Mystery Toy from the 90's

Posted by Scopedog 
This has come up on 4chan a couple of times. VZ drew a picture of one of these robot toys that came out in the 90's. I think they were called B.O.T.S. but I don't know who made them. I think there were four. One was a black ninja, one was a green military-style robot, one was a sports-style, and I don't remember what the fourth one was. They were at least a foot tall and had sound chips and a lot of gimmicks and accessories. What were they? Does anybody have any pictures? What was the fourth robot?

Aw CRAP, I know EXACTLY what you're talking about but I don't know what they're called or have any pictures of them or anything.

I don't suppose anyone has Ziv Zulander's e-mail address? These probably aren't his "Bots" anyway.
Yep, there's my drawing based on my vague memory of said toy.

Funny, I ALMOST wanted to get that. That was during the early 90's when I discovered anime and wanted new robot toys BADLY (was still playing with old Transformers at the time) but robots weren't the cool thing anymore. Transformers G2 came and it was cool to get some of the original toys (albeit with different decos than the originals) but I wanted something new. Then Power Rangers and Super Human Samurai came out and that made me satisfied.

I asked if I have "Time For L-Gaim" but I got "No Reply From The Wind".
These mystery toys were a little hokey but I think I had all of them. I remember them being huge and under-detailed with a lot of stickers to apply. I vaguely remember playing more with their accessories than the robots themselves. The military robot had a little pistol with ammo that moved through the gun when you pulled the trigger. One of them had a stealth jet that flew out of its chest.

Yes, it is.
No it's not. These were big, motorized and only four were available.

Vince, I believe you're thinking of Zbots.
We all know what VZ is thinking about [toyboxdx.com] and it isn't Zbots. What's that got to do with this thread?

I remember these at KB Toys. They were fugly, but probably look cool now.
Dear GCrush,
They're not Z-Bots, you supercilious prick! Now kindly shuffle your swollen carapace out of this thread before you drip any more of your filthy ichor on our immaculate quest.
Thank you,
Paul

Paul, have you seen my Zbots?
They're probably wherever you left them! I've told you a thousand times to put your toys away when you're done playing!

Nice, but you still haven't answered the most important question. Who would win in a fight between these guys and God-Jesus Robo?
God-Jesus Robo looks like he has Cross-shaped wings. Win!

Ah yes. See how close my drawing was based on my vague memory to the actual toy is.

Oh wow. The mashup in that toy. Oof! Awesome!
Camo pants and muscle tank top? Check.
Beefy tattooed bicep arm, with swiveling chain gun? Check.
Goooglevision eyegear? Check.
WAY oversized shoulder mount cannon? Check.
Clodhoppery combat boots with huge sand/snow platforms? Oh check it.
Right arm is completely a missle firing rifle? Check.
Spring loaded gimmicks a'plenty? You betcha!
=0)
Good Lord, pert-near Fugly, I'd say! Love it.
The fleshy bicep adds a real touch of horror to the design. Yikes!

Thanks, Ken-A

I want this FOR the fleshy bicep!
Does the rule about posting live auction links apply to eBay Buy It Now with no end date?

Although its not obvious from the pictures, you can take the little handgun out of the left hand and it has a small handle with a functioning trigger and you can also disconnect the bazooka-missile-rifle from the body and it also has a normal handle with a functioning trigger for a small child's hand.
