    I think it may have been mentioned somewhere (but I can't remember where) that Megatron ordered Cannonball to hurry up and scan a form, and ended up with the vehicle mode that he's got, and C-Ball still wasn't happy with it. If I could remember where that was posted...

    And I gotta wonder... whether he appears in the TF Club comic or becomes a character in another BotCon script reading... I'd laugh if his characterization has him act like a TF version of Captain Jack Sparrow.

    "But why is the ENERGON gone?!?!?!"

    I'm going to think of his alt-mode as a herse. The car is black, and it goes with the whole skeleton thing.

    Well all I say about it is let the fan fictions about Cannonball begin lol

    I going to the group train on them releasing the seacons as his scuvry crew.

    Is it something with pirates because on WWE Smackdown Paul Burchill has started to dress up as a pirate. Maybe it's because of the next priates of the carriebian movie coming out?

    Maybe a cross over could happen

    Jack Sparrow vs Cannonball

    also it would have been fun if his tools could have been a hook or sword, or even an achor
    lol

    Swears allegiance to Megatron, and only attacks Autobot ships? He's not a pirate, he's a privateer! I think that might actually be cooler.

    Scattorshot, and CD Hotshot need to be repainted as members of his crew.

    Okay, I'm totally buying Cannonball. I already liked the paint scheme, but I love it even more now that the bio actually acknowledges his "airbrushed graphics".

    My only gripe is that they didn't give him pirate-like hand tools.

    I so want that Cannonball. Pirates is a great idea for a character and I plan to add the following to his band of merry pirates:

    Energon Dreadwing
    Armada Tidalwave
    Energon Sharticon
    Cybertron Thunderblast

    Unfortunately Cannonball is the only non ship TF of the bunch but hey at least he's got the decals to make up for it.

    He's slated for an April 2006 release, but first Hasbro have to release Excellion and Override GTS.

    If it were up to me, I'd give him a couple of off-brand Terrorcons as his muscle (beat up ones he saved following the Powerlinx Battles), Sharkticon and Slugslinger. Slugslinger's scarred face is the perfect "pirate" attribute, and for Sharkticon, just give him Creullock's Energon blade... that 'bot looks so good with a sword!

    Universe Blastcharge would make a great sidekick for Cannonball!

    Looks like I may have to get both Cruellock and U. Blastcharge to go with Cannonball. It's such a cool TF not to have a crew around it.

    Funny. That's what I like most about the deco.

    I'm enjoying this redeco idea more than any other redeco idea from the past. It's just TOO funny. Makes you wonder what the designer that came up with the idea was on during the night he/she thought about it.

    I love this mould and the paint app is unique. He looks great. I would love to have this one.
