Identify 80's mammoth/dinosaur transforming toy

Motto: "Kill 'em Dead!"
Around 1988 I had I weird transforming toy that converted from a mammoth, to a sauropod-ish dinosaur, to a chunky motorcycle thing.

I remember the legs, tail/trunk and maybe the dinosaur head being blue. I believe the rest was mostly light grey.

It had a heavy central wheel with one of those tooth'd plastic pull-cords. Pulling the cord would cause the dinosaur & mammoth to walk, and the motorcycle thing to roll.

It was a pretty simple transformation. You simply flipped the toy upside-down and turned the legs around to go between mammoth & dinosaur. The tail doubled as the trunk. To become the motorcycle thing, the front wheel popped out of the body, and the legs would fold to the sides (not inside... they were clearly visible) allowing the pull-cord wheel to make contact with the ground.

Does anyone remember this thing and/or what toy line it was a part of?
