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 into animals. And just like their illustrious Transforming predecessors, Meteorbs were also shamelessly ripped off of the Japanese. This time, it was a toyline by Bandai called Tamagoras.
The Heroic Meteorbs consisted of Tuskor (pictured here), Cometroid, Astrolion, Comet Cat & Ty-Grrr while the Evil Meteorbs had on their roster: Orbear, Rhinorb, 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.
