    Anyone have a henkei Ramjet that has yellowed??? I believe when they were released they were bone white but over time turns into a creamy yellow??

    here is a link that shows what mine looks like

    Transformers Classics Henkei Ramjet Figure Complete - eBay (item 260721205510 end time Mar-14-11 02:29:20 PDT)

    anyone confirm im not the only one???

    Also if anyone has an encore Skylynx is he bone white or does he have a slight tinge of yellow?? I had mine MISB since it came out and opened it to check it and wasnt sure if the colour was suppose to be like that. thanks!!

    My henkei ramjet's still bone white! Have you left yours in sunlight, or does anyone in your home smoke? That'll do it.

    I was looking at mine lastweek and it is still white. I've had it for two years.

    But I still have it inside the package and I don't smoke.

    Mine is still in the package but I have noticed that it isn't as white as Henkei Prowl... It's and off white like the Classics version.

    Yup mine was MISB until yesterday when I was cleaning out my cupboard and noticed the exact same thing so I had to open it and was disappointed it was yellow :(  Compared to my Hasbro Ramjet this one is either slightly lighter or the same colour. If anyone has a MISB Henkei Ramjet but still white and want to sell let me know!

    here is a pic comparison to the much white United Drift

    My Henkei Ramjet has always been a slightly off-white colour, ever since I've owned him. It's always bugged me slightly but I just figured he was supposed to be that way and that any pics I saw of him online were just whitened due to lighting etc. My Animated Jazz has the same issue but every single other white figure I have is perfectly fine.

    Eh... I'm not sure he was bright white to begin with. Mine came off-white from Japan the day it was released.

    Ramjet has always been off-white. When i got mine, i compared it to Universe Starscream, which is extremely white.

    Ramjet was never super white like Classic SS or Generations Drift. Both Uni and Henkei versions were an off white colour.

    Bone white is not white at all. It's pale yellow.

    I think it's just an expression more than actual color. Yea bone-white does not make sense when describing pure white.

    Milky White and Crisp. And Mine's loose and on display in light all the time.

    I use those energy efficient light bulbs with the spiral.
