EXO SQUAD


Kevin here, lately I've been doing a deep dive on Exosquad. If you dont remember, it was a short lived cartoon (just 2 seasons) in 93 and a toy line from 93-96. There was also a comic put out by Topps (man I just love the TCU, their movies are so great) and a sega genesis game.

The cartoon was only 54 episodes before it was cancelled due to some late 90's network shenanigans. It died at a 4am slot. I mean, you know how kids are always up at 4am watching cartoons, how could it have failed? Season 1 is 13 episodes and is the only thing to make it to DVD. Season 2 can be found in poor quality on youttube, good luck.

Towards the end of it's toy run, Playmates acquired the Robotech license and re-released all of the 80s vehicles originally produced by Matchbox. They were very similar in colors with just a few changes here and there. Robotech/Exosquad never had a cross over in the cartoon, but they were both future based cartoons in space....soooo....that.

I'll be updating regularly with new, FASCINATING aspects of Exosquad that you never knew existed. For example, did you know there were knock off toys from Tech Wars called tech suits? No you did not.

Suit up squad!
