    Ebay:
    When I was young my friend had a couple of transformable robots that I have no idea what they were. I happened to come across a picture of one on ebay. It was a blue and white car/transport. If I remember, there was some partsforming with the front wheels (missing in this example) to convert it to a car. There was also one that I think was part of the same line that was a red and yellow 'space battleship' similar to Energon Omega Supreme's battleship portion. Any idea what line these were from?

    That one you circled is Xabungle. Bandai is coming out with an updated version in their Hi-Metal R line soon.

    The Red and Yellow one was probably Iron Gear. The giant Battleship from Xabungle.

    Both toys are mecha from the series Xabungle. The red flying battleship is Iron Gear, and acts as a carrier able to launch the smaller mecha like Xabungle.
    I had Iron Gear as a kid. The molds were sold under the Robotron name for Buddy L, a company known for die-cast toys. Iron Gear and Xabungle were the Robotron leaders.
