yeah, i also had some transforming blue helicopter from that exact same line.......it was cheap blister-carded stuff, the kind of xformers you'd find at like Drug Stores and stuff.
I remember seeing the Orgroid and it taking me *years* to find out what the ship actually was from. I still to this day have never seen the Orguss anime or have any idea what its about, but I did wind up buying the large Orgroid transforming toy...I want to say its made by either Bandai or by Takatoku from the 80's.
Back in the 80's after Robotech took off, everyone became an anime-junkie overnight and any toy from japan was immediately in the limelight. If it transformed, well, so much the better :)
