Awesome Toy Picks: 'Teen Titans Go!' Cyborg

A cool collectible you'll want to add to your collection. Booyah!

Each week we take a close look at a comic book collectible. That means taking it out of the package. With the success of Teen Titans Go! on Cartoon Network (yes, people still complain about it but the ratings are great), some merchandise has started to surface.

There's a couple different versions of Cyborg available. This one stands about 8" and comes with a removable "rocket launcher" and cybernetic eye (more on this in a moment). The other version I saw at Toys 'R Us is about 5" and only has a removable power jet pack (no cybernetic eye option).

Unfortunately the back of the packaging is a little misleading.

It shows the entire team but it doesn't appear they are all available. I only saw this version of Cyborg and 5" versions of Cyborg and Robin. Even looking at Jazwares website, they only show these along with a 2" multipack (which is selling for insane prices on eBay and Amazon) along with plushies of Robin, Cyborg and Trigon. The website has no text information whatsoever on this line.

But Cyborg is pretty cool looking.

Because it's based on the cartoon, there's not an abundance of detail, but there really isn't a need for it. With the size of this, it actually has a tiny bit of heft to it. His joints are a little on the loose side, making it feel like it has more playability. Surprisingly, it stands very well considering it has more weight on the top.

There is some articulation. You can rotate his head and wrists. There are joints at his elbows and knees. There are also some rotating ball-joints at the hips and arms.

Let me emphasize that no assistance was given to the figure in getting it to stand on the uneven surface. I was impressed. You can see how the legs can rotate.

Besides being bigger than the other version, when I saw it had a "cybernetic eye," I was immediately reminded of the old Six-Billion Dollar Man figure with a "bionic eye" (you might've seen it mentioned on an early episode of Comic Book Men). On the back of his head, you can look in to see out through his eye.

Sadly, it just works okay. It's a little hard to make out what you're supposed to be looking at when you peer through his head. Everything has a pinkish tint and you can see the target. It's still kind of cool.

You can also see above that there are some slots in his back. This is where the "rocket launcher" fits in.

Cyborg is a hilarious character on the show. I can't decide if I want this figure on my desk at home or at the office. It'd be great if they made the other characters as well. If they did, this large size might be too much. Hopefully we will see more. More merchandise means a better chance for the show to stay on the air if it continues to be profitable.

That's it for this week. We'll have another item spotlighted next time.

What are your thoughts on this figure? Is it one you'd consider buying? Have you even seen it at stores?

What happens to this show if you don't purchase the toys?

Edited by Beast_in_the_Shadows

Cy is considerably bigger than the others in the show, I could see them selling the other 4 in two packs. Starfire and Robin, then Raven and Beast Boy. Or sell them separate but give them more props. Like Star could Have Silkie and Beast boy could have his dancing cat self.

yes

This is great. I had a lot of the original Teen Titans toy from early 2000's. Used to keep a tiny Cyborg stuck to the dash of my truck.

Can't stand this show, but I hope it does good in the merc department. Hopefully CN doesn't cancel like it did a certain other show I won't mention...

Cool. I love the Teen Titans Go! show. I thought I would hate it, but I stopped forcing my emotions on it. It has charm. Cy, Robin and Starfire are my favorite characters.

Oh man, look at his little happy face. Super cool :P

Awesome!!!

I'm kind of surprised it doesn't have an interchangeable Dog Hand accessory. One can dream. Still though, that looks pretty robust and I feel that the style of the show made the transition to toy form pretty well!

Teen Titans GO! is the best show on television right now.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,...WWW.PERFECT23.COM

@justthatkid: It gets cancelled for more Batman of course.

At this rate I think CN doesn't like Bats anymore since "Beware the Batman" is going through the same crap Young Justice went through and will likely get cancelled. Somebody really needs to kick Stuart Synder to the curb.

I didn't even know that the animated cartoons on CN made most of there money from merchandise. I thought it was views :/

@black_claw:

I don't think they are liking anything DC much. I am happy to see Teen Titans Go! remaining successful. I really like that show. Hopefully if Beware of the Batman does get cancelled we'll see something Superman, Wonder Woman, or Justice League orientated.

Edited by Black_Claw

@crazyscarecrow: And if we do get a show along the lines of those that you predicted, they'll eventually find a way to cancel those shows while still keeping ones that appeal to the lowest common denominator. Personally, I think it's high time DC puts it's show on a brand new channel if CN doesn't stop with their BS.

Posted by CrazyScarecrow

@black_claw: Maybe they could start having a morning long DC Nation block on the CW showing both new and old DC cartoons. I think the only reason why CN is getting the DC shows is because they are both owned by Time Warner.

Posted by Black_Claw

@crazyscarecrow: Well all I know is that they need to get DC properties off of Cartoon Network ASAP if they don't clean up their act.

Posted by CrazyScarecrow

CW (also owned by Time Warner and already airs Justice League Unlimited) or the Hub (they already air Batman, Superman, and Batman Beyond) are the channels they should move their animation to.

Posted by Black_Claw

@crazyscarecrow: Well since the hub treats their action shows with respect, I say DC should move there. That and I just want to see CN suffer after all that they've done.
