So really there is no difference.  They're both about robots that can transform into cars and planes and other things.  Awesome.  Thanks for the info.

Pretty much :D Go-Bots tended to be smaller scale toys and that's about it really.

And further proof of your Transformers Fanboy status.   ;)

Even as a kid, I thought go-bots was a cheap knock-off cartoon and refused to watch.  That isn't entirely an accurate opinion, but you have to admit that even the go-bots names suck compared to the likes of Megatron, Jazz and Optimus Prime.   Tell me a go-bot that can make you say, "Hell yeah!" like you do at the mention of "Optimus Prime."

I can't really comment on the go-bot show.  I never really watched.  I think I had some go-bot toys though.  Also, not as cool as my transformer toys!

Yeah I loved how their names are hm exactly what they are Cop-Tor is a 'Copter, Scooter is, amazingly, a scooter (and he talks like Slimer).

Oh and then there were the rock lords: wow it's a robot... that turns into a rock. I suppose I could throw this at my sister or something.

Actually I was mostly into books and bikes and carties and the like when I was a littlun.

And I think in Japan his character (the toy not the cartoon) was actually heroic, weird are the ways of translation.

Why is this in the TV section.  and By the way, I am nither a Go Bot nor a hula hoop!  So there!

I figured Transformers and The Go-Bots were television shows, and I followed my instincts.  Plus they don't have a category specifically for annoying Sideswipe.  They should though.

You know, we should discuss your feelings about the film in a dark, secluded alley sometime.   ;D

The only thing I ever really took from the Go-Bots show (what little I saw of it doing my little kiddy channel-flip ritual on Saturday mornings) and toys is that they look like even cheaper, crappier toys than the Transformers were. At least the Transformers LOOKED passably like what they were supposed to be transformed into, and then the robot bits came out. The Go-Bots looked like motorcycles with faces underneath... completely cheap, lame, and stupid.

Oh, i'm not a Michael Bay Fanboy, I mean yes I did like the Rock and Transformers... but that's about the extent of my fanboyism, if in fact you can call it such.  ;)
