Hi, new here, thought I'd show you a pic of my Android. It's from the late 70's, the only toy that I never could throw away. Does anyone know where I can find the backstory to these characters, I seem to remember this guy was a 'baddie'. The box lasted right up until around boxing day 1979 ish

Doesn't seem to working as it should. The pics should actually appear here, and big enough to be just about legible. Not sure if it's a site problem or something I did wrong.

Nope. Apparently photobucket have fucked around with everything. Used to be legible, the wankers.

If anyone knows where I can see legible pics, or is willing to send them to me, I'd be extremely grateful. I'd like to get the backstory on the Android character, and the accessory packs, for nostalgias sake. Though I do find that as you get older nostalgia ain't what it used to be...

On another note does anyone have an idea of the value of this model IF (big 'if') I was to sell or stick it on ebay ?
He's in good condition but the minus points are :-
no box
silvering on accessory arm and head worn, and to a lesser degree on the chest missile launcher
original left arm lost, has accessory arm as in photo
current right arm elbow section snapped in 1979, but superglue has held it firm through much playing since then (arm joint unaffected, it bends as ever)
the hip joint bearing material seems to be decaying (was fine up to a couple of years ago), there's a grey powder collecting inside thighs
missiles lost 30 years ago
cheers !

PM me your email address and I'll happily send you pics. I got loads.

He wouldn't fetch much on Ebay in that condition. Prices have gone down on Cyborg stuff recently and your optimum time to sell would have been a few years ago, plus he's in a fairly ropey state. You should keep him anyway, for the memories.

yeah, I guessed as much -condition is everything to a collector. It would be hard to reconcile any price with the memories from over 30 years ago anyway !

Hi There...
Thought i would add here... Androids mentioned. I had all the UK figures when i was a kid... sadly all gone now! But now i have started to try and collect a few again. I have just got a UK Android... he is missing his right chest door and has broken missile pegs on his back (and of course no missiles)... My question is does any one know where i can find spares to add to my cool Android?

Thanks for all and any help.

Keep watching e-bay and buy up any broken Androids that have spares you can use.
