TAKARA'S ALIEN INVADER Z

Although this isn't a Neo Henshin Cyborg, you're likely to find them lumped together because they're both made by Takara, and they both have clear parts. Maybe they even fit together in a storyline or something. The reason I'm writing this is to warn you-- this one ain't at all like the NHC figures.

This is a strange-looking figure molded in soft, clear, vinyl. In a lot of ways, it's like a vinyl kit but cheesier. The "articulation" is all swivel, from one part being inserted into the hole in another. There aren't any hinges at all. The alien head is removeable, and there's a tiny robotish head underneath.

It's got a kind of goofy retro-kitsch quality though (isn't that chest-face thingie weird?), and works as a kid's toy-- one you might throw in the pool or bathtub. Needless to say, this is one I won't try transexualizing!

Anyway, I just thought you should know...
