Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

I have that also however it is not a Transformer, it's a Go Bot, this particular one is called Bugbite, they were kind of a terrible rip of Transformers.

They talked about "Go bots" on Pawn stars last week, apparently they came out first but then "Transformers" bought them out

That's almost there, Gobots were made by Tonka and indeed did come out before Hasbros Transformers however this was only because Tonka got wind of Hasbros Transformers and wanted to beat them to it so literally rushed out 'Gobots' with no thought behind them to get there first, this is why Gobots were just so terrible and as soon as Transformers were released Gobots were pushed to the sideline.

As far as buy out, Hasbro bought out Tonka in '91 but this was 4 years after Gobots had been canned, it's just the rights for Gobots came along with owning Tonka.
