    You learn something new (and stupid) every day!

    One time a few years back, a friend of mine (another child of the 80s) gave me this robot head piece; he had gotten it in a bag of junk from a Thrift store and said he thought it looked like some kind of Robotech thing. Indeed, he was correct.

    It was a perfectly intact, 1:1 scale jetfire/valkyrie head, molded in nice solid red plastic, and attached to strange little red plate. Which I thought was goofy and all, but I just assumed it was part of some long dismembered old bootleg Valkyrie toy. It's been sitting in my parts drawer for years, as a weird novelty.

    Today I was idly browsing some Four Star bootleg photos when I stumbled across this guy:

    Turns out, I have his head!

    I don't have, never had, and never will have the rest of his body parts, but it's just one of those extremely weird, kinda cool coincidences...

    Do you still have that head?

    I'd buy or trade you for it.
