    I'm honestly not expecting much from him, him and Roritchi are probably 2 I'll be skipping

    Not just virtual. The local comics store can't unload Siege G2 Megatron.

    I might do Roritchi (depending on if I like the look) solely based on the deep Japanes G1 reference. but he's also low priority,
    be a if I catch him for $12-14 like a grabbed most of last years selects I wanted.
    I think that one would have moved better if they hadn't gone the unreleased deco. that was just too obscure a reference I think for most folks.

    Hang on. If G2 Megatron ends up happening, what if it's the Earthrise one people don't like?

    That’s what it will be, selects are repaints or minor retools

    as Netflix Megs showed, sometimes a good paint job can greatly improve an unimpressive mold.
    And G2 Megatron had the sort of goofy long face that ER Megatron has, so it at least fits somewhat.

    TBH, Hasbro's been "phoning it in" a lot lately IMHO, and I think that Rotorstorm's head issue may have been originally planned and just a reveal mistake... but I think there's also a good possibility they thought they could just get away with a straight lazy repaint. Especially for a Voyager class, I would expect a few new parts. After all, we got that new IDW-inspired Megs head on that random "unproduced" G2 Megs Selects back in SIEGE, that was kind of a waste of new parts I think. It would be really great if they made the G2 Megs more of a Transformer without having to take off half its cannon to get to robot mode, but I don't know, that's probably too much to hope for.

    Yeah. I'm not a fan of G2 colors, but that cancelled G2 combat deco arguably looked worse than the green and purple longtime collectors would be familiar with.

    I wouldn't mind a new G2 Hero Megatron that's not TR Blitzwing mold (although oddly enough the jet mode in purple was my favorite jet in all of Prime Trilogy).

    Most fans would want this deco.

    I prefer the Hero deco.

    The deco we got already in GS.

    I was thinking that too, but what about ER wave 4? It seems like they could do a FFF but if they're gonna do that why announce all the selects figures outside of it.

    I guess I'm in for G2 Megatron and ER Ratchet if those are in the assortment. Pass on Fasttrack redo, Hothouse, and Bugbite.

    I think some of you are forgetting that the Autobot clones is also going to be one of the gs releases alongside bugbite, roritchi, megs and hothouse?it is in one of the leaks as a gs and its release has been confirmed, right? So the fifth gs could be that instead of ratchet.

    I don't think that has even been rumored has it? First I've heard it. I've generally assumed we'd probably get them as an exclusive set next year.
