Not so much, I remember they had a GoBots movie tied in with another cartoon, but I never saw it.

That Gobots movie you’re thinking of Silverbolt is Battle of the Rocklords which was meant to launch a new line of toys based around robots that transformed into… rocks.

Roboforce on the other hand doesn’t really have much of any direct connection to Gobots what so ever. Back in the 80s they were a line of robot toys trying to capitalize on the transformers/gobots with a suction cup gimick instead of feet that let you stick them to the walls and stuff. To promote the toy line a single pilot episode special was made by Ruby-Spears(the guys that made the Chipmunks cartoon). The cartoon never got produced into a series and the toy line just kinda died off and faded into obscurity.

The reason the special is even on the Gobots dvd is because Hanna Barberra acquired Ruby Spears after they shut down in the mid 90s and they were then in turn acquired by Warner Bros who now owns both HB and RS collective works in addition to their own looney toons. They also own Filmations catalog too, so yeah 2/3rds of all the Saturday morning cartoons we watched as kids are now owned by one single company.

There was a live action sci-fi film from Hong Kong called Roboforce(I love Maria) or it’s original title: Tie Jia Wu Di Ma Li A.

Check it out here:

This was a Hong Kong variant of RoboCop.
