    Hello Internet Friends

    I just signed up because I'm searching for an old transformers knock off and can't find anything. Maybe you can help?

    My apologies if I am posting in the wrong place or I missed some amazing resource or thread that will give me an image search for what I'm looking for, but I've spent the last 2 hours scouring through google image search and still can't find what I'm looking for. I used to have this thing as a kid and sold it, so all I'm looking for is an image of what it looks like, or more information on where it came from.


    Here's the deets

    1. Transformers Knock off
    2. from 1980's probably from about 1985-1988, no later than 1989 or 1990
    3. Jet
    4. looks similar to Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, or Dirge
    5. made of 10-20 separate pieces that pull apart like a model
    6. it does not technically transform in one piece
    7. rubbery material or slightly bendable plastic
    8. the material is not rigid or breakable
    9. white color with possible light blue pieces as well (duo or tri-colored maybe?)
    10. no stickers or paint (at least I don't remember any)
    11. probably about 4 to 6 inches tall when transformed into a robot
    12. definitely not a minature
    13. came with weapons (maybe a gun or bombs?)
    14. all I need is a photo to it so I can make sure I'm not making this thing up in my head, I don't need to actually re-buy the thing.

    That's all the information I can remember (it's been 20 years since I last saw this thing). Thanks for your time and lemme know if any of this rings a bell in your memory.
    Good luck!

    Ha! I had that Voltron as a kid, along with the rubber lion version.

    That's it!

    Yeah that's totally it! I never saw that boat before. Damn, the 80's had some weird/amazing transforming robots, and for some reason I used to have a lot of them.

    Thanks for the memories and good luck figuring out where ever they came from!
    Take care

    I seem to recall there was a short run sub-line of the Convertors toys, very rare, where the gimmick was that you had to disassemble them. These look like those toys. I have some pictures somewhere on my home computer.

    Can you build the robot? Cause I'm having a hard time imagining how those pieces fit together to make a robot.

    I think this is the Convertors Flexibots. The Jet is Blue Angel and the boat is Marauder.

    ah Converters. Remember getting those at Chuck E Cheese as prizes. Their Macross stuff was pretty good
