Pursued by intergalactic warlord Krulos and his Rulons, human Valorians fly through a wormhole and end up on the prehistoric Earth. Krulos follows and becomes stuck in prehistory as well. Both sides build dinosaur armies and engage.
Gobots are loosely based on the Tonka toy line. There are two warring factions: the Gaurdians, lead by the charismatic Leader-1, and the Renegades, lead by Cy-Kill, who is bent on dominating Gobotron and then the Earth and the galaxy.
In this film, Cobra is at it again. This time, they have a device called the Weather Dominator which can control the world's weather and use it as a devastating weapon. Now the Joe team must find a way to fight Cobra when they seem to have the very elements at their command. Written by

Towards the end of the miniseries, Duke pulls a homing beacon out of his pocket and activates it so the Joes can traces its signal. First, why didn't Duke turn it on when he was *first* taken to the Cobra HQ? Secondly, as with Snake-Eyes, is security at Cobra HQ so lax that they don't check to see if prisoners are carrying weapons, or homing beacons, on them? See more »
[after Snake-Eyes has been caught sending a coded message to Joe HQ]
He sent out a message, I'm sure of it; GI Joe will know our target!
So much the better! Their helplessness in the face of my power will surely crush their spirits!

This is the miniseries that, for me, really defined G.I. Joe, with Flint, Lady Jaye, Zartan, the Dreadnoks, Roadblock, Shipwreck, Mutt, and Junkyard appearing for the first time. Excellently animated (as always), this series had all the action and humor of MASS Device, and then some. A great place to begin viewing the saga of G.I. Joe!
