    It seems the closest thing for a ramjet for our animated displays will be the mail-in animated activator ramjet over in japan. BBTS has put it up for pre-order so who gonna get it? i know i am getting one, would i love to have a voyager repaint? hell yes, but if this is the best we are getting i'll take it

    I want it, I'd pay a max 20 for it. I would also consider trading for it. Anyone want to trade MP Grimlock for one. Just kidding! What a joke.

    I really wish I could, Ramjet's always had this weird draw to me, seems like I eventually end up with every incarnation he's got even though he's not my favorite seeker, not even my favorite conehead. But that's way too much for an Activator.

    $75 is way too much for anything below a Leader size that isn't a fan-made item.

    In short, no.

    Not me. I'd love one, but as people have said, not for that money.

    Not paying 75 for an activator no matter who it is. That price is insane.

    I'm getting at least one, but not from BBTS. I bought a lot of tokens to redeem for figures so I'm going to use the extras to get some Ramjets (don't ask me to help you get one, as I won't be - I may sell some off once I get them in). :)

    Mine will be coming from Bodhar once he gets them in. It's expensive, but I can afford it right now so I figure I'll strike.

    It's not the size you're paying for, it's the "rarity"; $75 isn't that bad for an Asian Mail-Away Figure. The Animated EZ Collection Seekers ran about that much each and they're legends size (and before it gets brought up, the only one I paid that price for was the Black/Clear Starscream because I needed him to finish the set)

    That being said; I Pre-Ordered with BBTS just to secure one for myself, but if I can get him through other means and at a better price I will.

    I'm going to pick up one as well. I can't quit this far into the game...My love for Animated is costing me a small fortune!

    Yea, BBTS pre-orders are canceled easily enough not to really have to worry about.

    I say this about Seekers on an almost weekly basis LOL...sometimes twice

    I have him pre-ordered as well, though of course there is always the option of cancelling it. While I'm not a mold or figure completist for Animated, I would like to have all the characters in one form or another. If this is the only Ramjet we're getting (which seems likely at this point), I'd like to have him. Heck, I've paid more for smaller figures; years ago it cost me around $80-$90 for WST Thundercracker, and he's about 1/4 the size of an activator. And thats to say nothing of the crazy prices folks pay for the rare Japanese headmasters and dino-cassettes (not that I own them myself).

    I'm passing on Skywarp for now, though.... despite the temptation to have an almost-complete roster of activators Seekers. Gotta draw the line somewhere. :)
