I was wondering if you guys could help me.
I used to have this awesome brown cat cyborg toy as a kid.
It had one black eyepiece with a green eye and if I recall correctly it was a lot like a Bionicle.
I'm desperate to find it. Help is appreciated.
I posted this in Everything Else first but realized that's the wrong forum for that.
Hopefully a mod can delete the other thread.

This? I'm sorry, but it doesn't even look like it.
Thanks for trying though.

Drawing I posted in the thread in the wrong forum.
Still waiting for that one to get locked.

Could it come apart, because I think I know what you're talking about. Can you give a year?

It could. Because I lost the head one time.
I'm not entirely sure. But if I recall correctly I definitely had it before I was 7, and I'm 16 now.

Xerzoz or Xerox is the name of the toyline, I think. Don't quote me on the spelling.

It might be a stretch, could it be Freakenstein from Small Soldiers? He has pointy ears, an eye patch, sharp teeth and is a cyborg too. I tried googling what you described, but found nothing.

Could it be a Ben10 Lego figure?

I'm pretty sure it's whatever you suggested, snake. But I'm nothing without the right name.

Is it possible you could draw a picture from what you remember of it?

I posted a drawing earlier. But I accidentally deleted it and I can't use my PC with scanner so here's a mspaint drawing from what I vaguely remember.
Very vaguely. Not even sure about it having ears or the eye colour.

If we can figure out who this toy is, and if he's inexpensive enough he could make a good custom base.

Watch it turn out to be a one of a kind Verminator prototype that Amaranthus found as a kid.

He wasn't bipedal though. It was on four legs.
My drawing would have been better if it wasn't such a long time ago when I owned it.

That changes everything! I had an image in my mind of what I was entirely sure was "it" but I couldn't think of what it was. Now I don't have a lead at all.

Probably referring to Xevoz. I don't see any figures matching your description though.

I spotted this guy, which matches some of the description, some of the time:

http://www.oafe.net/yo/xevrc.php

(Like in one pic he's on all fours, in another, looks like a cyborg eye)

To be honest, when I see that pic all I can think of is Verminator X :D

It's not Xevoz, he's on four legs, and he's definitely brown.
Thanks for trying though. I'm starting to lose hope on finding it. My description's just too vague and my drawing sucks.

Not sure about it having the cat-ears I drew.

What about a tail? Did it do anything like transform? Did it's mouth open or was the head all one piece? Did it have armor or any distinguishing marks on the body?

I wish I could remember more. But I had it when I was like 6.
It couldn't transform. Not sure about the rest though.

Hi, I want to help find this toy for you. I did a Google search for Mega Blocks. I am hopeful that maybe this is him:

That's it. It looked different in my memory but that's because it was so long ago.
But that's definitely him.

Thanks, MewMeow.

I'm glad that's the toy. When you said that it was similar to Bionicle, that reminded me of Mega Bloks.

Early in this topic, I thought maybe it was a Xevoz figure.

On the topic of trying to find something, there was this old cartoon clip or short cartoon of a sea creature that is talking or singing. Cartoon Network showed it. The sea creature might be talking to some dude. Does anyone know what cartoon that might be?
