Robostrux were basically repackaged Zoids models which had already been released in Japan and the UK, only with nicer color schemes and different names. Like the European models, Robostrux were divided into two teams, Blue = Good Guys and Red = Bad Guys. In the case of Robostrux, the model parts for the "Blue" team really were blue and grey with red-tinted cockpits (where as the European "Blue" team was mostly made up of silver and dark grey pieces). The Robostrux "Red" team was mostly dark maroon and various colors of beige and brown with green-tinted cockpits. The European "Red" team, by contrast, was a really ugly bright red and silver combo with yellow cockpits. (ugh!)

The only significant difference between the US and the UK models in terms of team-color distribution is the Robostrux model, Brutox, which is a member of the "Blue" team. The European version (named Redhorn) is a member of the "Red" team. Below is a rough chart of the name changes:
