Robo Force is a reimagining of the Ideal Toys brand that was released in the ‘80s and failed when it was released at the same time as Hasbro’s Transformers. The brand assets were acquired by The Nacelle Co. in 2021 and a new line of toys began hitting specialty retailers last December.
“We’re excited to have such a fantastic partner with Cartoon Conrad, who’s helping bring this big idea into reality,” says Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Co.
Cartoon Conrad has also produced DC Superhero Girls, Teen Titans Go, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs on Cartoon Network, Green Eggs and Ham on Netflix, and more.
“Not every day you get a call from Brian Volk-Weiss,” says Luke Conrad, Cartoon Conrad CEO. “I have been following his work for years now and needless to say, we jumped at the chance to work with him and his talented team at the Nacelle Company.”
The first season of Robo Force will feature six episodes. The story takes place in 2089, just after the Robo Force launches into action. However, Utopia 101 is launched two days later, turning the Robo Force into a group of menial laborers for more than 20 years. That is until Utopia 101 turns on humanity and Robo Force needs to save them.
