    This came into my posession. I know it's not a transformer, but I'd like to know what it is - if it even has a name, and what it might be worth. The batteries exploded inside it, and took the springs for the batteries with them.

    I think that's from the same pre-transformers line that Blaster was pulled from. It was never used for TF, much like some of those other gunformers.

    Thanks! What do you think it's worth? I don't really want it.

    I picked a loose one up at botcon for 5$ last year, seeing him the box lets me know i actually have his axe shoved in a bag of random micronauts!

    Like most collectible items, it's worth whatever a fan is willing to pay for it.

    I saw one in an antique mall a few years ago -- loose, no axe, but with working electronics -- with a price tag of $79. The vendor offered a 40% discount, but I couldn't justify paying that much for what I considered at the time to be an overpriced KO, although a vintage one.

    I posted a thread on it here:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans.../186997-1984-tai-fong-transforming-radio.html

    Another member sent me a PM offering to sell it for...I think it was $40 shipped, but I passed on it.

    Man, I had that back when I was a little guy. I'd love to track down another. Loved that bot.
