    I had a lot of Go-Bots toys, but only one diaclone jet toy. I watched both TF and GB as a small gaffer and loved them both about the same, but if both was on at the same time, I'd always watched TF over GB.

    I still have a soft spot for GB, and since my GB toys were long since broken and thrown out, I didn't have any until I was in my mid adult life now. However the only one GB toy that I needed to have was Dive-Dive. He was my favorite GB toy that had quite the transformation that's involved and still fun to do for such a small thing. Though I have to be gentle since the diecast can easily wear out to a floppy mess, as I discovered in my youth.

    I didn't know that the GB was on DVD, I'm gonna have to track them down now. :D 

    But I'm afraid that I have to echo everyone else that Hasbro's Go-Bots has nothing to do with Challenge of the Go-Bots. :(

    Sounds like the new age under Five line when Rescue bots ends.

    Is it just me, or is it possible that Transformers has gone on as long as it can, and Go-bots is planned as it's replacement, with a completely new story? If so, could we be in for Generations quality Go-Bots? I mean, how many times can Hasbro keep re-making Optimus Prime? If so, I'm almost relieved! In a sad kind of way. Like being thankful that a loved one is finally dead and no longer suffering.

    I knew it all along. You are a Gobot fan. :D 

    But yeah that combiner is a thing of beauty.

    Also is that Toyota Trueno somewhere in there?

    They did a Crasher homage in the first Movie line, it was a repaint of Classics Mirage, and a damn fine toy at that.

    So, am I the only one who would still be totally excited if this was a DVD release by shout factory of the three or four episodes of animation produced for the preschool versions of Gobots from around the Unicron trilogy era?

    I'm a fiction completist since selling most of my toys, and two of the episodes only exist in vhs quality downloads... so even that would be cool to me.

    Can Hasbro ever put out a Transformers Vs. Gobots animated movie?

    they own gobots. surely they can.

    gobots are much MUCh better then people give them credit for, here.

    while i like broadside, Man-O-War, is clearly the better figure. Pathfinder vs cosmos, i like pathfinder more, same goes for smallfoot vs gears. to me they are clearly the better figures.

    if you compare the smaller transformers to the gobots, both of which are simple. gobots easily competes. sure shockwave is cool, and one of the best decepticon toys ever. but one also can not deny that that gobot laser gun, is awesome.

    they are quite amazing figures, for being roughly the size of hotwheels.

    especially if you compare to them to other transforming toys, the same size.

    and their combiner, did have the benefit of being able to do this. and that,

    and their model kits were pretty awesome too. would make harmony gold cry today.

    and the gobot tanks and then there is this one.

    Way too many folks sleep on Gobots. There are some really great figures and some very accurate vehicle modes in that line. I'm totaly fine with the majority of fans not collecting gobots though, it keeps the prices down.

    Thats the big thing here. Gobots are humans minds put in robots. It's a whole planet turned into machines! They didn't have a choice also! How would humans deal with this if everyone on earth was turned into a transforming robot! How would they keep order when a 5 year old kid might now be able to turn into a huge tank or a gun! This could make a great live action movie if done right!

    Also keep bay away from gobots! Half the gobots are female and we know from arcee that bay hates "ugly female robots!" (his own words!)

    I'm pretty sure bay has been confirmed to not be directing tf5 at this point anyway.

    Yep, absolutely. Even boxed, minty Japanese originals are highly affordable.

    So GoBots might be in the Hasbro Movie Universe along side G.I. Joe, Micronauts and D&D as well as M.A.S.K., Rom, and Visionaries. Seeing how in 2015 they announced the Writers Room for the Hasbro Movie Universe, also in 2015 Hasbro and Paramount announced that they are going to make a Beyblade movie so that might be in the Hasbro Movie Universe as well.
