The Gobots hatered?!

I can't understand the hatred toward the Gobots. Especially from the self-proclaimed "hardcore" Transformers fans. Would someone come up and explain why are they lame compared to the Transformers?

As a side note, the Gobots cartoon was the popular transforming robots cartoon here in the Middle East back in the nineties. The Transformers were barely known back then. I was aware of it when I was a kid, when my parents taped the Omega Supreme episode since it aired before Dino Riders, the show I was watching before going to school. But the live action movies are the reason of me becoming a Transformers fan nowadays. But I still like the Gobots and wish to it being re-released again.

I liked GoBots more than TFs

I liked GoBots more than TFs as a kid,allthough later I did grow to like TFs. Noone at my elementary school had a bias against GoBots that I recall,allthough it was a inner city area so it wasn't like most kids could sneer at inexpensive toys. I even liked the Rock Lords and the Rock Gnarlies.

Josh's tale about finding out about Machine Robo as an adult reminds me of growing upand finding out MUSCLE was one of the coolest manga/anime ever,when I thought they were just generic little dudes we collected!

My parents were to poor to

My parents were to poor to buy me transformers and too poor to buy gobots (or they just didn't wanna buy em) so I had a healthy dose of bootleg Gobots. Identical but cheaper and made in taiwan. But if gobots were uncool at the time imagine me showing up to the playground with a figure called plane -bot to play with Optimus Prime.
Tank is actually one of my favorites

I was poor...

I had this and some Transformers minibots.
There are some small differences between yours and what I had, in Brazil: He didn't have the golden canopy, it was just a red stick. And he also had a sword and a shield. It comes in a box, and it's called Robo-Tank. No one knows he was a Gobot until he appears on the series.
