Okay, this is a 1985 GoBots book The Power Machine, but I honestly consider all GoBots things rolled into Transformers these days, since Hasbro bought the rights to them, and half the GoBots cast have appeared in Transformers fiction. The Power Machine is one of those kids books written in 1985 to cash in on the GoBots success, and this one seems to clearly take a page right out of early Transformers plots. The Renegades attack a plant, try to make some not-Energon Cubes to take over the Earth, get defeated, and run off. The cast of the story is just the main 6 GoBots of the series, and the main 4 humans. In fact the only other people seen in the book are some sleeping station guards and the police, none of which speak. Here is my synopsis: The book was written by Dwight Jon Zimmerman and illustrated by Leopoldo Duranona. Zimmerman is a children's author, and has also written She-Ra, Centurions and Starcom books, as well as recently co-authoring the book Lincoln's Last Days with Bill O'Riley! He wrote for GI Joe for Marvel Comics and wrote the at least eight Transformers books, like The Great Car Rally and The Autobot Smasher. Some notes: •In this story most humans, including the authorities, don't seem to know about the existance of the GoBots, and both sides work to keep their presence a secret. •Nick refers to himself as a "super hacker". (So he's like a blonde Chip Chase with legs) •Cop-Tur performs his trick of flying upside down to cut the tops off trees. (He does this in the TV series too!) •Doctor Braxis is called Professor Braxis in this story.
