I'm pretty sure the show was out in the 80's or maybe even very early 90's but it could also of been an animated movie (If so would most likely of been a straight to VHS effort)...

Now all I have is a very vague/blurred memory of it so I will try and describe what I recall as best I can...

I remember there was multiple different coloured robots, one was orange, one was green, pink, blue etc...

Each robot was unique with its own appearance and abilities...

I'm pretty sure one moved around on one wheel while it could shoot out its hands/claws to reach further...

I think one had wheels on the end of its arms which it could fold down and form into a sort of vehicle and go really fast...

Now I have been searching through the internet with no results at all... It's definitely not Transformers, Gobots, Gundam, Mask, Voltron, Mighty Orbots...

Again this could of been a short animated film but I am leaning more towards a series...

I specifically remember a scene where they were trapped in a brown cave looking for a way out but again this is a very old vague memory...

(UPDATE) After doing some further research, the character "Grounder" from an old Sonic the Hedgehog series bares a resemblance of what the style of robots looked like but all unique in their own way - Different colours and builds...

Also another show "Super robot monkey team hyperforce go" (SRMTHG) shows the "Monkey/robots" with different accessories for hands - One has drills, another magnets and another has spinning blades... These really triggered the memory for me...

Again the show is a lot older than both of these if my memory serves me correctly...

  • Do people drive the robots? How big are they compared to people? Are there people in this show? – Gorchestopher H Dec 5 '18 at 13:35

    No the robots were their own entities, I am pretty sure there was humans in the show and the robots helped them but again I'm not 100%... From memory they were of a similar size to a human if there was indeed humans in the show, I don't remember them being the size of transformers for instance... Thanks! – ScottishGuy90 Dec 5 '18 at 13:37

    Again I'm not 100% but if I were to guess I think adolescents/adults... I think it was more of a fun adventure series but kind of serious, on the same level as Transformers or He-Man or the likes... – ScottishGuy90 Dec 5 '18 at 14:12

    “I'm pretty sure one moved around on one wheel while it could shoot out its hands/claws to reach further...” — that reminded me of T-Bob from M.A.S.K., although I guess you’ve ruled that out. – Paul D. Waite Dec 5 '18 at 20:12

    I thought T-Bob as well. Guess not. – Kai Qing Dec 5 '18 at 20:18

This seems like a long shot, but any chance you could be thinking of Robotix? It was a movie (split up into several episodes) based on a toy line.

Things that fit the description:

  • The robots are autonomous; they don't have to be piloted by humans
  • The robots all have distinct abilities
  • The robots can transform/reconfigure
  • One of the robots, Jerrok, is basically a torso on a giant wheel who has claws
  • Several scenes toward the end of the movie take place in a cave
  • There are humans in the show

Things that don't quite fit:

  • The robots don't have as varied a color scheme as you remember
  • While the robots don't have to have a human pilot, they can and do in some scenes
  • The robots are significantly larger than the humans
  • Thanks for taking the time with your suggestions but unfortunately it's not the right show... Guess I may never know - Or there's a good chance it could of been a figment of my imagination haha – ScottishGuy90 Dec 12 '18 at 11:12

My best guess would be Robo Force - the toys where all the robots had suction cups instead of lower bodies. Another wild guess would be Starriors. The drill on Grounder's face reminds me of a character from each of those series'. Also, neither of them had actual robots but could you be thinking of maybe Centurions or Inhumanoids? The wheels on the arms makes me think of one of Jake Rockwell's suits.

  • Ahh really good suggestions - Unfortunately I've already come across all of these and still nothing... Some do have similarities though... Thanks for your input anyway man! – ScottishGuy90 Dec 12 '18 at 15:57
