    I bought this at a flea market on Saturday for a quarter and I can't figure out what transformer is goes to. The only TF they had left was a Crossovers Darth Vader, so I'm in the dark. It looks really familiar...

    I believe that it is from DLX Unicron

    I wanna say it looks like the missile from Armada Superpants Prime's missile launcher (the one in the supermode leg's knee), but I don't recall any version of that mold coming with a clear red missile...

    They actually look nothing alike.

    Nope.

    I can't find it anywhere, not even one of the same mold. It is possible it isn't a TF missile, so keep that in mind.

    I have been, but it looks so much like a TF missile that it probably isn't a coincidence. I'm betting it's a Hasbro missile at least.

    I'm going to openly speculate for a moment:

    -I'm 90% sure it's a Hasbro TF missile judging by the size and familiar color. I could be wrong, but I don't know of another line with similar projectiles.

    -It would be post-Armada and maybe post-Energon, because the insertion end is an axle and not a half-axle.

    -The shortness of the catch tab was common post-Cybertron.


    I'm guessing its figure was made within the past 3-4 years if that helps.

    I had an "Ah-hah!" moment when I thought of that earlier, but it doesn't match.

    I don't think it's from a Megatron. At least, not from a ROTF, Animated, or Classics Megatron.

    That was my thought also, but I checked and it isn't. Grimlock's has more detail to it.

    I can't find a good enough search for it.

    I've seen this missile before. I don't know where or when. I just know I've seen it. To the accessories drawer!

    It's not Brawl either. Just for fun I decided to check TFU for it and after looking through the Unicron Trilogy, Animated, Movie Trilogy, and Classics I can't find anything. I may have missed a few figures though.

    Brawl's missile was molded to look like a flamey energy thingy. It's not brawl.

    I'd have to check, but it could be from the Beast Machines Ultra Class Jetstorm. Maybe?
