I am looking for an animated series or a movie, which I suspect is an anime, that I've seen somewhere in (probably early) 90s. I barely remember anything about it but it has been nagging me for decades.
- In one of the scenes, a group of people are observing/studying (they are observing it from a distance in a wild, like looking from binoculars or through a video feed) a 'new' unknown to them robot, think Han Solo observing probe droid in Empire strikes back. This robot can transform into several forms: one is large cat-like, as a leopard , the other is more bull-like and there are probably other forms. This happens in some remote place, probably a desert.
- Later a large group of these robots attack some village or town
- There is also a scene on some large advanced spaceship that is either travelling towards or observing a planet where this takes place.
I am pretty sure about the first point but last two might be false memories of some other shows.
