I remember the Mighty Orbots cartoon and that video bears no resemblance to it.

As for the toys, they existed and they combined...badly.

Never seen those individual pics before. They never got past the advertisement stage as far as I know. which is a shame because as a kid i'd have loved them crummy looking or not...

"We need more Bort licence plates in the Gift Shop. Repeat, we are sold out of Bort licence plates."


As most of us know, the character of Bulkhead was based on Crunch from Orbots (the way that Bulkhead is sitting down crunching something is also a homage to Crunch), and of course, now Bulkhound has made his cinematic debut in Age of Extinction!
