okay, I got one.

It was a storybook from the late 80s/early 90s and it was a total Transformers rip off with giant robots fighting at a dam. The cover featured a big red human-like robot. I don't remember much beyond that but one of the robots was called "Twin" i think. And at the end, the good robots were presented medals by the "president of earth"

And just to be clear, it wasn’t Go-Bots.  It might be good to get that out of the way.

oh yeah, it wasn't gobots at all


These bots were massive, or at least there wasn't a very good sense of scale.

Any of these look familiar?

A bit off topic, but the Convertors look familiar to me as I think I might've had one.

hard to tell. anytime i click that link my computer slows down and the page won't entirely load.

I do remember coming across that link a few weeks ago though and i don't think any of those were the bots in question.

Out of those ten (one of which were the Go-Bots), the only thing that might've fit the description you gave were these:

Looking for the name/any info on, a fantasy MA movie where a guy goes on a quest and yadda yadda, he ends up looking at a book w. mirrors for pages.
Guess the answer was himself?
I remember liking it, but never saw it as an adult.

Wealth & Fame he ignores, breaking scourge, is his reward. Look out!

I guess Kung Fu Panda took inspiration from that movie.  I suggest googling all the easter eggs from that one.

Sorry, that was not clear at all.  Here.  IMDb has a list of all the references and stuff in movies.

Seems like your movie is Circle of Iron.

Circle of Iron sonds interesting.  Starred David Carradine and Chritopher Lee and was co-written by Bruce Lee before he died.
