MECHANIC ORIGINAL - Bjillion Bots

Just beyond the edge of the Milky Way lies a tiny, wondrous planet unlike anything we’ve ever seen!

Welcome to Bjillion...a bustling city and artificial world inhabited by a colorful array of “BOTS” of every, size, shape, function, and personality. In the heart of our living, ever-moving city, five friends, (Shiny, Fixer, Jett, Wheels and Fidget) do their best to save the day, make a difference, set things right, and keep Bjillion moving like a well-oiled, precision machine. But that’s not always easy when things break down, seize up and go haywire. Luckily, our heroes are there to keep things running smooth.... mostly smooth...well, smooth with a few comical hiccups along the way.
