Non-Transformers, but this will excite all of you who have been fans of transforming robots in the 1980s. Via Taghobby / Cybergundam on Facebook, we have a look at a whole line of Gokin (high-end release) versions of several Machine Robos, who many of you may remember from the 1980s as the GoBots! The selection of characters in the line definitely seems to have been inspired by GoBots as well as Machine Robo, the original Japanese version of the series. The lineup shown thus far includes:
- Jet Robo / Fitor
- Drill Robo / Screwhead
- Tank Robo / Tank
- Shuttle Robo / Spay-C
Plus there are one or two others.
It looks like Bandai & Action Toys is serious about bringing back the Gobots / Machine Robos as a whole line of high-end collector releases, to compete with the Masterpiece Transformers.
