Rock Roller

Is Rock Roller a great Rock Lord or the greatest Rock Lord? On first glance he looks like one of the worst, just a big ball with arms and legs sticking out of the sides with barely any effort to give an interesting transformation. But like with all good things there is more than meets the eye!

Stone Hook

Stone Hook is one of the first series of Shock Rocks, larger Rock Lords with gimmicks. Rock Shot throws a rock, Rock Roller rolls along, and Stone Hook has... a stone hook. He's a big imposing figure with a large hooked arm that leaves you in no doubt what he's about!

Slimestone is silver,which isn't slimy and not really a stone, continuing in the proud naming traditions of Rock Lords. Like Nuggit, Slimestone is chromed although he's silver rather than gold. He may not have quite the allure that Nuggit does, but he's highly desired by collectors all the same.

Of all the Rock Lords people want to talk to me about, Nuggit is top of the list. Easily one of (if not the) most popular, he's instantly recognisable both by his unique robotic design and the fact he's entirely chromed. Just looking at him it's easy to see why people get so excited: despite being the smallest Rock Lord, he's got an awful lot going for him.

Bleu, l'Enfant de la Terre (Blue, Child of the Earth)

One of the biggest questions that people ask upon discovering Rock Lords was "did they make any other episodes apart from the movie?" The answer is, of course no. Apart from when they did. You may be familiar with the Japanese anime 'Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos', which featured the Rock Lords and was even broadcast in France under the title 'La Revanche des Gobots' (Revenge of the Gobots), apparently dubbed as a direct continuation of the Hanna-Barbara Gobots show... somehow. When I was told about a French Rock Lords cartoon, I assumed it was this that was being referred to.

It was not.

Hold onto your hats, because your mind is about to be blown. The Rock Lords also appear in an official capacity in the 1986 French cartoon 'Bleu, l'Enfant de la Terre' (Blue, Child of the Earth).

I have a massive amount of nostalgia towards Terra-Roc. I never owned him, but I wished desperately that I did! As a child, I had Spike Stone and my friend had Terra-Roc. I felt completely inadequate with Spike Stone next to the green majesty that was Terra-Roc. Did I covert my friend's Rock Lord? Yes. Yes I did.
