Remember we ran a story last week that something was happening on the Gobots front (here)?

Well, now images have popped up online from Bandai and Action Toys of a new line of Gobots and dammit but they look awesome… in fact, it looks like they may be the rival of the Transformers Masterpiece line. Although, TF will always have the bigger audience, but these look well worth a purchase.

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 includes:

– Cy-Kill
– Jet Robo / Fitor
– Drill Robo / Screwhead
– Turbo
– Leader-1
– Tank Robo / Tank
– Shuttle Robo / Spay-C

Plus others who no-one seems to have a name for yet.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
