Thanks to Branded in the 80s I got the joy of watching this one minute faux commercial for CyberClaus action figures. Just in time for Christmas we can watch this bit of brilliance and then ask Santa: Hey, Santa, when will your cybernetic form land in our stockings?

No further product images as yet tho, meanwhile,
