    Since I posted my Animated Gobot Turbo, I figure I'd post pics of my other Gobot upgrades. Enjoy.

    Man as much as I think Go Bots are ridiculously lame, your sweet customs make them a hell of a lot cooler in my book. You are still doing more right? I'm pretty sure I saw a wip thread of a Leader 1 made from a classics Starscream posted by you.

    Man those are sweet. I'm gonna work on some go-bots myself. I used to love that tank guy, Blaster I think was his name. Good job on that one especially

    You are nuts! Gobots are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! Hot Wheels sized robots that fit in your pocket. Easy to take to school and play with at recess. Transformers is the reason come over to your house to play with you. Gobots is what you take to school because it was simple. ;) 

    Actually, I think someone else did the Leader 1 with Starscream.

    Yup.

    Thanks

    Blaster was by accident. I painted up Dropshot in those colors and then found that gobot and they matched! Dropshot/Blaster is part of my Green Team but he looks cool with my Gobot updates.

    I gotta agree with Stratonrye- Gobots were kinda lame. Yours, on the other hand, are awesome! I probably would have liked them more as a kid if they were as cool as yours.

    I think the reason Gobots were "lame" was because the cartoon characters were made to look exactly like the toys. What if Transformers was animated the same exact way? The characters on the cartoon looked WAY better than the actual toys but the toys were still awesome. That's my theory at least.

    In terms of cartoon, Gobots vs. Transformers? TF wins every time. In terms of toys, I loved both about the same.

    Thanks for all the comments though. :)

    I dunno...I tend to take the position that Hanna-Barbera got it mostly right with the Gobots' animation models, save for the heads. Having the Gobots shoot lasers from their hands was a great way to sidestep the whole question of what their weapons were.

    Now the fact that Gobots were actually cyborgs...that's something I didn't agree with.

    These are all nice updates. Perhaps you'll end up joining myself, Red Alert, and a host of others as frequent Gobot customizers.

    It's scary how well these came out! Like each Transformer has a GoBot inside just itching to come out!

    the gobot show is kinda wack,i used to like the rock lords movie tho........

    but i had a shit load of Gobots back in my early years,i think they were not even "gobots" but whatever else they were called......

    for anyone thats actually owned a blue Buggyman or Crasher or Cy-Kill, etc....
    they are awesome die-cast robots about the size of Frenzy / Brawn, imagine if they had been bought for Transformers instead of Gobots, nobody would clown, and everyone would have them.

    My Renegades still get clowned on by my Decepticons, but they tend to tag along at times with my Quintessons

    And these are sick repaints I like the Cy-Kill and Cop-tur the best, it would look tight with the orange window. Crasher needs more black imo but still koo
