Review: Onell Design Glyos Brown Crayboth Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Brown Crayboth Action FigureThis figure doesn't have a name - and wasn't actually sold - so we'll just call him the (officially nameless) Brown Crayboth. Onell Design has dropped in numerous promotional parts and figures, which is one part awesome and one part obnoxious. As someone who was collecting every Crayboth, the freebies being distributed randomly resulted in my chain being broken so now I just grab odds and ends as I go. I'm always delighted by them, and generally the freebie figures are unpainted. This one actually has painted detail.

New Glyos Drop Sunday - Metallic Blue, September 6
New Glyos!   On Sunday, there will be another drop at Onell Design.

The new figures seen so far are metallic blue Argens and Robo Force bucks, but what else?  We don't know - stay tuned for more, and be here at 9:30 PM on September 6 for more.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Skeleden Nemica Icewave Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Skeleden Nemica Icewave Action FigureOnell Design has been great about making numerous recolors of its many toys, and seeing more than one flavor during a mold debut seems to benefit everybody. I snagged Skeleden Nemica Icewave along with the Standard version during the debut, as the blue struck me not unlike the many "holographic" figures from over the years. It's a neat figure, particularly early in its lifespan. There have been a few awesome bright clear figures since, and I assume there will be many more - I just happen to love the blue here.

Skeleton Warriors Kickstarter: Kickstarter Next Week?
The toymaking lovely people at October Toys posted a swell Grimskull Update. The Kickstarter for this Glyos-compatible figure goes up the first week of September, and based on what was previewed at Comic-Con it's looking good.

It's also the 20th anniversary of the brand. If you remember reading about it in Tomart's Action Figure Digest too, that means that you are old and that this is the mummy's curse.

So be sure to save some money, don't blow it all on Force Friday.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Argen MK XVII Electric Revenant Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Argen MK XVII Electric Revenant Action FigureThere used to be a pretty steady stream of new versions of this mold, but the Argen MK XVII Electric Revenant continues the line nicely - and slowly. A ton of Buildman figures are out there, but in the last couple of years we've seen new heads introduced and now we're seeing more deluxe versions bundles with Axis Joints right off the bat. During the launch Onell Design also made matching Dark Teal Axis Joints sets alone, plus Swing Joints and Phase Arms. You've got plenty of room to upgrade this figure, and the set has enough extra pieces to keep it interesting as a $12 packet.
