Review: Onell Design Glyos Ecroyex Guardian Syclodoc Action Figure
Ever since its introduction, variations on the Ecroyex Guardian Syclodoc have had one or two heads - this one has two to choose from, which is nice. It also sports that swell Glyaxia symbol on the shoulder, which is one of the reasons I bought it. Sure, it looked cool, but I like that logo so much I want it on a t-shirt.
Standing at about 4 1/2-inches tall, this vinyl monster is made of 11 pieces of vinyl and the parts can be swapped with some other toys, like the Rig, the Block, or the giant Mordle. This time around, the figure has been given a giant red eye with a white dot in the center and grey panel lines - as few Glyos figures have panel lines lately, it's neat to see again. The bright red really pops in the Syclodoc's head, while the alternate Armodoc noggin looks like a drawing that came to life. The colors contrast nicely and the grey looks like it fell out of some weird ancient space painting. It's worth noting that the paint color matching is exquisite - the light blue arm and leg pieces are molded in light blue, while the head highlights are painted light blue. This is tough to pull off well, but it seems Onell Design always gets it right somehow.
