A new Gobots: The Movie and/or TV series might happen?!

January 27th, 2015 by Marc Comments


I‘m pretty sure I watched this as a kid. I know I still have a few of the toys in my collection, but I’ll be damned if I can recall the series. 

Anyway, enough of that…

Hasbro has filed documents to the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a new GoBots trademark under “distribution of motion pictures, ongoing television programs” and “Toys, games and playthings, namely, toy vehicles and accessories for use therewith.”

SO, theoretically we could be on the verge of another movie franchise about massive battling robots who turn into vehicles and suchlike. How cool is that that?!


Ok, for those who don’t remember, here’s what the story of the show was and for those who do remember, is this something you want to see returning?

Leader-1 and his closest allies pursue Cy-Kill to earth, where they are forced to befriend certain humans. Among them is astronaut Matt Hunter, whose team has been implicated falsely in the destruction of the space shuttle they piloted in part because of the collusion of NASA consultant Dr. Zebediah Braxis with the renegades. With the help of their troubled newfound human friends, the Guardians must defend both Earth and Gobotron from Renegade tyranny! The Challenge of the Gobots series features an impressive cast that includes a number of voiceover contemporaries like Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime from Transformers) as Tank, B. J. Ward (Scarlett from G. I. Joe) as Smallfoot, Arthur Burghardt (Destro from G. I. Joe) as Turbo, Phil Hartman (Saturday Night Live), and Frank Welker (who has done voiceovers on what seems like half the animation made over the last 30 years) as Scooter and Zeemon. It also stars SAG Lifetime Achievement Award winner Brock Peters (Joseph Sisko from Star Trek:Deep Space Nine, Admiral Cartwright from Star Trek IV and VI) as General Newcastle, and Grammy and Prism Award winner Rene Auberjonois (Odo from Star Trek:Deep Space Nine, Clayton Endicott III from Benson) as Dr. Zebediah Braxis, both of whom would become semi-regulars throughout the series.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
