    Just watched the Armada Wheeljack episodes. Do you guys think that Alt Ricochet was heavily influenced by the cartoon version of Armada Wheeljack? Or was that just coincidental?

    Well, other than color they have nothing in common, other than being cars, of course. And Alt. Ricochet has no personality because he was never in a cartoon or comic. So I'm leaning towards they have nothing in common at all? Yes, that's what I'll go with. :p

    Also ARM Wheeljack looks nothing like Wheeljack... So ALT Ricochet's head is influenced by a nobody???

    So instead of thinking of the character as "Armada Wheeljack" think of him as "Micron Legend Rampage". :D 

    I'm that Ricochet is based off of Stepper not Rampage. The colour similarities is just a coincidence.

    Speaking of A. Wheeljack, an Alt Prowl redeco as Wheeljack would kick all kinds of ass. The show version that is. Blue stripes > Yellow Stripes

    Armada Wheeljack's nearest relative, design wise, is G1 Sideswipe, apparently, given how there was a lot of popular demand for a Sideswipe repaint of him in Armada and later Universe. Though he's also kinda like G2 Drench, perhaps because of the aborted Battle in a Box version.
    (Pity that never came out, the Smokescreen coloured Hot Shot was the best version of that mold)

    Can't say anything about that, (and it seems to be clarified anyway,)but now I see why I like the look of Ricochet. ML Rampage is my favourite toy :D
