    I'm talking about the purple car on the lower right corner. Is it a TF? If so, who?

    It's not on TFU's ID a transformer, probably is just a toy car.

    Maybe it's one of those Magnaformer knockoffs? I know I've seen that mold for a toy somewhere, it's not a true TF, but I know I've seen it somewhere...

    its not a transformer, its a car and when you push the top certain parts shift around and a pair of wings from the spoiler (not in the picure) come off and atatch to the sides-VIOLA! its a "jet" thing. my brother had one, i had one that did something similar, but became an amphibious thingy and was yellow.

    the button is the triangle, and you squeeze the parts together to put it back into car mode. its sorta like an activator, but its not spring activated, but has that sort of friction-gears that those "roll-the-car-once-then-put-it-on-the-ground-and-watch-it-go" sorta thing. anyone know what i mean?

    I just saw it on a lot auction on Ebay and it struck me as odd. The seller doesn't have any other interesting pics of it. Eitherways thx to Torque for the description. What brand is he? Mattel?

    IT was a hot wheels thing a while back. I think they were call SHO GUN or something like that. They were kinda tuner racer kinda cars that would shift into different things. There was the "jet" one, a water one, a snow one that had skis that flipped out in the front, I can't remember if there were any others. The only one I ever got is the one that's in that picture.

    Oh ok, I remember. I think there were 4 main figures and 4 repaints right? They all came with a "human" character bio on the card, and each repaint was an evil doppelganger. :inquisiti

    Yeah I think so. I know that each mold did have a repaint for their "nemesis". I can't remember exactly how many molds there were though.

    It's for sale on Ebay, in a junker lot. Can't remember the link though, but you won't miss it if you search correctly.
