This is a neat one. We saw some big expansions in Glyos in the last year, with Banimon and Spy Monkey Creations adding to the pile of PVC parts we already had from Onell Design, the Four Horsemen, and RawShark Studios. The new Weaponeers of Monkaa line is basically 1 pack of weapons and 1 figure painted and configured in multiple ways, so you can pick up Empyreus (or any of the figures) and get many, but not all, of the parts available in that color. At about 5 1/2-inches tall at the ears, this figure is one of the larger Glyos releases and feels heavier than his siblings. While closer in size to the Outer Space Men, the figure has more parts and feels significantly chunkier, plus these have many-- arguably too many-- options for display. One figure is enough to keep someone busy for a while because there's a bunch you can do to swap around parts, much like Bionicle and other constructable figures.
