Review: Onell Design Glyos Greeden Action Figure


Onell Design Glyos Greeden Action FigureAfter a wonderful run of Adventure People tributes, Onell Design turns to a galaxy far, far away with Greeden. Based on a very specific style of figure from Kenner, their 1979 off-model Cantina aliens were official products with the kind of authenticity usually reserved for bootlegs. Thanks to a lack of good scrap and apparently lax approvals, we got a figure with a good approximation of the mask - but a costume that seems out of a daily sci-fi newspaper strip. Never being one to miss a good tribute, Onell Design ran with Greedo's look and applied it to Pheyden.

More Onell Design - Thursday Night Drop

https://onelldesign.blogspot.com/2018/11/crush-clan.html
Onell Design confirmed in a post Crush the Clan that a new drop is coming this week! Including items from D-Con and possibly new things, set your clocks for 9:30 PM EST for the fun on Thursday November 29.  Click here for comments and hints.

A Deadpool-themed Callgrim, a new TMNG-themed Noboto, and a Quallerran that looked like Wolverine were sold at D-Con. Will they be here? I hope so!

Also I will sadly not be here for the drop, so if anyone can grab menu pictures please write me and I would greatly appreciate it!

Review: Outer Space Men Zero Gravity Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Zero Gravity Action Figure I was expecting a glow-in-the-dark version of Jack Asteroid - which we got - but to get a new character like Zero Gravity too? I'm surprised. He costs more than the original Jack Asteroid figure and has less paint, but the dude friggin' glows. The fully Glyos-compatible astronaut has alternate bent/straight arms and can be taken apart at nearly every point of articulation, and then some. That little moon ingot pops off, the helmet dismantles to 3 pieces, and the figure has an ab and a belt joint. The mold should look familiar - it was first released as the glow-in-the-dark Alpha Phase Metamorpho in 2010, and was subsequently released as multiple Metamorpho and Jack Asteroid bodies, most of which was reused for other figures in the first couple years of the line. It's the perfect generic humanoid template, they could keep more heads coming and I'd probably buy even more redeco figures.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Glyceptor


Onell Design Glyos Glyceptor Action FigureSome of these are really clever. The Glyceptor references Fisher-Price's Adventure People Alpha Interceptor pilot, a blue-capped human inside an orange space suit with silver gloves and some distinctive markings - which this deftly references. The clear Sarvos helmet has a lot of color on and under it, giving it a magical otherworldly quality that does a good job of selling the idea that this might be from some weird part of space.

Q&A with Jesse DeStasio - Action Figure of the Month Club

Jesse DeStasio of Toy Pizza fame reached out and asked if we want to do a Q&A about his new Kickstarter, Action Figure of the Month Club.  Of course we scraped up some questions from some conversations we were having with friends about the topic, and dumped those here for you.  Thanks for answering, Jesse!

He was also kind enough to share an original illustration of the Device Ninja Poster artwork, so enjoy!

Click here to see the Kickstarter with 15 days to go.



1. How will Action Figure of the Month affect your semi-regular surprise Toy Pizza drops?  Will those still continue? - Glyos News Dump
We will still have drops in the store throughout 2019, but they will be smaller in nature. Also, instead of All-Ins once or twice a year, the focus will be smaller boxsets that tell a specific story (the recent LA Knights set is a good example).  -Jesse DeStasio

2. Will any of the figures be available in Toy Pizza drops after they go out to club members? - GND
Yes, pending availability. It's a bit of a moving target at the moment, but the intent is any surplus will be on the store sometime long after the AFTOM club has been fulfilled.   -JD

3. Do you plan to reserve anything specifically for the club - for example, glow in the dark, or metallic paint, or some other feature?
- GND
Yes to all of those. Ultimately it will be depend on how many backers we get, but I'd love to see really cool styles go out to club members.
  -JD
4. Will the club be 100% Toy Pizza characters and IP, or might there be guest appearances from other members of the Glyos family? - GND
I would say it'll be 90%-99% Toy Pizza related. There are a couple of interesting opportunities that have presented themselves, but nothing is solidified yet. I also did some polling and overwhelmingly our customers wanted to keep it just KOTS. But....if I saw an opportunity to collaborate that was too good to pass up, I would take it.   -JD

