The Convertors were a line of action figures manufactured by Select in the 1980s.
The Convertors licensed some of their toy designs from Bandai just as was done for the Transformers, meaning some of the toys looked very similar. The molds for Convertors were later knocked off by other toy companies. Convertors toys were featured in a display in the 1985 J. C. Penney Christmas catalog.
The Convertors toys featured the conflict between heroic and evil factions, in this case the heroic Defendors (and their Avarian allies) and the evil Maladroids (and their Insectors allies).
Various toys were released in different size classes and price points for the Convertors line.
