    I wonder what people would have thought of these if they were actually released.

    But they look awesome!

    IMPORTANT!
    These things need "Final" names, now they are out there in the secondary market and Hasbro never got around to naming them, I think it is up to everyone here.

    In the auction I call them:
    "GTP Racer"
    "911 Police Car"
    "Black Viper"
    “Jerry’s Pizza/Vinny’s Pro Stock”
    “Hound”
    “Purple Mercedes Benz SL500 sport coupé”
    (those names are from info already out there and guesswork)

    I think this board should decide some of their final names for posterity.

    Regarding:
    “Jerry’s Pizza/Vinny’s Pro Stock”
    I think it would be cool if both Jerry and Vinny are associated with the new name (I believe I know exactly who Jerry and Vinny are) So maybe something with JV in the title?

    “Hound”
    Hound is probably okay as a name?
    the exact graphics say "I9HOUND960" could be "19HOUND960"

    “Purple Mercedes Benz SL500 sport coupé”
    too long

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    i had no idea that some of them had weapon storage between their legs until now. although checking with mine, it appears some of them do not have the right weapons coming with them. as they *the RID ones* seem to not be a good fit. i've only managed to get one gun *i have all of the ones released, besides repaints.* to actually fit in any of their legs. and it was from a different one of them. i think it was prowl 2; with sideburn 2's gun.

    couldn't get Daytonus's gun to fit.

    Are they hot wheels? I seriously do not see any gaps and joints.

    All of the G2 Gobots were made to look like Hot Wheels. However, you should be able to easily see gaps on "Hound" and the pimpmobile (the purple one with gold rims). Also, the purple-white-blue (popsicle colors? really?) was released in the RiD line as "Daytonus". Also, the police car is on the TFWiki as an unreleased prototype that didn't have the light bar and was colored pink.

    That's a pretty big honor to solicit names from people here on the boards. It's appreciated.

    I'll try to put some useful thought into these.

    Re: "Hound" - I think many people here would think that is exactly the name for that one. It was undoubtedly intended to be that by Hasbro since they had been using names from other G1 characters for the G2 Gobots. They were also going to name another unreleased figure "Sgt. Hound" and that figure may be among the other unreleased Transformers toys your client has.

    “Purple Mercedes Benz SL500 sport coupé”
    My previous post mentioned that the color scheme on that looks like the stereo-typical "pimpmobile". That's not exactly a very dignified name, though. In that vein, however, there's already a G1 Transformer with a pimp-like name: "Big Daddy"

    "911 Police Car"
    Also my previous post mentioned this piece has been previously seen, but with some alterations. Due to those changes and having the older-style blue and white police colors, my suggestion would be "Dayshift"

    "GTP Racer"
    Again referencing my last post, this piece has a color scheme commonly found on popsicles. Combining that with several of the early Autobot cars having names of car parts or automobile-related terms, my suggestion for this one is "Popclutch"

    "Black Viper"
    My reflex on this one would be to go with "Nightviper", which is the name of a Maximal from the Beast Machines line. However, the 2nd ever Botcon-exclusive was a recolored G2 Gobot with the name "Nightracer", so this piece having "night" in the name makes it feel less unique. Of course, within the Viper family of snakes there is a well-known melanistic example, making that my suggestion: "Black Adder"

    Unfortunately, that's where I run out of ideas. For the last one “Jerry’s Pizza/Vinny’s Pro Stock”, I don't have anything even approaching a good suggestion. The only thing that comes to mind with both J&V is "VoltJump", but that doesn't seem to fit very well.

    Hopefully, you'll find at least one of these to be a useful suggestion.

    This guy actually has a name!

    I've attached a photo of a later (?) version from an auction a few years ago. Aside from some different colors (yellow instead of white "Pizza" and "Jerry's"), this one also has his name on his front bumper.

    Transformers collecting has left the building.

    A grand for 6 Go-bots? F--king Go-bots? The most shitty Transformers ever.

    I wouldn't give you 5 quid for them.

    Wow. Some people have more money than sense.

    Go-bots!!!?? Really?

    I need to go lie down.
