    I bought the walmart exclusive ramjet with the limited edition card. It came today, and I am wondering if I should take him out of his packaging and display him, or leave him in his box to display. Will he be worth money someday since he's an exclusive?

    I honestly doubt he'll be worth much. Its a movie toy so take the title "limited edition" with a grain of salt.
    I would personally open it.

    i would open and enjoy...i don't think you will get a whole lot more than retail unless there is someone specifically and desparately searching for him...

    There's a WalMart near where I work that still has these on the shelves at $22. Not really all that rare.

    And the homage to G1 Ramjet is a lot easier to see when his wings are on display in jet mode instead of behind his back in robot mode.

    I don't think it'll ever go for much more than it's original price. Last summer I bought the 07 movie Thundercracker version of this mold MISB for $28 shipped. Open it and enjoy it. I have all three G1 seekers of this mold; the throw back paint jobs are awesome on these guys.

    I originally was going to leave them in the package,but since I got both Skywarp and Ramjet for $9.00 each,I decided to open them up.They seemed to be shelf-warming at a lot of stores so I don't think they'll hold much value.

    in the UK it was very common more common in some stores then the regular stuff their was a point that my store had 20 or so just piled up on top of the shelf units so its by no means rare. Saying that if you've got that toy in different colours you might as well keep it boxed up
