Is there any mechanical designs from 80s syndicated animation shows like Thundercats and G.I Joes which you find particularly interesting or memorable?

The Transformers had some interesting mechanical designs(Particularly in the 80's Movie), also the very obscure Visionaries: Knight's of Magic Light has some very cool Magic Power armor(at least in animation).

hi first time posting here.
After a trip down memory lane and some "googling" here is a by no means complete list.

1. GI Joe- don't laugh, there are some interesting things there, such as the legged sleds used to attack the mountain fortress, the cobra robots and the flying carrier.

2. Pole Position- i'm fond of the blue concept car.

3. Adventures of the galaxy rangers- most of the spacecraft.

4. Starcom- the bad guy's mothership

5. Mighty Orbots- the orbot

6. Centurions, power extreme- the space station and the technology.

7. ulysses 31- most of the ships.

Ok these are from the 90's, but i'll include them as they're cool

1. Exo squad- most of the designs.

2. The Bots Master- jungle fiver, twig, the Bot's party bus (can't remember the name), the enemy giant robots.
