    I bought alt Ricochet because I like the black color scheme but I always wish they can have a reprolabel and turns it into a G1 vehicle. Problem is I can't think of a G1 character that Ricochet resembles. Give me your opinion on this I'd like to submit a suggestion to Reprolabel.com if I can find a good G1 TF to convert that alt into.

    Ricochet is a G1 character.

    All you'd need for a complete Stepper is a repainted Meister head slapped on instead and it's perfect... Now find me a G1 character that looks like Rollbar, THEN we're in business.

    I kinda get where you're going with this. You mean like an A-lister G1 character, right? Someone who's memorable or recognizable from G1?

    I figure Ricochet (and, I dunno, one of the other WRXs, like Smokescreen) could be done up as Rumble and Frenzy, but those guys are coming out anyway.

    Ricochet could also be used for Runabout (Runamuck? I confuse them) easily.

    There was a time where I was trying to figure out if Rollbar was originally meant to be someone else. I came up with 3 possible results: Sandstorm (orange dune buggy is only a few steps away from orange jeep, and he shares Rollbar's adventurous personality. His role as 'reconnaissance' is similar to Rollbar's role as Tracker), Wideload (was originally a throttlebot along with Rollbar, and is obviously bright orange), and, this last one is very unlikely, but this very obscure Swindle repaint

    Pretty much what I was thinking.

    Wasn't he in Headmasters? (It's been way too long and I didn't pay that close attention)

    the only official media he's been in was a single issue of the G1 manga (and a very passing reference in the Dreamwave series), but his toy was released at the same time as the headmasters

    That's a good idea. We already have Deadend and Dragstrip (or Decepticharge) so having another Stunticon is a good thing.

    the best part about Leland is it's the name of the murderer from Twin Peaks (points to anyone who gets that reference)

    I was totally hoping that the Alt. Prime repaint might be Motormaster...in my world he is! He just needs a bit more color, like say, diagonal silver stripes on the rear quarters like the Ram Rumble Bee trucks...

    Love Twin Peaks.
