    I was born in ’85, so I was too young to remember the G1 toys, but I grew up with the G2 toys, and boy did I love them! Which was why I’m so glad that G2 is finally getting some updated love!

    Let’s start with the box. Gorgeous G2 styling, with a modern twist (the character artwork.

    Open it and you see the typical FunPub packaging. 2-piece box with foam insert, housing the main event!

    Jet mode is just beautiful. The colors are bright, and clash with each other very nicely! Some of the details are a little sloppy when you take a CLOSE look, but when viewing him from about 12” from your face, he looks VERY nice. Nosecone IS rubber, though I worry in what shape it will be in, 5 years from now.

    Robot mode looks even better than the preliminary image FunPub released. Once again, the bright colors clash with each other very nicely. There are A LOT of paint, tampo’d graphics, and CHROME sticker details, making this figure worth the money he was selling for.

    Overall, I’m VERY happy that I got this figure. Makes a GREAT addition to your seeker army, and as a bonus, looks FANTASTIC with Shattered Glass Thundercracker!

    I pray there is a second run of these. I couldn't spend the money right before botcon.

    It does look really nice. Not for what they were asking for it, for me personally. But it does look great.

    Looks great, for such an acquired taste. He'll look nice next to Breakdown and Starscream. Maybe I should buy a Classics Megatron since his colors work so well with the G2 color pallette. Thanks for the pics LatinJem777!

    Looks great. Not a fan of the stickers. Wish it was all tampoed.

    Got mine today as well, no shipping notice. He is fantastic looking in person and goes great with he Botcon 2010 toys. He looks particularly nice next to Doublepunch and G2 Breakdown.

    No AM thundercracker to go with mine, but eh, them is the breaks. I am not as into SG as I am G2 anyways.

    But yes, super awesome fig.

    I hate to admit I only just noticed that he's Shattered Glass Thundercracker and not AM Thundercracker meaning he's a good guy not an 'Evil Decepticon'.

    They could have done with smaller logos and leaving off the vent 'stickers' in my view. Perhaps CHMS can be pursuaded to make the logo's a bit smaller on theirs.

    SG was just the excuse to release him with Galvatron. He's on my 2010 shelf and looks great. Stuck a reprolabel on there just because, though the red faction symbol wasn't really bothering me all that much to be honest.

    I know that was off topic, so to reiterate, I wish G2 Ramjet didn't go up right before botcon because then I would have bought him. Or that he didnt sell out because then I would have bought him at botcon like I did with Cheetor...
