Knight Rider Becames Robert

  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST

No I haven’t lost my mind or suffered a blow to the head. I was just looking over Something Awful’s Holiday Shopping Guide when I found this:

You see, old Go-Bots don’t die, they just get sent to China to be given a paint job based on every pair of Umbros shorts I ever had.

At least I think this is a Go-Bot. He looks really familiar. Can anyone put a name on him for me?

  3. Kind of looks like Zemon or one of the GoBots that resembled him.

    Looks nothing like Knight Rider/KITT, though. :)

    If you want to get technical, it’s not a gobots ripoff/bootleg, it’s a machine robo one.

    Aside from lacking actual heads, and having limbs that were uber-scrawny compared to their bulky bodies, thesuper gobots were pretty decent. (Although not the ones which were just overgrown versions of normal gobots, like the cy-kill and leader-1 ones, they were nothing more than duplo-esque versions of normal gobots. They didn’t even bother to give them enhanced details or anything.)

  6. There’s a typo! The package should read: Knight Rider becomes R.O.B.E.R.T. (Robot Operative Based Entirely on Reused Toys).

    Maybe it’s the secret Robert the Bruce GoBots toy?

  8. Dammit…I want one…and the “KARR BECAMES KEVIN”.

    I wonder if he’s friends with Robert Cop 2?
