Starriors

The forgotten toy from Tomy

In 1984 Tomy toys released a robot toy line in partnership with Marvel comics. It was called Starriors. Six mini-comics were released with the toyline. During the 1980s robot toys were big business, and the toy had to compete with the likes of Transformers. The toyline was not very successful and eventually only had a one-year run. Today these toys are priceless and sought after by collectors.

Three Factions

The storyline consisted of three factions on futuristic earth. The Protectors, Destructors, and the Guardians. It is a time in the future and life is being threatened by solar flares. Humans decide to go into deep hibernation and develop these intelligent machines to protect them.
