20 Gobots That Remind Us Why the Gobots Sucked So Incredibly Hard

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

Wouldn't you know it, at C.O.N.S. a friend found 3 of the 6 Puzzler pieces: Crossword, Pocket and Rube. Neither of us bought them, and I would regret it later despite my "only complete combiners" policy. :BANG_HEAD: My friend did snap up a good condition Super Gobot Warpath and he's impressive. I just expected Super Gobots to be a bit... bigger.

I snagged a minty fresh Stacks from BBTS (warehouse find apparently) and he's just as awesome as I remember him being when I was a kid, but with the added bonus of now having his trailer (I had the version that came with no trailer when I was a kid). I just wish that trailer were big enough to accommodate the FP Stunticons. They're just a wee bit too wide to fit, but they pretty much scale with him. It would have been neat to have those sports cars on a car carrier like that.

I got him, too. It's rather nice. I like the transformation, the trailer, the stickers. ;) I'd love a Classics Stacks, but since that's probably never happening, this guy's cool too.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

May I ask a side question, "Is there any GoBots that you would like to see somehow incorporated in a Transformers' continuity?" Is so how? (Hypothetical ideas: the "ancestor" TFs in G1, lost colony somewhere the galaxy, a MECH-style reverse engineering program, etc)"

They did that in the comics and/or Botcon as I recall, something about an alternate universe.

I'd LOVE to see some Gobot love in the TF lines though. Something like Generations Gobots would be awesome and I'd buy every single one of them.

Same, here. I've been saying it for years.

Yeah, I've actually been contemplating doing some repaints of my own. I've got Classics Crasher already (the Mirage repaint) but I'd kill for a Cy-Kill :P. I've been considering doing a repaint of 2007 Arcee/Elita One into him since that mold has the bike wheels on the shoulders, but I'd like something that's a closer match.

Hehe, yeah, I had that model kit as a kid. It was epic. I've since acquired some of the little Mospeada figures and of course you can still get this.

Okay... that looks like a recolor of the Mospeada bike into Cy-Kill. Am I right or wrong?
