Action Toys New Machine Robo figures aka GOBOTS revealed

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.

Looks like it. What worries me is that aside from Blue Jet (Fitor) and Tough Trailer, we've seen no samples of future figures yet.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

If anyone has spare RiD Mini-Con armor pieces for Glacius and Beastbox, hit me up!

I wonder how well they're selling. I think a lot of people think these aren't official, and as a result, aren't going for them. I think another problem is most fans in the US don't recognize the Japanese names for figures they'd want.

It's the distribution or perhaps the licensing that maybe causing the limited releases. Amiami or hobbysearch hasn't carried them. Meaning, possible the license to create these molds owned by Bandai is allowed only for outside JP territories.

Even in Alibaba, can't find them.

Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

Since this seems to be the main and most recent GoBots-related thread, there's something I've been meaning to post about and share with you guys but kept forgetting to do so.

Back in August, during the TF Nation fan convention, there was a free Rock Lords fanzine given away at the charity stall Toy-Fu. Well, "free" as in "free with any purchase from Toy-Fu". This fanzine contained articles with just about everything one needs to know about the Rock Lords line, and also featured some brand new (unofficial) Rock Lords fiction (including a Rock Lords/Beast Wars crossover written entirely in Shakespeare play quotes).

After the convention, Rocklords.co.uk (likely the biggest Rock Lords blog on the Internet) put up a digital copy of this fanzine in PDF form for anyone and everyone to read.

If you're a fan of GoBots, Rock Lords, or simply have a soft spot for either, I highly recommend checking this thing out. :D

Rock Lords Fanzine at TF Nation 2016

Image

The most exciting highlight of the TF Nation 2016 convention was not the Rock Lord panel or Rock Lord display or Rock Lord movie showing (it wasn't even a Rock Lord convention!) but the free Rock Lords fanzine!

Made by myself and several amazing contributors, this was given out free at the Toy Fu stall in an attempt to attract people towards us. Toy Fu is a charity stall, where all profits go towards the charity Mary's Meals. Mary's Meals sets up school feeding projects in some of the world's poorest communities, where hunger and poverty prevent children from gaining an education. This year we raised £3,600!

The fanzine is now online for your pleasure, below. If you enjoyed the fanzine, please consider donating any amount to Mary's Meals to enable the charity to continue its good work in changing the lives of children.

https://www.marysmeals.org.uk/donate

There are also some physical copies available (black and white with a colour cover and centre page). If you want one, all it costs is postage and packing - £1.50 within the UK and £5.50 to America, plus making a donation (any amount) to Mary's Meals. Contact me if you want postage anywhere else! If you're interested, message me @rocklordsrock on Twitter. The package will also include a Boulder and Magmar badge!

Prints of the cover and inside were also available at the convention, though currently I can't work out how to post them cheaply. If you want a better copy of the images than in the PDF, then find the cover here and centre piece here.

Download the fanzine here!

Haven't we seen prototypes of some of the main Rock Lords for this Machine Robo line? I know some of them appeared in the show.

For this new line? Nope. No "Rock People", as they were called, have been seen for this line.

The only other prototypes/tests shots we seen for this line that have yet to be either released or put up for preorder are Blue Jet (Fitor), Supercar Robo (Turbo), Shuttle Robo (Spay-C), and Pro Truck Racer, making ten known figures total.

For anyone interested in Revenge of Cronos, I've been posting full write ups of the episode on wiki pages, starting from episode 1. They are based on Counter-X's excellent synopsis' plus my own viewing of the episodes, and some online research to make some corrections and additions.

Just picked up by Bike Robo aka Cykill

A bit disappointed as the size is around that of a deluxe TF. It's got diecast but the paint is not that glossy of the classic Gobot Machine Robo series 1984 up.

Poseable except for the head. The back hood gets in the way to turn full left or right. Also, I thought I could get Cykill to go fight with Tank Megs. Well, he is too small, even against G1 Megs. Good thing I have the vintage Super Gobot brick of Cykill to be Meg's beotch in the gladiatoral rings of Kolkular.

Might get blue jet and eagle robo next.

To be fair, if the cartoon versions of Megatron and Cy-Kill were to ever meet each other, Cy-Kill would be far smaller than Megatron anyway, as the majority of the GoBots were no taller than the tallest Minibots or (in cases like Tank) the shortest Autobot Cars.

Aside from the Combiners, Zod was the only one who was really huge, but mostly comparable to Skyfire if he were hunched over in robot mode or transformed into jet mode without mass shifting. ;)

Works especially well because Megatron was actually in that miner get-up when he fought Cy-kill.

Oh ****, I just realized that it was a toy of Origin megs that we got. I didnt care at the time since I had not read that book. Pretty cool. We probably need a toy of legends Black Shadow for him to whoop as well.

Dunno. I just remember that we saw his unpainted test shot alongside other ones in pics posted much further back in this thread.

These things had so much potential but failed because the screwed up on robot scale. I bought the first 4 and when cykill arrived later than the first 3. I was disgusted with how small cykill was compared to Leader-1. And the drill guy was even smaller. I said no more. Theyre freakin gobots, they are all supposed to be the same height in bot mode even if the alt mode scale suffers.

I was disgusted with how small cykill was compared to Leader-1. And the drill guy was even smaller. I said no more. Theyre freakin gobots, they are all supposed to be the same height in bot mode even if the alt mode scale suffers.
Except, they're not GoBots and were never intended to be for GoBots audiences. These are Machine Robo toys. The ones you call "Leader-1" and "Cy-Kill" aren't those characters, they're Eagle Robo and Bike Robo, two average nobody characters who were of little significance in the Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos series. Nor are the Machine Robo characters all supposed to be the same size, that was a GoBots-only thing (and not always true for even that version since Scooter was shorter than everyone else while Tank towered over all the other GoBots, just to name a couple).

You can use these Machine Robo Gokin Series figures to represent their GoBots counterparts all you want, no one's preventing you from doing so. But Action Toys knew that they were making the Japanese Machine Robo characters and not the American GoBots characters when they made these, so to pretend that they were making these for GoBots purposes above all else is very fallacious.

Wasn't Bike Robo a major player, had a relationship with Rom Stol's sister?
