wanted a ricochet from that potp Jazz mold and here it is! I’m excited for future redecos since Takara is out of that game.

    Ricochet looks slick!

    "Mail-order only". So what does this mean? If they're mail-order only does that mean they're actually sold directly by Hasbro and Entertainment Earth is just reselling it? Are they exclusive to online retailers? And for us international fans, what's the availability going to be like? Are we only going to be able to get them by importing them from US-based stores?

    Also, doesn't this feel like a watered-down replacement for TFSS? Semi-obscure Japanese Targetmaster Ricochet, G1 toy colors Swoop, and G2-inspired Megatron are totally something FunPub would have done. And in 2/3 cases, actually have done in a way.

    As I said earlier...I want to love and get Ricochet but as I had a bad breakage issue with the transplastic canopy piece, I'll have to skip this. Swoop on the other hand...hell YES.
