As far as recolors go, the cartoon colors for Ripper I think were an excellent choice as a repaint. It is in my opinion, the best choice the Hasbro Team could have made on recoloring this figure.
My only complaint is the blue ankles look off.
I also like the Twins arms & tighter upper torso on this release, as well as the gun being black with the silver blade.
So thumbs up from me.

I think in a lot of ways this Ripper looks better than the CP. Which is odd, I liked the CP one a lot. I'll be picking this one up. Maybe 2 so I can improve CP Ripper as well.

I didn't like the CP Ripper (or Torch) for a variety of reasons. I like the upper body of this one better, and I hate the blues used on both pairs of "jeans." In other words, bleh.

I know that I am in minority here, but I really like this figure. I love that Hasbro released the Ripper in the cartoon outfit. What makes it even sweeter is that this is a version we have seen in media, but not as a figure until now. He was one of the highlights of this wave for me. Honestly, I was more upset that Tripwire was released as a single pack after the exact version was in a CP. So what about the element that came with him, this could have been included in another figure with a bigger role in that mini-series. The only complaint I have about this figure is the pegs in the feet being a different color than the boots, and the pants are a tad too dark. I am getting one to keep in package and one to take out. As far as a custom for Gnawgahyde, the only similarity I see is the color. The shirt looks nothing like the Gnagahyde mold in the torso. Personally, I do not think the upper half of this figure is appropriate for this custom. Now I am hoping for the rest of the Dreadnoks, especially Zandar, Zarana, Thrasher, and Monkeywrench. I have heard many people want the same figures - what do you all think about the chances of Hasbro actually making these?

I think the chances of Hasbro remaking all of the Dreadnoks some day is very high (as in close to 100%), but the chances of them being made by 2009 is more like 0%. I think we'll see Monkeywrench and possibly Zandar and Zarana within the next year or so. Thrasher, Road Pig, Zanzibar and Gnawgahyde are probably not likely until 2010 (Thrasher, Road Pig) or possibly later (Zanzibar and Gnawgahyde).
