I remember watching them as a kid and playing with both toys. They were fun to play with. As a toy I enjoyed the car more. Since you can play with it as a giant robot, sperately, or in a group of 3 (Land, Air, Sea).
I thought the Princess of the Lion Group was cute.
I also remember reading the comics. Those did bring back memories as a kid watching the cartoon in front of the TV each day it was on. If I couldn’t, I would have the parents tape it.
