    I bought this on Ebay because it was cool. I have no idea what it is though. Any idea?

    That's just what it is. It was sold by itself in a box or maybe on card. I have a picture of its packaging at home.

    I think it was part of one of those Optimus Prime halloween costumes they had back in the 80's.

    Paging alphie!

    I saw one of these at a flea market a few years ago, but the dealer wouldn't take less than $15 for it and I wouldn't have paid that much even if it was still mint-on-card.

    It comes with the "decepto-pack" halloween costume (I have a mib one on my shelf here)

    might have been packed in with other stuff too though, but deifnately part of the decepto-pack.
    (the optimus prime one has an autobot sticker on it btw)

    Thank you! Couldn't remember the name of it. The only thing I could recall was that there was a Prime one and a Megatron one (board member Ninety has this). Actually, come to think of it, was there a Starscream one as well?

    It looks like the gun Optimus is holding in the back-of-box battle art.

    They had a ton of these bagged sets on eBay a few years back. Super cheap, as well.

    Not sure if any are still floating around out there, though.

    I didn't even realize what I was buying when I did. I got it on Ebay for only $7 and it still works. The trigger clicks when you pull it and the tip lights up red.
