Is that the Gobots base shuttle walky thinger?

Awesome.

I remember nearly making my dad buy me one from Menzies in Bath in about 1988. I made him buy me something else instead, though, but I can't remember what...

I've always kinda regretted not getting it.

I have no idea really what I'm going to do with the thing... probably just set up a display for the bestest Guardians or something. I've just always liked the idea of dedicated playsets (like Countdown), and especially when they won't sacrifice stuff so they can turn into a big, boxy robot. Plus it has a bloody Cafeteria. Holy socks!

I'm just kinda regretting leaving a Thruster (Renegade shuttle playset) go on ebay last month now

The Command Centre's actually a bit disappointing, TBH. If it wasn't for the packaging, I'd think it's a knock-off... Plastic's very weak, the scale's a bit poor (only small small Gobots can fit in most rooms), the lift can't support the weight of most figures... It's kinda fun - I mean, it has a cafeteria:


But it's just a bit cheap and tacky compared to the quality of the Gobot figures themselves...

Oh well

I mean, they could have done figures for the two dinner ladies or something. I'd have been all over that. They could have been called Dinar and Cook Hook or something.

Think I will pass on the "GASBERRY PIE". Lest I offend people later.

Shame it was a disppointment for you. But didn't you buy it mostly for display reasons -> plastic quality wouldn't be that big thing?

That Cafeteria made me smile widely.

Bit more of a problem when it lacks the rigidity/dimensions to support a lot of the figures, sadly.

Well, if the Go-Bots didn't spend all day in the canteen they wouldn't be such fat bastards and the thing would take their weight.
