Starriors were a spin-off toy line from the previously released Zoids toy line. They featured action figures but with Zoid pegs so that extra weapons could be attached to them. There were a few models that featured pull-back motors in them. Like smaller Zoid models, Starriors had a wind-up motor that would rotate weapons, et cetera. Each Starrior was piloted by a Zoid pilot (those tiny gold or silver pilots found in Zoids kits).
