This was a great line from the late 80s or early 90s, I don't have much information about them, but I remember that when I was a kid I had at least 3 of them, I loved this line. Sadly, now I only have few parts and accesories, I would like to collect them again but they are pretty difficult to find. Any of you collect this line?
Silverlit was the company responsible for Multimac. The line was a definite ripoff of a Tomy series called SCITEX in Japan and ‘TOMICS in the United States. Tomy produced a number of other lines that had the same technological look and scale, including ZOIDS, STARRIORS, R.A.T.S., TRIBOTS and Z KNIGHT. It’s easy to get the various series confused, especially since Tomy used many of the same components across the lines. For example, the same sculpt was used for the pilots in almost all of the vehicles and robots.
Even though Silverlit created many new components for their Multimac line, many of the basic pieces are straight Tomy copies. However, they are of a very high quality, so Multimac parts can be seamlessly integrated with the Tomy stuff.
I didn't know from Multimac two days ago... but recently picked up a few parts (and a ton of pilots, the yellow pharoah ones). All I knew was that these were interchangeable and marked 'SL'. With that bare knowledge I went-a-googling, it's scary how adept you can become at identifying toys on search engines armed with only two initials. Found two interesting sites;
Here's a pic of one of those sets. When I think about it, it might be more of a M.A.N.T.A. Force Knock Off. IDK
maybe my mysterious dinosaur is from this toy line? the same green color in combination with red, little people look a like. i cannot find other toys from this toy brand, but if anyone have more pictures or link, please let me know. also, is this original multimac and is he complete?

My old Multimac thread is still working! Man this thread is about to have 10 years old next February! Great toys, I'm glad to see there are Multimac collectors here, you all have great figures guys! Some of them I have never seen before
Recently found on ebay some interesting versions. Never knew there was a Contructions Team series, with rather new base vehicle bases, and well-known accessories, like the driller, laser gun, etc parts.And they were sold with at least two figures, which was always a bit let down for me, when I had only one figure per vehicle.
