    Anyone like gobots? I like 'em 'cause they've got some cool, if not really robotic, robot modes. Their box art is also kick-arse too. :D  The only thing I don't like is the show. EVERYONE hates that. :rolleyes2 

    Oh yeah, I don't need anyone trying to derail the thread ( Jux..)

    man, you see the thread I posted about my gobots haul? I'm with ya in the gobots fanclub! what I like about them, compared to transformers is that they're all the same size, and they don't all use the similar transformation scheme.

    I am a Gobot fan. The toys were (mostly) great, but the show was terrible.

    Do you think we'll see a Go-bots DVD boxset?

    P.S., I like Gobots. I recently reaquired two of my favs from childhood. Baron Von Joy and Staks.

    I dont think I had too many gobots as a kid, and I barely remember the show at all.

    I wouldn't mind snagging it on netflix if it came out.

    Now I want to look at gobots

    *runs off in the general direction of ebay*

    Yeah, they're okay for basics. I've got a handful of them including Crasher, Turbo, Vamp, and a few others.

    I always liked tux,screw head(!), and fitor. It's funny because in the machine robo series screw head(rod drill) anf fitor(blue jet) are the good guys in the series instead of renegades in the U.S.

    I am actually more into working on my go-bot collection than my TF's right now. The prices are better and I can realistically shoot for a complete carded set. I am currently at 22, and counting.

    What sucks though is this past winter I got a MOC Pumper, and as I was loading him into a star case the blister just dropped off of the card. It's not a total loss though because I now have a loose Pumper complete with his tiny-ass gun.

    I am also trying to finish up my series of series 3 Super Go-bots. All I need is Throttle and Clutch.

    I'll always stay a big fan of the Gobots.
    Wish they'd bring them back in some multipacks or something. Or under the Titanium line.

    <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    These arnt the Droids your looking for move along.

    Seriously though lets not go down this road please.


    Anyway, ya I have to admit I was a fan of Go-Bots growing up. Still no were near the level of TF's but still a great part of childhood no doubt :D 

    Man I can actually remember having the Renegade's star cruiser ship, man that thing was awesome, speaking of which does anyone have any pics of it?

    Always liked Cop-Tor (think that;s the right spelling) was always my fav, for some reason always reminded me of a KO Soundwave :lol 

    Great pics too in this thread, take more :rock

    first off, want good and awsome go-bot pics go to toyarcive.com damn him and all his awsomeness, lol

    I have around 50-80 go bots right now...i can't find them though, lost in the boxes in my garage of doom/toy heaven.

    go bots rocked for the simple fact that, though they were cheaply made at times, they were so cheap compared to Transformers high prices. Bad thing was relative bought them when you asked for transformers, lol. Rock lords had the narlies and a few other sets icluding crystal rock lords (i have 1) and even dino's!

    my fave go bot item i have is a VERY rare KO called Galgo Robots (i have it spelled wrong on my site, need to fix it) you'll see Alex at toyarchive has another in the set, between him and me i've never seen any other pics of this line.

    Anyone know where to find episodes of the Gobots? I don't remember the show being awesome, but, I don't exactly remember major suckage either. Above all else, I always liked the Gobot's sturdy feel. Super Cykill is one tough brick!!
