And why the heck has no-one mentioned the Robotech stuff? I still have a Zentreadi warrior action figure somewhere in the garage. I think I might have one of the transforming aircraft, but I'm not sure whether mine is a Robotech piece or a Transformer. Starfire was just a recycled Battloid, and the toy had very few changes made to make it into Starfire.
I know that one. And if it is in real good shape, with all its components, it should bring a big sum of money. As for the Robotech stuff....I still have much of the Comico first-series comics (Macross mainly, but some Masters and Invid), most of the Dark Horse pre-Macross series comics (right after the SDF-1 crashed on Earth and the Zentradi trip to earth), and some of the post-Invid war series. And a complete original trading card set of the Macross series. And the Palladium RPGs. God I was such a dweeb.

If memory serves correctly, back during that time there were some off-shoot transforming robots that were mostly plastic (kinda like what you would find at Big Lots today) but I had two of them that were cool as hell. One of them was this green locomotive....and the other was this spaceship, which many years later I came to realize the makers used the SDF-1 as their model for this 'bot. I wish I still had that 'bot.

Who remembers Nerf Boomarang? I lost all the ones my parents got me...either ended up on the roof of the school or in a tree somewhere.
