I'd be down for both of those! Even though I already have a blue Swoop.

I would have thought Backstreet would be a good fit for the POTP Jazz mould...

Mmm. Shame nobody thought outside the box a bit more, Ricochet is still pretty cool but it's become an expected reuse.

Will be happy to keep a blue Swoop as a desk toy, but glad to get the originally advertised colour scheme to match the other dinos -- really ****ed me off that it was a last-minute change and stores were therefore mostly using the solicited photos, TBH.

I think we missed this.

Prowl looks a bit strange but I think that's just because I'm so in love with the old Datsun that the G1 model turns into. His chest looks weird to me with a much sleeker hood there instead.

Sixgun looks neat.

Is that pteradactyl based on an Action Master partner I've forgotten?

[EDIT]Doesn't Backstreet transform more like Wheeljack or Sunstreaker than Jazz, though? It'd be nice to get some modern Triggerbots/cons, though.

I don't think Ricochet is THAT much of a rote Jazz redeco, is he? We got one from RTS Jazz but he was some sort of rare Asian mailaway exclusive. And the Alternators one wasn't even redecoed from Jazz, he was a Subaru.

Sixgun looks kind of neat in his own right, whereas Cog just doesn't really interest me.

Don't think so, but more actionmaster-partner style figures is a good thing.

Fair point I suppose... I just prefer Kick-Over, who like Jazz already has a figure that probably won't be exceeded. Ricochet and Artfire are more beloved of 3P.
