I have already raced Omegatron and Trypticon up the laminate in the hall but it was a bit of a one horse(t-rex) race as Omega seems to have one leg slighly shorter so he walks in big circles and had to have his course corrected a couple of times.

Yeh, I tried racing Throttlebots once, which was how I found out most of mine have ever-so-slightly bent axles... Actually managed to break Searchlight, which pissed me off no end. Well, not that much, or I'd have spent 25p or whatever it costs to get a new one...

Theres a good video of someone racing Tryp,OS and Skylinx with voice clips from the G1 cartoon over it thats quite funny.
Id link to it but Youtube appears to be down again.

And the Throttlebots are pretty cheap arent they I think I paid about 3 inc postage for a lot with all of them except Rollbar and the Searchlight is bone white.
EDIT Youtubes working again so for anyone who hasn't seen this before here it is:

Found it:

Quote:
City Protection Robo GADEP (都市防衛ロボ ガデプ "Toshi Boei Robo Ga-de-pu", short for "Groundling Auto-DEstruct Powerbroker")(2008)

This is a retconned acronym. Originally, it stood for "Guardian/Defender/Protector" (GA-a-di-a-n DE-fe-n-da-a PU-ro-te-ku-ta-a), but this was more implied than explicit, giving the new acronym even more priority.
So the name is "Gadep".

I don't have trypticon, but besides for damage/modding, how can one t rex be faster than another?

Just through how well the motor's been kept over the years. But then I guess what it is is that it's just something a bit fun to have at a convention, rather than an attempt to devise a new worldwide past-time.

I think that this is a pretty cool repaint, actually. I might change a color or two - make the clips on his leg armor gray, maybe - but, for all I know, this might be quite loyal to the TV coloring (been a long time since I've seen that ep). If it were available at an affordable price, I might consider picking one up. Could hang with my old Omega - or, at a pinch, serve as a spare part shop for a piece or two Mr. Supreme is missing.

If nothing else, I'm glad that this thread got revived as it's reminded me of the idea of TF racing Trypticons, Omega tanks, Lynxes - or all three - cool (Heck, even Jumpstarters vs. Battlechargers (if any still work out there) could be good for a lark.) Hmm - I wonder if the "Gadep" has the exact some motor as original OS....
