Toys TOYS

Cyborg, Muton and Android

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Does anyone remember these three action figures from the 70's? They were about 12" tall and parts of the arms could be replaced with weapons. Cyborg was clear, Muton was purple, I never had Android though. Would be really great to see pictures of these toys.

Do You Remember Cyborg, Muton and Android?

    Glad to learn that I hadn't imagined these toys. Among my Christmas presents one year in the 70s I got Muton with the Creature-from-the-Black-Lagoon-type outfit while my brother got Cyborg. The villainous Muton was supposedly the arch enemy of Cyborg (who was a 'goody'). I remember Cyborg's 'diamond edged' cutting tool arm accessory and his vehicle attachment into which his ankles fitted that was like a flying saucer with wheels. The packaging included some great information about each toy such as the fact that Cyborg had diamond infused skin. Sadly, in my excitement, I ripped the packaging to bits before I learned that a lot of Muton facts were on it! I also remember seeing a large shop window display with a diarama of an alien planet with the actions figures engaged in battle. Really loved my Muton.

    Muton's alternative costumes (officially called Subforms) were called X-Akron (red roboty fella), Amaluk (green amphibian bloke) and Torg (black skellington dude with horns).

    I remember these too :) I was one of the very lucky ones who had been given all 3 of the characters off my parents, and the 'huge' spaceship off my Grandparents for Christmas :D (no we wern't rich at all, it was all from a mail order catalogue, Marshel Ward i think it was. The spacecraft seemed massive to me, and mine made a wonderful echoing springy noise as that dome section opened up slowly - i had wondered if that was just by accident with the spring mechanism, or they wanted that effect ? I thought Android was great looking, Muton was CrEePy, and Cyborg looked cool with the biggest weapons attached. Wonderful memories from this :)

    Wow, I'm amazed at the number of people on the web who actually remember these toys!! I also had the Muton figure, I thought it was so cool that you could see all his guts, brain etc! My folks were never well off financially, but in retrospect they somehow managed to do a great job of getting me the most awesome toys. My friend had the Android, and later traded it to me. Unfortunately, I'm not sure quite what happened to Muton and the Android, they got broken/dissassembled and eventually lost over the years; I managed to hold onto Muton's snake hand for a long time afterward, but it is alas now also gone. I guess I should have been better at keeping hold of all that stuff- still have my Palitoy Millennium Falcon from 1978 though :) Scottishbloke

    Blimey! A while back I was trying to remember what these figures were called. I got them when I was about 12 in the mid '70's, but I too just had Cyborg & Muton - never did get the much sort after Android! They had some great attachments and I recall Muton having just an orange brain for a head? Wish I'd kept them for my son - he'd love them now.

    I had the space ship as well, the domed lid used to open really slowly in a jerky kind of way, then there was a smaller craft inside that you could take out and pretend to fly round the room as kids do, making noises etc
