    That looks like the "Four Star" bootleg. They did some really cool remolds.

    I sold mine, unboxed, missing fists, missiles and landing gear with a broken leg for about $70 in the summer. That was a welcomed surprise.

    Why would you sell it? Or are you just seeing if you got a good deal? If that were mine, I would cherish it. It looks wonderful. And it almost fits into the 3rd War Within story arc, where Megatron came back to Cybertron with Seeker zombies that were enhanced with Quintesson upgrade cloning technology. They could make new parts for themselves on the fly(pun intended) to adapt to the foe they were facing.

    Would you be willing to post pics in robot mode?

    I was curious if anyone had seen it for sale before, and how much it went for. There are so many strange KO's out there that it would be impossible to catalog them all - I imagine many of them are long gone.

    It has never been taken out of the foam, so I don't know about robot mode pics.
    If I take it out and mess with it, then I will post pics.

    Got it

    I have this one and the white one that goes with it. They are nice, but the plastic is a little softer than the regular jets.

    A word of warning about how fragile this figure is, particularly concerned with handling while transforming:

    The nose cone, made of hard plastic, can sometimes be broken off - easily glued back since nothing "breaks" just comes apart really.

    I've found the legs are the MOST fragile part on the figure, Both of my last two of these had broken legs. The first one broke while I was transforming it, the second broke b/c the idiot eBay seller thought it a wonderful idea to ship Transformers without any packaging. grrr.....

    Lastly, the cockpit/nose section fits VERY tightly through that big gap while transforming. So much it feels like something could break (nothing did for me though), and at a minimum, leave scratches on the side of the jet.

    Be careful transforming it. Please. :)