5. Do you have any plans for some sort of ridable thing - a vehicle, a creature with a saddle - for your toy line? - GND
Sadly, no. No vehicles, no beasts of burden. The days of those anniclary items being affordable are long gone. As much as I would love to have something like that, the tooling burden is too great and your customer base is much smaller. Sad.  -JD

6. Do you expect to have newly tooled parts or entirely new figures in every month's drop? - GND
Depends on how much we raise. Right now I think at least 1/3 to half of the months could end up being new parts or entirely new figures. The nature of planning something with so little runway means we'll be relying on our existing tools to get the first few months done. But the good news is "existing tools" includes two very big projects no one has seen yet. So even in those cases, there will be some newness.   -JD

7. The Glyos-compatible community is tightly knit, but sort of hard to follow all the goings-on.  Is there any chance you might include call-outs to other compatible figures in the boxes as well? - GND
It's an interesting idea, but we don't have boxes (just pvc bags) and there isn't much opportunity for cross-selling. In that polling I mentioned early, I was surprised that the feedback from customers was they want a more pure-KOTS experience. I admit KOTS is a bit of an anomaly as far as other Glyos lines go...there is a much more metered cross-over with core Glyos.   -JD

8. Is there a core action figure-adjacent kind of toy you want to do but haven't done yet?  A playset, figure stands, or other distinctive display or storage items? - GND
I'd love to do it all! I have designs for a couple mechs that would be financial suicide. I think at the end of the day we are a figure company and for the immediate future we have to keep growing that business.   -JD

9. There have been a number of Kickstarters and other projects making brand-new NES and GameBoy games lately - from ROMs to actual full manufacture of a cartridge.  When do we get the Knights of the Slice 8-bit extravaganza? - GND
Ha! I dream about this all the time. Drew Wise, who's probably the best pixel artist out there, and I have discussed a Snatcher-style RPG done the old school way. Like an interactive narrative. The problem with ideas like this is- it's very difficult to take myself off the actual production of the figures to do other things. At this moment we have 4 different products in different stages of the production cycle amongst three different factories. If I skip even a day of answering emails, the wheels come off the cart.   -JD

10. With sporadic releases from Hasbro and Mattel, it's entirely possible your Action Figure of the Month project may be the only 3 3/4-inch action figure being released during several months in 2019.  Do you plan on doing anything special to reach out to fans of the size that maybe haven't taken the plunge on an indie figure or a Glyos figure yet?-  GND
Absolutely. In many ways this campaign is tailored more towards new fans than current fans. I wanted to create a great jumping on point for people who might be new to the hobby or have been on the fence about Glyos or KOTS. My hope is, by tapping into the idea of the mail-away surprise figures we all got as kids, there would be a universally happy memory people would embrace. So far, the theory's proven true.   -JD

11. To date, your figures have primarily arrived bagged.  Will we ever see special carded or boxed editions of your Glyos-compatible characters?  Perhaps little white boxes with bags that say "Toy Pizza" on them? - GND
I have started doing our first carded figures within the past few weeks, with a official launch of them at DCON later this month. It took a long time to find the right printing house and the right approach. Each carded figure will be hand deco'd or have resin pieces and the cardbacks will be hand drawn.   -JD

For the club, the packaging is super-super important to me. I've budgeted a quarter of the entire cost to solely go to how these will arrive. While the plain white mailer is appealing to me and you, we do have a lot of younger customer that that would be lost on.

