    why is Hasbro in love with Ramjet? he's the first Conehead in most new lines
    in classics he was the first with thrust and Dirge being exclusives
    in the movie he's the first in 2 lines with no clue on the other 2 coming out
    in legends of cybertron he was the first figure *but a con figure* with Thrust being in the Target 5 pack with yet another Ramjet and Dirge getting a V-class figure out of the mold

    I'd love to see Universe Dirge and Thrust, would be hella awesome. Tired of seeing the other coneheads get passed over too.

    I hear you, out of all the seekers, including the original three, Thrust is my Favorite. I would def like more Thrust love.

    At least with Thrust, I'd imagine it's because of the association with the vtol wings of his, which would require a bit of remolding to get. I wish they'd do an updated non-exclusive version of him though, always my favorite seeker back in the day...

    I'm surprised... a thread about why Ramjet is apparently so popular, and no mention of toast.. yet the two must be related in some way...

    Yeah, the reason Ramjet is popular is because he likes toast.

    We JUST got a Universe Dirge in the Voyager scale and we JUST got a Universe Thrust as a Robot Hero (the first conehead robot hero mind you).

    Bingo, I was going to say that too, Dirge got his reissue before Ramjet and Thrust. I'd love to see a Ramjet/Thrust twopack like they did for Thundercracker and Skywarp.

    And I am currently substituting the Cybertron Starscream that came with Vector Prime in the TRU 2-pack as Universe Thrust. I love that mold! I really can't believe Hasbro hasn't used it more often.

    We still need the remaining seekers from the Classics Starscream mold however.
