This might be the most used/repainted mold yet in Transformers history!
I wouldn't say they're used that much.
And if they are used that much, it is a pretty cool mold, in their defense.
They're definitely used that much. Check out the picture that I posted in my previous post.

Can anyone confirm that? I'd also rule out flat reissues. They put out G1 Optimus prime every couple years. :-p Talking about repaints and redecos here.
Maybe Bruticus comes in a close second, maybe? Hmmmmm.
Bruticus doesn't come close (though it's in the top 10).
I own 20 official Hasbro and Takara Tomy uses of the Starscream/Ramjet mold. Would love to get Sunstorm out of all of this one day.
If they had been really smart with this set, they would have done a cross set where it was Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp paired up with 3 new Seekers and a separate set with Ramjet, Dirge and Thrust along with Sunstorm and 2 others.
I can't help but think that Sunstorm would be a PERFECT choice for the Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service. Make it happen TCC!
