    This is the first time I have seen this. Anyone know much about it & what it would usually go for? Any input would be great.

    I have only seen it once, at a Japanese table at Botcon so I would have to say it's rare. Alphie's the expert though.

    These things I believe were part of the jr line, theres tons of stuff you will never ever see again, I have only seen this one other time listed on yahoojapan and it went for 1000 yen or $10usd most of this stuff does not sell very well at all.

    I think you're right, zartan...

    This is from the 1986 or 1987 Takara line. While I never had this particular set, I had the Metroplex one, which came with nearly the same style of items (the gun, though different, decoys, faction badge, etc.).

    These things are pretty rare and could command around $100 bucks a few years ago... I would imagine much more now.

    It's a target set, the Megatron actually has little pellets you can shoot at the rubber targets and disks. Pretty rare especially with all the pieces. I have one, but it's not complete. Very interesting idea and I believe it's from the Jr line, but I could be wrong. Too late to think right now. :lol

    From the photograph, it seems that the set includes a non-transforming representation of Megatron in gun mode.

    One can use the Megatron gun to fire pellets at Autobot discs, decoys, and the ultimate target- Optimus Prime/Convoy.
