    Today I found three gobots MOSC that were a pepsi promotional. I can't find anything about them on the internet. The three are a jeep, a orange race car, and a plane/jet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I thought they were really cool especially because of the pepsi affiliation.

    Don't seem to be "Go-Bots", but Convert-Ables, whatever they are. Seems to use the same designs as Gobots though. That's Geeper-Creeper .

    I found an advertisement for it in the October 26th, 1985 issue of the Argus-Press.

    That's Water Walk and Slicks.

    Here is someone selling Pepsi Slicks on ebid.

    The JeEp is Jeeper Creeper. The orange car might be Crossword...? And the jet could be almost anybody. Can't be sure without seeing them.

    As an aside, I'd totally buy that Jeeper Creeper.

    The orange car could be...

    Crossword - Renegade - www.tfu.info

    OR...

    Scales - Renegade - www.tfu.info

    As for the plane/jet, there are many of those. Can you describe it a little more? It could be Leader-1, but that's just one of many possibilities as "plane/jet" is kind of vague.

    EDIT - Looks like Scaleface figured it out. Slicks did have a dark yellow deco that was separate from his black version. That would leave the plane as Waterwalk.

    Even if that's not an official Jeeper Creeper, that's totally worth buying if it comes with his gun.

    It's not a Gobot, but it's clearly based on the Machine Robo toys.

    So wait an minute, both Transformers and these guys had Pepsi promotions in 1985? That's sorta cool.

    My bet on the car would be Slicks since he was released in a lot of lines (a la Waterwalk and a bunch others).

    If I were selling them I would say between $40-50 each.

    That seems a bit high, doesn't it? They're Gobots knockoffs, not actual Gobots, which outside of the Pepsi promotion, don't go for more than a couple bucks each.

    But, if you can get that much for them, go for it. :)

    I just went a bit higher because I've been buying Go-Bots for a while and haven't seen many of these. I guess I pegged high on my perceived sense of rarity.

    Waterwalk (love that name) provides a good additional reason for someone to make that Triplechanger Seaplane design at some point.

    Did TF have one? I don't recall that. The GoBots would explain why I kept seeing them on pegs in grocery stores near the frozen food tubs.

    Not the first limited edition Go-Bots I've seen. I have a limited edition Spoons that was given to employees of a fork lift company. I can't find anything about it either. I had a thread about it years ago.
