@Steevy It popped up out of nowhere. No one knew it was coming until it was just suddenly there. It was kind of surprising for everyone.

Yeah,Mrs Shrug actually had to return something already. She managed to buy me the thing I bought the day before the embargo went in effect and noticed in on my shelf a week later.

@  MidnightFox : (13 December 2017 - 05:40 PM)

She makes me buy my own present and then wraps it because she doesn't want to attempt to figure out what I own already. :D

@  Paladin : (12 December 2017 - 11:21 AM)

knowing the people behind it, the Obama stuffed animal would probably be a monkey.

@  Pennpenn : (12 December 2017 - 06:43 AM)

The only thing that would make that even dumber would be if there had been some "Obama bear" made at some point and Trump had made a tweet scorning it.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2017 - 12:14 AM)

Just look up the horror of "Trumpy Bear"

Inspired by some person whining about GoBots on TFWiki this morning on Tumblr, I am going to reiterate my standing offer as publicly as possible:

If you are a person who would contribute to a GoBots sister wiki, stand up and be counted. If there's interest, I will create said wiki on ShoutWiki, and set it up with the basic set of templates needed for people to jump in and start making articles for characters, episodes, etc. You'll be able to go about everything exactly as if you were doing it on TFWiki.

Thanks to my having already done the legwork for the IDW Hasbro Wiki, this will be very simple - just starting the wiki and then importing an XML of all the relevant templates and CSS. I have no particular interest in contributing to a GoBots wiki, but I'm 100% ready and willing to get it running for those who would.

I'll be posting this in the TFWiki community portal too.

DISCLAIMER: If you've read this and don't come forward with your interest, you void any right to bring up the topic of GoBots coverage on TFWiki ever again, lest you be hurled into the hugging sun.

EDIT: The GoBots Wiki is born!

Someone's complaining about GoBots being covered on TFWiki? But doesn't Hasbro own the property now? And there's been so much crossing over that separating them would be a nightmare.

I probably would. My brother got me the series on DVD and I could probably use an excuse to push through it.

-ZacWilliam, unfortunately my favorite part of wiki writing has always been the character bios and most Go-Bots aren't nearly as developed personality wise as TFs (thanks Mr Budiansky) which makes that harder and less fun.
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

Complaining about them not getting coverage on the wiki. Some people believe that GoBots being established as part of the Transformers multiverse means that the entire franchise should be covered on TFWiki.

No, someone's complaining about GoBots not being sufficiently covered on TFWiki. Apparently we're petulant children throwing temper tantrums, and it's all because GoBots were cheaper in the eighties and we hate poor people, and also we fail to cover GoBots in some way that we do fully cover other non-Transformers properties such as the Lunchables Brigade, and other such made-up bullshit.

Anyway I have very little to contribute to a GoBots wiki but I guess if I see something I can do I'll do it.

Someone will have to follow behind me to make sure I'm not spelling it Go-Bots.

On that note: Given how much less "diverse" GoBots is than Transformers, I think putting together some form of character infoboxes listing alt mode, first appearance in fiction, toy source, etc might be a good idea. No reason to just blindly ape TFWiki in everything.

Sure thing.

 

I'm assuming that it's going to be like the current setup for the IDW Revolution thing, where we keep crossover adventures (e.g. the Monster GoBots appearing in BWU) on the main TFwiki, while cartoon and comic appearances and... stuff... (did the GoBots even have a comic?) go on the new wiki.

 

I also vote to name the website the God Damn GoBots Wiki.


"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

If you have your heart set on Machine Robo, you could always try to hunt down that one French(?) dub of a Machine Robo anime that tried to make it into a sequel to Challenge of the GoBots.

What I've seen of the MR wikia site is solid. It seems to be the work of a small team, and the malicious Wikia ads keep me from exploring it in depth, but that's not a knock against the work. We might consider asking them to come aboard.
