Review: Onell Design Glyos Walruden


Onell Design Glyos Walruden Action FigureTributes to the Kenner Star Wars cantina continues with the 2 3/4-inch Walruden. Before he was known as Ponda Baba or "Buttface," Walrus Man was a green-skinned swim-finned alien Kenner sold that didn't quite match the movie version. With no available reference, toy designers made it look cool based on the available reference material, and got it wrong, and Lucasfilm still approved it. 41 years later, Onell Design pays tribute to it with this remarkable redeco of their own character Pheyden in Walrus Man colors.

https://toypizza.myshopify.com/collections/april-collection/products/pre-order-mikros-3-pack-wave-2-epd
Hot on the heels of the sold-out wave 1 (which arrived at the Dump today), now you can grab PRE-ORDER: Mikros 3 Pack Wave 2 - EPDClick here for the store and the gold-headed splendor.
Reviews of wave 1 will probably be up early next month.  (Hey, I have a backlog.)

In short, I love wave 1 enough to recommend wave 2 to you.  They're good 3 3/4-inch figures in the style of classic Micronauts toys.

Pre-orders are due by April 19, 2019!

Reminder: Knights of the Slice "Mikros" Today

https://www.instagram.com/p/BvzeVGdHXs5/
Teal, Brick, and Lime totally not Micronauts Knights of the Slice are going up at 12:00 PM EDT Thursday!  (Which may be today where you live now!)  These are 3 3/4-inch figures with silver heads and clear bodies, based on the popular and before-my-time Micronauts action figures from Mego (and previously, Takara.)  I pray they do not sell out before I get mine... and I hope I can get that purple one somehow too.

Review: Toy Pizza Desert Rat LRDG Version Action Figure


Toy Pizza Desert Rat LRDG Version Action FigureToys are a weird business. If you're a fan, you might meet the makers and designers of your favorite toys - often before they become famous. The Desert Rat LRDG Version from Toy Pizza mastermind Jesse DeStasio is Onell Design Matt Doughty. I met Matt maybe 10 or more years ago at Comic-Con in San Diego when he was carrying around what I believe was an early version of Pheyden - I may be misremembering - before he built his empire of customization and toys adult collectibles with other makers. Interestingly, this isn't even the first concept for Matt Doughty as an action figure - Mel Birnkrant came up with Midshipman Matt Meteor, which seems like it may never be an actual release. But we have the Desert Rat! I'm jealous of the name, too.
