    OK, I'm a new guy here. Came here to find out stuff and if you want it, let me know! I have google searched PROHOTON Ind. Taiwan and all they come up with is a foreign languaged hit with a Ladybug Transformer figure.

    This is a YELLOW one, I don't even for sure know how to break it down to the smaller craft, perhaps a spaceship, jet object of some kind.

    Has wings, deployed, missing a decal off one of the legs..... Plastic.
    Dated 1985.

    I find it strange there is NO record of this object, anywhere.

    What is it? Offers considered.

    Some kind of KO Veritech fighter?

    Where are the Robotech guys to ID this? ;)

    I'm not an expert, but I believe it's a knockoff of a Convertors toy. STA: Convertors: Maladroids
    Try that. Looks like it might be a combination of Zark and Zardak.

    EDIT: It's actually featured (in picture form) on the Knockoff page.
    STA: Convertors: Knock-Offs

    In terms of value... $5? The original figures don't have much worth, so I can't see the knockoff being worth much unless you find a vintage KO buyer.

    Agreed, they actually made several different colors. Brown, gray, blue, and red are the most common. That one is of a rarer color but none the less worth about $5 or so IMO

    More elaboration on this yellow figure

    Turns out it functions as a pencil sharpner, too.

    In this picture the rear hatch/back plate has a top insert sharpner, that I spotted and removed yesterday for this picture!

    Hello Bertuit.
    I’m Jesse, I know it being more a little than a year, sins you posted a comment on TFW2005 looking for an answer, to I.D. a Taiwan K.O. of multiples K.O., the little plastic macross/robotech figure with white and yellow colors, that had a pencil sharpener on its back, I would like to know if maybe you still have it?
    I would really appreciate any responds back.
    Thanks
