When Max, Berto and Jefferson track a pair of thieves stealing computer components to the annual Del Oro Extreme, Max must go undercover as Josh McGrath. As a competitor in the DOX, Josh teams up with real-life skate-boarding star Tony Hawk to defeat a slick sports agent called Grimsley and his two dirty-fighting stars, Durham and Preston. But it turns out that Durham and Preston are the robbers; and they're using nitro-chips, a high tech kind of steroid, to make themselves as powerful as Max Steel! Will Max be able to stop these supercharged bad guys before their boss Grimsley can put his nitro-chips into mass production? Written by
Foundation Imaging which produced Max Steel, also produced Roughnecks: Starship Trooper Chronicles. Often times, the artists/producers would use characters from the Roughnecks in Max Steel. IE Diz appears as a student in one of Josh's classes. Carmen is on a rope bridge and Josh has to rescue her, etc. See more »
Just as I love Action Man, Max Steel is equally impressive. Both shows have made me fans of the toy lines. The stories are fun, but as is the case with cutting edge technology, kids and adults alike will be attracted to the animation. This is the same computer generated imaging used for movies like Toy Story and Antz, but with human beings and more dramatic adventure. On regular tv, no less!!!! Just like Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, and Superman and Captain Marvel, the similarities between Max Steel and Action Man are so obvious, that I wonder why no lawsuits have been filed. Anyhoo, this show( and Action Man) inspires me to learn more about computers and mathematics; why, I don't know...
