S12:E2 - Mantech Robot Warriors No. 1 (1984)

Less Than Meets the Eye!

Jun 8, 2020

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée man their posts at the All-New Mantech Battle Board Playset for the inaugural issue of 80s action figure tie-in comic Mantech Robot Warriors! Proving that there's no concept too thin for a cheap promotional cash-grab, the Mantechs are three chill dudes whose dying carcasses have been horribly mutilated to fit them into interchangeable robot bodies! And they'll need those new bodies as they battle the evil Terrortechs in an awesome struggle for... who picks the radio station, maybe? It's never made clear. Their entire society seems to consist of only these eight characters fighting one another over no stated goal. Also, the fact that they can all freely swap limbs suggests that maybe they're kinda into this. Get a room already, Techbois!
