Erector?

Sounds like a He-man character, Ram-Man, Fisto and Erector!

You must be a young'un. ;) Erector Sets have been around in one form or another since 1913. They used to have steel beams, screws, motorized parts and other industrial type parts to build stuff.

The brand is now owned by Meccano though and just not quite the same.

@NathanExplosion: My great uncle actually gave me an old school 1960s or 70s Erector Set when I was a kid (think early 80s). It was actually very cool to work with but it's no surprise the company had trouble competing with the likes of LEGO.

The Gears of War vehicles in these Erector sets look pretty good to be honest. It's too bad the figures look atrocious.
