Warner Archives is releasing Challenge Of The Go-Bots soon. Details here (http://www.forcesofgeek.com/2011/04/challenge-of-gobots-gets-re-mastered.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+forcesofgeek%2FrNjo+%28forces +of+geek%29&utm_content=Twitter).

I know they kinda sucked and Transformers were cooler but I always had a soft spot for Go-Bots for some reason. I think it might have been the 'mighty robots mighty vehicles' theme song.

No, for no reason, I'm gonna post some pictures of Go-Bots.

I loved the Go-bots when I was a kid. Mainly cause I had plenty of the toys. I seem to remember the go-bots toys were way cheaper than the Transformer ones.

Ha, they were and for good reason. Have you revisited the show as an adult? Amazingly bad, but completely captivating.

Yeah a few years ago I got about 20 random episodes. The show doesn't hold up that well. But then I don't think the Transformer cartoon holds up that well either.

It doesn't, both are pretty horrible, but man, what a nostalgia rush I got watching Challenge of the Gobots for the first time in I don't know how long. I guess maybe because The Transformers were sort of always around, be it in newer animated series' or comics or big Hollywood movies or whatever they were always sort of in my brain to a certain extent. Go-Bots, not so much. I definitely geeked out when Warner Archive put that out on DVD.
