Review: Onell Design Armorvor Athrodak Parasitic Clone

http://www.16bit.com/fotd/200407-glyos-armorvor-arthrodak-clone.shtmlGlyos figures usually turn out as shiny, cool, distinctive little things. The Armorvor Athrodak Parasitic Clone comes in a hitherto-unseen clear flesh color, which looked really cool in the pictures and is even more impressive in person. I'm sorry, I meant to say "unsettling." Capturing the toothy, ghoulish, dead-eyed creatures of the deep in plastic has been tough - the Chap Mei Animal Planet ones looked cute, and every figure or model I see tends to be perfectly nice looking.

New Drop - Toy Pizza Hyper Eel vs. Combat Bugmen

https://www.knightsoftheslice.com/
Stuff sold out fast!  The Toy Pizza Hyper Eel vs. Combat Bugmen Drop saw the return and quick exit of some new figures and a few old ones, but you can still order some gorgeous and colorful Glyos figures.   Will we see even more soon? I hope so!  Until then, get some of these guys, support your indie toymakers and non-chain toy stores, and let's hope things get a whole more boring in the neat future.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Phaseon Renegade Hybrid Caliber

http://www.16bit.com/fotd/200331-glyos-phaseon-renegade-silver.shtmlI got a lot of Glyos figures. I don't need more of them - but the Onell Design crew finds interesting ways to make multiple purchases interesting. This Phaseon Renegade Hybrid Caliber takes the very early odd ball Beanbot mold - which was tweaked to be a Phaseon - and transforms it yet again with parts from Phase Arm upgrade sets, a newly-tooled head, plus a new cloth cape which was also used with the Onell Design Glyos Gobon Renegade Hunter [FOTD #2,127] and a few other figures. The new head and cloth piece were designed to work in multiple configurations on multiple bodies, which is sort of the entire brilliance of this whole line. One small piece can give you a handful of new build options.

Review: Onell Design Lost Sincrodrone Beta

http://www.16bit.com/fotd/200312-glyos-lost-sincrodrone-beta-red.shtml
This Lost Sincrodrone Beta arrived on a particularly cold day - and that's important. Early Glyos releases sometimes needed to be warmed a bit so the plastic had a bit more "give" to it so you could swap parts - and this new set of parts requires some heat. I had to dip the lower torso in warm water so the legs could be inserted. The body block piece is very tight, and fitting stuff in there is initially difficult - but not impossible, if you've got a cup of boiling water.[ READ THE FULL REVIEW ]
