This series was later compiled into the ROBOTIX movie for syndication purposes.

Marvel comics made a short lived comic based on the cartoon. A commercial for the comic was made and aired on Saturday mornings.

Robotix (1985) suffered from many of the same problems as Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors (1985). The Robotix toy line featured modular building sets that generally resembled space combat vehicles and were marketed as such. The cartoon characters were completely different. For example, Tyrannix was a building set that built a spaceship, but the character on the cartoon was a humanoid robot. Also, the sets included a generic commander while the cartoon featured human characters. Unlike Wheeled Warriors, the Robotix cartoon did not continue on it's own.

The ROBOTIX toys were advertised as being modular space vessels, but in the cartoon they were represented as giant robots with the implanted consciousnesses of ancient humanoids who had gone into suspended animation when their sun went nova. This may have been what led to the downfall of the toy line in the mid-1980s.

The cartoon had the same premise as the later cartoon Beast Wars: Transformers (1997).
