Magnetic Energy Net

Magnetic energy nets are an item of equipment used by the Guardians to subdue enemies. Throwing them over a robotic or metallic foe restrains the target, who finds it difficult to fight back because of the magnets, that staple of 1980s cartoon technology.

Fiction[edit | edit source]

Challenge of the GoBots cartoon[edit | edit source]

Faced with the threat of Exor and her Insectoids, Leader-1 requested Blaster Astrobeam to Earth in order to help battle the creatures, which were laying siege to Roguestar after the Renegades' attempted meddling in their plans of conquest. He brought magnetic energy nets with him to help capture the invaders. Leader-1, Turbo, Small Foot and Blaster travelled to the Renegade mothership and were able to trap the Insectoids in the nets - all except Exor herself, who promptly used Doctor Braxis' Dimensional Interfacer to summon up even more troops... Invasion from the 21st Level, Part I

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite their fine performance subduing the Insectoids, which are on a physical par with GoBots, and the Renegades being made out of mainly metal and therefore likely vulnerable to magnets the only time the Guardians deployed the things was against the Insectoids and unsurprisingly they were never seen or mentioned again.
