1988 Submarauder

Posted by:
Perceptor at 2008-12-02 8:59 pm   (site update)

Moving right along with the 1988 section, you will find an all new character page for the final, "first series" Decepticon Pretender: Submarauder, or "Gilmer" as our friends on that big island across the Pacific like to call him!

So lets see a show of hands (through comments).  Do we like that we're spending our Energon on these oldies but goodies, or would you prefer our time be put into the development of character pages for newer toys?

you guys have a great site, do what makes you happy. I have enjoyed reading up on the Pretenders. They came around during full-on puberty I guess for me so I completely missed them.

You guys keep on doing what your doing and i will support you all the way. But seriously I like these oldies. Yes it's nice to have new things but we also need the old stuff to remind us of where the newbies came from.

Dude my favorite part of this site is going through all the G1 toys.

YES! Gilmer! The last one of the trio.

Now, how about the Autobot ones: Waverider (Diver) and Cloudburst (Phoenix)?

(And maybe Metalhawk?)

I like the Pretenders. The chance that they might be in ROTF only enhances the necessity of these pages. now, how about Masterforce screens?

I think this'll be the first Decepticon Pretender I'll get on the secondary market. I always did like spoofs of Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Excellent more 1988! Now you have to start on the Powermasters!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-12-03 19:16:21
Oh yes, the Powermasters (Godmasters) definitely!

Let's see some PM Optimus Prime, Getaway, Joyride, Slapdash, Dreadwind, Darkwing, and Doubledeader.

Otherwise known as (Super) Ginrai/Jinrai, Lightfoot, Ranger, Road King, Buster, Hydra, and (Double)clouder.

i beleave it would be absolutely
awsome if hasbro made some pretenders
for the animated toy line and unicron for the animated toy line would be a great idea.

Personally, I'm thrilled to see you guys making character pages for the older toys, as I've been looking forward to learning more about these out-of-print toys and their character counterparts from cartoon and comic, particularly those from (ta-daa!) 1988.

I think Sabrblade is right. There needs to a page on the powermasters and metalhawk

cool! i didnt really know the pretenders before but now i can really see how close those animated characters are.

Love the page. The only thing that would make it better are some Gilmer screen shots from masterforce :D. (+ you put that he never had a cartoon appearance till animated)
And yay! I was right on that beast thing in animated being Gilmer!
