    And now that I've thought about it for five minutes total, maybe getting this Ricochet in order to further differentiate it from the RTS Jazz mold...

    Because black and gold is a sexy color combo. As I said in The other thread though, the flame tampos on that car style look really weird to me.

    I'm not so sure that's a southern/northern hemisphere thing...

    Really hope Swoop has legs that tab together better this time around. Hopefully his gray matches the POTP Dinobots too. These images might not be final product. So, hopefully? Looking forward to him. Swoop is probably my favorite TF characters.

    Now we need someone to make a non-Shapeways G1-looking Swoop head for people to use for this or repurpose the other one into Ravenus.

    Yeah, it's probably unpaintable plastic that's gang-molded with other white parts. A shame.

    Is Ricochet the answer to why it looked like Elieta infinite had 2 jazzed for legs?

    Yeah, those are all joint parts, so it's that unpaintable nylon stuff.

    The chunk on the roof doesn't look too bad. If the joint clearances don't muck with them, Reprolabels might be able to provide something to cover the front wheel arches.

    After all that has been shown on these new figures i want both. I never bought the jazz mold cause i didn't like the look but the stepper colors on that mold fit i think. The Swoop is a no brainer to buy any way you look at it.

    If this is going to be a cross-toyline style Universe thing, then I'd love to see Hasbro Officially release a Bumper/Bumblejumper figure, dependant on which name they can trademark.

    If the mold is still viable, I'd be happy with it as a repaint and remoulded head of the classics Bumblebee. Then again I'd buy that mold in any colour they threw at us.

    Maybe give us a 2-pack with Cliffjumper (from TR BB mold) and Gears (from TR Brawn mold). New head sculpts too please.
