    New dirt boss repaint not inspired by go-bot!

    I dont think the new OrangeDirt Boss repaint is not inspired by the Go-Bot, but by what originally inspired the whole toy of Dirt Boss in the first place: The 2007 movie game drone! Check it out....:

    There IS such a thing as both answers being correct (or at least reasonably acceptable) in this case.

    between the mr-34 and the go-bot link for spoons states their were variation like orange and black, i think there is a strong case for a homage. it's already known that the dirt boss toy was inspired by the 2007 fork lift drone, but this is not a repaint that match it.

    The Design for the toy itself was inspired by the video game from the first movie. However, your thread title is wrong. The repaint is inspired by the go-bot. Therefore, you lose.

    Yeah guys, the OP is such an IDIOT for thinking that maybe the new toy was referencing something else that was a logical reference and had the same character model. ;) 

    I think the toy is based on Scrapper, and the new repaint is Spoons. Should make Vangelus happy.

    The MR-34 pretty much negates the OP's opinion.

    You're missing the point, he was saying it was A. Scrapper, and a lot of people think its B. Spoons, when really its D. All of the above.

    I'd say a repaint that is tribute to the Go-Bot while making the colors fit in better with the movie Constructicon color pallet.

    Toy is from the drone, but the repaint is from Spoons, as has been said.
    (And the orange drone in the game picture reminds me of a Spartan from Halo for some reason....)

    At last, we have a 2007 Scrapper!

    Now, only if they would make a Mixmaster...

    This, too.

    No, no, I wasn't talking about you. You actually gave him proof without being insulting, whereas the others told the OP to stop eating babies, and claiming he was in denial.
