    I was hoping it would be a classic character gone bad or good. But, it's a freebie so can't really complain to much, it's still an awesome set. I can't wait to see what the souveniere figs will be.

    better than phaseing blue mirage. I really like how the racing stripe works out in vehicle mode.

    crosswise, smokescreen, Jolt, Jazz, and Ricochet.

    5 names one mold. Still if I was attending under energon rate I wonder how cheap ricochet would be to pick up on the floor.

    I don't mind the paint job so much, especially once I realized I was getting a Deadend vibe from it. But as Im a sucker for exclusives, I'll definately take it.

    not sure about the use of this mold AGAIN, but i find this deco to be nicer than the one in the set. i also think it beats the hell out of an all clear figure.

    Man, what a random combination of name and color scheme. Aside from the Jazz head, this looks absolutely nothing at all like Ricochet. It looks like they just slapped together some random paint and pulled a name for it out of a hat.

    This year's set really continues to underwhelm.

    Actually, it does sort of make sense. It looks like they took G1 Ricochet, inverted the black and white parts, then added the red from Botcon 05 Ricochet. That's how it looks to me, anyway.

    WOW

    I am am SEVERELY underwhelmed with this set as a whole...and they manage to repaint the crummiest deluxe mold in the set...the excellion mold would have been a much better choice.

    Heroic Skywarp and Thundercracker 2 pack(in G1 colors) as the other attendee exclusive is the only thing that can save this debacle of a set...lol at the shitstorm that would start...that would be neat for funpub to homage themselves and 07!

    I think its a possibility with all of the decepticons to have an arial theme

    Haha, wow. Another repaint of an obsolete toy. Reasons like this are why I'm glad I can't make it to Botcons.

    This is the reason the set should be shown BEFORE we plunk down $300 and a hotel deposit.
