    Who is this, and what do you know about him? I have seen this figure before, but its origins escape me right now. Your help is always appreciated.

    Thanks to Orion Prime. This is a Phantom that was made by Four Star under their Transistors line. It came in Black, White, and Red. It has the G1 seeker body mold with a tweaked cockpit and foot design, and completely different wing mold. I remember i had the Blue and grey Condor cassette that this company made when I was a kid. Its pretty cool. Thanks again guys.

    yeah, it does look like the 4 Star wannabe Seeker (wonders if a compay would try that with the Classics Seekers or the Movie jets)

    You know as well as I do, what people ask, and what they get are sometimes two completely different things. In your much respected opinion, what do you think its worth?

    For yours, as it is now and assuming it's unbroken, I can only guess a ballpark estimate of around $50-$60. That said, I think I've seen complete ones go for around $100.

    Actually they are made from very durable plastic on par with the g1 seekers, the only weak point they seem to have is the nose cone falls off a bit easy.

    very nice find, the black one is the most common, but still sells for about 60-75 complete (50 if its missing the landing gear and or fists)

    i'm personally still looking for parts to complete my white one, and I beleive the grey one has only been spotted in the uk.

    another note, theres two varients to it, one has a jetfire face and larger feet, and the other has the normal screamer face and feet (the second may just be a bootleg of the bootleg)

    overall good find :)
