    I just bought an Antex yellow Windcharger and I want to know when it was produced. Was it 1985? 1987? The early 90's? Different sites (tfu.info, tfwiki, The Toy Archive) are giving conflicting information and I just want to be sure.

    I've never heard of an Antex Windcharger, but here's all the Antex-manufactured items from the shmax.com database:

    Shmax.com: Results

    We have all this stuff down as being from 1985, if that helps.

    I've had a couple of Antex Minibots, green Cliffjumper and yellow Windcharger. The cards don't have a date on them I can see in my pics (I sold them on a while ago). I'd have posted pics but Photobucket is all virusy :( 

    I want to say 85, but can't back it up with a source though. Fred's is down unfortunately, there's a wealth of info on the South American Minibots there.

    Edit: Clicked the shmax link, scrolled down, here he is: http://www.shmax.com/product_details/2904/camaro_yellow_w_yellow_chest_sticker

    He's called 'Camaro' in Argentina.
