    this guy found one in taiwan back in 1985

    YouTube - Mighty Orbots robot toy! Wow. from www.Robot-Japan.com

    from what he said in the youtube video its a remold of the godmars combiner set painted up as the orbots but with the head molds for the five individual figures and the combiend form being modeled entirely after the 5 orbots and the head of their combined form as well

    i always thought it would literally be a cold day in hell before anyone ever actually found proof of a mighty orbots figure actually existingin in toy form much less a fellow fan actually owning one

    now if we could just have that happen with the masterpiece godmars set remold wise

    Ebay:
    I think the show originally planned to use a remold/recolor of the God Mars toy, but they ran smack into licensing issues, even though the cartoon had already gone into production. It's possible the molds for the toy had already been made, and possibly even a limited production run before it all got shut down.

    But since this never made it to NA shelves, Mighty Orbots was a toy commercial without a toy, and didn't survive long.

    My thoughts too. Although it could be a licensed item for Taiwan only as well.
