Gobots Philippines alarms people and the media and Inquirer.net Hackenslash feature

Views



Hi everyone,

Did you enjoy our latest April Fools day prank?
Well I like to explain that every year Transformers Philippines is in the tradition of having an April Fools day theme every year April 1. And last year we did a one month prank of transforming the fan group name into Destron Philippines.

For this year we did Gobots Philippines and since that there are no Gobots fan group, we decided to have one for a month and give a short tribute to the classic Gobots series and toys.

Below is an article interview by Inquirer.net, can't believe that many people are being victimized by our Gobots Philippines April fools day. Even members of our forum were alarmed and began to ask if they bookmarked the wrong forum website hahahahaa.

hope you enjoy our prank! and yes, we will be having a Gobots day soon in this month of April.
Our logo will come back here after next week.

TransFormers Philippines becomes GoBots Philippines

THEY’VE been fans of Hasbro’s Transformers toys and cartoons, but now they’ve had a change of heart and embraced the GoBots. TransFormers Philippines is now GoBots Philippines, complete with a logo and slogan change: “We changed our name, we changed our fandom, we are no longer Transformers Philippines…” and a link to http://transformersph.blogspot.com

Of course, there’s more to this than meets the eye.

TransFormers Philippines is playing a week-long prank starting today, April Fool’s Day. In an interview with hackenslash.net, TransFormers Philippines moderator Azrael Coladilla said the prank is targeted at the more specialized fans of the GoBots, a short-lived cartoon and toy series that was itself a minor success.

He said they also did an anti-Transformers prank last year when the site “shifted allegiance” to the Decepticons, led by the evil Megatron.
