There's 3 "Toei Robot Girls" so far
The girl on the top is Baratack from Chojin Sentai Baratack(Superhuman Combat Team Baratack).
Gaiking from "Great Sky Demon Dragon Gaiking". Vampire teeth must be her charming feature.
According to the Toei Animation's web page for cell phone access, these are "the first stage of character refinement" to "revive masterpieces buried alive in new appearance". Free wallpapers for cell phone provided at the site.
Since they're saying "first stage", there should be second, third and so on. Toei's Robot animations not yet Moe-personificated are "Wakusei Robo Danguard Ace", "Starzinger", Kikou Kantai Dairugger XV, "Albegas", Video Warrior Laserion. They should apply moe-personification on every robot anime they have.
