Hot Wheels Modifighters - Mattel's Transformers Rip-Off That Crashed

While we are waiting for the official debut of the Hot Wheels X Transformers to roll out, it may surprise some Transformers fans that Mattel has been here before, without Hasbro.

Back in 2007 Hot Wheels introduced their line of transforming cars called the "Modifighters". There is no ambiguity here over these being cars that transform into robots. Which, are not going to impress many Transformers fans. The basic designs have been extended to incorporate an "icy cold water" gimmick that changes the cars' colors.

This wasn't a one-off line either, as they had three different styles in the Modifighters series with the addition of Trucks and Quick Changers sublines. Obviously, these didn't stay on the road long and have since been long forgotten. Read on to see the official product information and details, thanks to ToyNewsi.com

Hot Wheels Modifighters
A.R.P.: $9.99 Age: 5+ Available: February 2007

The Hot Wheels® Modifighters™ assortment features cool, licensed vehicles that modify from cars to fighting robots, then fire icy cold water to reveal battle damage color change. The assortment includes six robots with rapper- and skater-themed personalities.

Hot Wheels Modifighters Trucks
A.R.P.: $19.99 Age: 5+ Available: February 2007

Like the Modifighters™ assortment, the truck assortment features licensed vehicles that transform from trucks to color-change, fighting robots. The assortment includes four large truck robots with rapper- and skater-themed personalities, each featuring water squirters that use icy cold water to reveal hidden color-change marks and battle damage icons.

Hot Wheels Modifighters Quick Changers
A.R.P.: $5.99 Age: 5+ Available: June 2007

Ready for instant Modifighters™ changing action? Enter the Quick Changers™ vehicles. Smaller and sneakier, this new scale of Modifighters™ features instant modification. Roll them along and they instantly change from car to robot mode.
