Anuboid was to be a fictional character from the Micronauts series. He was a proposed toy Palisades toy that was never released.

Micronauts

Anuboid was one of several figures for wave 2.5 of the Palisades Micronauts toy line proposed by Bryan Wilkinson. It mixed parts from Centaurus, Membros, Pharoid and Repto.

Development

In February 2004 Bryan Wilkinson posted a picture of his custom Anuboid on Flickr.[1]

Bryan Wilkinson discusssed Anuboid on Facebook in 2018.

I had suggested an Anuboid figure for Palisades 2.5... would have had a mix of Membros and Centaurus parts with Membros bits painted to look like a mummy, and have a painted Time Chamber.
Yes. It would have had a Membros torso too. It was a rough idea, but I think painting the body in a white drywash with some detailing to suggest zombified flesh could have looked effective. I do have a custom figure like above but with clear orange pelvis and lower legs, and a modified head that has painted eyes and no exposed brain. I will try to find a pic later of that.

Toys

  • Palisades Micronauts Anuboid (unreleased)
This figure would have used the body of Membros (mostly the black Palisades Membros, but with upper legs, waist and cuffs and feet from the clear yellow Palisades Membros), the head and shield of Centaurus (black parts), the gun from Repto (black gun from the Palisades clear Repto) and the Time Chamber from Pharoid.
