    My eyes! They burn!

    I actually kinda dig this more now knowing that it most likely isn't Grimlock! Yeah for obscure characters!

    The more I think about it, the more I hope this is indeed Cindersaur! Not only has the character grown on me in recent years, but it'll also be fun having a Firecon toy that doesn't suck!

    Can't let one fan have TOO much canon attached to them!

    Of course, if "Susan" had taken off, I would have a different opinion on the matter. :D

    That is, without a doubt, one of the most outstanding paint jobs I've ever seen one a figure. It's almost ice personified! :D  I'm really looking forward to this one! :D

    What happened to such clear fan favourites as G2 blue Grimlock or G2 purple/teal dirge? The more I look at this set, the more disappointed I am at the jarring colours that seem like they come from a kid's colouring contest.

    Some homages are not meant to be made.

    If you're going to call G2 Ramjet a "clear fan favorite", it undermines your point to screw up his name.

    If I'm not mistaken they specifically chose obscure characters with no modern homages or fiction, the whole point of this set is to take advantage of forgotten characters. G2 was never the point of the set, it was just meant to be G2 in spirit, which it clearly is.

    Wow, he's crazy. This mold is wacky. Pretty complex for a deluxe, yet the shortcomings (literally his arms) are a bummer.
