Identity check for an old Transformer

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.

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
