So I'm more inclined to believe they were done by Takara as part of a test phase for new concepts.
If those were actual Takara designs, they could possibly have been intended for distribution outside of Japan, since in 1985 most Americans wouldn't have known any better. Of course, anyone can have a stamp made up too, so who knows?

But I'm also suspicious of the fact that some of the alt modes don't look like they actually work with the robot modes.

For example:

But the body design sort of looks like a cross between something from Gundam and something from Orguss, but I'll have to look a bit further. The remaining two are tricky.
