    Any chance you can get a pic of Skylynx with a blue ribbon tied wistfully around his neck?

    You're welcome.

    Machine Robo/Gobots was a great toyline. I only really discovered the figures a few years ago; I have since collected a fair number of them, though. One of my favourites is Sanitation Robo/Flytrap.

    The Super Gobots that came at the end of the line were pretty amazing, IMO. I had a ton of them since I seemed to manage to talk my parents into buying one whenever they went to Costco. Lots of diecast and great paint jobs. Just about all of them except the cars were fun. Leader-1 was a better jet transformer than the seekers since his transformation didn't involve removing the wings on the jet, and Spay-c has an amazing design for a transforming space shuttle. The cars are somewhat disappointing, in that most of them cheat and use the driver cabin as the head (a result of machine-robo's mecha design, I'm sure).

    The names and the fiction killed them though (come on - Spay-c, really?). Al least they are cheap though now. I'm now browsing around on ebay to find a spay-c to replace mine (it's paint worn, and the pins that hold the wing in fell out. Nothing is broken though, amazingly).

    Well since I brought the go bots up into a dedicated transformers line its only natural that I must make amends, here you go (excuse Menasor and Actionmaster Jazz they are KOs):

    Normally I'd forgive you but last night I ended up buying this

    IMG_20171009_122308.jpg
    So I'm not sure if I ever can forgive or if my soul will ever be clean now ;) 

    Bought mainly for crasher, Spay-c and, keeping it G1, warpath. Had a few of him but always with broken turrets, be nice to have a KABOOOM one without BLAMMMMO damage.

    Still missing a decent Cosmos but I'm sure he's not too hard to pick up.

    I for one actually love the original Pretenders, I used to try and imagine what those spindly folded robot alt-modes would look like if actualized into reality and stylized ever so slightly (I suppose sort of like their comics appearances).

    Yeah, I'd be tempted to buy that as an MT Downbeat recolor.

    YESSS!!!! That is just awesome.

    I just got to my desk at work and I'm very glad to be the first one in the office because I just laughed right out loud at that. Well done, sir.

    Also freaking amazing that you have two copies of CW Skylynx. Wow. :cool: 

    100% agree! :D
