    ok i need help iding these, no pics im afraid but in each pack you got three cars, or other things like tanks, that were plastic and die cast and each one turned into part of a mech and you combined them.
    the one i had was a tank, a troop transporter and a apachy.
    they were the size of hot wheels cars kinda thing they were pretty good.

    I'm trying to Google, but the closest I can get are Matchbox's Parasites line. Which was cool, but not what we're after. I don't think these were made by Matchbox somehow. GRAR! I can rembember the damn things, there were sets made up of three or five vehicles. I've got the set you mention and another set of three sports/muscle cars somewhere. But what were the bloody things called?

    Are you thinking of "ZBOTS"? They were by Galoob and they had a vehicle similar to what you describe though each component was also a robot. Some were combiners, others had vehicles or action features and so on.

    Zbots - Google Search

    I think I owned the one your talking about. Was it tan and orangey red (or maybe it was green >.>)?

    no it wasnt like those these things looked like real little cars, the colours were life like so the two tanks were army green and the apachy was grey/black and green, the apachy became the head the troop transpot the arms and body and the tank became the back and legs/wheels, they were pretty cool

    i think that might be one of them yes, they were very simple, that seems to be one of the more rubbish ones lol, from what i remember the three piece ones were better as they were less fiddly
