    I hadn't planned on buying Cannonball, but when I saw him tonight ( first time ) I just couldn't help myself. I picked him up, looked him over, and tossed him into the cart. Why oh why must pirates be so cool?

    I totally hadn't caught that he was supposed to be a pirate or at least influenced by pirates. wow.

    I don't quite understand the obsession with pirates and ninjas.

    Seeing as he's predominately black, I thought he was a ninja pirate.

    There's always the seemingly inevitable Thunderblast repaint. :)

    His bio is interesting. He must have visited Earth long time ago and liked the pirate design :D

    I found him for the first time yesterday, too, as well as Shortround and Scrapmetal. I was mildly tempted by Shortround (the Seaspray homage is strong there) and Scrapmetal (who, IMHO doesn't look as much like a Rumble than I thought) I passed on them all. Cannonball was cool and all, but just didn't tempt me.

    I may still go back and get that Shortround though, if he's still there today. Hey, it's only 7 bucks.

    I don't care what anybody thinks, Cannonball is one of the sweetest repaints ever, I can't wait to get my paws on him.

    Great Photos Muffin, Nice action pose!

    I don't know I saw him at Target and passed on him.

    Ironically enough I didn't do that with Skywarp. For some reason I really liked the paint job when I saw him in person.
