Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
One of the pieces of news that might have been missed during the San Diego Comic Con event as the announcement from IDW Publishing of a new comic book series from the creative mind and hands of Tom Scioli, of Transformers vs GI Joe fame.

Are you ready for the return of GOBOTS? Because that's what we're getting! Check out below the full press release and an image from Leader-1's new look!

GO-BOTS Return in All-New Comic Book Series
IDW Celebrates the 35th Anniversary of Classic Toy Line with a Sci-Fi Epic Written and Drawn by Tom Scioli


SAN DIEGO, CA (July 20, 2018) – IDW Publishing is proud to announce that Tom Scioli, the visionary creator that brought you Transformers vs. G.I. Joe, will unleash his imagination on the wonderful world of Go-Bots! Launching in October, Go-Bots will be the first story to feature classic toy and cartoon characters like Leader-1, Scooter, Turbo, and Cy-Kill’s Renegades in over three decades!

In the new five-issue series, the existence of Go-Bots on Earth has changed humans’ way of life. They chauffeur us around. They protect us from harm. They do the jobs that are too boring or dangerous for us. They fight our wars for us. They are friends for the lonely. The only thing they don’t do is dream for us… but that could change any day now. For a generation, Leader-1 and the Guardians have said that they were here to help us… but as they become more integrated into our society, the question must be asked: Are they here to replace us?

“This is a dream project – I’m writing, drawing, coloring, and hand-lettering this book. It’s a labor of love,” says Scioli. “When these characters were conceived of in the ’80s, the idea of robots with human personalities was science fiction. Now, it’s history. The world of living machines is here – we’re living it. The time is right for Go-Bots!”

“Avant-garde creator Tom Scioli has been pushing the comic book storytelling medium for nearly two decades now and his work on Go-Bots is yet another watershed moment in his career,” says IDW Associate Publisher David Hedgecock. “It is a testament to the strong collaboration between IDW Publishing and Hasbro, that projects like this can exist on licensed properties.”

For information on how to secure copies of the monthly Go-Bots comic book series, please contact your local comic shop or visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you.


Creator Bio:

Tom Scioli is a writer and artist who works primarily in the comic book/graphic novel art form. His solo works include American Barbarian, Satan's Soldier, Mystery Object, and Myth of 8-Opus. He is the co-author of the comic and graphic novel series Godland with Joe Casey, and the co-writer/artist of IDW’s Transformers vs. G.I. Joe.

Soooooo...could this mean an honest to Primus new Gobots toyline? And might that mean some sort of break in the presumed endless 3-way-rights-tug-of-war between Hasbro, Bandai, and Time Warner?

And will this be a part of the next IDW TF universe? The war on Cybertron spills over to an Earth where GoBots are already a part of human life? My personal dream would be for a comic universe where TFs interact with every minor-league mid-80s transforming robot toyline, from Convertors to Mysterions to the collective Buddy L line; that's the shared universe in the childhood minds of all of us old enough to remember the dawn of G1, amiright? If the lines are all dead with no chance of revival, who's gonna' sue Hasbro or IDW for "sharing" their trash, seriously?

Tom Scioli's Transformers vs. G.I. Joe comic series didn't get a tie-in toyline.

Warner/Hanna-Barbera is the biggest problem. Hasbro can make different transformations or slightly different looking alt modes, but it's the HB cartoon likenesses that people want the most. It looks like either HB finally gave in and licensed the likenesses out (and maybe are finally giving us some new figures) or Hasbro and IDW just doesn't care anymore and are doing it anyway.

You guys are going to want cartoon accuracy & DEAR GOD NO! I love the Gobots but the cartoon was horrible & totally **** up a lot of the characters especially Leader-1 & Scooter. Even when I was a kid the cartoon was almost unwatchable. What they did to Ramjet, Thrust & Dirge makes me sick (coneheads) but the Gobots took it to a whole new level. Leader-1 with a human face is 100% unacceptable. And my favorite character Cop-Tur? I love the Gobots toys but I'm trying to forget the cartoon.

You will never know how sick you just made me. I can't believe anybody could support the cartoon over the awesome toys. If you guys support the cartoon over the toy designs then I guess I'll have to forget about ever seeing the Gobots again & just enjoy my memories.

That picture of Leader-1 above looks like the Silver Surfer with goggles. Seriously, what is wrong with you people??? I just don't understand. And Scooter? You actually liked Scooter in the cartoon? Is that even possible?

the cartoon was great for it's time fun a lot of what we see in transformers law was lifted from CotG-B.

i'm a huge go-bots fan and can say with certainty that this only could've happened because of Warner Bros.


….hmmm scrub that just seen that Cy-Kill looks like the toy [-(

Scooter was a great character in the cartoon I don't think you understood him tbh (I think you're just remembering the annoying voice)

Not only are the cartoon licenses being owned by Warner Bros an issue, but even moreso are the original toys being owned by Bandai. Since the cartoon likenesses are meant to resemble those original toys, Hasbro isn't comfortable with making new toys that resemble a rival company's old product, as that would be free advertisement for said rival's product.

The previous case of Movie Fracture only happened because Joe Kyde had to prove that its deco was based on that of a real life race car, but its pink face w/ yellow eyes was still overtly based on Crasher (and "Crasher" was even the name that the toy was originally supposed to have, no less) to the point that it left Hasbro feeling uncomfortable, basically telling Kyde "We let this happen once, but please don't do it again."

I don't get what you mean, Leader-1's face looks like every other G1 Transformer.

Do you hate their human faces too?

I think it's a bigger problem when your blatantly insulting others for preferring something else over what you want, honestly it's stuff like that which makes me sick.

The comic will either be cartoon or toy accurate, and those who prefer one over the other is gonna have to deal with it if their choice isn't picked.

So just like how you gotta deal with there being a Bumblebee movie your gonna possible deal with a Go-Bots comic that looks like the cartoon instead of the toys.

Aw, he uses the plain-looking toy face/Bike Robo face from Machine Robo. I was hoping he'd have the five o'clock shadow face his cartoon model had.

It depends on the rights i guess
..but maybe after a battle he ends up looking like the TV show version.
In the show Cy-Kill wasn't always a renegade he used to fight along side Leader-1 as a guardian

Reading the synopsis, I don't think they are going the show route with this. I think (no evidence just opinion) that they may hope that this is to challenge of the go-bots, what idw g1 is to cartoon/toy bio/marvel comic/dreamwave comic g1...if you catch my drift.

I 100% get that this is a new continuity altogether, beholden to nothing from the cartoon's continuity.

Nevertheless, the design for Leader-1 uses his cartoon face design instead of his toy face/Eagle Robo face design, so I was kinda hoping Cy-Kill would follow in suit.

And for many, the cartoon faces are iconic enough that they're regarded as the definitive look of at least the most prominent of the characters (the main six, Fitor, Small Foot, Doctor Go, etc.), so since at least Leader-1 got to have his used instead of his very different-looking toy face, I'd hope that we could see more of them used.

Maybe we could wait till we get a look of some interior art, while probable it will be these designs here, there's still a chance it will be different.

On the other hand maybe this story will explain how some of the faces changed as the renegades rebel. Just a possibility.