But yes, I'm zeroing in on what our presentation will be and it's one of the most crucial elements of what will eventually arrive in your mailbox. 
  -JD

12. Will all of the figures in the subscription program be Glyos-compatible? - GND
Again, with a couple opportunities on the horizon it's tough to say. But I would say i'm 90% certain every month will be Glyos-compatible.
For me to break the streak of having each month work with the other, it would have to be such a tremendous bonus.
  -JD

Review: Onell Design Glyos Pheyalien


Onell Design Glyos Pheyalien Action FigureNow this is nicely obscure. The Pheyalien is a tribute to 1983's Alpha Star Alien [FOTD #643] - a toy I treasured as a kid, had to sell as a slightly older kid, and then re-bought as test shots and a MISB sample I opened in college. Over the years I've seen a lot of this with different spray and deco changes, and this Glyos tribute to it seems to be of the most common one - a yellow figure with lots of exposed underbelly and green eyes.

Review: Outer Space Men Astrodite Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Astrodite Action FigureFigures like the long-awaited Astrodite make me wish the Four Horsemen's "Hopper Block" figure stands came out - she could benefit from a display stand. The exquisitely-sculpted figure made her debut at a Toy Fair-adjacent Four Horsemen-run party and exhibition where toy nerds ran rampant in 2013. We were waiting for this one for five years, continuing the proud tradition of making fans wait for The Outer Space Men. The figure finally shipped to American fans in 2018, with some mail orders taking a little while, but the important thing is she landed. Effectively a female Commander Comet [FOTD #330], Astrodite takes the same Glyos-based construction and gives you a new character whose ankles touch and make her hard to balance. It's still awesome.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Mechabon Gendrone Revolution


Onell Design Glyos Mechabon Gendrone Revolution Action FigureNew molds in Glyos are far apart these days, so a new figure like the Mechabon Gendrone Revolution is exciting. It's $20, but it does double duty as a Gobon-adjacent robot and as a new form factor for ToyFinity's RoboForce. You get a lot out of this mold, with lots of big parts and cool weapons. The last all-new mold I recall was the Villser, which I must confess I have yet to actually purchase. But the Mechabon, this is the thing. You want this.

Review: The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cthulhu Nautilus Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cthulhu Nautilus Action FigureAbsolutely no toy line has the right to employ the phrase "a long time coming" like The Outer Space Men. The line is 50 years old, and some of the toys took nearly 40 years from concept to product. The 45 years it took to get Gamma-X makes Cthulhu Nautilus seem speedy by comparison - the figure was teased in 2011 as a concept drawing, while the coloring and head were based on toymaker Mel Birnkrant's massive imagination. In addition to The Outer Space Men, Birnkrant also came up with dozens of other lines like the unrealized Monstro-City, and this 2018 Cthulhu Nautilus head looks a heck of a lot like a Cthulhu-inspired creature from that toy pitch.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Vlixden - Available Tonight at 9:30 PM EDT


Onell Design Glyos Vlixden Action FigureI can't believe this exists, either. I'm very excited as I type this.
To celebrate 2,000 Figure of the Day reviews, I asked the Onell Design chief if there might be something we can preview here early back in the spring - he did me one better and asked if I might like to collaborate on something, asking if there was anything I might like to see referenced in Glyos. I had a list of ideas going but I assumed if you're going to celebrate 2,000 reviews here and another 2,500 or so on Galactic Hunter, you probably want to go with the most-referenced holy grail/white whale - so this is what I suggested for it. Vlixden references Vlix, a figure truly deserving the title "rare" which I found out existed around 1989 and have been chasing ever since. I was very young then and I assumed by now I'd have one. I was wrong. The price can get comparable to a car.

Onell Design Glyos Retro Altrovos


Onell Design Glyos Retro Altrovos Action FigureAbout a year after the similar Neo Astrovos [FOTD #1,797], the yellow Retro Altrovos was a mystery figure of a figure I actually had as a kid. It pays tribute to the yellow Astro Knight from Fisher Price's Adventure People series, which I got from a neighbor at a garage sale at some point. The bizarre yellow figure had angled shoulder joints and legs fused together, removing vehicle compatibility while augmenting its ability to look like a super hero. This figure takes the color scheme and applies it to the template we saw last year - and of course, I love it. It's also not too far off from Samus Aran, which I'd absolutely love to see some day - of course given my druthers, I'd probably pick something more esoteric for one of these figures. But I digress.

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
