    Looking for a toy to repurpose as Classics Ramjet. How much does this bugger usually go for?

    i think he goes for a decent amount, maybe in the 30 to 50 range...you'd be better off getting universe Dirge and repainting him...

    Ebay:
    What? Really? Why?...

    Galaxy Force Starscream is $60-75.

    Also...repainting that figure seems like an insane amount of work, cost, time, and problem considering you'd have to put white/grey on top of royal blue. Also, that toy has numerous parts with contact friction where any amount of added paint would be destroyed or inhibit transformation.

    I'm sorry, I just don't like these easy, 'just repaint this or that toy' answers to problems. How many awesome-sauce Thundercracker custom paint jobs did we see after BotCon 2007? Five? maybe? and what two that were actually comparible to the production version?


    Long story short, someone needs to just buy a Classics Ramjet or a Henkei Ramjet. $30 tops and bam, done.

    Yeah, Classics or Henkei Ramjet would be a better, and less time-consuming, fit for a Classics Ramjet.

    I did get Galaxy Force Starscream for about $40 from eBay a couple months ago, but I got lucky and caught an auction at the right time so I may have gotten mine more cheaply than some others go for.

    I'm going to make a guess that Sage o' G-fruit wants to make a Ramjet to fit in with Universe Dirge. He might have even repurposed the Starscream from the Toys "R" Us exclusive Starscream vs. Vector Prime set into Thrust.

    Um, obviously. There's no toy to make Ramjet at that scale that would match the others, maybe save the Armada TRU exclusive Ramjet. Try that if you want, I guess.

    Then what you do, you put those three with the four Titanium seekers and you've got a tetrajet squadron, maybe add in the Cybertron supreme and legends releases too.

    Yep, that's exactly it. I got the idea after purchasing my Target Dirge.

    So 40-60 range then? Thanks a lot. :D

    I think that what you're doing is more accurately called "re-purposing for Cybertron Ramjet"
