    Looks like the green repaint of "Wheels" from the Convertors line, which was a tiny version of a Mugen Calibur from Dorvack, which was also the same design that was later repurposed as Roadbuster in Transformers. This robot gets around. :lol 

    Counter-X > Convertors >> Wheels

    I'm sure I've got one of those somewhere. He stood in for my Roadbuster for a long time. Not seen it for ages though so I hope it's not wandered out of my collection somehow and gotten lost. I hate it when stuff seemingly vanishes.

    this one isn't falling apart, which is good. looks like its missing some pieces though. hopefully some fan of Roadbuster will want it later.

    Good old Convertors Wheels. I've actually been looking for one of those for a while but they never seem to turn up on Ebay. I have no idea what its value is - probably more than what I'd want to pay. :)

    Based on the MOSC sample on ebay, it's only missing its gun. Rough number I'd put on it is $15-20, maybe $25-35 if it were complete, depending on condition. That, of course, is working on the assumption that the MOSC sample is priced too high, which I believe it is.
