    Welcome to the farce, and I've always liked that toy. Its one of the few molds that even from the beginning struck me as something that works best as a Diaclone instead of being hornswoggled into a headless Ironhide/Ratchet, or at least from the moment I figured out why it looked like it did. However as far as how much its worth, I wouldn't even know where to start other than an ebay browse that'd probably wouldn't give the whole story. What you could do is start a new thread in the transformers toy discussion or we can report this topic to be moved there (I know it's not technically a "transformers" product & a staff member can probably correct me if I'm wrong here), but given the fanbase, it might be your best bet.

    There's also a topic called the "g1 Appreciation thread" or something of that nature that might be of help given again, the fanbase of people who frequent it.


    Also, this section (the collections showcase) is generally for people to post their collections in general (rather than single acquisitions), but you can always add to it in the future or make a new thread once you start doing that so that you can name it something like "Toystalker's plastic family" or whatever. I know the place can get confusing, but I think the layout in itself is set up very well, so the learning curve of sorts shouldn't be too long. :)

    Those Joustra Diaclones can be quite sought after.

    Value? Don't know TBH., but there are a few Diaclone experts around here. Hopefully one will chip in shortly.

    It's all good, and the transformers toy discussion would probably be the best place, at least from what I've seen around here. In either case, I'd imagine that your figure's condition would play a pretty positive role in terms of its value, as unfettered w/everything tends to equal money in our collecting world hah.

    ... and yep. I hope one of the smart people finds this too. :D

    I think I would have that sealed in a AFA case. The toy itself isn't much of anything(I have that one), but the box with awesome Joustra art is pristine and should be protected and showcased.
