Cappy Space Drop Menu June 9, 2023

Click here to see what's left at Cappy Space!  The new Phibians and Belfry even have accessory packs, so it's a pretty neat set. The little guys are about the size of Crayboth figures.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Gendrone Legion Phaseon Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Gendrone Legion Phaseon Action FigureAnother great figure that has been on my display for over a decade, the cool swirly blue Gendrone Legion Phaseon has aged well. That's something you don't know when you write reviews of new toys. The mold started life as Beanbots, then they got retooled a bit and became another great robot toy. I think this was also the last painted Phaseon figure to be sold for $6 - subsequent releases were usually plussed up with Gobon Blasters, new heads, a cape, or other bonus parts.

They Blue It - Astrodite Bluestar Now Available

 Better late than never. The 2022 ASTRODITE BLUESTAR was posted to the Outer Space Men Shop on June 8, 2023.  She's a surprisingly cheap $15.  (If they lowered the prices on the other figures to $15, I think I'd order 'em all and complete my set - I only have the first four so far.)   She looks good, order her here.

New Cappy Space Drop Friday, June 9 with Bat? Ogre? Who Knows?

All we know is that we don't know nothing.  Cappy Space is showing off some preview images on Instagram.  One is a green hand coming out of a pond with a sword.  The other is the back of a bat-like head.  What does it all mean?  If I knew that, I wouldn't be writing this filler copy.   Click here to see his insta, or check the Cappy Space Bazaar on Friday, June 9, at 9:00 PM Eastern.  Or as we call it, synergy.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Arthrodak Dark Nebula

Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Arthrodak Dark Nebula Action FigureI sometimes take too long to get to good figures, like the long-sold-out Armorvor Arthrodak Dark Nebula figure from 2019. The sheer amount of pre-pandemic stuff I got to get through before I drop dead is shameful, because there's so much good stuff out there and somehow nobody is writing about any of it.

ToyFinity Drop Menu - May 28, 2023

 Manglors and Mordles and Eggs, oh my!  The proto deco is here, but so is the purple Dactylian flavor! Neato.   At $20 the purple Manglor is actually quite cheap, and comes highly recommended if you don't already have one.  Click here to check availability.  The Standard Manglor is also still up for grabs, and that's a gem of a good figure.  I hope you got one if you wanted one!

Healey Made Menu: May 27, 2023

 Something new!  Technically.  Version 2 of the Raider (Shadow) is here, and it has a few new paint applications plus that nifty cape we've seen on a few figures.  I went ahead and ordered one so you can see a comparison shortly.  Click here to check availability.

Review: Toy Pizza Noir Knight and Apotheosis Capsule Set

Toy Pizza Noir Knight and Apotheosis Capsule SetI waited probably too long to get the Noir Knight and Apotheosis Capsule Set too. I got it at New York Comic Con in 2019 while shuffling around before the opening of the last fan event I've been to since the whole thing went down in 2020 - and I'm not sure why I waited but I think I may have misplaced a few parts for a while. That's why you review thing quickly, kids. The mold of the figure was new to me, and I couldn't resist getting a Batman-flavored armored guy along with a shiny gold case that reminded me of the old C-3PO Carry Case. What a deal!

Healey Made New Raider on Saturday 5/27

Coming Saturday at 2:00 PM Eastern, it's a new Raider!  May the 27th be with you.   It was on the Healey Made Instagram's stories section and those evaporate.  But this is what the picture looked like.  I assume it's going to be a Shadow Raider Redux, as it was teased previously, but we'll see for sure soon.

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Astrodite Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Astrodite Action FigureI love glow figures, but too much of a good thing is possible. Cosmic Radiation Astrodite stayed in her baggie since I got her in 2018! White Star is still bagged, but I opened Astrodite Infinity Edition [FOTD #2,025] immediately. She's good! But the allure of repaints diminishes as time goes on - especially when it's a repaint of a figure you have to look like another figure you have. I'd love to see more variations on this mold, and while glow is exactly the kind of thing I want (and bought) she's just another glowing figure on a shelf of glowing figures. Excellent, but not special.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Pheyden Bio Phantom Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Pheyden Bio Phantom Action FigureClear white? Why not! Pheyden Bio Phantom is a color of plastic we don't see in toys very much. We've had milky blue Game Boy Advance systems and all sorts of clear colorless plastic, but other than Ahsoka's white lightsabers I have a hard time pointing to other action figures using this unique color. Pheyaos, Glyans, and Manglord figures were also released in these colors - plus some appropriate accessories.
