    i got this in china, there were two other colors. about 4-5 inches tall,its brittle hard plastic with stickers, wings fold, legs bend, arms move, but it doesn't transform into anything as the articulation would lead you to believe. i just think its a cool bat robot, and would be happy if there were other versions of him out there somewhere.

    any help is appreciated!

    Hehe...weren't Convertors, themselves, basically bootlegs? :razz:

    I have the four car-robots from Galvion...atrocious toys, but kinda fun in their fugliness.

    i knew i could count on you guys- i think this isnt a bootleg of converters, just another color? mine can transform now i found out, but it scares me when moving the pieces. i remember seeing this black color in the case.

    someone on flickr pointed out that it could be a bootleg of the transformer MINDWIPE, hes a bat, and transforms the same.

    still an awesome toy in my book! i really like the primary color scheme, i just wish he was diecast and hefty.

    thanks for the help

    I know someone else must know the history better, but the vast majority of “Convertors” were toys made from designs/molds from a varied lot of Japanese toys in the 1980s. The “Convertors” is the closest to a coherent expression of this stuff since they were decently made, but this stuff gets bootlegged like crazy even to this day.

    That's accurate...except maybe the "decently made" part. Well...a lot of the Convertors toys were well-manufactured in quality materials...but the designs were generally pretty shitty! :razz:

    Those look like something that would come out of soundwave.
