Doesn't Hasbro own the rights? The series wasn't really worse than the Universe Trilogy.
It is listed on TVShowsOnDVD at Challenge of the GoBots on DVD at TVShowsOnDVD.com
if people vote maybe we can a better time slot than never.
Also, armada was so much better than gobots.
Go-Bots will be released AFTER the BW anime please...
Shouldn't this be in Non-TF General Discussion? Go-Bots isn't Transformers, y'know.
Originally, yes they were competition but Go-Bot's names have made it into the Transformers universe. Thus, I thought it was loosely connected to Transformers.
Proof you've never watched them both. Why am I never surprised to see that?
Anyway, I put that listing up on tvshowsondvd a few years back and honestly the only way you'll ever see the show on DVD is if I can get the money together to have all of my film reels converted. And when that day does eventually come, you'd better jump quickly because the anti-competition stormtroopers will be paying me a visit in short order.
never ever never
Go-Bots were soooooooooo lame. But why not a DVD? I wouldn't buy it but I wouldn't be against it either.
I've seen much worse TV shows on DVD... I don't see why they won't release it.
Nah, I watched armada since I was a little kid, and watched the whole thing.
I had trouble sitting through an episode of gobots.
So you obviously didnt watch the whole series of gobots and therefore prove the above mentioned point!
While I would love to have it.. as its actually a pretty good show with a startling amount of internal continuity.. I doubt it will ever be released on dvd.. I think the fact alone that Go-bots was able to have female characters who weren't pastel or pink and still be feminine says a lot..
While Hasbro owns some of the Names, and the brand Go-bots... They don't own the character likenesses.. And the people who own the character likenesses (bandai) produce Power Rangers.. one of the main competitors for Transformers and I don't see them sharing... So I think the most we can hope for is a few more sporadic Go-bots homages in print and toy form.. Or, barring that.. a Set being produced in a foreign market where Hasbro/AOL Time Warner (Who I would assume owns the cartoon itself since it owns Hanna Barbara's back catalog now)/Bandai wouldn't be able to stop it..
If you don't like the Go-bots cartoon that's fine, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with the Toys.. And to say that Armada is better than Challenge of the Go-bots? I'm having a really hard time believing that..

If all 10 or 11 seasons of Full House can be put on DVD, why not GoBots?
ewwww really? man im gana go throwup.
I wouldn't mind seeing a DVD release. I loved that show as a kid.
Though to be fair, back then my only standards were "robots" and "transforming."
I'd imagine the biggest stumbling block(s) to a release of the Gobots cartoon would be getting all the rights and permissions in order, between Hanna-Barbera(Time-Warner?), Hasbro (trademarks and such from Tonka), and Bandai (Machine Robo designs).
