'G.I. Joe & Transformers' in Permanent Crossover”). The first issue will be in stores in October.
Go-Bots is the first comics story to feature classic toy and cartoon characters such as Leader-1, Scooter, Turbo, and Cy-Kill’s Renegades. In the series, the existence of the transforming robots has changed human existence, from chauffeuring people around to fighting human wars. But as they become more integrated into human lives -- and despite assurance they’re only there to help -- some begin to wonder if the Go-Bots might actually replace humans.
The Go-Bots toy line from Tonka debuted in 1983, a year before Transformers. Hanna-Barbera produced a cartoon series to promote the line, which was immensely popular. Transformers eventually overtook the line, and the last new Go-Bots were released in 1987. Hasbro eventually acquired Tonka, and the Go-Bots line along with it. IDW holds a licensing agreement with Hasbro for the publication of comics based on the company’s properties (see "IDW Renews With Hasbro").
