I'm trying to figure out the name of a movie that I'd always rent when I was a kid. It was on VHS and I think it would've been in the early 90s. They had several tapes out.

Here's a description of it:

It wasn't a cartoon, but I wanna say it was a kids show - it had people dressed up in futuristic armor and I think there were shooting lasers all around. I can't remember what exactly they were fighting, I don't think it was aliens but I'm not sure. I want to say there was a big guy named Tank or something. In one of the episodes the main good guy was stuck in a building in like a wasteland waiting for his friends to come find him. I don't know if it'll help but in the beginning of the movie there was a clip where there was like a spaceship thing that you could strap to your arm and pretend you were shooting the bad guys with it. I never got the chance for the spaceship toy because I guess my parents didn't love me.

But anyways, if you guys could help me figure out the name of this show I would be forever greatful, because for the last 10 years or so it's been bugging me that I can't remember what it was called.

Thanks :)

To make it interesting I'll buy a 20$ gift card to whatever store you'd like (i guess US only) or donate 20$ bucks to a charity of your choice in your name if you can help me figure out this TV show :)

I remember when I used to rent video games, but then we were like...

6 dollars to rent
30 dollars to buy

Better off saving and buying.

Wow your description was so vague. What was that car I used to drive? It had 4 tires and an engine. Was excellent for going back and forth to various activities. I want to say it was blue but it could have been red...
