    i remember years ago i had this green minivan transformer that i got at big lots .I'm sure it was cheap but was it a transformer or a knock off.
    if it was a knock off it was pretty dam good
    any help identifying this metal transformer would be appreciated.

    Could you be talking about the Titanium line? Did they even sell those at Big Lots?

    Were there metal Transformers? Yes. The first several years of the original series and the entirety of the Titanium line.


    Was there a green minivan Transformer made of metal? Not that I'm aware of.

    the only two tf's that are green and could be seen as minivans with some metal in them would be the e-hobby g1 figs.
    (g1 ratchet but painted green to match the 07 movie ratchet)
    (g1 skids repainted into a green version along with a brownish/orange version too,could have been a two pack?)

    The metal Optimus melts faces rather than takes them.
