Get Ready: Onell Design Drop on Sunday

http://onelldesign.blogspot.com/2014/10/tracker-type.html
Get ready!  In a new post called "Tracker Type", Onell Design confirms that there will indeed be a new Glyos drop at 9:30 PM on Sunday, October 26 - just before Halloween! Promised: Halloweeny Crayboth. Also promised: the new Armorvor head isn't ready.

Matt Doughty confirms that the cherry-like Sarvos is a nod to the very first Custom Corps release (and Matt Trakker of M.A.S.K.), and I must say it does look swell.  More soon! Don't miss it!

http://toyfinity.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-original-steele-forged-hero.html
Attention news-starved Robo Force fans - ToyFinity posted art of THE ORIGINAL STEELE-FORGED HERO!  The Basic Maxx Zero looks a whole heck of a lot like a great update of the original Maxx Steel from the 1980s, and I can only hope this means he'll be up for grabs in the ToyFinity store soon.

Review: ToyFinity Mordles Night Mordle Vinyl Figure


ToyFinity Mordles Night Mordle Vinyl FigureIt's green! The Mordles Night Mordle Vinyl Figure brings you elements of two of Hasbro's bigger 1980s properties, and applies them to Mordles. You get the "cutie mark" (nee Tramp Stamp) of My Little Pony with colors and themes reminiscent of the 1980s G.I. Joe Night Force figures of 1988-1999. As a series of repaints, those two toy lines are a perfect fit for this, the fifth big vinyl 4-inch Mordle.

Vinyl Kabuto Mushi from The God Beast

http://instagram.com/p/thQmSPuoB1/Marty "The God Beast" Hansen is a talented fellow who loves toys - and makes some nice ones.  His latest creation appeared on Instagram late Sunday with the following message:
"Been sculpting for 3-4 weeks now...hope to have prototypes of this sculpt ready/available for Designer-Con November 8th & 9th!!!"

He had more to say on the October Toys forums"6 total parts I think, 4 different possible faces/characters (with paint apps), upright & all 4's possible poses, a hidden function and possible hidden removable creature too!!!"

Typically, he casts some toys and sells the prototypes a few months to a year before a mass-produced version takes place. A  big advantage here is that he often takes requests and will make one in the color of your choosing - which is certainly a great way to get a one-of-a-kind collectible.  Keep an eye on the October Toys boards just in case this opportunity comes up.
