    If you ever want to get rid of it let me know! . It's been on my want list for a long time haha. Bootleg Shonen Cyborg. Also of significance because Gargmel provides print out guts for the Smoking Corps that are also based on this guy's guts. I had hoped that when that exo head pic showed up that perhaps they were doing some sort of reproducation but it's not a different color it's just been photoshopped with invert. Here it is with that reversed:

    Nice score.

    Thanks for the info Adam! I know you of all people would know.
    I didn't even realize the Exohead pic was inverted!
    So I guess the figure is around 8"ish?

    No idea on the size sadly. I've never seen one in person. I'd love to see some really good pics whenever you get it in hand!

    Through the amazing generosity of Clone, I finally have one of these after about a 13 year hunt around. Thanks! Here he is out of the bag:

    Thanks again Patrick. I hooked him up with one of those new Bandai stands and he's up and set now. I'll snap a pic of him on my shelf.

    Awesome toy, if I were into Henshin Cyborg that would be a must have. I love when boots are inspired and unique enough to stand on their own like this guy. He looks like he could use some Rhinoplasty though.
