    I can dig it. I also would have said to use the beast hunters mold of him though.

    I like it! Definitely in the same vein as the original, which is good as it'll make a great Red Alert some day too.

    Ah ha! Actually very nice. I can see why they went with this over the Breakdown mold.

    Now - here's the question - repainted as Red Alert for an add-on toy or subscription figure? Hmmm?

    Awesome info!

    I love how Cannonball looks. :D 

    I can't wait to see the rest of the crew, and the others.

    Only makes sense for a pirate who was a recolored doctor to come back as a recolored doctor WITH A NEW HEAD

    One interesting note in a follow-up tweet. Cannonball is said to be the only Prime mold in the box set.

    I like it, but that means that I will have three versions of this mold now.
    Prime Ratchet, Beast Hunters Decepticon Ratchet and now Cannonball. Hmmm someone is going to get cut and I am looking at you Prime Ratchet.

    Really solid repaint.

    And it could work as Crankcase too, going off the Red Alert repaint he got for the movie line.

    Looks neat but hm...

    While Cannonball was a direct repaint of Red Alert... you'd think they'd style the head to be a bit less like RA...

    Still... easy enough kitbash fodder now I suppose... get a Cyb RA/CB, put on Ratchet, and repaint.
