Default does anyone know about these transformers

hello, when i was like 5, i had this set of transformers that were autobots and they were air-planes. 4 of them were normal sized and the fifth was big. It also was a launch pad for the others. the five of them made a bigger bot when you put them together. If anyone knows about these bots, could you please tell me the names and maby where i could buy them.
thanks

Sounds like the Aerialbots - the large one is Silverbolt, the small white one Slingshot, the red one Fireflight, the grey/black one Skydive and the black one Air Raid. They combined to form Superion. Your best bet for buying them would be ebay [either.com, .co.uk, .au or wherever you live ]... there's also a cheap Taiwanese copy out too which retains the colours, if not the quality...

Welcome board btw!

I don't recommend the Taiwan copies. Inferior quality plastic, poorly applied stickers and individual weapons are not included. Also, the Silverbolt in my set has to be set very carefully in jet mode because the landing gear won't stay down. I was very disappointed with the set that I bought.

My Aerialbots are in Superion mode 95% of the time, but Fireflight's tail and cockpit pieces won't fit together, which is fairly minor.

No pics, but the G2 Superion's dominant clors are blue and silver, rather than red and white and Slingshot is gold.

I'd recommend getting one of the knockoff sets floating around on ebay, they're pretty nice and not nearly as fragile as some would have you believe...

Default the knock off set

i had the original g1 and g2 airealbots.... as to the knock offs.. i would rather have my original ones back and am gonna get em back.. but for now i really wanted to play with them.. and depending on what u are wanting them for.. the knockoffs are good to play with and show off some.. they are 9.99 plus shipping u get em for like 15-16 dollars.. thats not bad.. true they do suck compared to the originals but they work as a for now set... till u are able to get the real ones...actualy i liked the g2 silverbolt better.. the color was cool plus i liked his launchers...

Try going to Big Lots, they had them in a couple of months ago.

I am still wondering if they are going to do the Easter Basket KO again this year...lol.

WalGreens is carrying the KO of Devastator, and from the looks of it, they are not too bad of a repro. The Chrome actually looked decent.

I think I might pick up that one KO that is Die Cast of Devastator, and repaint it.

Which part of SC are you in, I live in Sav. myself.

I'm toying with getting the repro some time for Silverbolt [who I hate] and the Superion accessories... does it have the other Aerialbots' guns as well?

Not the box that I saw... unfortunately.

I bought the KOs that were the little 2 paks, but never came across a Silverbolt by himself.

Default sorry no weapons with superion remake and where i live

first off.. i am from rock hill sc to answer one question... and to the other one.. the superion remake only has the superion accesories.. but for 9.99 for the buy it now along with the abominus devastater blitzwing and braodside remakes all 9.99 with buy it now ... hey it works personaly i hated silverbolt too i like airrai and sky dive... but i loved how the g2 silverbolt looked. none of the remake gestals (combiners come with the individual weapons except silverbotl comes with his main gun so most of the other combiners wil have the main bodys gun.. but thats it and again the remakes are ok.. true they are plastic but they work....
