Review: Onell Design Glyos Alphaden

Onell Design Glyos Alphaden Action FigureThe 2017 (and so far, 2018) Onell Design Mystery figures have been thematically based on Adventure People Space figures of old. Alphaden was decorated to vaguely match the pilots of the Alpha Probe vehicle, complete with variant hair coloring.

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Xodiac Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Xodiac Action FigureFor a toy line that has proven popular, The Outer Space Men captures the imagination with strange designs. Like this one. The Cosmic Radiation Xodiac is the second Xodiac figure to have a beard, so I reached out to series designer Mel Birnkrant to ask what the deal was with the beard - is it meat? Is it hair? "It's both!" He told me - hey, that works.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Optivos

Onell Design Glyos Optivos Action FigureAdventure People-inspired Onell Design Mystery figures continue with Optivos! I was assuming that an Opticon homage would use the Core Block [FOTD #592] vinyl mold, alas it was not to be. We haven't seen any vinyl since 2016, either. (I think.)

Review: Onell Design Glyos Deathboto

Onell Design Glyos Deathboto Action FigureThe Deathboto continues the surprising customization potential of the Noboto mold. Gobon's robot pal has been all sorts of things, even Gremlins or Ninja Turtles, and earlier this year he was a Skullboto. The Deathboto takes the same template, but the red parts are black and he has awesome red dots in his black empty eye sockets plus a painted crack in his skull. For plastic, it's very metal.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Astro-Nautilus Redborg Syndicate

Onell Design Glyos Astro-Nautilus Redborg Syndicate Action FigureI'm a big fan of the Outer Space Men figures, especially the occasional crossovers done with Onell Design. Astro-Nautilus Redborg Syndicate was stamped out in clear yellow plastic with a hefty slathering of paint and a nice armory, too. It also costs over twice what the original release did in 2010.
