    Found this on youtube.

    It was from an episode of the gobots cartoon.

    It's funny that they insulted gobots during an episode of the Go-Bots!

    The commercial shows up half way in the clip.



    What do you guys think of this?

    I don't think it was a bash on Gobots so much as it was an announcement on Hasbro's part to deter people from picking up bootleg G1's that came out while G1 was running.

    I'm pretty sure it was knockin' on Gobots.

    When I was a kid and I saw this commercial, that's what they were talking about. Kid's don't know from bootlegs, but they can damn sure tell that Transformers and Gobots are not the same.

    I think it's funny as hell!!!:D  I remember when I was a kid I got a Gobot as a gift instead of a Transformer.:mad  I right away knew the difference. It was nothing like the Transformers I had....It was a horrible piece of crap.:thumbdown 

    Hell I still have it back in storage @ my parents house.

    I've seen the "Real Transformers" commercial before but never knew it was a Gobot commercial. Anyway, I wonder to this day how long the Gobots would have lasted if it weren't for the Rock Lords. I picked up some of the Gobots when they went on the discounted toy sale, even got Champion. None come close to being a Transformer.

    Best tf commmercial ever. However the emphasis on the autobot or decepticon logos and "the right to wear them" was to get the from knock off transformers. Though the way prime and megs are at the beginning sounds like the gobots would'nt fair very evenly against the aggravated hasbro bots.

    I actually have a knock off version of a gobot I had as a kid. The plane with water pontoons, anyway the knock off won't stay as a plane and it pinches my fingers when folding out the feet. that mold must have just worked better in metal.

    No, no it didn't. I had that one. It was a legitimate piece of crap.

    Actually the amount of metal in a "KO" Go-bot is the same as in a "legit" Go-bot.

    And as for the way that add was worded. Well remember how Takara had already sold the Diaclone molds in NA and Europe before they were remade into TF's...

    I ended up with a few Gobots given as presents by family members who thought they were real TFs. :(  In childhood battles on the bedroom floor, they were always first to die...

    I thought the Rolls Royce-GoBot whose robot mode had a top hat was kinda awesome.

    "Only WE have the right to be called The Transformers!"

    I love how Peter Cullen over-emphasized that phrase. I vaguely remember this commercial. However, I do remember the power strugle (if you want to call it that) that went on between the Hasbro toy line and the Tonka toy line.

    All your base are belong to... The Transformers. lawlz!
