    It was lunch time. Sometimes priorities gotta run concurrent :lol 

    Mine has the issue and I can see where the paint rubbed on the underside of the box. While I wish mine didn't have these issues, it's easily overlooked. the rubbed spots blend in with light reflection. But to say they don't give a shit when FSS figures ship with the foam "cover" over the figures is, well... not the case IMO. I'm perplexed as to why Ramjet didn't ship this way, but I display in robot mode and I'm not worried about resale value; so I'm not as bummed as most. Although I totally see why people are upset.

    Oh cool! I haven't received an email yet, but I can't wait until the third figure gets here, for sure!

    Can't wait to get mine.

    I wrote the bio and created his tech specs for this figure. :)

    I must have missed the cut off for this. I got TFSS 4.0 on the day it went live...

    If ANYONE doesn't want theirs, let me know... I've wanted this since I saw the starscream come out.

    Getting TFSS 4.0 (at any time) wouldn't have anything to do with getting this figure.

    Just gone mine today!

    I love him, and the balljoint makes the head so expressive.

    TBH....I like this Ramjet over his original G1 version.

    That would have been the relevant thing to mention, then.

    By that reasoning, you bought a membership in late August, 2015, and thus were a member on the cut-off date in March 2016. You should therefore be getting a Ramjet figure.

    But two points:
    1. Just because you haven't gotten your figure yet doesn't mean you won't. Mine hasn't arrived either. It's just the first day we're hearing of this.
    2. You could have ordered 4.0 on the previous year's membership. You don't have to buy a membership at that same time. In fact, most people don't. That's why I say that mentioning the membership would have been the relevant point. Buying TFSS 4.0 means nothing regarding Ramjet.

    I purchased a third class mail membership last year. Wondering if that'll mean I get Ramjet closer to the end of the month like the Club Magazine has typically arrived?

    Honestly, it makes little difference, at least in regard to when these are mailed out. It does mean typically slower transit, but that's up to your local Post Office. A third class mail person in another community will have a very different experience from your own. Indeed, it's probable that some of the folks who've already reported getting theirs are third class mail folks, although I don't know this for a fact.

    I have third-class membership and my Ramjet came today. It probably has more to do with where you are in the world relative to Fort Worth.

    Sorry, but the headline is wrong. Starscream was a Maxcon (Mega), not an Ultra.

    Yay! Just got Ramjet, surprisingly my second only Ramjet... My first was the G2 Ramjet the club put out years ago.

    Might order Skywarp now if they put him up for order.

    Got mine. He has the rubbed off paint on top, too. I'm not super pissed, but I'm kinda mad that the Club, in its waning days, is still making these bush-league mistakes. I'm hoping that they get it together so Skywarp doesn't include the same damage.

    He looks pretty good next to his other Universe '03 brethren.

    also with a different head, he could work well as Pharma.

    If that were true I'd have mine already. I'm only about two hours away form Fort Worth.

    My Ramjet came today, and same as the others, paint rub. It's weird given how preventable this was - either include the foam cover like they've been doing for TFSS figures, or don't use that extra foam under the nosecone that elevates the upper part of the jet for no reason I can discern?

    Yeah... that's why my own response to Ragnar didn't mention Fort Worth. The fact is, these things pop up here and there all over the place, without obvious pattern for 1st-vs-3rd class nor geography.
