What was the mini sci fi action figure toy line that went clear under hot water?

Ooo yes I had that carwash!

There were a bunch of cars too. I remember I had some of the same cars, some were color change and some were not. I also remember having hotwheel with "damage" that would be a panel that hid until you "crashed" the car. I miss 80s toys.

Anyone else notice the spam links poorly imbedded in OP’s post? What’s up with that shit?

I also had the crashable hotwheels. Im pretty sure I had that cop car,and that yellow car as well as a maybe one or two more. I liked the key cars that launched when you squeezed the red plastic key. My brother&I had another line of cars called “guzzlers” that you put water inside with a dropper...we got it from our step-dad’s mother...iirc we had to leave it at her house,played with them only a couple of times,and then they disappeared?

If the op was a bot, it sure picked a weird way to do it's thing.

Contra, I had some of those cars with keys, I think the were called "Burnin' Key cars". I had a set of those, I liked how the keys had fobs on them that had the vehicle makers "symbol"...or whatever it's called. I think they also came with a plastic drivers license? A company called Maisto either bought/renewed the license or simply made their own version using the same name a year or two ago.

PCS, the Micronauts were clear (at least some of them were), no water required. I loved those figures and still have mine from when I was little.

I remember those mini driver's licenses. Man, we were all spoiled little brats with all the toys we had that have long been forgotten. Transformers, Joes, MASK, Lego and those bug puppet guys (Sectaurs) are the only ones that stuck in my mind until adulthood.

I remember the commercials for those ants, but my friends were a MUSCLES group.
Oh my Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood.. right in the nostalgia


I wish I could flash back to a day in the 80s so I just look around and remember all the things I played with. It's so hard because outside of maybe 15-20 brands "everyone knows", it's hard to remember the smaller things.

I remember Army Ants, but didn't have any, nor do I recall any desire to "MUST HAVE!!!" Did have some M.U.S.C.L.E.S., though. They were great for diving in the pool because they sank. Can I grab them all with one breath or drown?

Yeah, I was 11 or 12. Though I did play with toys a lot longer than other kids my age. I think it had to do with me having a younger brother to play with. Of course I'm still interested today so maybe a younger brother has nothing to do with my lifelong interest.
