Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

Sweeeeeeet~

This set is in my e-hobby top 5 list. I love it not just because I'm getting some minibots in funky colors, but also because of the thought that was put in the story behind it.

You are probably not allowed to disclose such information, Hydra, but I'm curious: are these G1 GoBots getting a re-release like Sunstorm did? Are there OTHER G1 GoBots coming our way from e-hobby?

Yup!

Not just because it opened the door to the Gobot invasion. It was because it combined the Gobot invasion with the miscolored toys in the old catalogs. So they ended up in a double dip of goodness rather than just being Hasbro toys repainted as Bandai toys.

Something which I think a lot of fan-suggestions for Gobot repaints overlook.

I agree and some of the most expensive. Pathfinder was the only one I ever thought to be a bit on the boring side due to being similar to Cosmos.

I would like these color schemes applied to more modern figures as well (we do have Bugbite afterall).

So these guys are retroactively the first group "on Cybertron" to use the name Gobots, but they led to the Spychangers rather than... the Gobots. Of course, it's possible (likely) that the G2 Gobots bridge the gap, but there's only so many permutations of a thing you can squeeze into one paragraph.

I wonder what the story is for the guy actually named Gobots now...

Their colorings were based on unreleased recolors featured in an American catalog, but it seems that their names and characters originate elsewhere?


Didn't they originate in a Japanese catalog?

Hmm, pretty sure some of the planning documents said an American catalog,
but that does seem to be the catalog in question, and darned if it's not Japanese. That can
be changed in the article.

Keep in mind, these were the same planning documents that originally had the chars.
labeled as Bath Finder and Bat Boy. ^^

Good eyes, Monzo. Thanks for your suggestions, BTW.
As for the GoBots, I'm not aware there are any plans to resissue them.

Maybe the G2 Gobots have been retroactively renamed Spy Changers? Or did these guys lead to the invention of the G1 Spy CHangers that had Optimus, Prowl, Jazz, Wheeljack, Hoist, etc?

I would presume that the Spychangers were the eventual result of their technology?
However, keep in mind that in the unified Japanese animated continuity, the events of Car Robots precede G2 by decades,
so the Spy Changers would have apparently come first.

And it was BAT Boy. You know, like in baseball, I guess? I know Japanese people loves baths and all, but...

Ah, good observation. I keep forgetting that the fiction isn't linear with toy release.

Makes a lot of sense then that after the success of the Spychangers, a bunch of guys would be created (and/or RE-created) in that vein. Somewhere along the line then, "Gobots" was reattached to the group or maybe a sub-group of the Spychangers.

He also has... package art of the jets in those colors? Sadly, Wayback Machine doesn't have the images, only the text.
