Default Optimus Prime toothbrush Now with pix

I was helping clean some old stuff out of my parents' house this weekend and found what appears to be a forgotten Christmas/birthday gift. A Hasbro brand Optimus Prime toothbrush in its unopened box. The box is a little aged, has some grime on the front that I can clean off, and has a few pieces of tape on the edges that maybe a result of packaging with other brushes. I cannot find any mention of a product like this anywhere on the internet, not even eBay. It'* got a base, two brushes, a cup, and the Optimus Prime brush holder. I takes 4 AA batteries, but I don't know what it does. Maybe play some music or has some sound bytes, I don't know.

Any idea what something like this could be worth to a collector? It'* gotta be around 20 years old.

30 min of searching left me with nothing more than a few text based references...

That'* a pretty cool find. I bet it would be worth a lot since none of us can find any info on it (as in rare)...
