Owning Gobots DVDs

Gobots fans are out there and are excited to share Challenge of the Gobots: The Original Mini-Series with fellow fans. The only problem is that there are not very many Gobot fans because there are not very many Gobots DVD or streaming cartoons. The 1984 animated cartoon has stood the test of time by die-hard fans who appreciate the cartoon-look of talking machines.

Challenge of the Gobots: The Original Mini-Series is truly an original five episode mini-series. The 80s cartoon in the DVD package offers eternal life to the Gobots. Any Gobots fans treasure the opportunity to watch the action cartoons.

The DVDs are few and far between but worth the find because the stories are entertaining when cartoon quality may get you down.

As you watch the Renegades follow Cy-kill when they embark on their mad quest to conquer the galaxy starting with Earth, only Leader-1 and his band of Guardians can stop the Renegades and Cy-Kill.

Leader-1 is the hero and his band of Guardians are all set to the task of saving the universe.

Leader-1 is a Legend?

The question that all the kids asked every Saturday morning, as they played with their Gobots toys and watch Gobots cartoons, was "Can Leader-1 and the Guardians save the true last Engineer?"

You watch the cartoons in these videos and you see low-grade cartoons, but the stories and facial expressions kept the kids glued to the television set.

It reminds me of the good old days when you could watch mediocre cartoons in your pajamas on Saturdays, and it was still a cool thing to do while the parents slept in and the mornings were carefree. Just think, kids, watching the Gobots never thought about how Leader-1 is a legend. But, he is because this mini-series launched him as a legend.

Play with Gobots Toys

For those who are not familiar with Gobots, they are not robots. They are aliens that need your support more than anything right now. Tonka brought them into existence in the 1980s, but now, they are non-existent if you haven't hoarded your set in the garage for another day. I would say they sell for a pretty penny on eBay.

You might catch a Gobot name on a Transformer because Hasbro bought Gobots in the early 1990s. Leader-1 and Bugbite are some of the Gobots names given to Transformers. That means the Gobots came before the Transformers, so the Gobots are superior by far.



"You're bluffing Cy-Kill. You wouldn't dare shoot with the Last Engineer and we won't give him to you."

      Glad to see that I'm not the only ex fan of this series, as it almost seems like you don't hear about the gobots these days. Great hub. Voted up and everything else. :)
