Stop motion animation by me, Plenty of room for improvement….but not as much as Soundwave when he plays guitar hero!
TOMY R.A.T.S Devastator. R.A.T.S were apparently repaints of the Starriors toy line, released in America, but not in the UK. They shared similarities with Zoids: some of the guns clearly came from the same molds and each robot also had a pilot, identical to the Zoids pilots (the UK Zoids at least). Like Zoids, each robot also had a wind-up motor which causing an action, in this guy’s case the chest blades move from side to side. Unlike Zoids, they also had a switch causing the motor to lock. This meant they could be wound up earlier, locked, and the action could then be released at any time.
Tomy R.A.T.S Twin-Horn and Fire-Eater. Unfortunately they`re missing their guns (which are cheaper remakes of common Zoid guns) and Twin-Horn is missing his horns. Both have guns which extend from their mouths.

Star Raiders RGO Winged Raider from Britains Space toy range. I have the configuration slightly wrong, the correct one can be found at http://www.golobthehumanoid.com/britains1.html
Legions of Power made by Tonka (although on the underside of some pieces is printed Bandai 1985). These toys came in named configurations but could be taken apart to create your own vehicles. There were two opposing forces, ‘Star Legions’ (Blue) and ‘Tech Dynasty’ (Red). They didn’t seem to be very popular (in the UK at least) so they now appear to be quite rare.
