I suprisingly found Rollbar and Ricochet at my local WM (well, two local WMs, now). Thought I'd put up a quick review... Packaging Ricochet comes in the new Alt. style Bubble packaging. I noticed that there's already been a slight change in the packaging between wave 1 and wave 2- for wave 1 (Skids and Sunstreaker), the manufacturer's logo was on the bottom left corner of the front of the box. For Ricochet and Rollbar, it's the bottom right corner. Ricohet's motto is "If I don't catch you, my missles will." It's too bad they didn't include a imssle pack, like the ones made for a couple of the BT Smokescreen. Ricochet is Alt. # 20, for those of you keeping score at home. I've really come to dislike the bubble packaging, as three of the 4 I have have small tears along the side from opening the bubble. Car mode Ricochet is a Subaru Impreza WRX, just like Smokescreen and Silverstreak. He hasn't been remolded from 'streak as far as I can tell, just repainted. His primary color is black. He also features yellow, orange, and gold flame decals on the hood and front doors. The spoiler also has a gold sticker, and the wheel rims are painted gold as well. The decals are a little tacky, but they're growing on me. A new feature to this wave of Alts are that the license plates represent actual states. Ricochet is apparently from New Jersey, which makes sense, considering the tackiness of the flame decals FYI, Rollbar has a Colarado plate. For his interior, Ricochet has the same deatiling as the other Subarus, except he has red stripes about a 4th of the way across each seat Transformation Transformation is the same as the other Subarus. I've found that the joints on my particular Ricochet are a lot tighter than I remember those of 'streak or Smokescreen being. Robot mode Robot mode is where Ricochet really shines. His chest, upper arms, upper torso, shins and feet are black, with the hood's flame sticker still on the chest and the spoiler gold decals on his shin guards. His forearms, waist, head, and upper legs are predominantly white. The white/ black effect really helps him stand out. Ric's head is the same as Silverstreak's, but with a yellow face and black...horns. Ric also has a change in his leg paint apps. Where 'streak's legs were red until they were level with his pelvis, Ric has black paint apps just above the knee, and then his legs are white again as they become approach the pelvis. While the white on 'streak's front license plate stood out, Ric's Autobot plate fits right in with the rest of his paint scheme. And some more fun... Summary I like Ricochet a lot. The flame decos are a little tacky, but they look great in robot mode. The black and white really sets him apart from the other Alts, and gives him a nice look. If you're an alt collector, or don't have the Subaru mold yet, he's a definite buy. If you're a casual Alt buyer, it probably depends on your affection for the character, or seeing him up close. 8/10.
