Alternator Ricochet

Based on the characters from Transformers G1, Takara and Hasbro have brought new life to old familar names like Smokescreen and Trunks by re-creating them using existing car models.

Here we have Ricochet being re-built as a Subaru Impreza WRX:

The flames are starting to look a bit tacky to me:

Look at the details

A cleaner car mode:

No more tacky flames for me!

A great looking (after removing the flames) mold
