    Post Nightbeat head assembly and Hi-Q Powermaster engine

    A long time ago, I lost these parts of my toys.

    Since I don't need to replace the entire toy, does anyone knowing and where if I can obtain these items independently:

    1. Muzzle Headmaster unit (Nightbeat).
    2. Nightbeat Bucket Seat.
    3. Nightbeat Bucket Seat head antenna/hood guns.
    4. Hi-Q Powermaster Engine for Optimus Prime.

    Ebay is your best bet. Transformerland is another option. Put up a wanted thread here and on TFW.

    I am confused, doesn't this thread count as a wanted to buy thread?




    I hope TFW doesn't mean the TFW2005 forum, I stopped going there after one of their admins lost their objectivity and went power mad because of a personal obsession relating to gaming.

    I think what Trent is getting at is there is probably a low chance of finding those here so to cover all of your bases those other options will have a higher chance of coming through.

    I check TransformerLand semi-regularly.

    Ebay I'm uncertain about because it keeps having problems whenever I try to shop there and pay for what I want.

    TFW2005 I avoid because of the power abuse incident, I don't trust that forum anymore, so regardless of how helpful it may be, the risk just isn't worth it.

    there are other international forums as well, Seibertron or Tformers. When you're looking for stuff that's a little hard to come by, it's certainly worth looking in as many places as possible.

    I think there is a UK based forum that's pretty big as well, but I'm not sure of it's name/location on the webs.
    Wheeljacks lab have a lot of stuff, but they do tend to be on the expensive side.

    I did find a couple of items like this on eBay:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/G1-Nightbea...kAAOSwYIhWlT9K

    I am vaguely wondering what a hand cast reproduction is.

    Also, I was surprised to learn Nightbeat actually came with a blaster gun, my original purchase didn't have it.
    Maybe it was accidentally not included in the box?

    Hand cast, means they have taken an impression of the original item and cast it in a resin that probably sets at room temperature, rather than a plastic that has to be heated to a difficult to handle temperature.

    Sadly with these parts being 30 years old & having always been rare & expensive on the secondary market, you’re going to find it’s much easier (and probably not much more expensive) to buy the toys again, complete.

    My Nightbeat came without the seat & side guns, but I bought him accepting I’d probably never get those. I paid $5 (flea market find in around 1996) and was willing to make that compromise at that price. To he honest I won’t buy a G1 toy missing a key accessory like the *master because well... it can cost more to buy that accessory, if I can find it.

    That said, best of luck!
