    Hey all. When I signed up to do this custom, I was thinking "This is cool. I have an extra Ramjet, it will be a simple repaint and it will go to a good cause.". That was in February. This was the most accident and disaster-ridden custom I have ever done. Instead of being one Ramjet figure, what you see here is made up of no less than 4 figures. Day 2, Ramjet's wing's broke, so I panicked and there was no way I was going to be able to track down an affordable Ramjet to replace it, so I bought a Dirge and figured I could just mod the wings to look like Ramjet. Long story short, a bunch of arm and leg breakages later, the final piece is made up of a Ramjet, Dirge, Skywarp and an Acid Storm. Originally, I was going to do the purple in the color of the original G2 Ramjet, but since the Club is making one of those, I chose to go with a lighter shade. I won't say I am completely happy with the finished product, but I did my best, really I did, and I really hope this helps the cause. I want to thank WarriorPriest for being so patient with me.

    ^thanks. And the other thing is if you're not careful when you paint some of the parts where the screw go, they get brittle and snap, which is why it took 4 toys to make this
