Bluestar Outer Space Men Coming around Black Friday
Coming soon: If you're a toy collector of a certain age, "Blue Stars" hold a certain meaning for you - and now it can hold new meaning with the Outer Space Men Bluestar Series revealed on Instagram. Glow in the Dark Blue Astro-Nautilus, Xodiac, and Inferno were teased - and the packaging is gorgeous.  (Gary and Mel, t-shirts please.)

These are expected around Black Friday.

Blue and Glow Rise of the Beasts on September 28
Via Little Rubber Guys: ROTB - Rhino and Scorpion - Green and Blue Glow Set!

I got early samples of these and they're superb.  Blue and green Scorpion and Rhino figures turned out very well, but most importantly, they're dirt cheap.  It's $20 for a set of 4 - a veritable bargain by Glyos standards these days.

Bookmark the store - they go up for sale September 28 at 12:00 PM Pacific Time.

Onell Design Brings Back Armorvor with More Heads on Sunday
New from Onell Design: Savage Cybernetics!

Not one but three heads are teased for what seems like (is) the Armorvor silhouette.  This is exciting.  Also, wings.   How many varieties will there be? No idea - but probably a few.  I'm in.

Set your clocks for Sunday, September 22 at 9:30 PM Eastern.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Gobon Renegade Hunter

Onell Design Glyos Gobon Renegade Hunter Action FigureI'm kind of amazed that the Gobon Renegade Hunter exists as a production figure. Custom Corps figures were shown in 2010 - it seemed almost unthinkable that one would actually get mass-produced for all of us, and here we are. For "existing figure with new parts," this upgraded Gobon is a pretty good deal. I have had this mold in other colors for a while and reissuing silver totally makes sense. (I would also like to see more clear ones.) The construction is the same as it ever was, with removable feet, hands, arms, legs, a 3-piece body, and 2 heads... plus a bonus head this time. You have five faces from which to choose with this release, meaning if you only buy one Gobon mold it may as well be this one.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Rift Renegade Construct

Onell Design Glyos Rift Renegade Construct Action FigureAs part of the twelfth anniversary drop, this Rift Renegade Construct does a good job delivering on the promise of Glyos. Figures usually come with a set array of parts - there are alternate heads or limbs, or weapons, or bonus packs a figure might usually get. For this one, we got a Rift Killer figure with bonus Device Ninja parts and the end result is unsurprisingly great. Having all the parts in one bag tends to change the general feel of the figure - especially if you're the kind of person who keeps parts of the original figure together. It's all the original figure, providing the obsessive with more display options.
