    Interesting. The art is kinda vague around the wings, so it could be a repaint of G2 Ramjet, or maybe what G2 Dirge might've looked like.

    I dig the old school feel personally. Would have made a bland figure though.

    Apparently if they produced that one there would have been remolded missiles all over the place, he looks armed to the teeth, whoever he is... the wings remind me more of Thrust, we got a G2 Ramjet who didn't get that missile launcher remold to the wing sections, but Thrust's would have had the bulk to do it.

    Those are the same missile launchers that both Ramjet and Starscream came with in G2. There's no remolding necessary, they fit the original wing peg holes.

    Jazz and Sideswipe also shared "new" launchers, but theirs were actually just slight remolds of the Snow Serpent missile launcher from the GI Joe line.

    Awesome. Unreleased G1/G2 is a nice treat, I didn't think there was any left to be seen that survived. I like the old school artwork and a desert-colored seeker would have been great.

    That seller also has a G2 version of SLUDGE for sale. It's orange and blue!!! I missed Sludge in G2, but I don't think they would've been doing him many favors with that get up.

    for the record, the pose he's in, with the missle on his calf and all, is the same as Ramjet's G1 pose.


    I also agree with the guy who said it looks like movie Starscream's colors

    Great find.

    A desert camo seeker would be pretty sweet.

    I think this is probably one of the color schemes they were considering before they decided to go with the neon colors and have the Transformer's name written somewhere on the toy.

    Other way around :)  when G2 was cancelled they seemed to be leaning towards more millitary themed colors instead of the neons of early G2

    I would have loved to see the desert camo Ramjet and Night Attack Starscream actually see a full retail release :)
