                Gobots has always been one of my favorite cartoons and I honestly thought it would never be released. So glad that they decided to release it even though it's just the mini-series. If the Gobot "haters" so to speak watched the show and gave it a chance, they might notice just how good it is. It has always been underrated because of the Transformers comparison and I think that's unfair. It had great characters, storylines, drama, action, humor, etc... just like most other 80s cartoons.
                I actually hope they at least release the Gobotron Saga as well, which was 10x better than the original story and to this day I still enjoy watching it on the old copy I have.

                  Comments about Challenge of The Gobots: The Original Miniseries:

                  I love the G0-Bots. I am an avid transformer fan and I still love the Go-Bots! This is a MUST BUY for two reasons. 1. it how it all started and it brings back memories. 2. I want a complete series release and if the mini series fails that wont happen. WB did a good job of restoring except for episode 4 several times you can tell its a aged cartoon. Its is only in fragments not the whole episode but it was bad quality. I bought 2 copies, its the same on both. am I sorry no, I will give one to my nephu. I am not sure if episode 4 was just impossible to save but its noticeable. thats why 4 starts instead of 5. I still think this cartoon rocks and I hope to see more of the series.

                        Always in the shadow of the hugely popular Transformers, I was surprised when I picked up this DVD at how gorgeous the animation of Gobots was. Of course, as with animation of the period, the action was downgraded, characters simply composed and presented, and plots thin, Gobots could have been a hugely popular product had it not premiered roughly around the same time as Transformers, which had only slightly better animation (likewise with character development and plots).

                              It is truely awesome that the Gobots are finally out on DVD! As a fan of the 80's I have been waiting for this since then. I even run one of the only GOBOT forums on the internet! New Gobotron - http://gobotron.proboards.com/index.cgi The video quality was excellent! I felt like I was watching them on tv again back in 1984! I only hope that all of the other episodes will be released one day! PLEASE RELEASE THEM! Thanks so much for producing these.

                              I love some gobots, so when I saw this set came out I knew I needed to own it.

                              The fact it's remastered looks great and makes me hope that the rest of the series gets the same treatment!
