There was, sort of: the Transformers electric race track. It came with two race cars that actually transformed--they didn't come with names or tech specs though. Even though the track was small, it was loads of fun. The cars' speed was controlled by handheld gun-shaped controls attached to the track by wires, and if you ever gunned it full speed, they would literally fly across the room so fast your eye couldn't follow them. This was especially effective if you laid down a long straight track and then hiked it up at the end to form a ramp. I still have mine--the complete set, although I threw away the original packaging. I've heard the set's pretty rare. I don't even know how what kind of keyword search to use to find it online just to check the value of it these days. Anyone who remembers this or had one and can help? Don't remember what year it was released either (late 80's?). I can't check mine -- it's in storage right now. ...as for crappy toys, there have been a few with Optimus' name attached that I have and like them just because they have his freakin' head on them. But as toys they suck.
