    I have begun to collect them i have 3 of 6 ( Goldbug, Chase and Roll Bar). I love them they are great little figures in my opinion to complicated but fun to mess around with.

    so what do all you fine people think of them?

    Always love the Throttlebots for sheer nostalgia. Rollbar is my favourite for some reason.

    I think they're awesome. Used to have Goldbug when I was a kid. Might try to collect them again.

    I have 2 (Freeway & Rollbar) and I think they're neat-o.

    Got the full set of six. Nice little toys, I especially love Searchlight with all those headlights on the front of his car.

    Goldbug was one of the first G1 figures I ever bought, and he's so full of awesome. Get the rest if you can. I really want Chase and Wideload.

    Like most G1s, I love seeing them displayed together as a subgroup.
    I tend to like them better as a set than individually. but if I had to pick my favorite, I'd have to go with Searchlight as well.

    They look like ass but I like 'em as characters thanks to the marvel comics so I wouldn't mind having them.

    I love them. I have all six. Just really wish they'd update them. GB'd be an easy BB repaint with a new head I suppose.

    I have all 6. Searchlight is my favorite. They certainly do look better when displayed as a set.

    I loved em when I was a kid. They don't do much for me these days but I do like having them with my Season 3 characters. Gotta give some love to Searchlight too. Those spotlights are pretty distinctive.
