CHALLENGE OF THE MACHINE MEN - INTRODUCING THE ROCK LORDS
an Australian promotion comic
This little comic strip is an australian exclusive item. It is a feature designed to introduce the Rock Lords into the Gobots/Machine Men world. At the beginning, the good and evil machine men are involved in a fight, which climaxes in the drop of a nuclear bomb. This move, supposed to exterminate the evil machine men, turns out to have waked the evil Rock Lords, beneath the surface of the planet. They now start to battle the machine men, but the good Rock Lords come to their rescue. Finally the evil machine men come also back to fight, and everybody stares at a new creature emerging : a Narlie !!
From a toy perspective, the most interesting thing in this item is the centerpage which has a picture of all Rock Lords supposed to come out. The toys pictured are all pre-production items, prototypes that strongly differ from the final versions that were sold in toy stores. A lot of the names are also different or assigned to different figures than in the final release. This photograph was later reused in the Tonka wishbook by crest toothpaste.
