Toy News: Official photos and pre-orders for "Generations" Selects" Red Swoop and Ricoche
Earlier this month it was revealed that the "Power of the Prims" branch of the "Generations" line was not finished yet via listings on Midtown Comics for "Red Swoop" and "Ricochet". Now thanks to Entertainment Earth we have official photos of these upcoming "Generations Selects" figures!
As speculated earlier, the Red Swoop is a redeco of "Power of the Primes" Swoop featuring the red version of the character from the back of his packaging. Ricochet is indeed a G1 Stepper themed redeco of "Power of the Primes" Jazz! These figures are both up for pre-order now at Entertainment Earth for $19.99 each with a release date of February 2019. Follow the links below to pre-order your figures and support BWTF!
Update: BWTF has received the following official information on these figures from Hasbro!

Generations Selects is a fan-dedicated collection of figures featuring special edition, limited release versions of Transformers characters. They’re mail-order only, shipped in special packaging exclusive to this line. We launched this line for our fans to expand their collection and make it truly unique.
Power of the Primes Dinobot Red Swoop:
The original 1985 Transformers toy release of Swoop had red deco. TFans can get a Swoop with red deco inspired by the original G1 toy. You won’t find it in stores!

Ricochet deco is based on the 1987 Targetmaster, known in Japan as Stepper. It has the character’s classic flame deco, as well as sleek gold rims and gold accents.
