I was trying to find a game I remember from the around 1980 or so. It had metal robot miniatures that were assembled out of stacks of rings where the parts on the rings represented the robot's weapons and limbs. I believe there was a central spindle that they stacked on. Cant remember what they were called though.

Maybe Combots? I can't think of anything else close.

Thanks, I was reading about WOTC and WizKids patents and knew there was prior art for most of them, just forgot the name of that one.

Combots didn't have rings though. Metal minis with little metal bits that you loosely assembled to build up your bots. All the parts were little metal bits.

Cool game btw.
