Callgrim Incoming: Strawgrim DX Callgrim Fragarian Drops on Friday

It's been a while, but with good cause.  Something smells awesome!  A new Callgrim figure (we don't know the name, so let's go with Strawgrim it's DX Callgrim Fragrian) is coming Friday, November 2, at 9 PM Eastern.  This reportedly scented action figure is the first-ever Glyos release to include, according to our source, (thank you Jesse!) vintage Kenner Strawberry Shortcake odors.  That's pretty amazing and arguably one of the only ways to make this line even more awesome.  What next, ooze?  Nicely done, Jesse!

Read all about it on the Callgrim Blog.
And read this updated post too.

Micronaut-Themed Glyan Custom from Nanite

Friend of the site Nanite alerted us to a new custom sale, and the awesome Micronaut Glyan was too awesome to not share.

Other Crayboth, Glyans, and a couple of other odds and ends can be seen in his October Toys Posting.  Do check them out!

Goboids Glyos-Compatible Spiderboids Drop on Wednesday

If you missed the Goboids drop a little while back (and you did), you may be particularly interested in the Goboids Spiderboids, the next drop which takes place in just a few hours.  At noon central time on October 24, 2012, you can buy one of these orange, black, and glittery brains for the low-low price of $20.  (They're hand-cast, not a bad deal for a large, finely-decorated piece.)  Creator Talyn writes:

"Cast in transparent orange resin with orange glitter and a creepy toy spider embedded within! Fin is black with orange glitter. Extremely limited run to celebrate the Halloween holiday."

Glyos Onell Design October 20 2012 Drop Menu

If you weren't online and ready to buy, you may have missed out.  This batch of Armorvors lasted about 12 minutes, with the purple Neo Nebula Pheyden selling out first and all three Armorvors going next.  Verexxan Armorvor (grey) sold first, followed quickly by Neo Nebula Armorvor, with Spectre Armorvor taking a few more minutes.

With only 5 total figures, it was a pretty small drop and an easy one to buy in its entirety.  (If you were early, of course.)  The Armorvors had a limit of 1 per figure with Pheyden at 2 per figure.

Stealth Crayboth is still in stock at press time.

This was not a record sell-through, as some have asked: the last batch (clear and black) took about 8 minutes and the first figure took several times that.

Review: Spy Monkey Creations Weaponeers of Monkaa Empyreus Action Figure

This is a neat one. We saw some big expansions in Glyos in the last year, with Banimon and Spy Monkey Creations adding to the pile of PVC parts we already had from Onell Design, the Four Horsemen, and RawShark Studios. The new Weaponeers of Monkaa line is basically 1 pack of weapons and 1 figure painted and configured in multiple ways, so you can pick up Empyreus (or any of the figures) and get many, but not all, of the parts available in that color. At about 5 1/2-inches tall at the ears, this figure is one of the larger Glyos releases and feels heavier than his siblings. While closer in size to the Outer Space Men, the figure has more parts and feels significantly chunkier, plus these have many-- arguably too many-- options for display. One figure is enough to keep someone busy for a while because there's a bunch you can do to swap around parts, much like Bionicle and other constructable figures.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Nonilla Pheyden Action Figure

I'm trying to cut back on my purchases but usually regret it. I did buy Nonilla Pheyden but skipped the ultra-cool "Remnant" version, which makes me sad to this day. It's not that I regret my purchase so much as I was completely unaware Onell Design would be sending everybody a free Nonilla Crayboth on the house with their orders. But I digress. The cool thing about the Nonilla Pheyden is that Onell Poobah Matt Doughty indicated that this unique coloring was inspired by October Toys' own Z.O.M.B.I.E. line of mini-figures.

Glyos October Sneak Peeks at NYCC

Well!  If this isn't a surprise, I don't know what is.  A few reports between our pal Seth, the Twitter, and October Toys Forums have revealed a few items we can expect in the coming weeks, or perhaps month(s).
  • Strawberry Shortcake-inspired (and scented) Callgrim, the first-ever scented Glyos figure
  • Glow-in-the-dark Armorvor (green painted highlights)
  • Purple Armorvor (grey furry head)
  • Grey Armorvor (orange? furry head)
Be sure to swing by the October Toys Forums for more on the nifty newness.  The image is courtesy of/stolen from October Toys forum member lhssenior, so go read his post and commentary and more so I feel like less of a filthy thief.

Onell Design Says Purple Is The New Black (Not Really)

The fine crew at Onell Design posted 3 sneak peeks from October's Glyos drop.  The good news: well, that's really good news.  A clear Stealth Crayboth finally makes his debut, and is joined by the purple Neo-Nebula Pheyden and a matching purple Armorvor, plus more to be revealed.  Are you excited?  I'm excited.  These will be available at New York Comic Con this weekend, and for those of us not at the show, online shortly.

To see more, go to New York.  Or the Glyos Transmissions Web Log.

NYCC 2012 Glyos Happenings: The Schedule, The Booths

There's going to be a whole mess of people at the Onell Design (and friends) booth at New York Comic Con!  They rotate the occupants every few hours, so you people there for the whole show will see an insane amount of fantastic, wonderful plastic things.  Other booths have things for you Glyos fans, too!

Here are your known destinations for Glyos at the show:

#556: Action Figure Xpress: Outer Space Men
#3321: Ni Stuff: Ni's Stuff
#3216: Onell Design (Shared): Dang near everything
#3303: Toy Tokyo: Outer Space Men

I will not be able to attend, so if you're there please take pictures and send me links to your blog entries, or send me your pics to post.  I'd love to see what we're all missing!

The full, long breakdown at booth #3216 (Onell, Callgrim, TGB, etc.) is after the break. (Clicky clicky, it's the same thing from Onell Design because I copied it and pasted it here as I am a lazy thief.)   Be sure to stop by, The Godbeast always has something awesome to surprise you.  Bring cash.  You'll thank me after you spend all of it.

Goboids Preview Wave Launched, Sold Out

 Over the weekend, some large custom Goboids brains went on sale and abruptly sold out.  With about 8 one-off pieces, this low run was pretty much assured to go quickly.

Each head sold for about $20 and looks great on Gobon bodies.  And Monkaa too.  Heck, just check it out, you're in for a treat.

We'll do our best to keep you posted on the next run so you can get one!

Weaponeers of Monkaa: Empyreus Exploded

To the left, behold Empyreus, we knew him well.  The figure is part of the Weaponeers of Monkaa action figure line, one of many new Glyos-compatible lines not from Onell Design.

The picture, which comes from a review we'll be posting next week, showcases all the many parts you get in the $12.00 figure.  I just figured you would want to see this sooner than later, so there are all 28 plastic parts.

Also notable, Empyreus is pretty much the same red as Venjorun Armorvor, and his chest square fits (albeit loosely) on the Armorvor buck to give you a flat surface on which to put any fire/wood/water stickers you may have handy.  Sure, it's a big flat surface, but odds are you'll be making your own stickers anyway.  The Monkaa weapons also fit nicely into Armorvor hands, so hey, good times.

Spy Monkey Creations' Weaponeers of Monkaa On Sale Today

After a soft launch at Power-Con 2012, the Spy Monkey Creations Weaponeers of Monkaa toy line goes on sale today.

To tease/celebrate, they posted a wide variety of alternate figure builds in addition to the ones that are already coming.

With Banimon last week and Monkaa today, it's just the tip of the iceberg for October.  New items are expected for New York Comic Con from other Glyos makers, including another (small) Onell Design Glyos drop!
