Predaking was (and still is) one of the best combiners ever. I never had a complete Predaking until I bought the reissue. Definitely worth the money.

Go-bots were cool. They were like introductory Transformers. They were less expensive, smaller, and easier. But not as cool as Transformers.

They were FAR too easy to break.... not to mention the characters were lame.

The Go-Bot show was terrible. It made Transformers look like a friggin masterpiece.

I saw the Go-bots months before Transformers, and always thought that the Transformers were copies of the Go-bots....
