Review: Onell Design Glyos Gendrone Ultra Corps Mimic Armorvor Action Figure


Onell Design Glyos Gendrone Ultra Corps Mimic Armorvor Action FigureSince its introduction a few years ago, this particular figure has been released in dozens of colors and tends to sell out quickly. Oddly the Gendrone Ultra Corps Mimic Armorvor stuck around for weeks - I'm not sure why, the silver plastic looks pretty fantastic - and for all I know it'd take to dye well, if you're into that sort of thing. It's the same 18-piece figure as always, which means that not only can you swap parts with other releases, but you're also potentially satisfied with the size of your Armorvor collection at this point as we round 20 flavors.

Review: ToyFinity Mordles Quinhozs Vinyl Figure

ToyFinity Mordles Quinhozs Vinyl FigureAnother one! Thankfully ToyFinity has kept the big Mordle releases tight, so figures like this Mordles Quinhozs Vinyl Figure aren't part of an endless, tiresome parade of expensive vinyl - instead, we've had 3 so far and each one is pretty cool for different reasons. The line kicked off with red, switched to glow in the dark, and now we're going for a Jaws-inspired grey figure with cold, black eyes of death and a little white patch on his chin/belly/whatever it is. I'm quite fond of the design, the original red figure has remained on my desk since I got him.

Review: NiStuff 481 Universe Maigus Action Figure


NiStuff 481 Universe Maigus Action FigureTime can do a lot to temper my enthusiasm for a toy, and I'm glad to say Maigus aged well. The endless parade of redeco opportunities in the Glyos system means that you can burn out on a figure quickly - some stand out as being a little more different, and this is one of them. The metallic mix of silver and blue plastic is a great start, but painting elements green, yellow, and red? That's a solid idea. It looks like someone melted a box of crayons on a figure, producing something wonderful.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Ecroyex Mimic Armorvor Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Ecroyex Mimic Armorvor Action FigureIt's impossible to look at the Ecroyex Mimic Armorvor and not love it. Depending on how old you are, you'll see any of a number of inspirations. Perhaps the blue with red will remind you of some of the "stealth" Iron Man action figures. Perhaps the silver head and blue body will remind you of Micronauts, with the name coming off as a garbled up variation on "Acroyear."

Review: TheGodBeast Customs Glyos Red Sharkorvor Head Glyos Accessory


TheGodBeast Customs Glyos Red Sharkorvor Head Glyos AccessoryI got the Sharkorvor head a while back, and let me tell you it's pretty sweet. Like many of the other harder hand-molded heads, TheGodBeast cast these in a variety of colors so you could paint them and use them as you see fit - mine came in clear red, but these were often treated more as a "kit" than a part unto themselves. Many Glyos collectors will customize or modify parts, but I see this as a sin so I left it as it came to me - and I think I'm going to leave it that way.
