Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.
This one's labeled "MR-18" "Bandai" "1983" "Macau" and it measures about 4 1/2" as the flatbed. I can't seem to find it on the site. Can anyone help?

That's because he's technically not a Transformer. Back then the Gobots property wasn't part of the Transformers Brand.
In America it was owned by Tonka, and it was based off of a line of transforming Robots from Popy, a then subsidiary of Bandai.
It wasn't until 1991 that Hasbro bought out Tonka and all its intellectual properties including the Gobots.

I actually had him as a kid, and he was my replacement Optimus Prime as I was never able to get an actual Optimus as a kid.
He's got some diecast in the cab, and he is pretty cool.
