A quick comment:    Back to Reneades Review Page      Gobots Homepage

This is my first Fitor action figure.  As a kid I had always wanted to own him but just didn't have the finance to purchase it.  Now I'm glad to have him as part of my collection.  I got him on July Ix, Mmiv for $XXVI.LXXX from Ebay

 

R-0 Fitor's motto and tech specifications:

| STR -- | INTL -- | SPD -- | ENDN -- | RNK -- | CRG -- | FRPW -- | SKL -- |

Fitor's Motto:

Unfortunately the Gobots action figure doesn't come with any motto or tech & spec like the Transformers action figure.

R-1 Fitor in its Original condition:

2 - This is the back of the card. 

3 - These are all the contents that were included in the box/ package/ card:  "1" jet.

 

R-2 Pre-Applied Decals/ Stickers: 

Fitor came with 2 pre-applied sticker which located on either side of his knee.

Sticker Sheet:

Unlike the Transformers, none of the Gobots action figures come with sticker sheet.

 

R-3 Fitor in Vehicle Mode:

fitorveh.jpg (45364 bytes)Fitor in vehicle mode is a futuristic jet whose measurement is approximately 2 15/16 x 2 5/16 x 1 1/4 (LxWxH in inch).  I thought he looks okay in this mode.  Fitor has 4 metal wheels underneath his arm so you can roll him on the ground.  Other than his simplicity design, Fitor doesn't really have any negative drawback in this mode.  On the positive note, the clear tinted blue cockpit does add some aesthetics compared to the all solid Coptor cockpit.

 

R-4 Fitor in Robot Mode:

fitorrob.jpg (53727 bytes)In robot mode, Fitor is very impressive compared to his vehicle mode.  Moreover, he looks very much like his cartoon counterpart.  Fitor has one major weakness and that's his fist.  For some reason, his fist or the hole part is actually position sideway which make it looks awkward because it's not upfront.  My other minor complaint about Fitor and all other Gobots who fall into this category is the un-transformable head.  Sometime it's kind of disturbing to see the head of these robots don't get transform out from its vehicle form  But other than this, Fitor is definitely beautiful.

 

R-5 Fitor's Card Art:

GobotsBAfitor.jpg (45037 bytes)Here's a closed up shot image of Fitor original card art.  I usually don't include box/card art in my review but because the Gobots card arts are so rare and hardly any website has them, I decided to put into this review.  Unfortunately, almost all the Gobots' card art are cut off due to the bad presentation or arrangement on the card.  It is nearly impossible to find these Gobots Card Arts in any other medium or merchandize as way to get complete drawing since these Gobots arts hardly get produced into other format.  So the only thing we can do as Gobotron fans, is tried to fix these card arts by ourselves.

Fun Figure: [B] - Could be a little bit more fun if this toy come with weapon.  But then again, Gobots action figure hardly come with any weapon.

Robot's Cartoon looks alike: [A] - Definitely looks like the cartoon

Vehicle's Cartoon looks alike: [+B] - Very much like the cartoon.

Special Notes: Here's "1" special note which I think you should know:

1 - Due to the upper body weight and the style of transformation, in time, Fitor will suffer the compression leg syndrome.  In other word, Fitor leg will shrink down and bury into his feet which will make him look shorter.  If you want to avoid the problem, then leave him in his vehicle mode.

 Overall Grade: [B] - It's an okay action figure.
