    yep. found him today. used to have a whole bunch of Go-Bots but for some reason i sold them. anyways, i was looking around some thrift stores searching for "Don't Break The Ice" so i could use the ice for energon cubes and i find him for 25 cents. probably gonna repaint him to get rid of the scratches and maybe replace his batteries. hell, i might even give him some new lights.

    Aerobot. I had one of those and gave it to my ex's son so he would leave my "grown up" Transformers alone. It worked.

    Nice find. A surprisingly fun line.

    Now go find an original GoBot. That's hard hunting.

    I scored a minty fresh Scooter for $.50 last summer. :)

    No, those are the Playskool Go-Bots from about 10 years ago now. Those were great.

    Oh hey, the go-go-Go-Bots. I remember those. I found a whole sack of them at a nearby thrift store a few weeks ago, but I only left with a fellow named Beast-Bot that turns in to a raptor. He's pretty cool, makes for a nice "hipster decoration."

    So did I. Well, it was actually 50p, but close enough. Was chuffed to find one that had no play wear at all and nice tight joints.

    I don't come across a lot of original Gobots at car boot sales but it does happen now and then. I used to pass on ones that were missing the weapons but now I regret that. Off the top of my head car boot sales last year netted me:

    Scooter
    Road Ranger
    Good Knight
    Spy-Eye
    Baron Von Joy (the black version)
    Sky Jack
    Cy-Kill (the Super version)
    And the Rock Lord Granite.

    Best of all I think I paid in total less than £3 for all those.

    Playskool Gobots often crop up too but I decided to sell on most of the ones I found. I think in the end I only kept the Gorilla one and the Cheetor one.

    I really enjoy my Rescue Roy, though he was more the predecessor.

    Congrats on the find :)

    I got lured in thinking it was about an original GoBot, too.

    Still, nice find!

    I bought some of there on ebay for my 1 year old son. I got the formula 1 car in Mirage deco. G1 and G2 colored Sideswipe-esque car and a yellow dump truck guy for $10 shipped. He loves them as cars then he hands them to me to transform.
