The AM Radio GoBot Firebird


While most people seem to fall on the Transformers side of the Transformer/GoBot debate, I would like to point out a GoBot that had a feature unlike any Transformer. The AM Radio GoBot was not only an awesome Firebird and fighting, but it was also a working AM radio. With him you had a toy that could crush Cy-Kill, but also a friend who could bring you news updates and “traffic on the ones”.

If Soundwave was an actual Walkman, I would say that Transformers still have an advantage, but he did not, and not one of the other Decepticons or Autobots we also a functioning radio. So advantage GoBots…
