I remember for the longest time folks constantly ripping on Gobots with a select few of us screaming how awesome they were in retaliation. It still happens today, but not as much. Probably since more and more have discovered just how amazing Gobots and Machine Robo actually is. Of course there we are, Gobots hipsters all patting ourselves on the back with a certain sense of smugness.
We were into them before they were cool.
