    This is my minor custom Ricochet. Just changed heads to painted Jazz head. Looks better than the original head as it looks more like Ricochet G1.

    I think he should wrap it for me as a Christmas gift :D

    Great work man! I think it's really neat that you simply used the head for Meister, yet you kept the Ricochet Impreza body. That's cool, man :thumb

    Great job! :thumbs2: 

    I did this sometime back as well (I knew there was something I forgot to submit for a gallery), I think it makes Ricochet look 10x better. Only bad thing was having to file down the back of the head to fit in vehicle mode.

    I did this once as well, but I never thought to paint the face gold. Looks good, mine might have to come off the finished pile

    Amazing, what a difference such a little change makes... though IMHO Rico should STILL have been a black RX-8! XD

    Such an improvement. I'm also baffled as to why the Impreze was used for Ricochet. But with the new head, it actually works really well.

    sometimes the simplest fixes make the biggest differences.

    I've done this myself, but I painted the visor chrome/clear yellow.
