Diaclone CarRobots No.18 Lancia Stratos Turbo 'Marlboro Edition', aka Marlboor Wheeljack - detailed photos

So this time round, I thought I would do more detailed photos of my 'new' Marlboor Wheeljack (since I hardly touched the last one before letting it go).

This will be Part 1 of 3, in which I focus on the Diaclone pre-Transformers Marlboor Wheeljack and its Japanese Takara release 03-Wheeljack.

Marlboor Wheeljack out of box and with all its complete and unused paperworks.

Close up of the toy still in insert. You can see that the sticker is just a tad yellow. Can't really blame it, it is a 35 year piece of paper after all!

Close up on the Diaclone driver, which is green and has metal magnetic feet.

Close up of the accessories, the 2 launchers and also the 'wings'. Notice the slit in the styro for the launchers, its a good design that allows you to take out the launcher below by tugging in its connector stand.

Another view of the Marlboor Wheeljack and its contents.

I did this shot specifically to show the numbers on its box, which like I said in the previous post, is unique to the Diaclone Marlboor Wheeljack. In other words, a Diaclone regular Wheeljack box would have a different set of numbers. The serial number of the Diaclone Marlboor Wheeljack box is 159704-8-1700.

Here is Marlboor Wheeljack with its Japanese counterpart, the Takara 03-Wheeljack. Both are 100% complete with all papers and unused sticker sheet.

Whilst Marlboor Wheeljack is a expensive among Diaclones in general due to its uniqueness and rarity (though it isn't the rarest), 03-Wheeljack is itself also pretty rare and expensive among the early Japanese boxed Autobot cars.

The papers and stickers.

It really cuts a beautiful profile... and looks like a pack of cigarettes...
