lukewarm showing of the two new Henshin Cyborg series (Neo and Double
Nine), Takara in 2000
decided to follow the relaunch of Microman line and began to reissue
vintage Henshin Cyborg toys. The first toy to be reissue was the
Cyborg-2 Shonen Cyborg. Takara also decided to "reissue"
8" version of King Walder as King Walder Jr. which until now was
only sold in England as Muton as part of the small licensed 1/8
scale Henshin Cyborg line by Denys Fisher in the early
1970's. The Shonen reissued line was extremely limited and stretch
out into 2001 with few more re-releases. By 2002, Takara Henshin
Cyborg series went back on hiatus, the only cyborg toy was the recycled Neo Henshin Cyborg body
that was retooled and released as
part of the Cool Girls (1/8 scale female sci-fi figures) line under X (Cross) Borg banner.
(This line was
also sold in the US as Cy Com) (See - Cy
Com / X Borg).
(1/8) version of Henshin Cyborg toys were produced and sold in England
by Denys Fisher in the mid 1970's. Several figures from Takara
Henshin Cyborg line were sold in 8" Shonen Cyborg size
including 8" versions of Cyborg-1, King Walder, and even several of
the Android A series toys. Denys Fisher Cyborg are extremely rare
and much sought after by Cyborg collectors.
