I often go through my old group of old, dumb robots. I don't know where they all came from, but I've got quite a few. Amidst them I often find a G1 TF, and that salvage and take downstairs to join my collection of TF's. Well I recently found, along with a G1 Perceptor, a strange Jet like bot.

 

The mark on the back says © TAKARA 1980, 1984 TAIWAN

 

Usually if I ever find a bot that says Takara or Hasbro that means I've found one of my old TF's!

 

However, this is a weird one. It doesn't really transform, but it looks kind of like a Decepticon Jet. It's got the wings coming off of his arms and little gun tips on his wrists..like Starscream or his fellows. On one of his legs an Autobot rub-sign is there, but that might have been added to him incorrectly by some dumb little kid (i wonder who that could have been :roll ). The only real transformation its got is that his legs bend up and cover his body. He has wheels on his back, and if you pull the "transformed" guy backward, he rolls forward, then his legs pop back open, into position. It's pretty dumb...but it is made by Takara, so it might be a TF (and therefore belongs in my collection) I was wondering if anyone knows who he is. I was thinking he might be a Powerdasher, since there is a powerdasher Jet, but I don't know what a powerdasher is, so I'm probably wrong.

 

Anyone got any info that could help me?
