Transformers Series 3 Autobot Minibot Tailgate

1986 AFA 85 Patch Offer

Tailgate is a part of the last wave of Minibots in the G1 line. He is a retool of Swerve. While Swerve’s mold was used in Takara’s Microchange line, Tailgate’s mold was not. He transforms into a Pontiac Firebird. The first run of Minibots in 1986 had the iron-on patch offer on the cards. Inside the package there is an iron-on patch of a Transformers character.
