    I can’t for the life of me remember what they where called but I had a mess of them. You could link them together and make all sorts of stuff out of them, they where cool.

    I responded in the other thresd, but I had these as a kid too. They came with a bunch of vehicle parts that you could plug into them to make ships and such. (I believe they also came with some Gestalt type parts to make a big robot.) I believe they may have been marketed under the Diakron line here in the states.

    yeah sorry for the other thread but when coming back I didn't see my original thread, thought it was deleted...

    Anyway, there pretty sweet. In the lot I got some other weirder things, will post pics later. One is Chronoman or what was his name... A watch that could be transformed to a bot and vica versa...

    Here's a couple bots that were in the lot:

    Well Belgian, I can tell you those 3 cars you posted are from the turbomasters line, a european/canada exclusive line. Some of the moulds were reused for machine wars, but they took all the coolness out. The white one I know, at least, is called windbreaker.

    The turbomasters / predators were actually a really cool line, but couldn't make it over to the US because the shape of their missiles was considered a violation of child safety laws. They're these little yellow things about an inch long and I swear, they have some serious range. Other gimmicks included a magazine-fed dual artillery shell cannon on thunderclash, the prime of the line, and these really cool spyglass/kalidescope kind of things that the predators (decepticons) had where you looked into either this giant missile or the back of the leader's jets and you could see profiles on the autobots. By attaching on other smaller decepticons, you could look at different profiles.

    Look up the turbomasters and Im sure you'll be able to find out the names of the blue and red cars.

    Windbreaker was an orange Camaro-looking bot, which the white car there definitely is not.

    That's actually Hurricane. Boss is the blue one and Flash is the red one.

    That's correct. I had some yellow missiles to go with them. I'm not sure but I think I have some more laying around. It was a huge lot and took me some days to go through it...
