View Full Version : Convertors - Does anyone have any of these?
20th July 2010, 08:07 PM
I was just surfing and came across www.toyarchive.com and found these.
Does anyone know much about them? They look cool. Do they contain die cast?

I remember these. I had Chopper and Tanker. From memory they were quite small and fiddly. No die cast just plastic.

I don't have any of them and I don't know much about them, except they were licensed from various Japanese toy lines including Macross, Orguss and Dorvack.
Essentially a cheap cash-in on the success of Transformers and Go-Bots.

I had one of the Orguss ones, they were pretty cheap and low quality compared to the Transformers of the era.
Mine eventually succumbed to age.

There were actually countless "transforming" action figure lines during the 80s. Most people only know about Transformers and GoBots - essentially because these were the only 2 toylines to have TV shows, which highlights how important it was as a marketing tool.
