Review: Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Neo Phase Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Neo Phase Action FigureThe Armorvor Neo Phase is the end of an era. Along with the Rig Crew Mimic Armorvor, these two guys round out the final run of wolf-headed Armorvors - the furry head goes into retirement and will be replaced by something new in late October. Until then, these two figures - and a fifth run of the super-popular clear colorless version - seem to be available in the Onell Design store. They're quite nice, and if you never picked up an Armorvor I'd strongly advise you do so now as it really is the last chance to get this head outside eBay. Over two years we've had dozens of the little guy, but this is the first and only clear plastic one to feature painted details. The Infection Red and Stealth clear colorless releases are undecorated.

Sunday Glyos Drop Has Final Wolf Armorvor Heads end of an era! One of my all-time favorite toys of this decade is the Onell Design Armorvor - I've bought every production version to date, and this weekend's drop will have the final wolf heads.  Matt Doughty writes:

"There will be two all new Armorvor colors available this Sunday night [snip], as well as the return of the clear colorless Stealth Armorvor MK V.  These three runs mark the last time that the "wolf" head will be produced, as something new will be taking its place in the Armorvor mold starting in late October."

What's next? I can't wait to find out.  The final drop is at 9:30 PM Eastern on Sunday.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Glyaxia Command Mimic Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Glyaxia Command Mimic Action FigureThe Armorvor Glyaxia Command Mimic is a little less colorful than his ancestors, but it brings us a second blue Armorvor - and this is a good thing. Previously we've had an unpainted "OMFG Mimic" and a dark blue "Ecroyex Mimic," the latter of which was a striking figure with dark blue, light blue, red, and silver. This guy? He's got yellow and black. It's not bad, but it doesn't "pop." With the price increase, my guess is we're seeing a pushback against increasing wages in China and other inflationary things.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Crayboth Grellanym Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Crayboth Grellanym Action FigureFor every figure from Onell Design there is usually an equal and opposite figure. Crayboth Grellanym is the flipside of Gryganull, a pink plastic figure with green highlights. The pair debuted a few months ago, and took center stage in a pretty fun flash game which I could best describe as a horizontally scrolling Space Invaders clone. It was pretty good, and if the figures weren't already on the way to selling out this would make them move a lot faster. They vanished quickly.
