oh my...this brings a lot of memory. I used to own this thing when I'm 8. He came in set with 3 others or at least mine is. There was this guy, a rhino beetle, a wasp and a dragonfly...I think there is one more but I cant remember what insect it was.

A few years ago they were sold in sets of 4 at places like Family Dollar or Big Lots. It maybe the same set that you remember. The beetle was black but for some reason the individual release was blue. To the best of my knowledge there were 8 of these guys (one of them being female, which transforms into a mosquito)

Few years ago?Haha..In my story it was almost 2 decades ago..My beetle was blue. The wasp is yellow and the dragonfly is red. Wow..there were 8?I have no idea.Seeing this guy reminds me of those bug robot. And I even remember they were illustrated to combine but there is no instruction for that and I cant see any combining configuration.

Wow, 20 years? I was no more

Wow, 20 years? I was no more than 5 back then. Lol. I think all the insect bots came from the same series and there are also smaller simplified versions floating around out there as well. I don't suppose you remember where you saw the illustration of their "combined" form, do you? If it was somewhere online it might have just been fanart. It's an interesting idea and it's possible they were either re-tooled or if they had accessories that helped them combine they were omitted. After some digging this is the only thing that I could find and it's definitely not the set we're talking about. http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/showthread.php?251895-WTB-unbranded-combiner-robots-details-in-thread

Sounds like an idea for a major kit-bashing project with the help of some rubber bands of course! Lol. So far other than this guy, none of them have fallen apart on me yet. One or two are kinda floppy but that's it.
