    I was wondering and have heard of various fans saying that there may be 2 versions of Alt. Ricochet. Which has the nose painted gold or not. If you have this figure post here so we can see if this is true or not.. Which version do you have?

    For the people that have the white nosed version, does the box show him with a painted nose?

    Box shows him with a gold nose. I just look at this ALT and I think Tyrone from Chapelle's Show "Is this the five o'clock free crack give away?"

    The box is depicting the same stock photos that can be seen at BBTS, Entertainment Earth and Hasbro.com.

    Got mine yesterday, he has a white nose. Really, though, it's not a big deal at all-- unless you've got a harsh light illuminating him from the front (which almost never happens except for pictures on the Internet), he looks fine.

    The pics on the box for Alt Ricochet seem to be the Binaltech toy. Notice the steering wheel is on the right hand side of the car instead of the left.

    It was just an inverted pic... It's the same with Rollbar since the leg with the spare tire case is on the opposite leg... :thumb 

    BT will not get Ricochet and Rollbar...

    This isn't really all that earth-shattering, is it? Pictures of toys in non-finalized colors on official documentation (boxes and literature) have been a part of the TF universe since blue Bluestreak and grey Astrotrain.

    And yeah, there's no BT version of this guy. Wish there was! :thumbs2:
