When I was a kid I had this tape my parents friend gave me which was of shows from Fox Kids. Sadly when I was around eight we lost it.

Ever since I've been trying to figure out what one of the shows was.
It was a completely CGI show where people got in mechs and fought each other in an arena.

Can anyone remember what it was?

Sounds like Heavy Gear (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavy_Gear#TV_series) to me.

And here is an intro (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KQdl5k3y0E) i found on youtube.

Sort of made me think of the old Battletech cartoon, but it wasn't arena fighting. Depending on "when you were a kid" it also might be a lot older than what you are thinking.

Can't see the youtube video because of the blocks, but the mention of the Shadow Dragons and the Vanguard seem rather familiar, it very well may be Heavy Gear.

I didn't even know there was a Battletech cartoon. Also I was born in 1996 so me being a kid was around 1999-2006.

Next best i can do for you is a link to this (http://www.angelfire.com/ca4/sarahdouglasp2/heavygear.html) which includes some stills from the show as well as some DVD box-covers.


Hope it helps.(Or that you can at least see it. :smalltongue:)

That is definately the show, as I can recognise the appearance of the mech on the main menu and the cover from the episode. Thanks.

Also a strange coincidence, yesterday I found an copy of my dads Heavy Gear computer game.
