It was absolutely heartbreaking to see my favorite GoBot of all time sell on eBay the other day. Yes, a pristine example of the greatest GoBot and largest toy robot ever sold at retail went up on eBay and only pulled 26 bucks. I was so sorely tempted and yet I had no practical use for it because although my son is two he's more into his electric powered ride on car (that doesn't turn into a robot). Although I've loved this GoBots thing since the day I first found an ad for it, I felt like if I got it for the Prince of Macrocrania I would be forcing the robots on him which I really don't want to do, plus if I were to buy it for me I really have no room for this toy that's larger than Fortress Maximus. What's a 35 year old guy gonna do with a ridey toy for toddlers anyway? But oh well. At least I will still have this great ad I found for the GoBot ride-on from a store called BnB Hardware that ran December 19, 1985. OH WHO AM I KIDDING OF COURSE I WOULD HAVE TRIED TO RIDE IT.
