When I got back into TFs a couple of years ago, I remembered having some Gobots when I was younger. With a recent aquisition of Gobot Puzzler, I am reminded how simple and plain they were; yes, they were awesome in that easy kind of way. Then I found an old Gobots episode on youtube, the first time I watched such an episode in 20 years. My God, it was terrible. Makes G1 TFs cartoon look like a Speildberg masterpiece. The animation was atrocious, the plot lines silly and goofy and extremely unbelievable, even for a kid. I just had to share my shockedness with you all. I still think the toys, simple though they may be, are cool in their own rights, but would not actively collect past the one or two I have lying around.
