I don't know what it is specifically, but the comments say "3 figures, existing sculpts." So I'd assume nifty gifty versions of Trooper, Assassin, and Raider - if you don't already have them in another colorway, mark your calendars and bookmark the Healey Made Shop.

I missed a few! But you can order Onell Design Wave 99 right now. Glow-in-the-dark, black, silver, and green plastic figures are up for grabs while supplies last, so check the store. A glow-in-the-dark Gauss Armor plus nifty new configurations of the Buildman and others should make this an exciting drop... if you got to it in time.
As I write this the Phanost Core Clone hasn't been posted, so you'll have to let me know how it turns out.

Figures expected include a new flavor of Hades (pictured), Kaisyriax, and some sort of Buildman-adjacent fellow of whom you can see in silhouette on their post.

While not limited to 1138 pieces, the Trooper (THX) hit during Comic-Con in San Diego and was a highlight... of things not at the show. When this figure first appeared, you could pick out a lot of Stormtrooper elements so it seemed a given that it would be sold as a white Stormtrooper some day. And I was close - this is a black plastic figure with a nice layer of non-glossy white paint on it. I was expecting a white plastic figure with black painted bodysuit elements. Who knew?

As one of the second year prototypes from the 1960s, most people didn't get any flavor of the figure that would become Bluestar Gamma-X until about 10 years ago. He's neat! Peak midcentury design with nifty b-movie antennae, clamp-on armor, and a couple of blasters make for a notable figure. You can get him in green, a painted version, or a white version - but the blue one is pretty spectacular. The blue back armor is glow plastic with a painted blue interior! It's striking, to say the least.

What can you say about the nameless (but I'm calling it) Traveler Stowaway Light Blue 2023 Pheyden that hasn't been said about other figures? It's colored just like Pheyden Prime and matches the Light Blue 2023 parts and pieces, with no paint other than the eyes. There's a subtle pink ring in each eye, which makes this figure a distant colorway cousin of Queen Kirallius [FOTD #2,186] from 2020.

A somewhat familiar face! The Traveler Gearius Granthan Drifter figure is at least the fourth iteration of Gearius, but he's also a bit like Gears Edge Pheyden [FOTD #8] from the very first wave of Onell Design figures. It's a good, realistic look with a brown body and an orange head. And a blue head. Also two brown heads. And a couple of capes, a scarf, and an alternate torso. It's a pity Onell Design never put together arm and feet expansion sets, because you almost get two whole figures in a little baggie.

The Glyos toy lines have a few - very few - vehicles, and some of them are pretty amazing. I couldn't say no to the Warp Bike Firespray, especially after missing the glow one and some other colors. A new vehicle? For Glyos? In Kenner Boba Fett colors? How could I not pick this up? It's three chunks of vinyl, some of which (not the big front end) were later used by Onell Design for their vehicles. According to my research (checking a Wiki) this was the third and final release of the mold. I hope they do more some day.

Having launched at a surprisingly fair (if not cheap) $15, Bluestar Maximilian Gravity is kind of a fascinating figure. (The Cosmic Radiation Zero Gravity [FOTD #2,310] was $25!) As of my writing this there have been four versions of this mold - or rather, this head - and three of them glow in the dark. It's a little silly, but I'll allow it. The first ones were called "Zero Gravity" and now they're being sold as Maximilian Gravity.
