Be careful what you say, there are spies everywhere. When Hasbro wanted to take on Hot Wheels in the 1990s' they came up with these quick-changing little guys with a confusing but appropriate name Go-Bots, later introduced as Spychangers. The 1/64 scale figures were made to fit the Hot Wheels tracks but it pretty much ends there as the designs were pretty generic, had no die-cast, and were named after G1 Characters that they didn't look much like apart from the colors, on some of them.
Today's Prime shot takes a look at the Optimus Prime Go-Bot / Spychangers toys and the many recolors the mold was used for. Only the two Hasbro and Takara editions were formally Optimus Prime, the rest being recycled for other characters. Being a repaint zealot, I have a lot of fun collecting all the molds over the years and I am a bit sad I am almost done with them. Shown here left to right are the:
• Robots in Disguise REV (2001)
• G2 Firecracker (1995)
• G2 Sideswipe (1995)
• Car Robots Eagle Killer (2000)
