Ricochet (Subaru Impreza WRX) Additional Info
Ricochet is a repaint/redeco of Alternator Silverstreak. He retains the same black and white coloring of the original G1 Stepper/Ricochet, which includes the signature flames on the hood and on both doors. Furthermore, Ricochet was one of the first Alternators to use an official state license plate - the state of New Jersey - which is, interestingly enough, where Subaru’s corporate headquarters is located. Originally, publicity photos showed Ricochet with a completely gold-colored face. However, the final product sported a white nose, which was not left unpainted like many believed. The head is actually made out of black plastic. Ricochet is Alternator #20.
Additional waves this figure was included in are 3 and 3.5 of Assortment 2.
