    Gobots

    I've been going through old boxes in my attic and finding many of my old toy treasures including lots of Gobots and thought maybe it's time to have a Gobots thread and post some pictures and memories. Not sure if anyone else used to battle their Transformers against their Gobots but for me as a kid my imagination was constantly in overdrive mixing various toy lines like G.I. Joe meets Star Wars, Battle of the Robots, Secret Wars vs. Super Powers etc...

    so let's see some Gobots posts.... let's show some love to this cool line of similar transforming robots that look suspiciously like some Autobots and Decepticons....

    so far I've unboxed the following Gobots from my attic:

    Cy-Kill
    Leader 1
    Spay-C
    Small Foot
    Road Ranger
    Man-O-War
    Cop-Tur
    Van Guard
    Zeemon
    Baron Von Joy
    Puzzler
    Turbo
    Selectman
    Hans Cuff
    Res-Q
    Clutch
    Stinger
    Ace
    Heat Seeker
    Zero
    Destroyer
    Mach-3
    Gunnyr
    Royal-T
    Good Knight
    Night Ranger
    Tux
    Bad Boy
    Mr. Moto
    Crasher
    Street Heat
    Spoiler

    Back in the day the only Gobots I had were Leader 1 and then the cheapy stuff such as the smaller "gobots" such as the jeep one, a white submarine, and one gobot that was a bug insect bad guy whatever he was

    As a kid, even though they were made cheaper and didn't have as sophisticated a cartoon backing them up, I always preferred Gobots. 9 times out of 10 I was always very disappointed by Transformers in Robot form. Whereas most of the time I Gobots looked strikingly good both ways.

    DarkArtist- If this were a for sale thread, my response definitely would be "PM Sent".

    yes Gobots were a kinda cheaper version of the Transformers but I agree with DarthPete that they looked great in both robot and vehicle mode... sometimes being somewhat superior to the Hasbro Transformers from back in the day. I've been posting pics on my twitter feed of all the Gobots that I've been finding boxed away in my attic or ones that I find at toy shows and a wave of great memories keep bouncing back to me. it truly is a form of "Toy Therapy" in many ways. I can let the stress of a hard day's work or family situations melt away by just playing with my old toys and remembering the fun time of just being a kid.

    I love the Go-Bots. Transformers are nicer in many ways, but I really liked the Go-Bots and still have some. They were simpler, in my opinion.
