    So why exactly did you bother posting? You have no interest in any of this, and nobody really cares that you have no interest. So why post anything? Seriously... pointless

    Heres a review if anybody missed it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZaLhVcHq1w

    Always prefer a good japanese review to english. Id rather not be swayed by some douchebags opinion

    this. Japanese collectors and reviews seem very fair and objective.

    As much as I want this guy, he's not worth the near $200 price tag. No way is he worth nearly the same price of Magnus or Star Saber especially with how often this mould has been used. You can't really make the point that they're "recouping costs" at this point. $100, sure. That would be ideal. Damn. No matter how much I want this, though, I can't justify the price to myself.

    This guy looks horrible in robot mode in basically all those pics. Maybe some better poses will help him out? Alt mode looks stellar though! He'll stay that way in my case.

    Same. I think waiting to see if jinboa will add the coneheads to their new cheap seekers will be worth a peek

    Man, this thing is fugly and the proportions seem all types of messed up.

    This is definitely one of those MPs that years down the line we will want remade.

    Easy pass at $200.

    Cool to see in hand pictures and the first reviews. I like most of what I see and look forward to having Ramjet on the shelf in the now-vacant iGear spot.

    Still, there are some thing I wish they had done differently. The nosecone hanging at his arse looks wrong. From the looks of the review this could've been solved by removing that connecting bridge behind the head (like iGear did and which hinders the head transformation on the regular seekers). This would've enabble the nosecone to move up higher. Also wished the kneepads could do something in altmode (perhaps turn around) because they are very much present in altmode and ruin the best underside of a jet in existence.

    I'm glad to see he can have toy like weapons, albeit a bit oversized.

    But I'm not too crazy about the use of the black. Seeing him next to the Henkei I must admit that I like the Henkei grey better.

    I hope all goes well with tenso. My past track record of screwing things up prevented me from using them. Maybe I will get my courage up for Thrust and Dirge LOL!

    I'll say this: it does a tremendous job of recreating the cartoon aesthetics, and I like how the conehead works for him. The wing transformation itself looks really nice, and the missile pods interact with the weapons pretty cleverly.

    Sadly, I hate the cartoon aesthestics; I really wish Dery et al had mimicked the original Seeker trio's bodies and just given them coneheads, because I'm not a fan of their kneepads :/ If I ever get back into MPs I'll probably skip out on Ramjet.

    I think he looks great. The face is the only thing that's throwing me off a little, however it's not enough to make me not want it for sure.

    I look forward to adding to my collection. I'm going to have to redo my MP displays to get him, Shockwave and Ratchet in them!

    I was concerned when I saw the initial in hand images but the video has removed some of those concerns... I still find the face too big but that's what it looked like in the cartoon...

    I'm at a complete loss as to how anyone who claims to collect/love Masterpieces could remotely have a problem with this figure BECAUSE it's so spot-on toon accurate (aka pretty much THE enture point of the whole line since MP-10). Yes, Ramjet is chunky with big proportions... because that's what he (and the other Cones) was.

    Once again, a huge portion of this fandom and their peanut gallery critiques just confounds me.

    You gotta try harder.

    When it comes to MP11, the Seller had to pay me USD $55 in order to make me own that piece. :p
