    It's garbage. I'll take it off your hands for you. :D 


    Seriously though, congrats. That's a nice little TF oddity you've got there.

    Very nice find! It's a good piece of G1 memorabilia, the kind you simply can't find online very often.

    Keep it,you don't know how much its worth at the moment and if you have some kind of Financial crisis you can sell it for lots of money.

    realistically it's only worth what somebody will pay for it. it's not like he's uncovered a previously undiscovered mint gold chrome Lucky Draw Optimus Primal or anything. it's a fairly cheaply made mass-produced quartz wallclock, can't see it going for more than $20-$30 on ebay unless he can find somebody who simply has to have it at all costs. even then it's not financial parachute territory.

    obviously i could be entirely wrong (and it's be really cool if he's struck wallclock gold there, certainly check clock collector prices too) but it's easy to over estimate the value of memorabilia - particularly licensed stuff that isn't an original Hasbro/Takara product.

    which isn't to say it's a pretty damned funky find, nice one OP great luck there!

    I've got one of those. :) 

    [​IMG]

    'Made In Britain'. Not often you see that (on a Transformers product) these days.
    As for additional info, I've no idea past what you've already found on the clock yourself. I'll have a looksee though.

    *searches*
    Not easy to search for as I keep getting stuff on other Transformers clocks (including countdowns to BayFormers movies) or 'House Martin' gives me links to bird sites.
    This is the only other real mention I could see, which unfortunately doesn't add anything new:
    http://tfwiki.net/~fortmax/artifacts/artifacts.html#other
    Ebay really only throws up BayFormers clocks or some cheapo-looking thing with Dreamwave artwork.

    It looks like House Martin also made clocks for other shows like Airwolf, so maybe follwoing that kind of thing might lead to more info about the company and the TF clock.

    meh, just keep it dude.

    If you had some old school TF blankets and sheets and a lamp(which i know they made)

    you could totally redo your bedroom to be done in TF styled theme like back in the 80's :D
