There's something in one of the bios about either Goshooter or Shuta being a "Godmaster Junior", but it's difficult for me to make out as it sounds like the smaller helicopter figure is the Godmaster Junor Transtector instead of the larger Deluxe figure (which would make more sense than the smaller figure, but it sounds like it is referring to the smaller figure, hence the confusion here).

I just noticed something in the robot mode: the shoulder kibble has an alternate transformation to make it look more like the original G1 Siren/Goshooter toy:



It makes me wonder if that's the reason why Gen. Bumblebee was used for Nightbeat/Siren instead of RtS Jazz. :-?

Still can't believe this utter nobody Go-Shooter was elected rather than Alpha Trion. So pissed at that.

He is not a nobody in Japan, where this poll was aimed at. Japan got many many more iconic, beloved, very popular G1 characters that the Western World never got. It's like when Star Saber won the Masterpiece Fans Choice poll. These characters won these Japanese polls because they're very darn popular characters in Japan.


And that Alpha Trion toy looked less like Alpha Trion and more like Scourge cosplaying as Alpha Trion.

And we don't go BS crazy when an obscure character like Scoop gets a new toy? :roll:

Yeah, I totally think this was designed as Nightbeat, and the alternate transformation and Bumblebee version was tacked on second. With the shoulders down, it really does make a great GoShooter/Nightbeat. This paint job also looks like it has a lot of detail. Really happy with it.

That said, I DO really hope they re-visit the list they showed. Many — like Alpha Trion — deserve to be made. Police Sunstreaker also in my top choices.

As for the Omnibots... I hope they get their own new molds. While they were at the top of my choices, they were each admittedly a little off.

The more I look at this, the more I wish this mold had become Barricade instead of BH Smokescreen.

Unpaintable nylon plastic. Molded on the same sprue as other parts of his robot mode that need to be blue. Can't be helped.

From far away the logo on the hood of the car looks like a clown face. :o)

So goshooter is supposed to be a gobot ? I cant believe they voted for this over alpha trion, silverbolt and the omnibots.

I think the original concept of the poll escaped him, but still, being that annoyed at the results is a bit strange, considering we would have to import regardless of who won

No, JelZe was teasing with you.

I explained who he is here:

I'll do JelZe to favor of say, yes, he is a G1 character, and a well done one at that.

Goshooter, better known as Shuta Go, was one of the Autobot Headmaster Juniors from the Japanese Super-God Masterforce cartoon. His toy was a redeco of the G1 Siren toy.



However, don't let that video clip fool you. Though he looks to be a mere human merging with a lifeless Transformer body when he transforms into robot mode in this video, the end of the series had all of the human-bonded TFs gaining their own life and separating from the humans completely, no longer needing them anymore.

This new toy of Goshooter represents the fully-living robot version of him after that series, so there's no need to worry about some human boding with him to give him life. But, the little Targetmaster this toy comes with is meant to be that same human, by now grown up into an adult, likely wearing a Targetmaster exosuit like those we saw the G1 Targetmasters wearing in the three-part G1 cartoon episode "The Rebirth".

Yeah, after these ideas are out 'on the table' for Takara and Hasbro.... I bet we can bank on seeing at least one or two of them in the next year or two.

I mean, look at the Protectobot set... they're getting some repaint value out of those guys... and still, I'm loving it. If it's a good mold, bring on the retools and repaints.

I never realized he came with a targetmaster as well, interesting I must of glanced over the pictures without fully looking.

#-o on so many levels, I thought the sarcasm was pretty obvious with the emoticon and hidden text.

Anyway, see Sabrblade's post just above mine. Seriously, it's like the third time he's told you.

Not sure why there is such a lack of love for this one, think it is a really good use of that mold. I am hoping for a Siren repaint but not holding my breath, was one of my fav figures when I was a kid.

theres really no reason for me to like this. a character ive never heard of, a mold i dont like, even his targetmaster i dont care for. and a big price tag to boot.

BUT I LIKE IT. i like it, and want it. whyyyyyyy....
maybe its just the colors work well for me, the head sculpt, i dunno. but i like it. im confident after him being out for a while i get snag him for a discount. if so, he's so mine :grin:

I know very little about the Japanese G1 cartoons. I would watch them, but I just cant get past those annoying subtitles and voices that all sound like the same actor.

How many times was the mold used in Japan ?

Nightbeat

Minerva

Goshooter

Siren (never heard of him either)

I was very "meh" before on this, but seeing this mock-up, it looks fantastic! And it's not even a character that was even on my radar until the recent Million Publishing poll. I'm going to have to get around to watching the Japanese G1 cartoon spin-offs soon.

Nightbeat and Minerva shared a mold. Nightbeat was Hasbro's release. Minerva was Takara's mainline release, but a special mail-away version of her in Nightbeat's colors (though still identified as Minverva) was made available later on in Japan.

Siren and Goshooter shared a completely DIFFERENT mold. Siren was the Hasbro release while Goshooter was the Takara release. Again, a version of Goshooter with Siren's colors was available later on in Japan, but once more, it was presumably supposed to be the same character with a new paint scheme, not the Hasbro character.

You could learn quite a bit with just a few minutes or research on tfwiki.net or a similar Transformers database.
