Here’s the 2nd set of planes issued for the Transformers G1 – Thrust, Ramjet, and Dirge. I didn’t realize they call these the “Coneheads” because their heads are like cones (although I’ve kept their nose cones down as I like them better that way).
Anyway, I just picked these up today. I wasn’t originally a fan of these in the beginning as I liked the Autobot cars more but I had the original three planes from season 1 (see 3rd image – Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker) so I decided to get the next three (season 2) to complete the set. These were not re-issued as part of the reissue series in the early 2000’s.
Evidently, there is another plane from season 1 called Sunstreaker that I have seen online but I don’t recall him as a kid. I just found the sticker sheets for these planes for cheap and I’m hoping to get them soon as there are no stickers for the eyes, feet and wings so they look kind of barren at the moment. The person I bought them from didn’t put the stickers because he said that over time, the stickers would come off anyway.
