    ...does this change your decision to buy it? (a question for only the people who actually planned to purchase it)

    yep, a semi-silly thread :p  - Just want to see how important a white nose can be :D 


    NOW BRING ON THE RESPONSES! :thumb

    I think it looks better with the white nose. I never had any intention of getting it though.

    I had about as much a plan to get it as I did getting an extra Silverstreak and a couple of cans of Krylon

    Considering how many people bitchd about Master Megatrons nose not being painted, this might not be as silly as you think.

    Bue I liked MMs unpainted better...

    the white nose is actually a cybertronian tribal facial marking which means "he who is plastered in sucky flame decals".

    Okay, Ricochet must be from Atlantic City since his flames and the gold look like something straight out of Atlantic City... TACKY... But other than that (and his coke habit) the black and white is NICE...

    Not too shabby despite being a straight up repaint...

    His bot mode looks a lot better than his car mode...

    Oh, and his nose on the pic on the bottom of the box??? Not white... :banghead:

    hahaha :lol 


    (at least Skid's gaudy flames were done well!)

    on a side note, the black plastic looks really shiny/glossy for a Alternator. Maybe some new mold techniques...

    I'll still get it...if the nose looks too terrible I'll do the gold sharpie trick, if it doesn't bother me I won't. Honestly I'm not going to let a toy bother me that much in the first place.
