Review: Onell Design Glyos Crayboth Diversus


Onell Design Glyos Crayboth Diversus Action FigureSidekick figures are more or less commonplace in the Glyos universe, as each series focuses on a new color of plastic and runs a number of new and existing figures in that color. Once in a while you get a cool crossover too, which means a figure like Obritron Diversus [FOTD #1,492] can get a little companion like Crayboth Diversus. Decorated vaguely like the Metaluna Mutant from This Island Earth. Due to the painted figures being developed apart from Onell Design, rarely is there a match - but we've got one now!

Review: Four Horsemen Power Lords Ggrapptikk Grunt Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords Ggrapptikk Grunt Action FigureSince this line more or less ended in 2014 (minus a couple of recolors), I wasn't sure if or when I'd get to the Ggrapptikk Grunt. Truth be told, I was kind of hoping the line would just die and I assume that it did. We see occasional updates from the Four Horsemen in forums or elsewhere saying that it isn't, but we haven't seen a new body type debut as a production toy since the first figures hit in 2013. This was a line with a lot of promise and fanfare, debuting near the end of the less ambitious Outer Space Men figures which, I still can't believe it, actually completed the original characters from 50 years ago. Plus the prototype second series. Plus a smattering of new characters. Power Lords updated 2 of the original figures, with numerous recolors and precolors of those molds basically grinding down any goodwill in the line's run. I'm not saying I wouldn't buy a Sydot if we ever got one, but I've got eight flavors of these 4-armed buggers and truth be told I'd have been happy with just one.

Review: Onell Design Outer Space Men Orbitron Diversus

Onell Design Outer Space Men Orbitron Diversus Action FigureLong pauses are as much a part of The Outer Space Men as space itself. The original line took a nap after its 1966 debut until 2010, and every year we'd see a surge of freshness around July with the line usually being over and done with by January until the next July. Selling out faster than you can say "give Uncle Scrotor a hug," Orbitron Diversus was the last new releases were the final "Infinity Edition" figures from February 2014. In that time, the rights to The Outer Space Men reverted back to the brand's owners, which means you're probably not going to see a heck of a lot of new sculpting but you might see more new releases now that the ball is rolling again. I hope. I mean, it's been 50 years - toy nostalgia usually peters out for most adults before they turn 40. Onell Design's new crossover Orbitron takes cues from its original inspiration - notably the Metaluna Mutant from This Island Earth.
