No- The Gobots is definitely 1980s! Very Happy

It was a competitor to the Transformers- but never matched its popularity, in my opinion. Still, it's not a bad cartoon and there are some fans of it, as these sites should evidence.

(for Gobots toys)

Not that I know of, but there are quite a few VHS releases.
Check out Amazon's list here
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_d/103-5030708-4006205?url=search-alias%3Dvhs&field-keywords=Gobots&Go.x=5&Go.y=6

Of course, eventually The Gobots might make it to DVD! You never know....if The Garbage Pail Kids cartoon and live action movie could get released to DVD Shocked - then most anything can I suppose! Very Happy Cool

When I get a chance, I'll see if I can locate it and then I may see about adding it to my Streamload account.

(go to www.streamload.com and put in "MacGyverfan82" as the user name and "80scartoons" as the password- I've got a few fairly rare 1980s cartoon intro videos and a few out-of-print episodes)

awww...Gobots the poor a man's Transformers. I always asked Transformers for christmas and birthdays, but got Gobots. So I became a fan by default.

Cy-Kill is such a cool name for a bad guy. Smile

Saddly, any interest I would have had in it has been soured by the fact that Tonka (makers of Go-Bots) sued the makers of the Mighty Orbots cartoon.

Tonka Corp. Vs Mighty Orbots: http://www.fortunecity.com/tattooine/pohl/189/orbots2.htm

Go down until you get past the part about the vehicles. There's a picture of Bort's face at that part.

This is the biggest fanpage I've found - and yeah, it took some looking. Hope that helps.

(The owner was certainly helpful to me in my seemingly never-ending quest to track down every series finale, but that's another story altogether...)
