New Glyos: Rise of the Beasts Tentatively Set for November 15 Release

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1658393310/rise-of-the-beasts-series-1/posts/1029169?at=BAh7CDoMcG9zdF9pZGkDMbQPSSIIdWlkBjoGRVRpAyWFEkkiC2V4cGlyeQY7BlRJIhgyMDE0LTExLTI1IDAxOjUzOjM1BjsGVA%3D%3D--3ec7106e1564d979d8e41d802b1eaa4782503936
Since their reveal a few years ago, people have been asking "So did those Rise of the Beasts figures ever get made?" The answer is yes - this Kickstarter update shows the production thus far, and puts forth a tentative November 15 release date in the Little Rubber Guys store.

The figures transitioned from just another figure line to a Glyos-compatible series with the requisite recolors.   They're also quite cheap - $4 per unpainted figure (black, gold, flesh) or $7 per painted figure (1 of each style).  So that's 8 figures you can buy. 

More surprisingly - agonizingly so - are four bonus painted mail-in redemption figures.  Buy 10 figures, submit 10 special stickers, and get a random figure.  One is pictured here - they're pretty frustratingly gorgeous and I hope they consider selling them outright, because I'd pay for a set.

Onell Drop Menu - Sunday's Brunch

http://onelldesign.blogspot.com/2014/10/mini-mission-details.html
A very Crayboth-heavy Onell Design Glyos Tracker's Way drop includes a Halloween themed figure or two, plus some vinyl and a nifty $12 Tracker Sarvos Conversion Set.  Everything can be found here, so be ready on Sunday for the release.

And of course, just in case the Internet swallowed the Onell Design post, I'm going to go ahead and post the stuff below for your amusement.

Mythic Legions Site Live Now

After its debut at the Four Horsemen event in February, people have been asking "So when is this Mythic Legions thing happening?"   MythicLegions.com is live right now with a page featuring 13 named characters - this is news!

No release dates, pricing, or other specifics are known - but it's progress.  I expect something in early 2015.  As always, we'll throw up a notice somewhere as soon as any way to get these is announced somewhere.

Review: Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhino and Scorpion


Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhino and Scorpion Gold Action FiguresAs of when I write this, I don't know much about the long-gestating Rhino and Scorpion. Prototypes for these and other 2 1/2-inch scale mini figures have been around since Rise of the Beasts was a Kickstarter project back in early 2012. Creator Jon Karis assured me that the line would come to fruition and I have to admit I had my doubts - but the figures are here! And they're pretty good - painted samples exist, as do flesh figures and a sort of a bone-colored sample. No on-sale date is known, but backers were given their choice of figures as a promo piece - the original plan was for a golden lion, which is not in the immediate future plans.

Get Ready: Onell Design Drop on Sunday

http://onelldesign.blogspot.com/2014/10/tracker-type.html
Get ready!  In a new post called "Tracker Type", Onell Design confirms that there will indeed be a new Glyos drop at 9:30 PM on Sunday, October 26 - just before Halloween! Promised: Halloweeny Crayboth. Also promised: the new Armorvor head isn't ready.

Matt Doughty confirms that the cherry-like Sarvos is a nod to the very first Custom Corps release (and Matt Trakker of M.A.S.K.), and I must say it does look swell.  More soon! Don't miss it!
