Transformers G1 DoubleDealer

Transformers Vintage G1 Doubledealer
One of the powermaster which i'm actively looking for, actually the takara brother of this fella but it seems that Doubleclouder is quite difficult to find...
Got this again from a seller at TFW2005 boards, loose and complete. With some yellowing to the missile. abit dusty too, but that is easily resolved.

A triple changing (Bot, Tank and Hawk) Power master, he has 2 powermaster engines Knok and Skar. He is neither Autobot nor Decepticon and he can become both.

 The Missile can be broken down into 2 pieces, the shoulder cannon and the blaster for the bot mode.

 Tank mode. Bot to tank transformation is pretty direct and same as any other vehicle transformation principles.

Hawk mode. Interesting way of hiding the hawk mode...the head is twisted and stored at the back where the 2 wings fold. transformation technology back then wasn't as bad as it seems.
for the transformation to Hawk mode, i had to look at the picture and figure out. probably i'm not as well-verse as others...but that's the fun of G1 TFs to me...especially if i get them loose without instructions. to figure out how to transform them is an art!

Powermaster engine Skar who transformers into a bat.

Powermaster engine Knok, as usual transforms into a dude.
