The franchise featured the following two components:
- A toyline, consisting of most of the toys released in Hasbro markets in 1987, with several additional new figures.
- A manga with a different title named The Battlestars.
It's notable that this franchise doesn't own its animation, so does the next franchise Operation Combination.
Battlestars continued the storyline of the animated continuity, picking up where Zone left off, but was never actually animated. Instead, the story was told through a single issue of manga (which was a mail-away offer, no less) and story pages.
Battlestars, story-wise, takes place at the same time as Operation Combination.
