Review: Outer Space Men Bluestar Metamorpho Action Figure

http://16bit.com/fotd/200723-osm-gitd-2019-blue-metamorpho.shtmlAs shared experiences go, toys are great. Unfortunately The Outer Space Men are one not shared by my peers - they're before my time, but I love the designs as sci-fi space race-era toys go ever since I saw them in Action Figure Digest, which was a real magazine a million years ago. For this reason, Bluestar Metamorpho is a fun, weird figure that stands on his own. [ READ THE FULL REVIEW ]

Healey Made Menu - July 17, 2020

https://healeymade.com/collections/live-shop
While mostly sold out, Healey Made's drop Friday was pretty great!  Venge-74 and Droll-40 were great nods to comic books - perfect for what would've been the lead-up to SDCC - and the vinyl Bellum (Dark/Father) is appealing to another fan group.  Click here to see what sold out.

Get Spaced Out Thursday - New Glyos Incoming

http://spaced-out-design.blogspot.com/2020/07/resurrection.html
We live in an era where good news is a scarcity, and just about anything can change your day. Maybe the baby hippo at the zoo had gas and made a face, or perhaps someone famous you don't like stubbed their toe.  Thankfully today's fortune requires no misery or suffering, because Spaced Out Design has new figures Thursday at 9:00 PM Eastern.  The rocky, mossy preview above is all we have so far, but it's something, and I'll take it.  Click here to read more on their blog.

Review: Healey Made Raider (Hunter) Action Figure

http://16bit.com/fotd/200702-healey-hunter-raider.shtml
The Healey Made account announced they were doing a "420" launch and didn't tease what it might be. I figured something green - but they already did a clear green figure. I did not at all expect the Raider (Hunter) Action Figure, which takes design cues from Kenner's original 1979 Boba Fett action figure and does a pretty good job evoking the classic, unusual, off-model colors of the figure. It's not a perfect match, but it's pretty good.

Review: Onell Design Armorvor Cerrek Commando Gorellux

http://www.16bit.com/fotd/200625-glyos-armorvor-gorellux.shtml
In the first eight years of the Armorvor's life, it experienced multiple releases with the Wolf head and the Dinosaur head. Dozens. Painfully large quantities. But Armorvor Cerrek Commando Gorellux comes out now as the whopping fifth new Armorvor head in a year! We've had a fish, a dragon, a cougar, and a cyborg wolf - and now we can go ape.
