Spy Changers are a sub-line of toys/characters which first appeared in the 2000-2001 Transformers Robots in Disguise (RiD) toy line. All 6 molds were originally produced as the Transformers: Generation 2 line's Go-Bots in 1995. (The GoBots name had by then been transferred to a pre-school line of Transformers produced by Hasbro subsidiary Playskool.) Despite being retooled versions of the GoBot line, the Japanese (2000) and American (2001) versions proved to be so popular that Hasbro commissioned four unreleased molds from 1995 be added to the Spy Changers line. Later, 4 new molds were based on larger characters from RiD.

Famous quotes containing the words changers and/or spy:
“You know lots of criticism is written by characters who are very academic and think it is a sign you are worthless if you make jokes or kid or even clown. I wouldnt kid Our Lord if he was on the cross. But I would attempt a joke with him if I ran into him chasing the money changers out of the temple.”
—Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
“Living, just by itselfwhat a dirge that is! Life is a classroom and Boredoms the usher, there all the time to spy on you; whatever happens, youve got to look as if you were awfully busy all the time doing something thats terribly excitingor hell come along and nibble your brain.”
—Louis-Ferdinand Céline (18941961)
