    I found these guys at Value Village today, I remember these from when I was a kid, like 4 years old getting them in the happy meals.. man they sure don't make happy meal toys like they use to! these guys pull back and roll along the ground, transform, walk around and even have chrome and stickers! Not to mention they come in their own customized boxes with photos, names and instructions.

    There was one more made as well, a car, but they had only had these three still in the boxes (actually it looks like no one ever opened them)

    Thought I would share a few pics and a video!

    See, just the other day I was reflecting on how Mcdonalds toys didn't suck ass, mostly referencing the spiderman & transformers from the early 90s... but these are more than legit.

    Hhahahah I remember those. So silly, but also so brilliant when you think about the advertising potential there.

    Haha! I remember these guys, I had a fair sized army of them. Which probably goes to show that my parents fed us mcdicks way too much!

    They're by Tomy? That means they conceivably could be retroactive parallel-universe Transformer relatives now, sorta like Go-Bots. :)

    DUUUUuuuudddeee!

    I didn't realise they were from McDonalds. I picked up my Solardyn from a Petrol station, they had them all in blister packs for 99p. I wish i'd bought them all, I think they're great, especially when they're walking.

    I don't have the car but I have the other but some muppet I bought them off sent them wrapped in brown paper and they got ruined in the mail.

    I've often wondered do they link up in vehicle mode.

    Thanks for posting though as I'd not seen the car one before - so that was interesting.
