He's a bad guy and he has his MR-34 Renegade designation right on him. If he isn't released as Spoon, I see a lot of Nerdrage that will occur.

I had no interest in Dirt Boss, but Spoon is a definite grab. Finally it looks like BugBite's warning more would be crossing over may finally bear more fruit.

Good move on their part.

Now Bugbite and Crasher won't be so alone. :D

(I already bought Dirtboss for this reason...but, hey, upgrades are cool. And this time...he wanted to be the red one.)

I love the silver paint on the limbs. I hope the final retail version is as shiny as it looks in those pics.

That is awesome that they put the Machine Robot designation on the figure. Runs to ebay to buy a GoBots Spoons for future comparison pics.

Done!

I own every Gobot that has made it into the Transformers Universe plus Leader-1 and Cy-Kill. Now I've got Spoons. One day I'll bust out these Gobots for the galleries here on Seibertron.com. Maybe once Spoons comes out.

Looking forward to the pics Ryan, but honestly, with Hasbro owning the Go-Bots license and all, It would be nifty if Vector Sigma and the galleries were expanded to include the Go-Bots lines.

I didnt buy the green one cause I really dont like the mold but then again I just realized I had Spoons in the Closet with my Gobots. he's a little banged up cause I found him lying in the beach as a small child but maybe I should buy him just toy have the homage mold like I bought the Crasher homage since I have crasher too.

The GIANT ARM BLADES don't do it for you?

Not sure about the blades cause once something is too big, it looks out of proportion rather then threatening. Hey I pulled Spoon out the closet. Now that I see both together, I think the grey does not go with the original Gobot paint scheme to be an accurate homage. Anbody else agree ???

Must be one hell of a legal nightmare to get the trademark "Spoon".

The grey and silver is an acceptable addition to the adaptation. Because for one it makes the coloration in vehicle mode more realistic. We have similar looking forklifts at work, right down to the shade of red-orange, and it matches this pretty well.

The other is that a solid lump of orange isn't going to look very interesting or sell.

The gray is fine seeing most Spoons had a gray chest and the robot mode is suppose to have the lift blades folded up on the leg not left sticking out.

Strange that yours had an orange chest. Are you sure it's an Original, seeing the archive says he wasn't remolded/recolored.

This is so much win I just have to buy it.

Spoons is a Gobot from the mid-80's. Not sure if he was a good guy or bad guy cause I never had the original packaging. You guys got some good points...I do agree that the grey makes a more realistic looking forklift. I never knew a grey chest version of the original Gobot existed. I googled and all I got was the all orange version I have. I found this guy at the beach as a child so he is a little banged up. He is missing a clip-on piece at the waist and the forklifts are so loose they wont stay up at the legs in robot mode...LOL. Does anybody have a picture of the grey chest version of spoon to compare to the new homage figure ???

Spoons was a member of the Renegade faction of Gobots toys.
