    I hope we get a Soundblaster and Twincast from this. Wouldn't mind the other tapes as well for Soundwave and Blaster.

    YES! I love this idea. Twincast has such a nice color scheme.

    I pre-ordered Ricochet. Red Swoop isn't something i'm interested in since i sold my Blue Swoop. Each of these Select Series releases will have to be evaluated on an individual basis. The Arctic Camo Megatron rumor sounds good but just have to see some actual listings/pictures. It makes me wonder if there will be a release structure with Deluxe "waves" and Voyager "waves". i'd love to see an equivalent release amount to the Club and Sub Series where you were getting about 3 voyager and 6 deluxe a year.

    Has someone digibashed Siege Megatron in his artic camo thats rumored for this line?

    I'm skipping Siege Voyagers and Leaders, so ArticTron is the perfect excuse to get the mold. Hopefully an OP counterpart is also on the horizon.

    Maybe we'll finally get TR Eject and Steeljaw.

    Yup. He's almost certainly a figure that would have originally been released in PotP before it was cut short. I bet in Nova's wave.

    Late to the part, but damn Ricochet looks good. I do prefer the original Jazz mold, but since I never got Million Publishing's repaint of that mold into Ricochet this one will do. Interestingly I think I prefer this mold ikm these colors and it'll differentiate Jazz and Ricochet more on my shelves.

    No intetest in Red Swoop (Planet X is my Swoop), but I'm interested in arctic camo Megs... especially if it does indeed utilize the Siege Megatron mold as I'm passing on it due to the "battle damage". Wonder if it'll be marketed as Megatron or as another character like Megaplex?

    Hopefully we can get the return of “Powered Up” names, like “Artic Charge Megatron.”

    That'd be cool, but I think in this case I think I'd prefer it being a new character.

    Really wish Swoop had gotten a new visor head...
    Can't really reward Hasbro with money here for a straight-up cash grab.

    Ricochet looks OK, but I'm more than happy with my Takara Tomy United EX version with an actual Targetmaster...

    Hope in the next wave/release of Selects we get some more fan service, though.
    Maybe we'll get some other Japan-inspired wildcards like an Overcharge repaint of Blitzwing?
    I'd also buy a Magnificus from Perceptor.

    I mean, if you buy it, it can be whoever you want it to be. Because of the fiction I’ve written, Universe 1.0 Nemesis Prime is actually Scourge(during the Beast Era) who took Nemesis Prime’s name after the latter’s demise, and that original Nemesis Prime(POTP) was an Optimus Prime from another universe who came to revelation that Unicron the one in the right after a series of catastrophic events.

    Neither of those things are intended, but thats who they are to me. I think thats part of the magic of Transformers and it’s figures, any figure of a character could represent a vast number of the character throughout the multiverse, allowing it to be any sort of interpretation of the character you choose it to be, or perhaps it could be a different character altogether. Thats what headcannon is for.
