    Hey all,

    I need some help,back in the 80's I got a knock off of sorts from a store
    and I need help identifying it,and even help finding another one.Now from
    what I remember it was like this.

    1.Mostly red in color
    2.Was a space warship
    3.The bot mode was about 5" tall
    4.Its whole body folded out to become the spaceship
    5.I think it came on a cardback instead of a box,but not sure.
    6.Also think it was either sold at TG&Y or Gibsons.

    If any of you know anything about this let me know and will be most
    grateful.Thanks guys.

    I figured if it's a KO, then it would have to be based on something legit. Maybe the original just isn't red, but the site helps just in general.

    Unless the toy simply isn't based on TFs.
