Ricochet (08-16-09)

Transformer of the Day for August 16, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Shattered Verse (2008-Present)

-Function: Bodyguard

-Notable Toy: Botcon Exclusive (Hasbro, 2008)

Notes: Ricochet has the distinction of being the first repeat character in the current line of Botcon exclusives. He also makes good use of the new Shattered Verse Jazz head sculpt. Curious though, he is not an inverse of what has become his tradition, Stepper-esque, colours. While I like the inevitable colour choice, I think it would have been cool to see a gold version with black flames as well.

(Apologies and thanks to shmax.com for the toy pic.)
