    I had that! IIRC, it's not a transformer at all. I THINK I got mine out of a gumball machine. It had little bits of armor that would add on to all those posts and holes to make a much bigger robot.

    Now that I think about it, there were several of them that could combine into a bigger robot. I remember spending a TON of quarters trying to buy them all.

    Do the bottoms of his feet have holes that look like his head could plug into?

    Hooray for Blockman!

    They almost look like diecast Headmasters

    I think that's a Robotech "Robolinks" figure.

    Damn, I may have had one of those and didn't even know it. I had one of these in this picture that I threw away a while back. Didn't know what it was from so I threw it away.

    And I'll bet you anything with Takara's typical standardization, you could've fit Mini-cons on those ports.

    Those things are really interesting. Whole legions of little robots that lock together to make one big robot? It's like the pilot episode of Megas XLR!

    It seems to me that even Bandai 'borrowed' the idea from Takara's Blockman series for their current Machine Robo Mugenbine...

    I've got one too, and the short answer is yes, it can double as a minicon. With a bit of work.

    The ports are the exact same size as most of the G1 Transformers fists (on the Combaticons, Stunticons, Pretenders, etc.) and the ringed port, with a little bit of drilling, makes the dude work perfectly as a minicon.

    It's really uncanny, if you ask me.

    Aaah! I had the "Land Robot"! I forgot all about those things. I remember picking up one of those little crome figures a couple years back and wondering what the hell it was from.

    Most definitely Robotech Robolinks. They are nifty little figs and have a cool Transformer aesthetic.

    takara blockman - in the us released by revell as robotech robolinks. i've got about 50 of the robots and a lot of the accessories. standard 5mm pegs and sockets. can connect with more tf's than you can shake a stick at. minicons plug in just fine, and they can connect onto minicon ports just fine. also have small pilot/driver figures that are the same size as diaclone (g1 tf) drivers.
    like micronauts, diaclone, and transformers, they're a spinoff of the microman line.
