See if you've heard this one before: an alien race of shape-changing robots -- the heroic Protectons and evil Terrakors -- locked in a battle for power. Hasbro's at the helm, Sunbow's doing the production, and Peter Cullen and Frank Welker are the voice leads.
If you're thinking Transformers, you should be. The artwork and script are giveaways; heck, half the music and 90% of the voices were lifted straight out of TF/GI Joe universe. Of course, most of this is high-quality stuff (and scores extra points for nostalgia), so Robotix does have quite a bit going for it. What it needed was better characters. The ones here don't seem to have much personality, look too alike, and don't transform into anything interesting. Also, the Robotix movie suffers from having been formed by throwing together a dozen disconnected 15-minute episodes, none of which had much of a plot.
Still, it's perfectly watchable, and totally worth the time if you're an old-time Transformers/GI Joe fan and curious about the more obscure series in the Hasbro-Sunbow canon.
