Mighty Orbots was originally released in 1984 in both the U.S. and Japan. One of my favorite intros. It only had a one season run.
Here is the rare photo of the toy protoype that was going to be released by Mattel. They were sadly going through a Tonka lawsuit about their similarity of "Gobots".
This God Mars toy was similar but it was available in U.S. toy stores.
