    As posted in the news thread there is one currently for sale on eBay. I just want to get a understanding of how rare the figure actually is. Would it be placed a green ramulus status or is there a large amount in the public?

    Wrong forum.

    I don't think it's Green Ramulus rare, but they are incredibly rare. I didn't know it existed until today.

    I'm eager to know, because I wonder if it is worth anything compared to a MOSC green ramulus

    It's certainly rare.

    I'm not sure if it's as rare as green Ramulas, but it's probably on the same teir.

    The green ram and the blue minor are about the same when it comes to rarity. This is the third example i have come across, and i own one. I have seen more green rams, but not much more.

    I heard of this many years ago, I forgot are they proto, or cancelled repaints?

    I don't think its a proto or a canceled repaint, just a fluke in a few production figures.

    Willing to bet it has a stupid high reserve so the seller can then just offer it to the highest bidder.

    Optimus minor is such a weak toy, he looks like a marmocet. When was the last time these figures were on ebay?

    I actually thought it was a great toy with a great transformation. One of the better transmetals, but thats just me.
