    Yeah, thought they were going to unveil it... not just tell us what the heck it was. Still, I do like that Jazz so a Ricochet might be nice to have too.

    Pics are up now. Interesting, it's NOT a redo of the Stepper deco, which fortunately saves me some money. I'm curious what the inspiration for the deco was though, I don't think it's been done before.

    lol, thats a terrible repaint IMO. I was nervous that it was going to be a figure I'd really want. What a relief.

    I think they should have made him a Good Decepticon, not an Evil Autobot. I mean we already have four. We only have one (excluding Megs) good decepticon. But I do like the colors. Red's a fav of mine.

    Well I guess that explains why Jazz wasn't evil looking enough.

    And now, straight out of left field.....the exclusive that you all haven't been waiting for!

    In addition to being rather similar to Cyb. Smokescreen, the color scheme evokes nothing. It doesn't evoke G1 Ricochet (a figure whose existence in G1 is dubious) , it doesn't evoke any other Ricochet, and at best, it's just another Cybertronian soldier.

    It looks like an enjoyable figure, but I don't see what makes it desirable.

    Wow... pic is up and it's... underwhelming. Honestly, I'd have gone after this on eBay (probably try for Jazz if I got the money later), but this? What the freak is it? It looks more like Cybertron Smokescreen with Jazz's head.

    Well, someone's bound to like him, but this certainly wouldn't get me to buy a Primus package at this point.

    2005 package + weird arse Ricochet = easy pass. So, not buying this on eBay, but probably Jazz. Seriously, I want to see Megatron! Show me the Megatron!!!!
