    Any Go-Bots fans here? It's just recently that I started being interested in that stuff again. When I was a kid, I remember getting a few but except for my incomplete Command Center, I lost them all over time. I should shortly receive a MIB Puzzler, MIB Super Leader-1 and a Super Cy-Kill, and I'm already looking for more.

    I have Puzzler and Monstrous, very nice combiners IMO. I think they're better (Puzzler especially) than most of the G1 combiners in design.

    I had a Puzzler and I sold it on ebay. Idiot.
    I have an original MachineRobo Tank and Cop-tur. MIB
    I also have an original Gobots Cy-Kill and Tank. Complete with partially sealed bubbles on the cards.
    I also have the European release of Super Cy-Kill (silver accents, not grey)
    Last but not leasethe two Porsches, Herr Fiend MIB and Baron Von Joy

    I have a few but have long since forgotten their names. I hope the TV series gets released on DVD.

    I dont currently own any gobots, but I'll likely buy some when I have more money. I like quite a lot of them. Monstrous, Grungy, and Defendor are all really cool (I love the fact that Monstrous' Japanese name is "Devil Satan." Coolest name ever). I'd like the Command Center as well. As for the smaller ones, there are a lot of good ones, but I'd really like Water Walk for sentimental reasons, and Tux because he's just cool. Hell, I'd probably even dip into the Rock Lords, I loved them as a kid

    I have a ton. I am pretty much down to the harder to get later series to finish the line. I even started buying a lot of MOC ones too because the prices are still within reason.

    I am almost done with all of the Series 3 deluxe Go-Bots too, which are pretty damn hard to come by. They are some of the coolest Go-Bots out there too.

    It's too bad the toy line was attached to such a lousy cartoon because I think it has caused the line some negative stigma. The toys had so much going for them:

    -They are FAR cooler than any of the min-bots
    -Great transforming toys that can go disguised amongst any one of a trillion Hot-Wheel or Matchbox
    -Have a HUGE array of vehicles including a garbage truck, the Apollo rocket, a mini, a UFO, a scooter, and on and on.
    -Were cheap and die-cast
    -Small enough where a big collection won't take up much room
    -Completely self contained combiners
    -Have a big enough line, and a small enough segment of the market place to make collecting them both fun and challenging. Not to mention that most can be bought for fairly cheap.

    I really love me some Go-Bots

    Some of the Go-Bots had cool designs but their names are beyond retarded. I have several I've used in my TF army since I was a kid. I still want to get me a Puzzler really badly.

    I was collecing them before I got into Transformers. They were initially released in Australia as Machine Men and had names like Cycle Man( for Cy-Kill), Porsche Man(Crasher) etc. Some of them were really cool.

    I'd totally dig on getting some more. I only have a few right now (super leader-1, super cykill, super herr fiend, and a few others)...and I don't have any of them that I had as a kid (Turbo was my favorite, but he's long gone somewhere).

    Wow, I received my MIB Super Leader-1 today. Never removed from the foam tray, unused sticker sheet... I love it! It has a lot of die-cast, it's simple, it looks sleek in jet mode. I'll post pictures later.

    I'm not sure if it's a gobot or not, I think it is, but it's a red and blue jet that's kind of like a combiner, but his combiner parts are not other vehicles. His chest can open and I used to put micromachine jets in there; it was cool. I still have it somewhere

    Awesome stuff! I love Road Ranger, I love how they've been able to integrate the cab and trailer into one functional unit.

    Are you talking about the jet with the powersuits? I wanna get one, I think it's pretty cool concept for a combiner.

    Umm, maybe? If I had a pic I'd be able to tell you. I think I confirmed a long time ago, or at least what feels like a long time ago, that he is a gobot. I just can't seem to summon the name.

    Yeah, I sounds like the power suits jet.

    The Japanese Machine Robo Wedge book is fantastic. it has pics of just about every Gobot/Machine Robo.
