The Airgam figures ae great, I love this kind of retro-style generic space toy.

The metallic red figure in the Chogokin pic is Venus-A from Great Mazinger. Every toy collection needs at least one figure with firing breast missiles!!

X-Changers information is still fairly underground at the moment, that's not to say it doesn't exist, just that I have friends who collect them who wouldn't thank me for public posting. Feel free to PM me if you want to know more. The two pictured are the only ones I have at the moment, but I've had several others over the years that I've eventually traded for something I wanted more.

Great Stuff Gort!
I can never get enough of your collection pix!


I have almost bought the playset many ties, but I was worried it would just be Cheap VACUFORM...

Do you know anything about this?

What are those PLOTTERS?
Never seen or heard of them.

I have never seen these Complete with the vehicles before.

http://www.virtualtoychest.com/p/plotter/plotter.html

I had previously seen ONE of them.
The Wind up dinos and Robots I have seen, but only mass reproduced versions in generic colours.
Were these figs perhaps issued in the Pound shops around 1991?
Nothing like the big collection in the link above though. But that guy is in South America.

Again Great stuff Gort! Were the UK releases issued with vehicles?
My guess is that like the windup robots & Dinos, these figures were issued in a variety of ways all over the world.
Usually released separately, but
South America prolly pooled all the things together and
came up with their own interiguing releases.

Sort of like the South American 12" Falcon Space figures with a Wind-up Twikki style robot, or how Action man ended up with the vehicle from the Bionic Man. If you can get away with it, you can do some amazing things by blending toylines.

I'm fairly sure Plotters were sold in the UK although I don't remember them personally. I know they were sold in the Netherlands and most likely France and Belgium as well as the States. I've been in contact with Humberto, whose collection pics those are, in the past so I can also confirm Chile.

There are at least three releases; Plotter, the Power Ranger type guys and also the metalic versions. I manily go after the figures so I'm less interested in the wind-ups and dinos, although I wouldn't mind one or two of the Mad Max-esq vehicles.


Guy; I've been tempted by that Airgam playset myself but I don't really have the space. It's from the Super Fantastic / Diabolic line of superhero type figures (I'll have to post a pic of my dubious Batman look-a-like). I can't say for sure on it's quality but I do have several Airgam vehicles, as well as the dinosaur in the picture above, and everything I have from the line is very good quality plastic, so I would be surprised if the castle wasn't as well.

Yea I am liking the mad max bike.
What I think is interesting is that Cybo fans are so on the FRINGE with their collecting.
We all either recognize half of what you posted, or we would buy it if we saw it.

Dokuroking, the mechadino things are called Megadons, I believe that is the full set. I'll try and put names to the pictures over the next few days, and I've found a few more pics I can add as well.

Guy, The figures nex to the FP Adventure People are a line called Heroes by Hestair, they were also released as Tiny Tuffys.

The Boxed set is actually Gort's boxed set. I just assembled the photo together from pix I found online.

Thanks again for the nice comments, it's nice to know my pics are appreciated.

Credit for the boxed pic must go to Guy for patching together a decent image from the two crappy photos I took before I opened it.

Also an interesting point about Cyborg collectors, or at least the people on this forum; it's the oddities and obscure toys in everyone's collections here that have made this one of my favourite little corners of the internet. I love seeing what someone is going to turn up next.

I'm not familiar with a lot of the stuff, I find it mind blowing the amount of cool stuff there is out there, and love looking at the pictures.

Gort - Thanks for the madelman link, I wasn't familiar with the 80s or cosmos stuff, only the 70s.

In between them and clear Membros there are three transparent micro- sized figures. What are they, please?


Sorry Hypno, I forgot I was going to add a close up. To recap they're a Halo Master Chief clear version, G.I. Joe Collector's Club clear Zartan and an Onell Design Exellis figure.
