1980s Robot Toys

By | August 1, 2012

In the '80s, the American fascination with Japanese toys and robot action figures exploded when US television broadcasted several animations based on popular robotic toys from Japan. Memorable cartoons such as Robotech, Voltron, Transformers, and GoBots quickly grew in popularity. Robots that change or transformed from vehicles or spaceships became a favorite with American kids. Many of these cartoons were redubbed and imported from Japan. For example, Voltron originally adapted two different anime series, Go Lion and Dairugger, and combined them into a storyline for the Americanized version. Also, Robotech was created from Macross and two other Japanese anime shows. These animations inspired several similar programs and toys. As a result, the 1980s was decade rich with diverse robot action figures for toy collectors.

Today, you have the chance to collect these classic toy robots from the 80s era. Relive your childhood by collecting classic famous robot toys and action figures such as Transformers, Gobots, Macross, Robotech, or Voltron for sale.
