    Every generation of Transformers has that hard-to-find, super-rare piece. Generation 1 has the packaging variants for the Targetmasters and test-market giftsets, Generaiton 2 had the unreleased G2 Stunticons and Protectobots, so it's only fitting that Beast Wars has one of its own - Green Ramulus.

    The figure was itself was created all the way to the testing phase, with only four known figures existing. Now you can have a chance to own a rare piece of the Beast Wars collection.

    Check out the auction!

    Eh, this is one of those figures that's rare JUST because it's rare, not because of it's quality. I'll pass, but I can imagine some BW fans having a fit over this. :ev:

    When the only way I knew about this figure was from Fred's variant site, as I wasn't following the Botcon stuff then, I remember actually putting the green Ramulus on my want list.

    ...can't say I have any plans of fulfilling that years-old want, LOL.

    In order to be accurate.......

    This toy is not from our collection. Jon is selling it on behalf of someone else, who shall remain anonymous.

    Happy bidding,

    Karl

    That doesn't look near as bad as I imagined. I'd totally pick that up if it wasn't, y'know, over $200...

    I think it looks great. much better than either of the released ramulus figures, even though the universe figure was based on it.

    the gold chrome is just sooooo nice.

    Man. Ever since Wreckers #1 back in '01, I've wanted a Green Ramulus toy.

    I liked the toy in those colors so much, that I hated when his colors were changed in Wreckers #2.

    Just like you ... when I found out what it was and it's ubber-rare-next-to-impossible status, I had to take him out of my want list.

    But now ... I gotta say I'm actually considering the auction. Luckily it'll be too rich for me. :( 

    Hmm ... any one we know? ;)

    That looks fairly good, one of the molds I hadn't considered before. Maybe I'll pick up one of the released ones.

    Very nice prize. If I had the cash I'd plunk it down stat, as its far more valuable than any lucky draw to me. At least it isn't a Ravage variant though...then I'd be forced to buy it o.o


    EDIT- Ooooh... look at all the other TF artifacts the seller listed. Its like a Raksha yard sale /drool

    Nice to see some rare BW stuff pop up from time to time. Though, I personally am not a fan of those colors on Ramulus. Good luck to those bidding.

    Very cool. The mold isn't the best of the TM2 BWs, but those colors really rock.
