What was the Go-Bot who looked like Optimus?

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.

What was the Go-Bot who looked like Optimus?

Postby cotss2012 » Sat Dec 03, 2011 6:29 pm

For a very long time, I've had a Go-Bot that bears a remarkable resemblance to Optimus Prime. Its vehicle mode is a red, flat-nosed semi, and in robot mode, it has a red chest and blue legs. Does this guy have a name?
I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.

I think you are thinking of Road Ranger. A quick look on ebay should let you know if it is or isn't, that's how I look up a name if I'm not sure. Hope that helps.
