GoBots made their appearance in
the early to mid eighties. Where I live, they beat transformers to
the market narrowly. That may not be the case to the rest of the
world. They were vehicles that turned into robots, and visa versa.
GoBots had a storyline that had good GoBots verses bad GoBots. The
group picture on the right shows all the earlier models of the GoBot line.
Spay-C is not included in the shot, although this is from Spay-C's box.
I have "Baron Von Joy" somewhere in storage, I hope!
I must add: I believe the
popularity of these types of robots were most likely the nail in the coffin
for the traditional style of battery powered robots that were first popularized
in the fifties and sixties.
