One of my favourite non Mego Lines, which actually borrows from the Micronauts somewhat. Hard as hell to find MOC, I snagged one recently for $25 and made a very teenage girl esque scream.

Love this new forum!! I also TRY to collect 'em, but, man, people go crazy over these guys - I've only won hidden auctions for them.

I had one, but I didn't know it was from this line for years. Our neighbor gave it to me for Christmas one year. It was a gold robot, kind of C3PO like. He was usually a badguy for my Pocket Heroes to fight!

The thing I remember most about him was his weight. He had quite a heft to him!

A guy brought a couple of these over to my table at the last toy show and asked me if I knew anything about them. They were pretty cool, reminded me of the magnetic figures without the magnets. I used to think they were called zymex and not zylmex. Search for both on Ebay because I see them listed both ways periodically.

Ga Dang! I love these, I have had all of them from time to time, and everytime I get rid of them they start to reappear again. We got about 10 one Christmas (77) I think along with Micronauts and the Battle Cruiser... The other benfit was you could do damage if you winged at the head of a fellow player :grin:

How does one get into a 'hidden' auction?

Peace,
