Actually, that's a good point. It feels like the only big Selects news has been the Seacons and other Takara projects. The last bit of news from Hasbro's side that I can remember was Nightbird and Hot Shot. I hope Hasbro does start bringing more character to the line. Considering there are a couple characters who I feel like would be easy repaints like Artfire from the new Grapple mold, Hauler if they want to give him a new figure, Seekers, maybe even a new Bug Bite from a new Bumblebee mold.

As a side note, I do kind of wish we would get an almost sequel to the Cloud series Takara did where we got weird versions of characters, but without the insane mark up. I think it'd be interesting to see a Drift/Deadlock from the Punch/Counterpunch mold, maybe a Prime from Siege Megatron as a reference to that one toy where it was both Prime and Megatron. I'm not saying the whole SELECTS line should be that, but the occassional one-off would be neat

Takara is supposedly putting out a boxed set after the pre-orders are all out some time in April or May. Only problem is they're only selling them in Japan so prepare to pay at least $50 for shipping on top of the sale price. I've all ready started saving.

I think we're due for more Generations Selects reveals at any time now. We've already had a leak indicating a Micromaster Spy Patrol Selects release from the EB Games computer listings in Canada. Earthrise is just now starting to trickle into North American stores as we approach the "March 2020" launch date, according to pre-order information. Hasbro is also unlikely to unveil any selects releases until after the first mainline use of the mold has been announced. We knew about Siege Prowl long before Siege Smokescreen, for instance. The Micromaster Spy Patrol pack may be one of the first to be announced, but I wouldn't be surprised if we also saw soon a repaint of Wheeljack as Slicer or Exhaust or Starscream as a different seeker (if not Thundercracker or Skywarp, maybe Sunstorm?).

Remember, a lot of selects figures have come out during/around a toy convention, in fact, I think the bulj of them came out in concert with a toy convention :-?

Same, here. Now to wait on Lio Convoy to ship my stack out. :D
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Selling off some toys to make room. Come on by for some bargains!

Yup, but I wouldn't expect anything as far as a reveal beyond 'hey look at this, isn't it cool? it's also live on pulse right now!'; but yeah, I'd expect something from toy fair :-?

Again, it's not a box set, it's a set of individual boxes to clear out left over stock from the previous pre-orders. It went up on Takara Tomy Mall in December for a March release and sold out fairly quickly. You'll have to save more than an extra $50 to get them from third party sellers that are sure to jack the prices up on Amazon and eBay.

Seems unlikely since all of the previous Selects have been retools/repaints of retail figures. Frenzy and Buzzsaw feel like an obvious choice, but I don't see the other two getting a Selects release. Maybe those two with Wingthing and Enemy?

Sure wish we'd get a Cobalt Sentry release in general, be it Selects, MP, or Encore.

HasTak can definitely get some more mileage out of those Soundwave minion molds. My hope is we'll see Blaster in Earthrise or the next line who also use those micromaster casettes as to keep this specific sub-gimmick alive. If that is the case then there's definitely more chances to see some SELECTS cassettes.

I got my first 2 seacons paid for from TFsource as well. Now just to wait on the other 4.

I also don't expect the next selects reveal to come until Toy fair. Megatron was the first and he was revealed at toy fair last year, and then I would expect more as the year goes around events as well.

I just want Frenzy and Buzzsaw so I can finish the main 6 Soundwave cassettes for the first time

Frenzy and Buzzsaw are a given if the rumor pans out. Can only image Ravage and Ratbat will get a repaint of there are any more.

Off topic, considering this will be your first complete set, which molds represent who in your collection?

I'm imagining those 2 will get repaints as well, but I don't really know the rest of the cassettes, so I'm not minding too much, though I do hope we get the remaining of the con cassettes down the line in Micromaster form.

Bee movie Soundwave is my Soundwave, and FOC Soundblaster my Soundblaster. I have the TR Laserbeak and Ravage, but Ravage is on my Lost Light self separate from the rest. I have the FOC Buzzsaw, Ratbat, Ravage, Rumble, and Frenzy as well, but they are weaker so I am updating them, plus the Siege ones fit multiples inside the TR molds chest.

The siege/selects ones will be my main cassettes when all is said and done

As you know, I have a ridiculous amount of Soundwaves and cassettes. I just recently added the G1 reissues to the ranks.

I'm very excited for any and all cassettes coming down the Selects pipeline. I'm hoping I can get Frenzy and Ratbat at a reasonable price at some point.

But how do you plan on ordering it anyways? They only ship to a Japanese adress. Also, the preorder has since been sold out. What's your plan here?

Wolfman Jake wrote:I know this isn't the Masterpiece thread, but it's relevant to the discussion of Hasbro Pulse delaying the releases of their Takara Tomy products. I just got notified that my MP-19+ Smokescreen preorder is now in stock at TFSource. If other third party sellers are getting their stock on time, why isn't Hasbro Pulse?


But do you know if the version you are getting has the extra english box or not? Its technically 2 different releases of the same toy so I can see there being a regional difference in distribution depending on the version you are getting.

They seem good redecos on first glance, but their QC leaves a lot to be desired. Clear nail polish is a must.

Exactly. They look to be good, but the QC was miserable. Thankfully the rest of the Selects figures I have gotten did not have issues

I think that Red Swoop might be the weakest figure to come out since thrilling 30


They seem good redecos on first glance, but their QC leaves a lot to be desired. Clear nail polish is a must.

Exactly. They look to be good, but the QC was miserable. Thankfully the rest of the Selects figures I have gotten did not have issues


I suspect those two may have been rushed a bit actually, given they're "easy to do", to the point they skipped QC altogether. If so, it leads credence to my theory that different plastic colors have different tolerances.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl and Swindle, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

You think of upgrading from 5$ footlongs?
Nah, 6" is enough for me.


Footlongs all the way, especially if they have spicy sauce on them. :x

I especially like them with Sheetz Boom Boom Sauce. I never get 6" by themselves, always need footlongs

Yeah, he and Swoop were not a good start to Selects.

I would tend to agree with you. I really wish they had been better, I like Ricochet as an Arm to Lost Lightatron, and Red Swoop as an arm to Magnaboss. But Red Swoop cannot hold a pose in arm mode at all
