    I had a robot when I was a kid, it was a chromed silverball, and it transformed into a robot. In ball mode it wasn't bigger than a golf ball, and in robot mode it were black and silverchrome. Anybody knows what I'm talking about?

    There are three different ones, a robot, a lion and a bird. Don't recall what they are from tho. Each had black weapons to go with them as well.

    I know they were released in BWII, but I think that was a reissue... Where they came from first is beyond me.

    I'm pretty sure they're golf-ball sized.

    or... it could be a Microman toy. But since the catalogs are in Japanese I don't know what it is called.

    I'm pretty sure those are what Spencer and I were referring to.

    Ebay:
    Microman MeteorRobo?

    The robot was available in two colors during it's Microman run (silver & black, or silver & red). The three of them had clear versions released in BW2 (with added keychains), several bootlegs, and most recently in the Kiss Players line.

    Very underrated little bots, in my opinion.

    I remember having the bird-ball back in the G1 days. I have no idea where it came from though.

    Very much so. Vector Sigma has all 3 (they were a Grail of his; I found them for him on eBay last year, for which he is eternally grateful), and they are amazing.
