GoBots Battle of the Rock Lords 1986 Blu-ray and DVD Combo
The Guardian Gobots are continuing their work on rebuilding their home planet of Gobotron when a mysterious ship crashes on the planet. Leader-1, Turbo and Scooter investigate, and find it to be occupied by a pair of transforming rocks – Solitaire and her valet Nugget. They have come seeking the Guardians’ help to save their planet from the evil Rock Lord Magmar, who is killing the other Rock Lords in order to take their power sceptres. He places these in a machine designed to channel all their power into his own sceptre.
The Guardians agree to help, but the conversation is spied upon by the Renegade Fitor. Gobotron is soon attacked by the Renegade fleet, and Cy-Kill and a team of Renegades capture Solitaire, Small Foot, Nick and A.J. With Nugget as their guide, Leader-1, Turbo, Scooter and Matt set off on a rescue mission.
Back on Quartex, after relieving a vanquished Rock Lord of his Scepter. Magmar now only requires three more to complete his own. One is held by the Lord of Fossils, the other by Solitaire, and the last by Boulder and his forces; the only opposition left. His troops vote to attack Boulder and be done with him, but Boulder learns of the upcoming attack, and is able to launch an effective counter defence that sees Magma on the verge of defeat.
Meanwhile, Cy-Kill attempts to get information out of Solitaire, and despite her best efforts manages to link up with Magmar and strike an alliance, turning the battle against Boulder. The good Rock Lords flee, and after their defeat at the hands of the Renegades are initially very skeptical about the Guardians’ intentions when they land on Quartex. However, Nugget is able to convince Boulder and the rest of the Guardians true intentions and the two sides form an alliance.
The Renegades and Magmar soon attack in Thruster, and Leader-1 and Turbo engage in arial combat, but receive damage that impairs their ability to fly or convert to vehicle mode. Thruster eventually withdraws on the belief that the Guardians and their allies have been wiped-out, but they survive and proceed towards the kingdom of Fossils before it is attacked. Cy-Kill and Magmar however strike first and seize the Fossil Lord’s scepter. Leaving our heroes at a loss on what to do next.
Meanwhile on Rogue Star, after Nick and A.J. escape from their cell, they free Small Foot, and the three carry out various acts of sabotage before escaping in a Renegade Spacehawk fighter. They land on Quartex and hook up with Leader-1 and the rest. Cannibalising the fighter for all its parts; Scooter is able to construct energy projectile weapons for Boulder and his troops, and fully repairs Leader-1 and Turbo. Now ready and with the element of surprise, the allies march on Stonehead; Magma’s fort. Meanwhile, Cy-Kill finally hands Solitaire’s Sceptre to Magma to fully power his own (Boulder’s though that they believed lost and was necessary to accomplish this is all but forgotten). Once the sceptre is powered, Cy-Kill and his Renegades make their move to seize it for themselves.
Solitaire who is present to be executed, escapes in the shoot out, and rejoins Boulder and the rest as they finally crash the party. The Renegades flee with the stolen sceptre, but the Guardians pursue. Discovering that Thruster has been wrecked by the Guardians prior to their attack, Cy-Kill attempts to use Magma’s sceptre against them. But the energy discharges are too much and he is unable to control or even release his hold.
A well placed shot by Leader-1 separates the two, and the Renegades finally retreat while the sceptre’s power disperses. Magma and his minions remain at large but are no longer unopposed. With their mission complete, Guardians bid farewell to the Rock Lords and return to Gobotron.
