One of my favorite manga and anime, Cyborg 009. Created i 1963 by the prolific Shotaro Ishinomori also known for creating 8-Man, Kamen Rider, Ninja Arashi, Kikaider and many more Japanese characters/shows which are still popular today.

These vinyl toy figures made in the 70s in Japan by the Takatoku company are in my opinion the best renditions of the Cyborg 009 characters. Most Japanese clear vinyl for various reasons, tends to discolor and turn yellow, but the vinyl on these beauties is crystal clear.
