Help with Identifying a toyline

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers?

Help with Identifying a toyline

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Hey everyone!

I would like some help in trying to remember what a toyline was called, and if anyone has encountered it in the past.

It would be mid-1990s to late 1990s, at least in Europe.

I cannot remember the name, nor the manufacturer. All I know is that they were sold as packs of cars that could combine into robots/monsters. They didn't have a robot mode, just the combination gimmick (and were pretty loose, as the linking parts were small pegs).

Any idea?

A better description might help.
I'm assuming it wasnt power rangers related.

Definitely not Power Rangers.

The one model I used to own had a Dodge Viper-esque sports car as the head, the bumper became the mouth, the car seats rose up behind the windscreen to form ears, and the rest just folded at a right angle a pegged into the main torso car.

I seem to remember that they had no actual feet or legs, but a unipod of sorts.
I've been looking for images all over the interwebs, but to no avail. :(

I just found something!
It was thread by Dead Metal, on here, and the line is called Autotech, by a Spanish company only selling in Europe.

This was the guy I was thinking of (second to last on the right, all five on the right are from the same line):

I remember this. :D

It was called "Autotech", and the announcer on the adverts proudly declared they would combine into one big "Auto-Bot".

I remember wondering how they got away with using the word 'Autobot'.

I believe it was Famosa who made them.
