The Zeroids Robots action sets were a line of robot toys from the Planet Zero introduced by Ideal in 1967.

Consisting of Zobor, Zintar, and Zerak, the Zeroids robots powered their way into the playful imaginations of kids for almost a decade. They were battery operated with an electric motor and appeared as the brand name "Motorific" in Ideal Corp racing slot cars, and "Boaterific" powered toy motorboats.

An "Action Set" was available with a Missile Defense Pad, launching station, and included a "Solar Cycle" hollow wheel, into which the zeroid robot could be set inside.

There was a brief distribution of a Zeroid flying saucer called the ZEM XXI Explorer Module, cast in yellow and purple, or yellow and green, with a full sized powered Zeroid inside. This saucer was later re-issued as the "Star Hawk" in red and grey plastic, with a non-powered Zeroid with red trim.
