    I was interested in Ramjet, but I'm not paying $30 for the first Movie Starscream even if it's in a better paint scheme. That money is better spent on the Energon combiner repaints IMO, which is 6 figures in all (5 component bots, one combiner)

    I like the looks of both ROTF Skywarp and Ramjet. But I am surprise about the $29.99 price.

    Why couldn't they use the new SS mold for Ramjet and Skywarp?

    A total waste imo. They should have used the new SS mold.

    I'm sure Hasbro does it this way to get rid of the old mold stock they still had left over.

    Probably so they could cash in on the old SS mold, and in SW's case the remolded head as well.

    Considering these are in colors not done before, they are an all new run of the mold, not old stock.

    So that they would match Starscream and Thundercracker maybe?
