Review: Onell Design Glyos Glyrecon Action Figure


Onell Design Glyos Glyrecon Action FigureGenerally speaking, you can't go wrong with a good mystery figure. The Glyrecon is the Alpha Recon driver from the old Adventure People line, but in Glyos form. You get a cool helmeted head, a Pheyden head, a bird head, and a bunch of armor bits. It didn't sell out opening night, so hopefully you got one if you wanted one.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Glyninja Ukoro Action Figure


Onell Design Glyos Glyninja Ukoro Action FigureI can't say no to a nice homage, and 2016 was packed with them. Glyninja Ukoro is a tribute to the Shredder, a famous nemesis of the green teens. "Oroku Saki" has been lovingly recreated in grey Glyan Glyos parts with an add-on Neo Sarvos armor bits. It's a gem.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Piloden - Mystery Figure from February 2018 Drop


Onell Design Glyos Piloden Action FigureIf you love Adventure People, Onell Design shows you their love with Piloden! This one is an interesting take on something that could have been a straight redeco. The original Adventure People Alpha Pilot (in grey) used the Alpha Star Pilot's body, but cast it in grey. Onell Design paid homage to this figure last year, but this new one has a different head - Pheyden's. They also did some snappy things with the paint that continue to make me think Onell Design can do literally anything at this point.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Copper Crayboth


Onell Design Glyos Copper Crayboth Action FigureAnother freebie! The Copper Crayboth you see here came in a box in 2018 - but it looks a lot like a picture of the Sendollest Crayboth from 2015 which I don't (think I) have. There aren't a lot of comparison photos of these things out there, so this could be that one - and if it is, I'll correct this in the future.

Culture Pirates Releases Space Series Character Bit Figs

https://shop.culturepirates.com/collections/all/bit-figs
Culture Pirates has been selling Bit Figs, previously things like ninjas and animals.  Adorable, kid-friendly, and cheap toys that are perfect in this era of expensive Minecraft collectibles.
Tonight?  "Space Series."  Your eyes do not deceive you - you're seeing Pheyden, Crayboth, Glyan, Qualloid, and Astroloc.  Astroloc is, of course, new.

At the Onell Design blog you can see the vending machine header cards that we'll hopefully see, meaning Pheyden could well finally appear in actual real toy stores across the USA.  

Order yours here.

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.

Review: The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Gemini Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Gemini Action FigureThis one came out fairly late. Sometimes you never know what you want until you get it. I liked seeing the various Outer Space Men in various colors, but the pigment-free versions left me a little cold. I rather liked the three figure designs that didn't previously get the White Star treatment, more than many of the ones that did. When we were teased that White Star Gemini would exist, part of me was a little miffed it wasn't in color. But I'd be lying if I said it didn't turn out nicely - there's a lot of blue here that breaks up the white. It's good. I won't say it's as amazing as some of the other Gemini they've put out, but it's very good and it does a nice job of showing you the sculpting. Unlike, say, the clear ones.

Review: The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Metamorpho Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Metamorpho Action FigureDoes this one look familiar to you? The Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Metamorpho is new, but a glow in the dark Metamorpho was sold way back in July of 2010 as the very first release of this line, a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive. I reviewed it shortly before Figure of the Day launched - and it's different. This new one has a greenish hue rather than a bone one, and has completely different decoration.  

This new one is better.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Sarvostar


Onell Design Glyos Sarvostar Action FigureI missed the Sarvostar but Matt had one and sent it to me - thanks, Matt! What I love about it is that it looks just like the vintage Alpha Star driver. What I didn't like was that my vintage Alpha Star driver cracked at the crotch while I was taking these pictures, which is surprising given that it was a sealed-box one I bought in college to replace the one my parents made me sell as a kid, and saw little to no actual playtime. I guess life isn't fair, but I digress. This set has a scarf, four heads, two bodies, and a set of limbs - just enough to not make two full figures. The alternate parts are to make a variant Alphaden Commaynder or whatever it is, based on the bearded sci-fi figure from Fisher Price of old.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Traveler Xycoss Clone


Onell Design Glyos Traveler Xycoss Clone Action FigureSurprises are fun, and the Traveler Xycoss Clone was surprising design taking cues from a few of the Adventure People-themed figures from 2017. The sub-line was a treat, and this clear red figure has silver markings while the Rayexx and Pheytron figures sported other colors. The Traveler Xycoss Clone isn't as ornate, but it's plenty cool.
