    Hi all,

    I was just about to put some Transformers on ebay to sell (unwillingly, it must be said) and noticed that Action Master Bombshell is somewhat sought after. I have one version of him, he's complete with Tech Specs and Power Plan, and wondered how much he's worth. Could someone give me some advice on this? It would be much appreciated. I've uploaded a pic, hopefully it'll help you to help me!

    Many thanks for your help!

    Only recent record i can find on eBay is a loose complete one that went for $100.


    Some might say eBay prices are 'jacked up' but since it tends to be the selling place of choice for TFs, where they do sell, it's probably a good indicator.


    Edit: The one on eBay had some paint wear, a broken(repaired) peg on the gun, some loose joints. So i might suggest UPWARDS of $100.

    Hope you make some good coin.

    I remember buying AM Bombshell from a market here way back when for 99p along with a couple of others I don't think ever saw official release here. They were on non-English language cards though. Bombshell was named 'Prudox' or something. At 99p each I really wish I'd bought more than just one of each at the time since the market guy selling had several boxes full of them.

    Hasbro UK did release it, AM Tracks, Sideswipe, and the others.

    Not sure how many shops stocked them though....i distinctly remember the original Action Masters hitting deep discount pretty sharpish.

    I know Tracks and Sideswipe got release here because I bought them in Beatties. Didn't know Bombshell had too though as I never saw one in the wild apart from on this market find. Or the other two pictured in the photo below.

    Just had a quick dig about in my TF Collection Photo Log and this was the only picture I could find containing the tech specs of the three I got from the market. Were all three of those released in the UK?
    Pardon the quality - I had to blow up and crop part of a larger picture:

    Bombshell is definitely a UK release (I think I may have bought him from Beatties too). Want me to upload a pic of his tech specs?

    Nah, that's okay. I believe you. :) 

    But to find he did make it to the UK officially I've learnt something new today after all these years. :D 

    And apologies to the OP for derailing his thread.

    you might get more hits on your bombshell if you put "transformers" in the title of the auction.

    Yep I got Bombshell, Tracks, Sideswipe, Powerflash, Take-Off and Charger, all from TRU back in the day. Still have them, along with the card backs. Although there was a promotion for some sort of glow in the dark poster at the time so the cards all have a big green sticker slapped over the nice artwork on the front :banghead:

    Bombshell is a great toy, arguably the best of that set of six (I still need to find Powerflash and Take-Off though). I wish you well with your sale, you should get a VERY good price for that one.
