The Triggerbots

Do you feel lucky?  Well, do ya, PUNK?

If you were a Decepticon in the late 80's, you do not want to mess with the itchy trigger finger of the Triggerbots!  Check out three, count'm, THREE! all new character pages now available in the 1988 Transformers Section: BACKSTREET, DOGFIGHT and OVERRIDE.  While they lacked the pose-ability and transformation complexity of modern Transformers figures, we can look on the bright side point out that their flip out weapons did not require a Mini-con or Cyber Planet Key to activate!

Hmm, these guys are okay, I guess.

In 1988 they were "Totally radical!"
In 2009 they're pretty ho-hum. But a classic oldie, none-the-less.

And that's why, to me, they're not all that exciting. I'm only 18 (19 in a few months).

That, and the fact that they didn't appear in any cartoon, which is the main fiction medium that I follow (unless a comic/manga is set in the continuity of that cartoon).

JOY! Does this mean that pages for the TriggerCONs are soon to follow? Including my all-time favorite Transformer character; the wheezing, whining ingrate CRANKCASE?

Now these I would like to see get the Universe treatment. Maybe as Scouts or deluxes. (With new molds)

Now these guys bring back memories. I'm staring down the barrell of 30 and I know these guys like old friends. Unfortunetly they never saw action in the cartoon (not the US one anyway, I can't speak for Japan), but it would be great if they got updated bodies using today's toy tech.

Why don't you follow the Marvel comics Sabrblade? These guys were made years after the cartoon had stopped being produced so obviously they wouldn't appear in the cartoon - just because the cartoon ended didn't mean Transformers did. There are plenty of good characters that were created after the cartoon had finished and only appeared in the Marvel comics.

And okay, these may be basic toys with no articulation other than their arms but they're still pretty fun for G1 toys from that era.

Because I've never read them. Like I said, I'm only 18. They were before my time and, unlike cartoons (which can be put on DVDs or videos), I have no way of obtaining them to read them.

Sidewinder, they did not appear in any TF cartoon, regardless of origin.

You can get some of them pretty cheap.
Sabrblade said,  - 2009-01-30 14:18:57
I meant aside from ordering them online.

Well yeah. Buying things from online is usually the only way to purchase many Transformers items - comics and toys alike. Choosing not to purchase Transformers online despite its ease would just result in having a collection that is far, far less than what it is now.

Basically, I rely on online purchases and so do many other fans so we do have ways of obtaining what we want.
