Identity check for an old Transformer

If its about Transformers, the toys, it's fair game.

Identity check for an old Transformer

Postby Tickolas » Mon Apr 27, 2015 1:12 pm

Hey all!

So I found this odd variant of Dreadwind in a box in the attic. Probably bought him at a flea market in my collecting days. I figured it was a knockoff, but it says 1987 HASBRO and 1987 TAKARA below his chest emblem.

As near as I can figure this is Buster from Masterforce. If so, how he ended up at a flea market in Sweden is probably quite a story in and off itself. =)

Can anyone give me a positive ID?

Yeah, that's Buster.

As for how he ended up there, someone must've bought and/or imported him at some point and fell into the hands of someone in that country.

I myself recently picked up a Japanese Beast Wars Neo Heinrad figure from an anime store in the next town over across the bay.
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Heh, I guess that's the likely scenario =) Thanks for the ID! So, what kind of price might this guy fetch? He's got loose joints, paint chipping, sticker wear and his wing is out of alignment with its track. The works, really. Must've been well loved by his owner(s)! XD
