Hey, what's better than Transformers, you ask? Transformers ripoffs that look like rocks, of course!
Ladies and gentlemen, Rock Lords!!!
I recently stumbled across a Web site, Toy Archive, that has pictures of all of them. This makes me so happy: Along with Food Fighters (which I will next dig up information on), Rock Lords are my favorite nearly-forgotten-about gems from my childhood.
At right is Stoneheart, always one of my favorite characters....
While I was at the site, I also ran into the Go Bots Command Center. This awesome Star Wars-looking beast, made by Tonka, was also one of my favorite pre-T.M.N.T. favorites.
