Scifi Movies/early japanese show on saturday mornings

Question
During the late 70's early 80's, aired on channel 29, I believe, it could have been 17. It came on Saturdays, relatively early in the day. It was a family of giant robots that lived in a mountain. They could turn into spaceships, and had a common enemy, who I think was bald, with a black cape that had a spaceship. No puppets, they were real people.

Answer
Hi Brett

This sounds a lot like Ambassador Magma (1966-1967) (The Space Giants in English- dubbed)

It was in the vein of Ultraman and Giant Robo etc...
