« History

The 1990s were a barren GoBots-less wasteland. Unless you liked Transformers, in which case it wasn't. 1993 also saw the short-lived revival of the Machine Robo franchise as CG Robo and the last (to date) release of classic Machine Robo/GoBots figures in the European-only Robo Machines toyline; neither was a financial success.
