Today, I'll address those much-maligned Tonka 'transformers,' the glorious GoBots. They may have been condemned to obscurity by the popularity of their Cybertronian rivals,
5. Scooter: The goofy kid sidekick, more or less the Bumblebee of GoBots. Not surprisingly, Scooter transformed into a scooter. Someone in my town has a little red motorscooter that always reminds me of the GoBots' most endearing character.
4. Cy-Kill: the sinister leader of the...oh, forget this. You know, I was all ready to go over the Go-Bots, to give them some recognition. I mean, as a kid, I wasn't real discerning when I bought toys or watched cartoons, and I know I watched GoBots. I had some of the figures, and I must have really liked the Rock Lords spinoff, since I ended up with quite a few toys from that line. But I can't even name five GoBots. Not that I'd want to--Leader-1? Cy-Kill? Scooter? No wonder the line failed. Who could take them seriously? Screw GoBots.
It wasn't so much that the GoBots sucked as it was that they simply weren't Transformers. GoBots always seemed to me like a toy you "settled" on instead of actually wanting.
I can! Bug bite, leader-one, pathfinder, tracks, and smallfoot.
All go-bots who later were used as transformers even.
Yeah, what Anon said. Apparantly there are a group of Transformers who were originally GoBots. Someones actually doing a comic on it according to David Willis of Shortpacked...
