    I think I've seen it before, but I have no idea where, nor what it is. Did you go on www.tfu.info and look through YELLOW things?

    Thanks for the help, unfortunately it did not come with the cannon or missiles when I got it, I'm glad to know what it is now though

    Three missiles actually. One in the cannon, the other two mounted on the posts on either side of the truck bed. He was one of the first TFs I can think of that concealed all his parts in vehicle mode, as well as one of the first that used lightpiped eyes. He's a real gem along with the other Turbomasters / Cannonmasters.

    I'm not sure how rare that one is since he was actually given a limited Japanese release (in a VS pack, I think they named him Fireroad or something like that), and I think he made it to Canada and Australia as well. But he is such a sweet design he is worth it purely for that reason alone.

    Which is slightly misleading, since he was actually one of the very last G1 toys, though I'll grant you this, he did get released in G2 packaging too.

    He's totally awesome just like the rest of the Turbomasters (don't bother with their lame Machine Wars counterparts). They have some of the most powerful and best missile launchers ever.

    I almost got him last week but the seller was being an a-hole. He was only willing to sell for four sets for over $200.
