When I was a kid, Zoids were called Robo Strux. At least they were here in the U.S. I loved putting the cool robot dinosaurs together, winding up the little engines, and watching them walking around. Later they came back as Techno Zoids, and then just Zoids. It was around the Techno Zoids era that I learned that they were from a Japanese toy line called Zoids and there was more to these neat robot animals than just what I knew.
