Shogun Warriors 20 Cover Art by Herb Trimpe!

The Shogun Warriors was a toy line imported to the US by Mattel Toys, featuring giant robots (as seen here). These toys were produced in two different scales... one scale featured two-foot-plus-tall plastic robots, and then there were metal die-cast ones that were about three or four inches tall. Marvel Comics licensed the toy line, and as was their practice for the longest time, tied it in to the existing Marvel Universe... and the Fantastic Four guest-starred in an issue or two (as they also did in the Godzilla comic, and would with the Micronauts).
