  1. Dude, Go-Bots are the Transformers retarded cousins who’s mom had to beg Optimus to “let their cousins play too”, that’s the only reason they even HAD a show.

    Wow, really? My vote it Transformers 100%.

    Not only were the toys better. They had a movie in the 80’s, the theme song was better (They gave it the 80’s rock treatment for the movie), better stories, cooler transforming noise. And I always hated the loud noises the GO-BOTS make when they walked, not sure how they could sneak up on anyone. They also talked louder when they whispered too.

    GO-BOTS just GO Home.

    Transformers – “You got the touch, you got the Power!”

  3. Right now, I’m actually shocked that the Transformers don’t have a total sweep. Even I didn’t like the Gobots, and I just used Transformers as my Barbies’ pets (cuz they were smaller).

  4. Is this a joke?

    Transformers changed from awesome vehicles to awesome robots.
    Go-Bots went from a pile of poop to a pile of different shaped poop.

    Although, Cy-Kill *is* an awesome name.

  5. The Gobots and Transformers were toys that decided who were the haves and the have nots. If your daddy was on welfare you got hotwheels. If your dad had a job and barely made enough to get by you had gobots. If your daddy had a good paying job you had transformers.

  6. I remember my first Transformers toy: The always-amusing Starscream.
    I remember owning a Go-Bot, but couldn’t remember its name for the life of me.
    That’s all I need to know to make this decision.

  7. Who are the 6.18% knuckleheads that voted for Go-Bots? Lol. They’re voting privileges should be revoked!!!! SMH!!!!

  8. One of the things I really like about Transformers is the way they thought about the different teams and groupings. Especially in the early G1 days the toys almost tell you who they are. If it’s a car, it’s an Autobot. Those Dinobots don’t look like anyone else, I bet they don’t get along with anybody. Jetfire’s a fighter plane even though he’s an Autobot? I bet he used to be a Decepticon!

    I didn’t ever get a sense of that from watching Go-Bots, it just seemed like one arbitrary bunch of robots against another. And Scooter. Maybe the cartoon didn’t do the franchise justice, the Transformers cartoon was awful relative to the comics too. Give me complex plotting, pyrrhic victories, the Decepticons sometimes winning, politicking on both sides, Grimlock with a brain in his head and TARGET: 2006 any day. Wreck and rule!

  9. Transformers, because even my parents knew Transformers > Go-Bots. Besides, Hasbro ended up buying the Go-Bots to shut them down.

  10. Transformers, was the one I voted on, I remember both series watchin GOBOTS at my aunt’s house, watching Transformers at my grandparents and at home. The Transformers for me was the Dinobots, Hound, Trailbreaker, Ironhide, Optimus Prime, and Jazz. Back in the day as a kid I thought Optimus Prime was the better leader of the Autobots than Leader-One and the Guardians. With Transformers you have better storyline even with the villains with Starscream trying to pull a Cesar on Megatron. Cy-Kill and his Renegades going against the Decepticons would be like a cover from Transformers comic with Megatron standing victorious on the carcass of Cy-Kill. The comic was Megatron’s Origins.

  11. I owned a few Go-Bot toys before I ever owned a Transformers toy (possibly before I knew that Transformers existed). Then, I got Optimus Prime and Starscream for my birthday and my Go-Bots got shipped to the bottom of the toy box. Then, I got my first Godaikin robot and my Transformers started to look a little more Go-Bot-Y.

    Transformers all the way. Unless it’s Michael Bay Transformers. If it’s THOSE Transformers, I’ll opt for the bullet in my scrotum, thanks.

  13. A lot of the Go-Bots toys were actually pretty nice. The show was total crap, and Transformers were clearly superior, but I voted for Go-Bots anyway out of pity and nostalgia for the toys. :)

  14. Let’s see – we have a choice between a cheaply made, poorly animated cartoon show with stupid plots whose only reason to exist was to sell crummy toys to brainwashed children… and another heaply made, poorly animated cartoon show with stupid plots whose only reason to exist was to sell crummy toys to brainwashed children. Gosh. Why does this remind me of Congress and the upcoming elections?
