I’m looking for smart piece depicting a troll (maybe orc?) with big obvious cybereyes.  I seem to remember it from one of the old edition rulebooks. Black and white iirc, i want to say Laubenstein but not sure. I seem to remember a funky pose too.

That's an ork.

The Laubenstein art from SR1 has the human samurai with obvious cybereyes (the mirrorshades sort); the elf from SSC (Street Samurai Catalog, aka the Street Samurai Sourcebook) also has obvious cybereyes.  The troll, ork, and dwarf's eyes are all apparently natural, or at least not visibly enhanced.  I have not, alas, been able to spot artwork of which you speak.

I have a vague memory from a Cyber source book (2 or 3e) of a large troll with headware/eyeware...

IF I remember everything correctly, the troll was in the center back, holding a dwarf(?) by the head, other runners surrounding the troll, pointing weapons at him. The location looked like a lab maybe? I remember having the feeling the troll was an "patient" there.. 
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

that's the pick I was thinking about. But probably not what the OP was looking for..

Another possible source is Shadowrun - High Tech & Low Life, a collection of SR artworks.

In one of the older corporate books, there was a troll sitting by a pool with a group of girls with barcodes reading Ellen's Escorts. Perhaps that picture will help?

Guys you‘re the best. But the pic I remember is not one of these. I remember very obvious (like optical zoom obvious) cyber eyes, in a b/w pic.

A run through High Tech & Low Life might be your best bet, then.  I don't recall all the imagery, but I don't remember a troll with lenses extending out.  :/

нет. HT&LL yielded no cyber-eyed trolls.
