Comet Creatures That Transform!
Description: The Meteorbs represented Mattel's attempt to get in on the transforming toy craze (Transformers, Go-Bots, etc), which took the form of transforming rocks intoanimals. And just like their illustrious Transforming predecessors, Meteorbs were based on the Japanese toyline by Bandai, called Tamagoras.
The Heroic Meteorbs consisted of: Tuskor, Cometroid, Astrolion, Comet Cat & Ty-Grrr, while the Evil Meteorbs had ontheir roster: Orbear, Rhinorb (pictured here), Crocobite, Dinosorb and Gore-Illa.
Features Each Meteorb possessed the ability to transform from a smooth egglike shape into some form of animal or robot. The gimmick was fairly simple and didn't require much effort to transform.
