    I found a computron on the net; however he is loose, and missing one of lightspeeds small guns. But the figure appears to be overall nice condition.

    What is the maximum you would pay for him? Because I really want a computron, but I don't want to overpay.

    It was around that time (1987) that hasbro/takara phased out the rubsigns.

    Look for the copyright info:

    On the inside of Scattorshot's right leg.

    On Lightspeed's back.

    On the sides of Nosecone's legs, behind the knee.

    On Strafe's wings.

    And on Afterburner, that part on the back of his legs that has the flip-out connector.

    I wonder if the one on there is a KO, I do remember hearing about a "living robot" KO that looked, felt, and was packaged almost identically as the giftset.

    Right now he is at about 35$ usd with 15$ usd shipping. How much higher should I go?

    did I mention that the item is in Australia? "if that means anything XD"

    You must had gotten one of those "Living Robot" clones, its supposidly one of the best ones. The quality is as top notch as takara's and it even came in the giftset box to XD "the KO one said Living Robot instead of transformers though"

    yep, thats the one i've got. its well built and good quality plastic. there are no rubsigns and no paint on the faces of the individual robots.
