Hi everyone, Boba Fettuccini here. I'm relatively new. I've been active on Toyark for about a year, but decided to head over here as well to get information from real hardcore fans. I found the Tai Fong AM Radio robot at a store around here and managed to get it for under $1. I picked it up because I love old stereo equipment and thought a ghettoblaster Transformer was too cool to pass up. When I got home and did some research, I found out this is a desirable knockoff bot due to the fact it was actually a working AM radio. Unfortunately, its previous owner gutted it. The radio is no longer inside. Now here comes the big question: As collectors, would you rather buy this as is - moderate condition, unaltered, but missing pieces, or would you be more interested in it restored to new functionality? And I don't mean wiring in a new AM radio, I'm actually thinking of going head on, all the way and modifying it to house a small MP3 player. I know some collectors would rather keep things in their original state, even if damaged, while some people would be more interested in having something repurposed. so I just thought I'd ask and get some opinions... transforming MP3 player, y/n?
