Starriors by Tomy


Big thanks to fellow WP blogger Virtuanaut for sharing the image scans from the Starriors Marvel mini-comics series. To view the complete series be sure to visit Virtuanaut’s site.

Starriors was a short-lived line of toy robots made by Tomy in 1984 and 1985. The figures were released with Marvel mini-comics (6 comics in total). Marvel also published a 4-issue comic book series. Some of the Starriors toys were later altered and re-branded for European markets as R.A.T.S (Robot Anti-Terror Squad).

  1. Hi TVTA, I vaguely remember these TOMY toys (Ripsaw seems familiar) but what amazes me is how closely they resemble the Hasbro Transformers. The Pterodactyl shaped droid looks like the audio cassette robots that came with Soundwave the Decepticon that transformed into a cassette player device.
