Look at My Horse, My Horse Is Amazing

This is Dropshot:

No toy of Dropshot was ever released, but his prototype was apparently created at around the same time as the other Generation 1 Triple Changers (late 1985-ish), and was somewhat smaller — probably about 10cm tall, as opposed to 15-ish.

The character’s likeness made its way into Transformers Armada and Transformers: Energon comics as a spear-carrier. He dies.

Anyway, why am I talking about this obscure unreleased Transformer? Because he reminds me of this classic piece of internet history:

Dropshot is indeed a horse that turns into a plane.

  1. Can I give him a lick? If so, have you tried this? Does he taste like raisins? NEED CONFIRMATION STROKES OF ITS MANE!!!

    I’ve been a MrWeebl fan since I was just a teen. I watched one of his CatFace videos today in fact. Aah, that man sure knows how to make great videos. Thanks for sharing Dropshot! 😀
