    I am trying to get my set complete of shattered glass and just won a ricochet for $67. I honestly havent saw one yet for that low...how much was he at the convention?

    at the convention he didnt cost anything, he was a "bonus" for those who pre-ordered the boxed set.

    So, he was $300 :p

    Ah...gotcha. Well ,Im just glad I got one for quite a bit under $100. I think the cheapest buy it now for him is like a $120. I really like the look of him and jazz. I hope he had a cool part in the comic. I have a feeling I am going to wish this was an ongoing comic when I read my issue.

    That's an insanely good deal for the attendee bonus figure, so congrats to you.

    2007 Mirage goes for $50-60 now.

    It's a good deal if you wanted a Botcon Ricochet in your collection.

    Probably, if you want it.

    It's really not a great mold or deco, though. My opinion, anyways.

    Check back next year and see if he's as cheap as clear Mirage. I'm betting he won't be, same as Flamewar or Tigatron. It's also a great price considering Botcon just ended and this is often when prices are highest. As for the mold... well, that's a personal thing. Personally, this is probably my least favorite version of the mold, but I don't hate it either.

    This is probably the most lavish freebie that botcon has had since FP took over. I like the vehicle mode, but the bot mode isnt quite as cool as Jazz. I have Jolt, that's really all of the mold that I need. But I can understand wanting to complete the set.

    i have a feeling you'll be disappointed with his role in the comic, he basically pops up in a couple panels, one of which has him getting shot in the chest...
