    Could someone mirror the pics? They won't load for me.

    Oh well, I've seen the figures before. Kinda cool they went all fire guts on Prime.

    As a lover of any and all things Ramjet and Smokescreen, I... still have to pass on these.

    Meh. Not into the Fast Action Battlers. Ramjet and Smokescreen look nice, but still a pass. More for everyone else who likes them.

    I have the normal FAB Prime but that one looks much better so i'll grab him also, the rest meh, besides Prime the FAB molds are kinda bleh, least Prime has most of the needed articulation.

    Ramjet=sold. Smokescreen will require an actual looky at the real package in person.

    Smokescreen's lookin' good! It's amazing what a better paint job will do to improve a lackluster mold. Wish he was a deluxe, but I'll take him! :thumb

    Ramjet and Smokescreen, I want.

    Ironhide, I don't want.

    Rodimus Optimus, I want to see first before deciding.

    At lest Ramjet didn't get sadled with a dunce cap, this time. Still not interested in the FABs. I really hope we see a that Smokescreen deco on the deluxe Jazz mold.

    If he didn't have a cone on his head then he wouldn't be called a conehead would he?

    From afar, the Optimus body reminds me of Cliffjumper just a bit/

    The perfect side dish and a alternative to soup or salad.

    The toys would have looked better packaged in vehicle mode using the same style packaging as the regular deluxe toys.

    Not only is this Ramjet not G1 Ramjet so differences like that are allowed (with Smokescreen the legs are different), I don't believe there would be any room for a remolded head to go in vehicle mode.

    So you already own these molds to be able to say that they are crappy? I only own FAB Ironhide and he's okay but his arms are lame.

    Its the boring grey of the Jazz toy that put me off buying the FAB version, the mold doesn't look too bad. Certainly not realistic or highly detailed but still pretty acceptable from what I can see in pictures.

    It's unfortunate that the FAB figures weren't just a bit better in general. FAB Brawl, Ratchet, Jazz and Bumblebee are okay... but not quite enough to sell me on them.

    I have a soft spot for FAB Starscream just because he's reminds me of a baby bird or something. He's really quite comically cute... though not exactly the wicked war machine toy one would hope for.

    I'm curious about this Optimus repaint though. he was one of the better FAB figures in terms of articulation, etc...

    If he's orange and not red, I can seem some excellent potential in him to make a deluxe Huffer figure (by simply parts-swapping with the original FAB Optimus).
