Yeah, that's right. Marlboor Wheeljack repaint!

For those that don't know, what we now call Transformers was made up out of different toylines from Takara and a few other companies (hence the complete lack of scale in G1). Those pre-TF toys had alternate decos, and the one that would become Wheeljack was released with a different head and stickers for various real and not-so-real sponsors.

Takara either couldn't get licensing, or decided not to have a tobacco company on a child's toy, so Marlboro was changed to Marlboor. This toy was never released in the US, but later imported and sold (for quite a premium) on eBay and other sites.
