The images contained in this gallery are of an unreleased Generation Two Go-Bot base, designed to be used with the Generation Two Go-Bots. The base, shown driven by the Go-Bot Firecracker, is used as a ramp for Hot Wheel style cars - in the shape of the Generation Two Go-Bots. The stickers on the base, 95, may well indicating the year in which the toy was planned for release.

This item would have fitted quiet nicely with the Micromaster bases released under the Generation One line. According to folks at The Allspark, an early sample of the toy had been shown at the first BotCon in 1994.

Many thanks go to Chris Reed (aka Fort Max) for sending us the following information on this item:-
The figure actually had some unpackaged sampels made, and also had one of those 3-D display stands some of the '95 G2 figures had.
Anyway, the figure was named "Greasepit with Racing Rig", with Greasepit being a redeco of Gearhead. The figure and base was on display at BorCon '96, and you can find some pictures at Toy Archive.

Many thanks once again to the guys at The Allspark, mainly Ras for pointing us to this gallery of some of his prototypes as well as this gallery as pointed out by Engledogd and Thunderous Iron.

The following information comes from Ras:-

This is the G2 Gobot playset known as Road Rig. The GoBot is called Greasepit. It was scheduled for release during the last stages of the Generation two line and was prototyped in Early 1994 and scheduled for release in 1995 but was cancelled to make-way for the Beast Wars line.

Whilst the following comes from Engledogg

Positioning at the bottom of the price range, but not the quality range, man. $2-3 each, these are the size and look of Hot Wheels cars, with through-axles so they run well. The transformations were shown, and are significanly more complicated than minibots were. I'd put them about at the level of the most subtle Micromasters or maybe a Dinobot. There will be six individually sold Superspeedbots, one of which is named Pothole (at least for now).
In addition, there's the Superspeedbot Racing Rig (no individual name yet). It's a tractor-trailer rig which I suppose can hold all 6 SSBots plus the one which comes with it (a clear plastic one where you can see the guts... this design *is* final). In addition, the trailer folds down into a ramp. And the really cool bit is that as soon as the ramp is fully down, that triggers the launcher, sending the included car about 10 feet! Kids will LOVE this. Parents will hate it. }-> 1995 is the Year Of Shooting Things Around for Transformers. The rig looks a bit boxy, like some of the largest Micro bases. But the cool features make up for this.
