This is one of those '80s cartoons that had to come up with human characters to go along with the cool non-human toy centerpieces, but the humans couldn't overshadow the toys. So they went with the most generic sci-fi stereotyped humans imaginable.
I had two of the big sets of these things. I played with them to the point the arms cracked and the connectors split. That took about 3-4 years. I really missed them, especially using the switchboard with the motors, claw, and the walker chassis that you could use to pull your battle wagon of death.
Bonus points for putting a motorized giant fucking metal T-Rex head in with each set.
