    Should this go in the "Recent Purchase" thread? From time to time I see Rework post a separate thread about flea market/yard sale finds so I wasn't sure.

    Anyways, I got everything in the attached pics below for $6 total. I'm pretty pumped about the Crosshairs because I have never had a Targetmaster figure before (and still technically don't since Pinpointer was nowhere to be found). I also happen to have a spare grill for G1 Prime so he will be fixed soon.

    I really have no clue about most of the stuff in the second pic. I know the blue gun in the upper left hand corner is for MW Megatron and the grey missles next to it belong to the G.I. Joe Stellar Stiletto vehicle but that's about it. I have no clue what the rest of it is. Probably junk. Anybody know?

    Now I need to find a Targetmaster Pinpointer...

    Well, the big drill tail thing on the right is from the Power Rangers Dragonzord, and while I have no idea what it is, the sword with the 3 spikes on one side looks hella cool.

    420 buy parts erryday.



    That first aid might be a knockoff, looking at the plastic. Does it seem flimsy or light at all?


    The chestpiece is from Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad's Draco.

    I am pretty sure that raygun and sword in the second row come from Ninja Turtles Outer Space Raphael.

    I think that boombox gun is also from TMNT, couldnt tell you who.

    The red piece with the blue segments looks like it came off a motorcycle, the M.A.S.K. Vortex (or whatever the ATV was called) maybe?

    The little red guy looks like an Air Warrior.

    There's some glare on the skiis, maybe from GI Joe though? Same with the white first aid / computer backpack on the left. Can you show the backs of those white backpack pieces?

    The red frame thing looks like it housed a cannon. Playmobil maybe? Or possibly pirate LEGO? Could also be from Air Warriors, given it looks like it has places for rope to attach and such.


    Can you find any makers marks on any of the pieces still in question?

    I wasn't sure if the First Aid was a ko or not. It has a rub symbol and it also has a Hasbro stamp under the hood. Do knockoffs have rub symbols and/or Hasbro stamps?

    My First Aid looks like the one on the right in the picture below:

    [​IMG]

    But which one is the KO? The left one or the right one? I got the pic from the KO thread but it was unclear as to which one was the KO.

    As far as the rest of the stuff goes, I don't see any maker marks that I can tell.

    I attached more pics.

    So do you think the First Aid is a KO or real?

    What are Air Warriors? Google search is failing me right now.

    Any idea on the purple gun?

    Yep, the gun and sword come from the Spaceman Raph toy from the original TMNT line. The boombox comes from the Sewer Squirtin' Beachcomber Mike toy, I think.

    The two red pieces dead center are to an old Ronin Warriors action figure. The red piece with the blue is part of shoulder armor, while the the part to the left is a foot guard.

    The best way to tell would be to compare the First Aid you have to an equivalent G1 figure, i.e. another Protectobot, a Combaticon, Stunticon or Aerialbot. The KO plastic feels a lot cheaper and thinner, also the figure won't "feel" quite right during the transformation.

    The two wings with yellow stripes and the two grey/silver missile pieces both go to a Mighty Ducks figure.

    His name is Nitro Fist Grin

    the one on the left is the ko cause at one time I had both(the ko had a blue face and no die cast).if the one you just got looks identical as the one you already have then my friend you have dubs of first aid! Nice come up on the haul.

    I get what you are saying but are there KO out there that have a Hasbro stamp on them? My First Aid has a Hasbro stamp (and rub sign).

    It looks legit to me. The back of my First Aid looks like yours. Mine is also stamped, but it includes a Takara stamp to the right where it's obviously been removed from the mold on yours.

    However, you have to figure that at a garage sale you're most likely to either find authentic G1 figures or the crappy dollar store knockoffs. Most people aren't going to have the high quality KOs of the past few years in a bin with other childhood toys. So, given that and what we know about your figure otherwise I'd again lean strongly towards it being legit.

    Most of the KO versions feel really, really flimsy. You'd be able to tell pretty easily.

    That grey legpiece is from another Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad set, the Xenon set I'm pretty sure. The drill next to it may also be from the same set, but from a different "zord".

    Also, I was wrong in the previous post, the red guy isn't from air warriors (which was actually called Air Raiders). Maybe ZOIDS, but those guys were usually chromed.

    The red frame is definitely from a playmobil cannon

    Is this that white jetpack in the centre? Comes from GI Joe Star Force.

    That would be correct. As well as the head/chest/armor thing to the right of it. That's also from SSSS.

    Nice score. Crosshairs is an excellent figure.

    Great robot and vehicle mode.
