Transformers ROTF Nightbeat, Dunerunner, and Rollbar

The transformation on Nightbeat is very similar to Siren, just the addition of foldout fists and a lift-up hood providing any noticeable variety. What sets Nightbeat apart are the looks. A blue and yellow 959 with flame decals on the side is so completely inappropriate for a detective, and yet that’s just the kind of insanity that makes post-movie Transformers so lovable. Those accessories, especially the helmet antennae, are very costly to get separately and can help form the attack mode as with Siren. Nebulan Muzzle, who was originally shown on stock photography as having blue legs not black, sits inside Nightbeat within the helmet seat. Sticker wear is an issue with this figure, especially the clear-backed flame decals, but not as prevalent as the rampant discolouration. Interestingly, the 90s Chinese release of Nightbeat of which there was a case find, has a red robot face and yellow chin instead of the light orange face of the Hasbro 1988 release. Chinese Nightbeats also have been known to come with two same-sided head antennae and silver paper- backed flame decals on the vehicle. Nightbeat’s instructions show the antennae pointed forwards, very much acting as guns. Once again, excellent box artwork helps to sell this figure, with such colours and a Porsche alt mode added to developed character in media, it is no surprise that Nightbeat was a popular toy back in 1988 and still today. He was available as a mailaway in Japan alongside Siren, being clearly different to Minerva.
