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.

 Well, you forgot the part where they sucked ass in nearly every way possible compared to Transformers. I wish I could say I'm biased, but the vast majority of robot collectors pretty much agree with me. There were a few cool Gobot toys and characters, but the ratio between cool Gobots vs cool Transformers is laughable. Optimus Prime and Megatron are pretty much classified as cultural icons at this point, known by at least two generations. Gobots are unknown to most people born after the late 80s.

  As a sidenote, I recall the Gobot motto being "Mighty robots! Mighty vehicles!" or somesuch.


And from our ":Japan, what are they on?" department,

Transformers: Kiss Players

If you don't mind me asking, what in holy hell is that?

  It's Japanese. That's all you need to know.  :)

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.
Fear not my friend! Eventually they shall have an entire section for Transformers the day the rifftrax comes out.

*sigh* ... here I was thinking that all this Transformers nonsense was finally gonna stop  :D




hehe, just kidding, I've never seen Transformers so I can't in good conscience call it nonsense anymore than anyone who's never seen my childhood cartoons could call them "nonsense". I did like the Transformers movie by the way. Sure it had its stupid moments, like the coolant leaking scene, the transformers hiding from the parents, etcetera... but over all it was a fun popcorn action flick.

It's a world where transformers are powered by the kisses of little girls, and no it's not a sweet and innocent thing at all. The Megatron has a tongue shaped like a penis.

I did say it was from our "Japan, what are they on?" department ;)

Let's just say this line of toys and it's attendant manga are not exactly aimed at the kids.

Just think the angst on this board when Michael Bay comes out in 2009 with "Transformers vs The Go-Bots".

"Look out Optimus Prime, here comes Strong-Bot".   

Maybe they can get the two guys who played Anikin Skywalker to be in the movie.    They can be brothers whole learn the real meaning of XMAS from Christmas-Bot.
