    I used to have a GOBOT back in the day called "Good Knight." HE was a red Royce or something. I swear Scout class HUBCAP is a dead ringer for him. Is Hubcap suppossed to be a crossover homage, much like how they repainted the Classics Mirage mold into Gobot CRASHER?

    See attachment below. (The top two on the left are the Gobot Good Knight. Hubcap is the bottom and the right)

    They don't look that much alike, other then them both being red vintage cars. But Hubcap is hot-rodded out.

    I could be wrong but even the heads look similar to me, though I haven't gotten a good closeup look at Hubcaps head for sure yet. When I was kid I didn't have enough money to buy real TF's, so I'd buy Gobots instead and pretend they were TF's. THis is the one Gobot I never pretended to be a TF. I just liked him the way he was. I'm definitely gonna buy Hubcap though, not only cuz he looks like the gobot, but it actually looks really cool IMO. Hubcap FTW for scouts

    Good Knight seems to have a human mouth and a visor. Hubcap has two eyes and a grille mouth.

    I will agree that Hubcap looks really cool, though. I really want both him and Brimstone.

    Oh, and is Hubcap a vintage car? Or is it a PT Cruiser?

    I don't believe he is that said its possible he could be retooled to be Good Knight but liberties would have to be taken.

    No. One is a hot rod and the other is a Rolls Royce. The only similarity is that they're red.

    They look as much alike as Classics Prowl and G1 Prowl. Very well could be what you suggest. Hasbro may have changed up the alt mode to help it appeal to kids. Who wants an old luxury car? But an old Hot Rod? Yeah!
