Transformer of the Day for January 21, 2009


-Faction: Autobot
-Era: Generation 2 (1993-95)
-Function: Tracker
-Motto: “Let’s Get Busy”

-Notable Toy: Go-Bot (Hasbro, 1995)

Notes: In the 1980s, Tonka used a line of Bandai-owned changing cars and trucks to create the Gobots to compete with Transformers. In 1991, Hasbro took over Tonka and, with it, the rights to the Gobot brand. So what do you do if you have a valuable property? How about use it to mount a challenge to another toy company’s 1/64 scale cars. High Beam, repainted first as G2 Bumblebee and later RiD’s Crosswise, is the best of the line.
