    The Year is 1986 (I am 9 years old) and I see this commercial.
    Vintage 80's Commercial - Heinz H-57 Burger Blaster - YouTube
    Well after asking my mother and doing some stuff around the house. I finally earned enough money to order my burger blaster. My mom writes a check and drops it in the mail. One week passes then two then three. Then a month passes then two, then four. My Burger blaster never comes. (never did find out what happened) Fast forward to this past Saturday. Just by total chance I come across an ebay auction. I bid, I win and this arrived today...

    I doubt this is going to be worth alot of money but do you think I should apply this stickers? ( love the hotdog and burger kill stamps LOL)

    Wow that is a cool looking toy :) 

    It feels great to finally get that figure you wanted your whole life. I felt that way when I finally got a Dragonzord.

    I'd totally apply the stickers. I mean, normally I wouldn't really care, but for something that's alt mode is pretty much defined by its brand name I'd definitely be for it.

    Awesome! Never know that existed :) 

    You know that's what I'm gonna see from now on when I look at the Viper ships from Battlestar Galactica.

    Nice! I totally remember these... though only after your photo jogged my memory. I wanted one too, but never got one. Definitely one of those 80's oddities that capitalized on the success of transforming toys. Man, I love when I've forgotten something like this existed, and then someone posts it and the memory comes rushing back on a wave of nostalgia. Congrats on the purchase!
