60's/70's/80's animated sci-fi film

Hi!

I'm looking for a movie with a main character in the style of Starchaser but it's not the same film. A little more gritty which is why I think it might be earlier than the 80's, but not sure.

I remember a scene with robots trying to take his (the main characters) arm? They needed limbs to replace their lost ones. There's also scenes in a club in a big metropolitan futuristic city.

 

Hope you can help

Was it in english?
This list is the closest thing I know should help, if it is an actual movie:  http://www.imdb.com/search/title?genres=animation,sci_fi&release_date=1960,1989&title_type=feature,tv_movie,video
it was, yes! I remember it was on netflix in the earlier days if that helps!
Hmm. I really am not a purveyor of the animated arts, so it makes it hard for me to know what it is. I did a quick search, from 60-89, which you have above, but I do not know what I am looking at, exactly. Hopefully you may know by looking at the titles. It is a changeable search if it needs to be after 89. If it was one of the last 100 things you watched on netflix instant, it should be in your watched history, viewable on your pc. If you got it from netflix dvd, all that you have ever rented will be listed in a related link on there. If I can help somehow, please let me know. I will do my best.
You say it's not "Starchaser: The Legend of Orin" (1985), but that scene is in this movie:

From Wikipedia:
Orin digs a tunnel to the surface of Trinia, where he is later captured by Man-Droids, a group of decaying half-organic, half-robotic beings who intend to tear him apart and use his body parts to replace their own.

Also, there is a city scene:
Dagg flies the Starchaser to a city called Toga-Togo on the planet Bordogon, where he abandons Orin and gives Silica to a slave auctioneer. Orin wanders through the city, trying to find a clue that will lead him to the location of the hilt's blade.

You know what, I need to check it out deeper! I think you're right! I only looked at the cover art and it looked too "high def" to be what I remembered, but I think you're actually right. I'll go watch it again

Thanks so much :)
Turns out it actually was Starchaser: Legend of Orin
Thanks again all of you!

I'll place it as the answer:

"Starchaser: The Legend of Orin" (1985)

From Wikipedia:
Orin digs a tunnel to the surface of Trinia, where he is later captured by Man-Droids, a group of decaying half-organic, half-robotic beings who intend to tear him apart and use his body parts to replace their own.
