Thread: Need help remembering 90s "Interchangeable car toy"! Please!

    I don't know where else to ask this, but after searching the internet on and off for a few years I still can't find what I'm looking for. It was a toy from the 90s or possibly very late 80s. Check out this kickstarter to get an idea of what I'm looking for:

    This person claims the idea is original, but some of you may remember that there used to be plastic interchangeable car toys just like it! Only, instead of using magnets to connect, the modules used an alternating "male/female" plastic nub system to connect to one another. There were front, middle and rear modules and if you had enough middle modules (which had the connectors on both sides), you could make as long a car as you wanted. They were mostly normal car modules but I remember at least one tank piece that could allow for some interesting designs due to its treads. Does anyone have any idea what this line of toys was called, or where I could possibly find out more info on them? Unfortunately, I do not remember what company manufactured these so I can't be any more specific than I already have. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

      I do remember something like what you describe. I think it might have been a micromachines product.

      I know that transformers had combining micromasters toys back around the early 90s. These would be the front & back half of vehicles, which you could mix & match.
