I thought it was paint, and the Stickers are included for the non-attendee custom class figure. I could be wrong.

Yup, that is correct. The session only gives you the stickers you choose to apply. Meaning that you will still be able to get the stickers and figure packaged together with the leftovers on their site later.

But i have a question guys, does this mean that there will now be a new entry for toys in the TF Wiki for:

Rescue Bots Medix
SG Ratchet
G1 Ratchet
G2 Ratchet

?

Class attendees I've spoken to stated that the pre-assembled figure does NOT include the stickers. They've also never included the stickers for them in the past.

From what we've seen on upcoming toys. It seems stickers are making a come back. Botcon has been doing some game changers lately with some stuff so it's not improbable that they may include sticker sheets.

Is it a random draw you you get with the preassembled figure?

I've never seen or heard of the preassembled figures coming with them(none of mine nor any of the ones I've painted on commission had them), so no clue.

They may have changed it this year, but as I said, the classes are being told they don't come with them and the class attendees are only getting the G1 set and their choice of one other set since the non-G1 sets were made in much smaller quantities.

Of course they're official. Every class figure has ended up on the Wiki.

SG Ratchet already existed anyway - http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Ratchet_(SG)

I imagine so seeing as how they have entries for other custom class figures such as Galva Convoy and G2 Sideswipe. Also I'm not aware of a G2 Ratchet. I see

Marvel Comics Ratchet
G1 Ratchet
Prime Ratchet
SG Ratchet
Medix

Where are people getting "G2 Ratchet" from? Was it stated by the customization class? Because I'm not even aware that there were ever plans for Ratchet to be rereleased in the 90s.

He has a G2 autobot symbol, so he is G2 ratchet (isn that how G2 works?)

Also Powerglde proved hat you dont need to be planned to have a G2 version of yourself:

At least that narrows it down. I now know you arent jealous of the Medix figure.

Personally I'm not liking any of the default suggested decos. If I was getting one, I'd pick the G1 flavor, bring him home in vanilla and IDW the helsinki out him at my leisure.

I have a hard time applying stickers, painting a figure frightens the perfectionist in me. I'd never be happy and wouldn't be able to leave good enough alone.

But at least I'd have a sweet G1 sticker set to never apply. :oops:

I think that's kind of weird, since none of the other hand foot guns are translucent. It's cool and all, and I do find it interesting, but none of the combiners have that, so it seems a little like maybe CW Ratchet is not actually supposed to be a part of any combiner team? ....Which itself seems odd, since apparently every Autobot in CW is now part of a combiner team?

I know the custom class figure is usually some real random thing, but this seems real .....pointless-ish? SG Ratchet is a neat idea though.
