A brief history of this figure: Astro Magnum, often referred to as a 'bootleg' or a 'knock-off' of the G1 Shockwave is indeed neither, Astro Magnum was a figure produced by Toy-co in 1983 and was also packaged as 'Galactic Man' for sale in Radio Shack stores, this has affectionately gained him the name of 'Shackwave' in later years by the Transformers collecting communities. Hasbro later took this toy and repurposed it for their Transformers line (as they did with so many others).

This Astro Magnum is in incredible condition and is fully complete - they very rarely pop up for sale with their box and the fact that this a variant intended for the French market makes this harder still to find. The box does show a little wear to the edges but is still in really good condition. Also included are the original instructions!!!

This piece is a real gem and a true piece of Transformers history!
